N - Novel
Escapist? I suppose so. But a good story can be instructive and can touch parts that are deeply hidden and close to the heart. The novels that have affected me this way are often simple stories with a strong sense of place.
Of course I'm now trying to remember some novels that affected me that way. Barbara Kingsolver's Animal Dreams was one; Snow Falling on Cedars by David Guterson was another. There are others (many others actually) but while I remember the feeling of being totally absorbed and some details of the story I can't remember the titles.
What novels have touched you deeply?
