Wendy Petera

What is your favorite book/author and why?
Growing up I loved Black Beauty.   After college, I became obsessed with all the classics and really enjoyed the Bronte novels along with the Grapes of Wrath (Steinbeck) and to Kill a Mockingbird (Lee).   Now, I confess to reading Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series. I reread the series every time a new book comes out and I read the whole series on my Kindle while traveling in New Zealand for a month!
