I’m going to be taking a break for a couple of days starting later this morning and spend some quality time with my sister. We’re going on a gambling/shopping trip starting by heading to Winstar Casino today and heading to Norman tomorrow.
I lost my regular “road trip buddy” earlier this month very unexpectedly so this is sort of a tribute to her. When we went anywhere there HAD to be a casino nearby and lots of shopping sites available . It was not uncommon for her to stay up all night while I would go back to the room around 9pm or 10pm and the next day she’d be ready to brave all the malls and out shop me. I miss her horribly but my sister is picking up the slack by becoming my new “road trip buddy”.
See you when I get back!
PS – Wish me luck!

Lucy Jarrett is at a crossroads in her life, still haunted by her father’s unresolved death a decade earlier. She returns to her hometown in Upstate New York, The Lake of Dreams, and, late one night, she cracks the lock of a window seat and discovers a collection of objects. They appear to be idle curiosities, but soon Lucy realizes that she has stumbled across a dark secret from her family’s past, one that will radically change her—and the future of her family—forever.
This was my second listening of this book and I liked it more this time around as is usually the case.
The characters are well-defined and developed, locations are described vividly and the story is multi-faceted and wonderful. If you or anyone you know is interested in genealogy or ancestry then this book is for you. Lucy discovers things about a relative that had been left out of the family history and she searches and locates all the information needed to properly do her justice. It’s a wonderful story of travel, love, heart-break and the importance of family history.
