by Joanne Harris
Comments: It's been awhile since I read this one, so I don't know how much I can remember about it. I do remember that I enjoyed it, but not as much as I enjoyed Chocolat and Blackberry Wine, my two favorites by this author. Harris used to be one of those writers I would automatically buy, as soon as a new book came out, I had to have it. But then I read Coastliners, which, while a decent enough book, was a disappointment all the same. I attributed this to reading to many by the author at once, I usually like to space things out a bit.
So, late last year I decided I might would give her a chance again and added a couple of books to my Amazon wish list. Well, my MIL and SIL both bought me two of the books I added; Holy Fools and Sleep, Pale Sister. Soooo, obviously, I had to read them.
Holy Fools was good, much better than Coastliners. Although, come to think of it, I can't remember what I didn't like about Coastliners. Hmmm….
Anyway, it's familiar territory to previous Harris books. Strong, independant female lead. Religious themes. All in all a decent book. Probably won't reread, but enjoyable.
