Passion is best expressed with a good book

I love books, have been an avid reader all my life, and the best thing is, I love almost every kind of book out there, so I know I will never run out of discovering that next great book. I am always available to proofread any interesting book, just for the pleasure of being able to read it.

Wish I could give this 10 stars.

The Bronze Horseman  - Paullina Simons

I do not usually read romances, but I was drawn to this book because it was also about the Siege of Leningrad. This book is 900 plus pages and I read it in less than 3 days the first time. I could not put it down, and I felt like I was in Leningrad when I was reading it. I would look up in surprise that the electricity was still on, or that there was food in the house, that is how deeply you become involved in the story. This was the most epic romance I have ever read or heard of, and Alexander has become  my all time favorite character. There are also two following books, The Summer Garden and Tatiana and Alexander, which I read and are just as wonderful as The Bronze Horseman. I will never forget this story.
