Titles that draw you in

I read the book Fifty Acres and a Poodle. Well how could you not with a title like that. Jeanne Marie Laskas drew me in with her tale of two Pittsburgh city dwellers, who move to the country. She and her boyfriend become greenhorn farm owners, unsure how rural they even want to be. I really enjoyed her book it was funny, poingant - all that you would expect from that title.

Laskas recently release her follow up biography, Exact Same Moon: Fifty Acres and a Family. It continues their tale of country life and becoming part of the community. It also deals with her mother's illness and Jeanne Marie's baby longings. I inhaled it in one sitting.
