Both these stories were written with travel in mind.
SECOND NATURE. This is rather a long-winded tale of a magazine reporter trying to get into the mind of a odd best selling novelist while on a camping expedition. Sluggish, heavy, but I did have to finish it.
ONE SUMMER. A romance that could have been a pleasant cheerful travelogue that rambles all over parts of the U.S. capturing events and characters with a camera. Well written and thoroughly enjoyable.
