Q. Talk about the book that most changed or influenced your life. Was it a book that turned you from an average to avid reader, did it help you deal with a particularly difficult situation, does it bring you comfort every time you read it?

My immediate response was, This is too difficult. Then I paused, reflected, and realized there is really only one way to answer this question:  Jane Eyre.

Years ago, a very special person and I found in each other a kindred spirit.  This friend sent me a copy of Jane Eyre as a gift. We decided we would read and discuss the novel together.  Little did we know, dear reader, that in sharing this beautiful book we would fall in love.

Reader, I married him.
