It's been a hectic week with work and parent's evening and library book club, but I've made time to start Louise Erdrich's novel The Painted Drum and to enjoy my pale pink hyacinths.
I've been meaning to catch up with the recent work of Louise Erdrich and I'm glad I did. The Painted Drum is the kind of novel that is difficult to put down. All the old favourite characters are there, or alluded to, Nanapush and Fleur Pillager, but I really like Faye Travers the woman who finds the drum.
I'll let you know how I get on.
