I agree. I intend to mention this to the publisher when they come on -- I hope for the sake of older readers that they will be adjusting this in the final edition.
I think, therefore I drive people nuts.

Got my copy last week. Read it over the weekend. My first book from First Look and my first book club. Never read any of O'Nan's other works. Now of course I have to go to the library and see what else they have from him.
I really enjoy the intro letter from the author and it gave me a little insight into the way the book was written.
Good book. Hope discussing it will be as much fun.

I hope I can come in on schedule; got a bad stomach bug and was sick the entire first week of The Sister, so that has put me way behind and unable to post. I am also doing History Club with John Adams and Teapot Dome Scandal - both very interesting.Have talked to several of you - I am a born and bred New Englander - MA, with family tree in ME - and been in NY 20 1/2 years - working in Manhattan and living in Yonkers.Glad to be here: can't wait to get the book. This is my first O'Nan.
Virginia, What is the History Club? Just don't want to miss any good reading! LOL Peggy

It is with books as with men; a very small number play a great part.
