Burmese Lessons: A Love Story

I recently spoke with Marge Bruineman, Burmese Lesson's champion, and she indicated to me that she really enjoyed this book. She also hinted that there's definitely a romantic element to it. Burmese Lessons is the longest book on the the list of Evergreen Award nominees. Up until talking with Marge, I wasn't sure if I would be able to get through it before the big event on September 24th. Now that I know it's a super read, I'm going to have to make the time to read it. I hope Marge will weigh in here with more specific comments about Karen Connelly's book.
