Ordinary grace

A review of Catherine Abbey Hodges

The reversals in this book aren’t easy. There is nothing sentimental or giddy about them. They are real. They are ordinary.


Bright Star

Bright Star is a die-hard romantic’s romance, eschewing tawdriness in favor of shy smiles, stolen glances and soft kisses. It helps, of course, that half of its pas de deux is John Keats (Ben Whishaw), the frail Romantic poet who died of tuberculosis in 1821 at age 25.
