I mentioned in my previous post that I’ve been lolling about all day. The reason for this, besides the fact that it is the Sunday of Memorial Day Weekend, is because I am reading a novel I cannot put down.
The book is called The Monk Downstairs by Tim Farrington and it is about a cynical single mother who falls in love with a former monk who has lost his faith in his vocation. I’m enjoying it so much, its kind of a "women’s novel" for lack of a better term, but deep. Apparently Tim Farrington has written numerous novels, including a sequel to this one that just came out, called, (wait for it) The Monk Upstairs.
I’ve got a couple great novels lined up from the library to read, including the latest from Lionel Shriver but once I’m done with those I’m going to have to start reading everything from Tim Farrington .
