What do you think? Would you keep reading?
Although this sounds like a “bird book” it is actually a love story. I am not usually drawn to love stories or romance, but this novel sounds like it has a strong female character and a substantive plot—qualities I enjoy in a story.
In her sweeping debut novel, Elizabeth J. Church takes us from the World War II years in Chicago to the vast sun-parched canyons of New Mexico in the 1970s as we follow the journey of a driven, spirited young woman, Meridian Wallace, whose scientific ambitions are subverted by the expectations of her era.
