Barefoot by Elin Hilderbrand







This was a book that I had put on my Nook quite a while back.  I think I got it for free -- or almost free.  I was doing a bit of cleaning up on the Nook the other day, archiving and deleting and I started looking at what I had put on the thing and decided I should start reading some of the material that was there.  So, I started here.

I don't know what possessed me to ever buy this book to begin with.  It is about three young women -- two sisters and a best friend.  They are all going through their own private situations -- cheating husbands, surprise pregnancies, ruined careers, and cancer.  This was probably not a good choice for me since I am still living the cancer nightmare but the storyline was so compelling, I just couldn't put it down.

I would recommend this book unless you are in the throes of a serious illness.  It made me nervous.  Otherwise, it was a good read.
