Book Review: December 7, 2014

…since you often recommend books to others on your blog, I am going to campaign for this one!! It is called “The Homesman” by Glendon Swarthout, who wrote “The Shootist” and They Came to Cordura” and “Bless the Beasts & Children”. I read this book about 4-5 years ago and loved it, but after a couple years, I wanted to read it again, but had forgotten title and author….UNTIL very recently, I saw an article about a movie that Tommy Lee Jones was directing and Hillary Swank was starring in called…..(wait for it)….”The Homesman”!!! When they gave a brief description, I knew I had stumbled on the same story.
Louisa, If I know you at all, I think you will LOVE this book. Not a long read, but hard to put down. Do give it a whirl before the movie comes out.
I ordered it this morning. June and I have been sharing book reviews for many, many years.
