July 9, 2006: Book Review: The Solace of Leaving Early
This second book by Haven Kimmel is just fabulous. (If you haven't read her first, the memoir A Girl Called Zippy, run to the nearest library and check it out immediately!) The story features two ridiculously obsessive and much too philosophical characters who are forced together because of a small-town crisis. I absolutely despised the annoying character of Langston for much of the book, but she is ultimately redeemed in her role as foster mother to two little girls. A heavy read at times--and much flawed religious thought--but well worth it.
