I'm just at a loss as to how this is going to be a good book group discussion I can't see that there is much to ponder hereThe book is not easy to start In the first thirty pages Ashford introduces over a dozen characters and the introductions are clumsy While eventually the characters get straight and actually come to be truly uniue people at first I was just frustrated So I'm just ambivalent about this book I enjoyed it but it's much less than I think a book group needs to fill an hour with than I liked that And the sex Oy vay We can't discuss that in the middle of Powell's

Spellcast Maggie Graham #1Theatre She hadn't planned to audition yet soon found herself part of the summer stock cast But her previous acting experiences couldn't prepare he Originally Posted at hours of having a completely uiet and catatonic wife my husband had to interrupt and ask Must be a really good book huh? He said I looked up with this look of awe on my face and said It's like nothing I've ever read before And that's exactly how I felt; how I still feel even days later To be completely honest when Ms Ashford asked me to read her book I was nervous that I would find it hard to connect with the story being that I'm not a thespian nor have I ever stepped foot on stage But I shouldn't have worried about that because Ashford's love for the theater runs deep enough for the both of us You can feel the warmth of that love radiate from the way she describes something as simple as stage direction to the way she elaborates on something as important and complex as method acting It boils down to the skill she has in writing about something she so clearly loves It's become a part of her soul and she's been kind enough to share that part of her soul with us So if you're worried because like me you're not a theater buff please don't let that stop you from picking up this touching and heartfelt tale The book is a complete mystery for the majority of it You will guess that you know what's going on in this strange Vermont town with this cast of unusual yet somehow realistic characters but then something will happen and you'll think well that's new Maybe I don't really get what's happening Eventually you stop trying to figure everything out and just go with it The story that unfolds is one that is so stirring in a fantastic way that it'll stay with you long after the last page is read The connections I made with the characters are lasting and I'm anxious to see what story they have to tell me next From the very first page I was drawn in by the voice and the tone of the book Hell here's the first page Tell me you don't want from this character On a scale of one to ten the day has registered 95 on the Suck Scale even before I climbed into the bathtub with my bottle of Talisker First the I'm sorry but the recent merger means that we'll have to let some people go speech at work Then the horrifically exuberant letter from some college classmate that exclaimed Hurry Maggie only a few days left to register for our tenth reunionNow it appeared to be snowing Inside my bathroomI gazed heavenward and frowned A few moments ago the crack in the ceiling has merely struck me as a depressing metaphor for my life Now it has blossomed into a giant spiderwebMesmerized by whisky and the sheer improbability of yet another disaster I watched the web expand Like a character in a movie who stands on the frozen lake while you're shouting at the screen The ice is creaking up you moronWhen the first chunk of plaster struck my knee I grabbed the Talisker and scrambled to safety Seconds later a chunk the size of my microwave plummeted into the tub sending a small tidal wave lapping across my feetI stared at the iceberg of plaster floating in the tub at the gaping hole in my ceiling at the water racing down the hallway The I did what any strong self reliant New Yorker would do after surviving the loss of her job and the reminder of ten years of lackluster achievement on both personal and professional front I criedBottom Line I can only guess that I'm feeling much like the first person who read Jane Austen or William Shakespeare's first work must have felt This book this author these characters they're keepers
