This week I'm reading Barefoot In The Rain by Roxanne St. Claire. My sister raved over the book and offered to lend me her copy. While I didn't realize it was the second book in a series, I'm quite enjoying it and don't feel lost at all that I haven't read the first book, Barefoot In The Sand.
Barefoot In The Rain deals with domestic abuse and Alzheimer's Disease. Both are handled very well with great care and sensitivity. I haven't finished the book yet, I'm only about three-fourths the way through it. Even though I haven't finished it, I would recommend it to anyone looking for a great read.
