The Flight of Gemma Hardy
True confession #1: For some reason I confuse Margot Livesey with Penelope Lively. And they’re nothing alike.
True confession #2: I’m pretty sure I bought this book twice…in hard cover, because I wanted to read it that bad. And I still can’t find the first copy of the book that I’m positive I bought. (And if that’s not an argument for an e-book, I don’t know what is. Because did you know that the B&N nook app won’t let you buy the same book twice? (And yes, I know this from experience.) This is just one of the many reasons why I love technology).
True confession #3: I loved the book, so I don’t care that I probably paid for it twice.
True confession #4: I’m dreaming of a trip to Iceland.
True confession #5: I might’ve spent way too much time waiting for something to crawl out of the attic…and being disappointed that it never did.
True confession #6: I also spent way too much time wondering why Gemma never read Jane Eyre and recognized her own life story. I mean really…she was a well-read girl. Don’t you think she should’ve read the book at some point??
Okay. Enough of the true confessions. This is modern re-telling of Jane Eyre, and it’s a great story.
That is all.
