August book review

My August book review is a little late. With Tuesday being my only day off (besides Sunday when you can get nothing done) and I have been trying to get a truck bought and get our car sold, I have been my usual busy self. But I think the wait is worth the book that I will tell you about.

The book was mentioned over at

and it sounded like something I would enjoy. I ordered thru PaperBackSwap that I had told you about some months back. "Enough already just tell about the book."

Border Music, by Robert James Waller ( author of Bridges of Madison County).
The book tells of Cowboy Jack Carmine ( an aging Vietnam vet with flash backs) and a slightly younger Linda Lobo ( but aging adult club dancer) heading to his rundown ranch in Alpine, Texas. A second parallel story is being told about Jack's disillusioned uncle Vaughn Rhomer, a produce manager in a Iowa supermarket.
The love (or lust) story is both familiar and unpredictable at the same time. I enjoyed the book and I hope you will too.
I continue to look for books that night interest me. If you have one just throw the title my way, thanks.

I've been wondering if you had finished it yet; I'm glad you liked it as much as I did.
