Currently reading / currently loving

Commuting to university takes a while, yet it allows me "guilt-free" (well, perhaps partially) leisure reading. Schoemperlen's Our Lady of the Lost and Found was profoundly moving on so many levels. I can't recommend this book enough.

"On a Monday morning in April, a middle-aged writer goes into her living room to water the plants and finds a woman standing in front of the fig tree. The woman is wearing a navy blue trench coat and white Nikes and carries a small black suitcase on wheels. She is the Virgin Mary. Invited to stay for lunch, Mary explains that, after 2,000 years of petition, adoration, and travelling, she is tired and needs some R&R"
