People of the Book - Geraldine Brooks

I just realized I haven't had much to say that's very positive lately about the books I've been reading, so I'm just noting here that I'm really enjoying this book, and I am all admiration for the audio narrator Edwina Wren, who has told the story so far with warmth and feeling, incorporating about a half-dozen different nationalities/accents. I have no idea if she's getting them all right, but it sounds good to me.
