Lyhyt elämäkerta
Patricia Gaffney was born on December 17, 1944 in Tampa, Florida, and grew up in Bethesda, Maryland, a suburb of Washington, D.C. She earned a bachelor's degree in English and philosophy from Marymount College in Tarrytown, New York, and also studied literature at Royal Holloway College of the University of London, at George Washington University, and at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. After college, Gaffney taught 12th grade English for a year before becoming a freelance court reporter, a job shepursued in North Carolina, Pittsburgh, and Washington, D.C., for the next fifteen years.

Her first book, a historical romance, was published by Dorchester in 1989. Between then and 1997, she wrote 11 more romance novels (Dorchester; PenguinUSA), for which she was nominated for or won many awards.

In 1999, she went in a new direction with her hardcover fiction debut, The Saving Graces (HarperCollins). A contemporary story about four women friends, the novel explored issues of love, friendship, trust, and commitment among women. The Saving Graces enjoyed bestseller status on theNew York Times, Publishers Weekly, USA Today, and other lists. Circle of Three (2000), Flight Lessons (2002), and The Goodbye Summer (2004) followed,all national bestsellers.

Patricia Gaffney lives in southern Pennsylvania with her husband.



Not even remotely close to Gaffney's best work. I wasn't particularly invested in either of the MC's but I kept going because the premise of the book was fun. Unfortunately, the action picked up right at the time the (horribly, horribly racist portrayal of the) villain was introduced. Good grief, what a train wreck.

I just don't have words. This left me feeling conflicted and a little guilty while being a really incredible story at the same time.

This turned out pretty good. I liked the plot although I had wondered earlier where the story was going after they discovered he wasn't really feral but could talk and read etc. A nice little book not deep but well written. Enough that I could give this author another try. She might never be a favorite but not one I never want to see again. The historical aspect seemed well done and there were no blatant anachronisms.
