Many of you had the fortune to be in the path of Sunday’s magnificent annular eclipse. While this blogger was not able to view the awesome sight, I, like many, marveled at images taken by those who enjoyed the privilege.
Three days after the event, I picked up at random a newly arrived title and began to read. Imagine my reaction when I discovered that the characters are–to greater or lesser degrees–anticipating a total solar eclipse that will be visible in a very limited area. As they await the celestial event, everyone learns something about each other–and themselves. The novel? Every Soul a Star by Wendy Mass. Like her other stories that I have had the pleasure of reading, this promises to be a treasure.
