I know this will probably sound like heresy, but I haven't actually read a Connie Willis novel. One of my best friends Cait wilfulcait passed away last year after a 2 year battle with an aggressive form of breast cancer and she was a *huge* fan of this author. She kept meaning to lend me a book to start with, but with one thing and another, it just never happened. And her hubby packed up all the books of hers he didn't want all pell-mell and I can't find her copies.
After she passed last year, I couldn't bear to look them up, but now I think I can.
So, is there a book of hers I should start with? Recommendations and why you like them (without giving away the plot please) would be very appreciated.
