For the next few months I'll be posting book reviews to Long Hill Reads, a blog created for the Long Hill Library's Adult Winter Reading Program. Feel free to visit me there!

Enjoyable tales of the interesting life of a large-animal veterinarian, but I didn't find this second memoir as wonderful and compelling as Brown's first book, "While You're Here, Doc." That one seemed much meatier and more interesting. I highly recommend While You're Here, Doc.
A very well-written, interesting look at one man's internal struggle against the constraints of "polite society" in 1870s New York City, where he can never have the woman whom he loves. This book won the Pulitzer Prize in 1921. Thanks to Trisha for recommending it to me.
