Fascinating time and a really interesting woman - yes. For me, I enjoyed the historical fiction book about the same group of fossil hunters in the same time period, Remarkable Creatures, better. If you are writing fiction, then by all means you can make the mental jump someone was devastated about something. That sort of writing was jarring enough for me with The Fossil Hunter, I had a hard time pushing past it.
At any rate, this week, I received my auto-download of The House of Hawthorne, for my book published this year selection. I've become thoroughly engrossed in this story and am about halfway through the book already, enjoying it greatly! When I'm finished this, it'll be on to the The Joy Luck Club (and then I'll only be a few weeks behind......)
