new life under the flickering neon of the STARDUST ever come true? Georgia
I’ve read a couple of Ms. Stewart’s books and they are all different. STARDUST starts out with the almost mandatory death (in historicals) of
’s unfaithful husband.
STARDUST is impeccably written, I couldn’t find any fault there (not that I was
looking) but I never did completely connect with the characters. Georgia
The story is slow moving, easy to put down, but that’s okay. Sometimes it’s good to read a slow book instead of one that you race through and are left wanting more. STARDUST leaves you contemplating what you read, thinking about it long after you close the pages of the book. Discussion questions are included at the end of the book. $13.99. 320 pages.
