Welcome, Marilyn! I was worried you'd decided against joining us when we didn't hear from you for so long. I'm so glad that is not the case. There is still half a month left, so you have plenty of time for Eve. It's a very fast read. And despite my earlier skepticism (Kami, why do we have to read a church book??!!!), I found it well-researched and enjoyable. I would tell you my few criticisms, but I don't want to bias you before you read it for yourself.
Can't wait to hear all your future thoughts!
PS Just because Kami and I have final say in book selection, and we started this little book group, doesn't mean we are the "moderators" or "leaders" or anything. If any of you have friends who would be interested in our group, we are certainly willing to have them join. We'd be delighted, in fact. Fresh blood, different perspective, and all those other good things.
PPS My children's names are Miriam (6), Cowen (5), Emeline (3--yes, she was named after the Mormon feminist Emmeline B. Wells), Eli (1). I love names, so I was so glad you shared. I already knew, though, because I spent WAY too long one night scanning through your blogs to figure it out. Love your kids' names!
