Postscript: Monday afternoon. Went to the library to pick up the only book available of all that I put on hold. Started reading it, ["In This Grave Hour" by Jacqueline Winspear] and thought this is too familiar. Went back to my book list and found it last year. I can't read it again because I know how it comes out. That jumped out at me right away.
Thanks for the suggestions. Cynthia's suggestion has a long waiting list. I'm #95! Kitty's suggestion is available but hadn't arrived from the branch where there was a copy available when I went to my branch this afternoon.
I'm going to read a magazine and drink my tea out on the balcony in the sun.
