I'm in love.

It was hard enough to put this book down long enough to take a picture. It's nearly impossible to lay it on the nightstand overnight. Tom McNeal writes like a dream in "To Be Sung Underwater," the hypnotic, heart-wrenching story of a woman who ventures to find her first love, a man she left behind when she went off to college 27 years ago. It's not a page-turner, in the sense that you can't wait to see what happens next.  It's a book that invites you to savor each sentence, each scene. For that reason, I don't know when I'll finish it, but I don't need to know how the story ends to highly recommend it.
