Call for Birthday Cards!

Misty over at Confessions of a Pen Thief had a great idea that I'm stealing. She posted a request on a forum for birthday cards to mail to her pen pal soldier.

"My" soldier, Gordon, turns 27 on July 10th. (Yes, you know where this is heading.) If you want to send a birthday card for me to put in a box to Gordon, please drop me a line at to get my mailing address. I'm planning to put a birthday package in the mail to him no later than June 1.

Wouldn't that be great to have stacks of cards for him to open??

I'll keep you posted as I start receiving cards for him. . . .

Did you have a favorite character, or one that spoke to you the most? Who and why?
The father with the burned hands is the one who stayed with me the most after reading the book.

Did you notice that the day on which the events unfold is actually the same day that Diana, Princess of Wales, died? Does knowing that make any difference in how you see the story? I wouldn't have made the connection if I hadn't just watched some of the coverage of the Royal Wedding. To quote the author, he chose this particular day because his novel is about how ". . .everyday miracles of life and death go unwitnessed in favor of celebrity and sensati…
