Normally, I enjoy books with lots of action and intrigue. I am a sucker a good military hero. But every now and then fate drops a book in your lap that is just perfect! This is the story of a museum historian and one of his former students. There are no jealous exes or super villains to contend with. Just two men trying to solve their issues and find the best paths in life. And the way that language is used is simply lush and beautiful. It is quiet, eloquent, and incredible. This is the kind of book that earns a permanent slot on your e-reader or ends up being the dog eared paperback that you turn to when you need to be reminded why you are a reader.

I’m not that masochistic. And I’m through waiting.”
