The first book in this batch is one I've passed over at least a dozen times. Then, when my stepsister, Donna, included it in a big bag of books she gave me a couple months ago, I read all but one of the others before finally picking up this one. And don't I feel stupid for that now. I had judged the book by even less than its cover--the title turned me off--and it's a wonderful story.
Sometimes the truth of a cliché just smacks you in the face.
