Monday night we went to an adoption celebration. The "guest book", if you will, was a tree that everyone added their thumb print onto. Clever idea, no?
My husband finished The Long Ships, a historical fiction about Vikings written in 1954 originally in Swedish. Because Hubby talked so much about it, I had to read it. A New York Times reviewer on the back of the book refers to the writing as "sly humor." I sent this excerpt to friends this week, as an example of the excellent writing. The setting is a three-day feast for the main character's son's baptism.
