Today’s Booking Through Thursday question is:
What’s the most romantic book you’ve ever read?
(Mind you, I don’t mean the hard-core stuff you hide in plain wrappers under your mattress. I mean True Love, Romance, deeply emotional, heart-tugging, and all that stuff.)
And, secondly, did you like it? Is it your usual kind of reading, or did it take you by surprise?
I read romances. Lots and lots of romances. I don’t hide anything under my mattress, so I reckon that all of those love stories qualify for this question. But that makes it a really hard question to answer.
My choice is River of Fire by Mary Jo Putney (Goodreads link) which is not only about a romance that improves the lives of two troubled characters, but also about how the love of a creative pursuit, in this case painting, can be a shared salvation.
