The Hour I First Believed by Wally Lamb
I enjoyed The Hour I First Believed by Wally Lamb. 4 out of 5 stars and my first read for 2009. I'm a fan of Wally Lamb and this book did not disappoint. A heavy but gripping story that tackles recent (and not so recent) events in our history but includes a fictional storyline. It's a story within a story within a story. From The Civil War, Abolitionism and Women's Rights to Columbine, Hurricane Katrina and the War on Iraq you will follow the main characters personal family history. All of my emotions came to the surface during this read.
