Book ReviewHeartwood by Belva Plain
This was one of those nearly-random choices from the library. It was available in large print and it was available at my local library when I needed something to read.
It looks girly. I don't usually go for the girly books, unless I'm specifically seeking out "fluff."
The description didn't make this sound like it was going to be in the "fluff" category.
But I had never heard of Belva Plain. I didn't know if it was going to be too girly. Time to try her out.
Then I found out that this is the last book she wrote before she died.
I still didn't know what to expect and I essentially had no expectations.
It's always better to start out that way.
