State of Wonder by Ann Patchett
I read a LOT of books...several hundred a year, often a book a day. And ever so often I happen upon a book that flows & feels like poetry...and this one does. I didn't think Ms. Patchett could top "The Magician's Assistant" or "The Patron Saint of Liars" as my favorites, but she has. I highly recommend this beautifully crafted story (well, I've loved every single one of her books...if you haven't yet discovered her writing, I highly recommend her.) This one comes out June 7, 2011.
One of my favorite quotes:
"Instead of growing up inquisitive and restless, she had developed a profound desire to stay, as if her center of gravity was so low it connected her directly to this particular patch of earth." Page 45
