    Wow! That's random. I wasn't even looking for this particular book. I had asked for help locating Three Cups of Tea(library computer was down) and my librarian friend Kathy knew where it was on the shelf..as she looked for it, she spotted Stolen Lives. She knew of my international reading over the last three years, so she wondered if I'd be interested in it too. I believe the world just shrunk two dress sizes:lol:
