OK…Today’s recommendation is Santa Olivia by Jacqueline Carey. This is the story of a special young woman who lives in a town in what used to be Texas following a virus of epidemic proportions. It is a story of love and humanity and it is very well written and engaging. I’ve loved Cary since I read Kushiel’s Dart and this is the first of her books I’ve read outside of that series. While it’s technically Sci-Fi, that’s only because of the back story. The actual story could take place anywhere.
