Based on the painting, after 30, a woman lives to wear hats that challenge the balance of dark power in that universe. That hat is something else.

Is there going to be a group read for the aforementioned novel, because the last group read was excellent and I really want to read this book. However, without a group read making sure I meet a certain quota of pages, I fear that it will never happen. :(
