The weekend's here...







My pick for the weekend is another book from my bookshelf - Second Hand Heart by Catherine Ryan Hyde, originally purchased way back in October 2010. I remember buying the book because it looked like a 'Jodi Picoult' type read - and as she's one of my favourite authors, I thought that it was worth trying. When I looked more closely at the author , I realised that I had read one of her previous books - Love in the Present Tense - which if I'm honest, I didn't really rate very highly - but everyone deserves a second chance -and I'm always in awe of anyone who has the ability to write and be published...
I'm fascinated by the concept of genetic memory, and the notion that our cells maintain our personality even when our organs are harvested and used as donor gifts....this book explores that concept - and fosters the belief that love is perpetual, and everlasting.

Jaffa's a bit bored with this one - and keeps falling asleep - time will tell if it picks up....
