Happy Book Birthday to Sara Gruen and her new book At the Water’s Edge! Back in November we received this beautiful basket from Sara and her team at Random House and I was SO excited.
I loved Water for Elephants and Ape House so much that this moved right to the top of my ToBeRead pile. At the Water’s Edge brings the same sense of magical realism I loved in Water of Elephants and the characters are so well thought out and brought to life. Maddie and Ellis Hyde are on their way to Scotland in the midst of World War II to try and find the Loch Ness monster and regain favor with Ellis’ father back in Philadelphia. I so fell in love with Maddie, Angus, Meg, Anna and Scotland in general and am leaving for my own Scottish adventure in two weeks! Maybe I’ll find Nessy myself…. 🙂
