Friday Books: Minnesota Authors
This week's book: Angle of Declination by Doug Mayfield and Sally Mayfield. The story is about a newly married couple and their first year of marriage. They do some moving around, take a couple of jobs in a cavalier, "why not" sort of way, have various adventures and moral dilemmas. As newly married people, they are trying to get used to being together as a couple. There is something of a mystery-like feel to the book, although it is not classified as a mystery. The mystery part is very mild (just enough for me, a person who doesn't read mysteries).
This was a really good book, showing the twists and turns of values and ethics. One can declare this is right and that is wrong, but life throws you curve balls, and the answers are not so clear. This book illustrates those dilemmas perfectly. It's very well written and a good "grabber" - a page turner. Added bonus: the authors are from Minnesota.
I give it 5 stars.
