Last Reads of 2010

#13 A Girl of the Limberlost by Gene Stratton-Porter: I had grown up watching a movie version of this book so reading the actual story was quite enlightening and of course the movie took many liberties with the character. While it was a sweet story and I liked it, there were some long, long cheesy speeches.

#14 Train to Potevka by Mike Ramsdell: The first part of the book was the most interesting part. The author is LDS and a spy during the cold war. The climax of the book was at the beginning and then it kind of just goes along. Then he got a little too spiritual for my taste. So it was an okay read but nothing special. A good writer though.

#15 The First Princess of Wales by Karen Harper: I really liked this book. It chronicles Joan of Kent's life from when she first goes to court and immediately catches the eye of the Prince of Wales, however though their passion for each other is strong, Joan is sidetracked by marriages and family issues, but eventually she weds the Prince, her true love. A sweet romantic story.

I'm trying to figure out your numbering system. Are these books you've read this year or what? Anyway, the spy book sounds very interesting even with the spiritual side. In a spy book, that could be very intriguing.
