    One thought on “The Radiance of Fossils”

    1. Once again, Pat Carr outdoes herself in her latest novel, “The Significance of Fossils.” Timelessly funny, it’s a coming of age piece about an archeologist/teacher who discovers the lessons of a lifetime. Faced with a failed marriage at sixty, refusing to go gently into that deep abyss called getting old, Dalton Randall is attending a writing workshop to secretly find out what might’ve been or what might come to be with her ex-love from her very distant past who happens to be leading the [...]

    2. Dalton Randall is attending a weekend retreat for want to be writers. Although that is what she says she is there for she really is there to revaluate her love life and personal relationship with her mother.The book is very well written. The aurthor is very articulate with words and descriptions. Where I felt it lacked a little was in the character building. I really felt no attachment to any of the characters. I never felt any emotion for the main characters.

    3. I really enjoyed this book--one reason is because Pat Carr is an excellent writer and creates believable characters. The other reason--I'm a writer. I've been to these kind of writing retreats like are featured in this book. I was laughing and smiling and nodding right along with the main character who is not used to writing retreats and only trying to discover if she is still in love with the author leading the retreat!
