Waiting on Wednesday




Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.







This week my pick is
Take Good Care of the Garden and the Dogs: Family, Friends and Faith in Small Town Alaska by Heather Lende
Several years ago I read Lende's first memoir, If You Lived Here I'd Know Your Name about her life in small-town Alaska and absolutely loved it. My husband also read it and thought it was great. I think he talked about moving to Alaska for a while after that, even.
Lende's newest book is due out on May 18, 2010
