While I was on vacation I read a great book: Rise and Shine by Anna Quindlen. She is a fabulous author who is also a journalist (I have a thing for journalists who write books). This book is about two sisters who live in NYC. One is a social worker in the Bronx, the other is a t.v. journalist for a national t.v. show. Quindlen also writes about the city so well, it's practically the third main character. It makes me want to go back to NYC and stroll along the sidewalks. I highly recommend this book. It's a fun, entertaining read that also tugs at the heartstrings. It also went well with the many, many pina colada's I drank pool/beach side while reading.
