The hardest thing that anyone has to bear is the loss of someone close to them. My father has died. At the moment we are trying to get flights back to the United States, but it is difficult at such short notice, and some of the companies are hit by strikes in Europe which ground everything moving out in any direction. Somehow we will make it there.
I will post personally again when I return, but a few book reviews I have already programmed for publication will appear in the meantime, even though I am not here.
Love & Kisses, Viki.
