Inner Beauty Friday - Book Club


It's Friday again and time for my book club link up with Blonde...Undercover Blonde:

This week I read The Magic of Ordinary Days.

Here is the synopsis from "Olivia Dunne, a studious minister's daughter who dreams of being an archaeologist, never thought that the drama of World War II would affect her quiet life in Denver. An exhilarating flirtation reshapes her life, though, and she finds herself banished to a rural Colorado outpost, married to a man she hardly knows. Overwhelmed by loneliness, Olivia tentatively tries to establish a new life, finding much-needed friendship and solace in two Japanese American sisters who are living at a nearby internment camp. When Olivia unwittingly becomes an accomplice to a crime and is faced with betrayal, she finally confronts her own desires."

My thoughts:  That synopsis pretty much tells the whole story, no need to read the book.  The book just skims the surface of the characters it would have been really interesting to have another point of view.  It does touch on some interesting historical facts, but ultimately leaves you with a "that's all?" kind of feeling.

Until Next Friday!
