Unabridged Chick

I'm Audra, a 30-something married lesbian. I love interesting heroines, gorgeous prose, place as character, and the occasional werewolf.

Coming-of-age in the 1920s, Egypt, friendships, dads...

The Visitors - Sally Beauman

Real review to come someday but I just inhaled this one -- it's helped me stay out of my reading funk.  Emotional, interesting, with a 10-year-old narrator who feels authentic -- both observant and ignorant -- and enough historical details to make the setting -- 1920s Egypt and England -- feel worthwhile without being overdone.
