"The Patron Saint of Liars"
Patron is set in the U.S. in the 1950's with unwanted pregnancies the main subject. I cared for a couple of the characters, but not the main character, which, maybe, we're not meant to. Cold. fish.
As with the other Patchett books, this is a submersion in a completely different time and place. Unlike her other books, she actually names the place and time. State of Wonder still may be my favorite, just because it was my first.
my source: Cousin Betsy. Betsy knows books.
my verdict: Well worth a read
