snuggle with a book
i have always been a book lover, in fact i own my very own small library. i have over 10 boxes of my favorite books and thats just the favorites! after thinking it over i though i would like to share some of my top picks, one every week. this weeks pick is Clan of the Cave Bear by Jean Auel. after young ayla loses her mother at a very young age she is adopted by a medicine women of the "clan" (cavemen) eza finds ayla very close to death, after nursing her back to health eza hopes to keep the girl as her own. however being one of what the clan calls "others" ayla is not welcome in the clan. ayla must over come physical and mental trials to prove herself to the clan and herself. this is one of my favorites because of the feelings it gives off. this book is just the first book of 5 in aylas dangerous adventures in finding where she belongs and who she is. each book is just as great as the last leaving the reader wanting more, with believable characters and historical bases its very easy to get in to. i am positive anyone who reads this book will fall in love with it and the people in it! (except for broud, no one likes him) ENJOY!
