The Secret Chord by Geraldine Brooks (2015)

I've tried to read the last two Geraldine Brooks novels - Caleb's Crossing (2011) and this year's The Secret Chord (I was given an advanced reader's copy) and I just couldn't get into either of them.  I loved March (2004) and Year of Wonders (2001) and apparently enjoyed People of the Book (2008) at least according to my Goodreads account (this was before I kept this blog).  But the last two have just left me feeling flat. I couldn't finish either of them; I think I barely got two chapters into either.  (don't hassle me:  there are TOO MANY good books out there waiting to be read to waste my time on something I can't get into or don't enjoy).  Perhaps my tastes have changed.
