The Shuttle - Frances Hodgson Burnett

As Betty's father is pondering the possibility of a bright and sensible young woman falling in love with a cruel or unprincipled man:

I've been enjoying this book, but am glad I'm getting close to the end. It's been a long, slow read, because baseball season has been cutting into my reading time, but this is engaging enough to keep me reading at least a little bit every day. And I'm looking forward to my next BL-opoly roll and picking my next book!
