Today I finished a novel that I was reading for myself...not to my children, not a parenting book...a novel that I actually picked for myself. That hasn't happened in a LONG time! I am hoping that once Kaylee and Aaron go back to school I will have more time to read. I have a long list of books that I would like to read...all in good time I guess. I do love reading with my kids, but I can only take so much of Junie B. Jones!
I read The Undaunted by Gerald N. Lund. It took me a couple of months to read, granted it is 800 pages, but it was a pretty slow read for me. Gerald N. Lund is also the author of The Work and The Glory series which I LOVED so my expectations were pretty high and the Undaunted just did not compare...it was still good, but not great.
The Undaunted is a historical fiction novel about the miracle of the Hole-In-The-Rock Pioneers.
