I stumbled upon my first Molly Gloss book several years ago. It was a short novel entitled, "Jump-off Creek". I loved her writing and the crafting of her story left me wanting more. I was thrilled to find her latest at Reader's Guide a week ago, "The Hearts of Horses".
Once again, I'm falling in love with her characters. Doesn't hurt that she's an Oregon author.
Last night, N and I did something unusual. We pulled out our Netflix movie on a week night. That rarely happens! It was a 2006 film, "The Namesake". While it didn't rank as amazing, it was a good story with excellent acting--although it seemed a little long towards the end. I'd describe it as both a coming of age type of film and finding enlightenment.
