Sorry kids, no feet.

I am a stay at home mom with three girls. All of the time I should spend cleaning or making things I see on Pinterest is usually spent reading instead. Pinterest can get expensive. The library is free. At least until I rack up the fines for overdue books. If I'm not reading something that interests me, I'm listening to my seven year old read to me about fairies or princesses or fairy princesses. If she's not reading to me, I'm reading to my four year old twins about Batman or Star Wars or Legos. We value diversity around here.

The Girl in the Glass Tower - Elizabeth Fremantle

So close to perfect. Every other Fremantle novel I have read has driven me to a puddle of mush by the end. This novel came close but just didn't quite make it. While I felt for Arbella, I just didn't like the Ami subplot. Ami as the story's vessel just didn't work for me as much as someone like Levina from Sisters of Treason.
