Tough weekend- my son left to spend a month studying engineering in PA.  I will admit, there were tears-mine.  So, on to the books-I sound like a broken record when I say AGAIN, that I wasn’t that into reading that much this week. so, here is what happened-

This week, I finished-

The Prodigal by Michael Hurley

17929231

For 2,000 years, Christendom has believed that faith and penitence are the narrow gates through which all who seek heaven must pass, and that the church on Earth holds the key. What if a forgotten relic, hidden inside an abandoned ship thought to have been lost at sea more than a century ago, suddenly reappeared and cast doubt on that belief? Who would seek to use it? Who would seek to destroy it? And whose lives would it forever change? Aidan Sharpe, a disbarred and penniless lawyer trying to rebuild his life on Ocracoke Island, finds love and destiny as he seeks the answers to these questions.

What’s up next?The 100 Year Old Man Who Climbed Out of a Window and Disappeared by Jonas Jonasson.

Synopsis-A reluctant centenarian much like Forrest Gump (if Gump were an explosives expert with a fondness for vodka) decides it’s not too late to start over…

After a long and eventful life, Allan Karlsson ends up in a nursing home, believing it to be his last stop. The only problem is that he’s still in good health, and in one day, he turns 100. A big celebration is in the works, but Allan really isn’t interested (and he’d like a bit more control over his vodka consumption). So he decides to escape. He climbs out the window in his slippers and embarks on a hilarious and entirely unexpected journey, involving, among other surprises, a suitcase stuffed with cash, some unpleasant criminals, a friendly hot-dog stand operator, and an elephant (not to mention a death by elephant).
