The story of a marriage

I started reading The Complete Book of Claudia by Rose Franken a few days ago. When people see me with it, all 1,211 pages of it, the responses have been, "Business or pleasure?" and "Are you reading a dictionary?"

But it's good, really it is. Claudia is young and in love and married to a man she adores (David), which is something I need right now. Not a romance novel in the regular sense, not a Chick Lit book with some happy ending cliche, and not a "My Best Friends Wedding" style tale of true love with no resolution. Just an honest portrait of a woman who is happy with her choices, happy with family and the kinds of adventure that brings.

Plus, I really need to read something that isn't about library science...
