My friend Eileen recently posted that she couldn’t put down “The Signature of All Things” – when I saw it was written by Elizabeth Gilbert (of Eat, Prat, Love fame) it immediately jumped to the top of my list. I too was hooked within the first chapter – the story is told so vividly and it makes me marvel at the creativity of writers to create such characters and scenes. It’s long (almost 500 pages) but I read it within a week – the best kind of book! I’d highly recommend it!!
