What I'm Reading

I finished my true crime book -- did a lot of reading over the rainy weekend -- and there is one unusual suspect, but the murders of these young women goes unsolved.

So now it's on to a novel -- this time a time travel novel:

I haven't started it yet, but here's what Amazon says:

Greer cleverly reinvents that always popular staple: the time-travel novel. The story opens in 1985 as a severely depressed Greta Wells undergoes electroshock therapy in order to cope with the death of her beloved twin brother and a devastating personal betrayal by her long-term significant other. With each treatment, she is whisked back and forth through three different lives, landing in 1918, 1941, or 1985. As the eras change, she carries her circle of family and friends with her, and the setting—New York’s charming West Village—remains a paradoxically evolving constant. Despite the fact that she is essentially the same person in every life, her choices, dictated as much by time and place as by personality and free will, are radically dissimilar. Philosophically intriguing as well as gorgeously imagined and executed, this novel will catch fire with the same audience that propelled Audrey Niffenegger’s The Time Traveler’s Wife (2003) to the top of the best-seller list.
