I am so glad to be starting another book, for the club! I thought that it was extremely interesting to read about Henry's writing style and how he was perceived during his life as a GREAT author. I am intrigued to see how some of the writing styles mentioned are used in this novel.

I found another web site that has many many novels to read online for free, Portrait is one of them, if you want to peek before you have time to get the book.

Great sight Kelley Belley!!!!!!!! I also followed a link that Kelley might be interested in. Bookrags.com has a historical context that would give you a little history of the time that the novel was written. I found it helpful. The period of Enlightenment is summarized. Apparently very important to this novel. As I read it, it only gave one page of the historical context. It was enough to refresh my memory of this time period.

Tim has a Bachelors in Math, minor in secondary education and never got a job teaching. He ended up teaching at a pharmacy tech school in Denver and a computer programmer during the millenium phase of 1999-2002.


What do you do Karen?

Hmmmm, well she did get a degree, just finished a year at Adams state as the assistant volleyball coach, plans to work in durango this summer and then play volleyball in Spain in the fall. She is not as driven as Brienne, but she is not dependent on us or a man, so I think she is going to turn out ok
