Take A Chance Challenge- Random Word

My random word was "above". The book I read was Above The Thunder by Renee Manfredi. It was the story of four people whose lives become intertwined, resulting in changes for all of them-both good and bad.

I think that what intrigued me right away was that the way in which the characters all meet is through an HIV support group that one of the characters runs. (I used to work in an AIDS facility). I do have to admit I had a hard time getting into the story at first because it seemed like it took awhile for the characters to actually meet. But once they did, I enjoyed the interaction between them and the relationships that they formed. It ended up being one of those books I couldn't put it down and it was one of those books I wanted to keep going, if that makes any sense!

Sounds like the book worked out good for you! And to have a connection with your own past was kind of neat ... might have made the book more meaningful to you.
