Book o' the Month: Under the Wide and Starry Sky

Under the Wide and Starry Sky is a novel by Nancy Horan about the lives of Fanny Van de Grift Stevenson and her husband, Robert Louis.  Yes, R.L.S., that Stevenson, the one who wrote Treasure Island and Kidnapped which many of us had to read in school.  Which many of us were lucky enough to read in school!

What I enjoyed most about this book was discovering the course their lives took and how they eventually ended up in Samoa, Fanny living out her final days near Santa Barbara, CA.

I will also be reading another book soon on the same subject, Stevenson's Treasure by Mark Wiederanders.

With school out in a week, I am going to need good books to escape to...
