A Great Read

I am just finishing up a book that has been a great read. It's entitled, "A Year on Ladybug Farm" by Donna Ball. The premise is that three ladies (of a certain age) agree to buy a rundown mansion in Virginia and rehabilitate it. It's all about their adventures that first year. It is a great, fast book and completely enjoyable. I love books about homes and this one gives great descriptions of the interior of Ladybug Farm. Only two criticisms. One is that I don't think the characters are really ever developed fully. You just don't feel as if you really "know" them. Secondly, there are too many bit characters introduced that you just never hear about again. Too many loose ends...that's my criticism. Other than's fabulous.
