I am very surprised at how quickly I became engrossed in Shawhan's novel. I had just finished reading another book before I picked up "Lizzie". My previous book was an exceptionally satisfying read and my evening was already drawing to a close. I don't usually embark on a new adventure when I have just finished one. I like to let the previous book soak into me for a while. But my curiosity about Shawhan's "Lizzie" was overwhelming. It took all my will power to not stay up and read it all night! I can't wait to get home this evening and pick it up again!

Four months after reading "Lizzie", I am still thinking about this woman! Dorthy Shawhan has done a remarkable work of creating a living, breathing woman. I feel like I should make arrangements to call on Lizzie and see how she is getting along. Shawhan's craftsmanship as a researcher, writer and storyteller is superb. Here's hoping Shawhan has been busy writing us another wonderful book!
