Wednesday is for failing...

Hi friends. We didn't forget you today. David is suffering from a nasty cold and all of our books are living in boxes in anticipation of moving on Saturday. So no Wednesdays with David for you.

I do have a review ready to go for tomorrow, so make sure to come back and read all about The Watery Part  of the World.

Theodosia Burr, daughter of Aaron Burr, believed to be  lost at sea

"She thought of Theodosia, how she’d come to this island with a man so far from the type she’d been brought up to love. He taught her how to get by, how to love this island that in Theo’s day was at its grandest, though Theo lived long enough to see it start to dwindle down to what it was now: just the three of them. Her great-great-great-grandmother had spent all her life looking, trying to fill some hole – just like Maggie – and in the end she found her happiness right here on this island.”


  1. I read a book about Theodosia Burr by Anya Seton, called My Theodosia and I have found her so fascinating since then. Can't wait for your review!

    And good luck with your move! I will pray to the moving gods that everything goes well and nonstressfully!

    1. I will have to look up the Seton book. Mysteries seem to get better with the passage of time.

      Thank you so much! One should always have the moving gods on their side. :)
