What I'm reading (1)

I tend to read fiction in spurts.  For the last three weeks I've read four novels, three old and one relatively new.  I'll start with the new one,  My Sister's Bones by Nuala Ellwood.

This is a wonderful, modern psychological thriller.  It is an essential read for those who want to understand those war correspondents who go time and time again into the fray in Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan and then come home in shreds sharing the PTSD that the soldiers who serve there also carry.  It also is a cautionary tale about family dynamics.

I highly recommend it.  It is at once hard and beautiful and haunting.
