Before I get started, there is a cool contest out there for all you query-weary folk. Go to the Creepy Query Girl's blog and check it out. Only one day left!

I am so lucky. I saw A Change in Altitude by Anita Shreve in the rental house down in Kiawah along with twenty others lying in a basket. Somehow I resisted the urge to steal half a dozen novels, but when I saw this in paperback at Target, I grabbed it.

Fantastic. It has adventure—deadly mishap on a treacherous ascent of Mt. Kenya. It has drama—a young couple’s marriage teeters on the brink of destruction. It has incredible writing—the plot moves, you feel like your inside the mc’s head and it is authentic with a capital A. Plus you get to learn a little about life and culture around Nairobi.

The best part, for me, is that Shreve has 14 other books. 14! I plan to wallow in each and every one. Lucky day.
