I had forgotten about this book, I didn't read it at the time either but now that I have read your review I may well pick it next time I go shopping. Thank you for posting your review.

I just ordered "A Northern Light" from my library. Thanks for the words on this book, and if it can stand with "To Kill A Mockingbird" that says it all for me. I am so often disappointed with a book that gets a lot of hype - perhaps my expectations are just too high on going into the book!
I was thinking of you this afternoon, as I was putting together a Moroccan meal - not because Morocco and you came together in my mind, but I get the feeling you may have taken some cooking lessons, or just love to cook. I went to a cooking class on Thursday evening - it was Moroccan cooking and I loved everything that was prepared! So on this showery, windy day, I have some nice spicy - not hot, just spicy with lots of cumin, garlic, ginger, coriander and lemon going on to fill the house with fragrancy of the gastric variety!

The on-line catalog shows that this is available at our local library, as well. One of my unannounced reading goals for this year was to read more historical fiction, and this fits right in.

Evidently, this is the same crime that inspired Theodore Dreiser's novel, _An American Tragedy_, another classic To Be Read, so those two would make good companion reads.
