Footnote: I did want to mention that I received Ted Dekker's "Boneman's Daughters" yesterday. I guess I was on the tail end of the wave of mail out; since many others have had the chance to review it and have posted about it already. I was looking forward to reading it and reviewing it here but since it got here late I am going to do the others that are in priority on my succession list first & sneak this one when I am more caught up. If it got here just a few days before then I would be reading it now. And the book is now available for purchase (for about $17 at Target). But I wanted to say I was thrilled that I had finally had gotten it, I had seen some great reviews on it and I knew it was going to be a goodie. I am the type that stays more in my preferred genre of Historical Fiction/nonfiction but I do enjoy a once-a-month off my beaten path look at something different, and this one looks to be an exciting world of horror and suspense; I haven't done one of those in a very long time. So even though we are not in Pre-Publication status anymore, I am definitely Waiting on Time to be able to delve into this one!
