The first book I read by Anita Shreve did not turn out to be The Pilot’s Wife, although at the time, this was the one that everyone was reading. I was on a long-haul and happened upon the book, Light on Snow. It was such a beautifully-written book that I became a fan. Just two nights ago I finished reading The Weight of Water, for the second time. What an exceptional story, an historical fiction. I’ve decided that I am entralled with books that are rooted in history! I’ve not seen the 2002 movie based on the same story, but am including the trailer here.
