I like reading historical fiction because not only do you get a good story out of the book, but you learn something, too. Blue was just this kind of book. But I still wish it wasn’t sad! I have read too many sad books this year! This is the story of Ann Fay Honeycutt and her experience during the polio epidemic of 1944 and how she was treated at the Lake Hickory Camp Hospital. But, more than just a historical recounting this was a story of how expected friendship can be powerfully healing, we all need friends like Imogene. I wonder what color my bottle would be.
