One thought on “Under The Same Stars (2012)

  1. Hello M. Lott,
    I loved that book. Some scenes will stay with me for a long time. Most of all, I enjoyed the clash between British and American attitudes, cultures, and of course languages. It’s a book I intend to read again. I attended your workshop in Geneva (saturday) and thoroughly enjoyed it. You’re a no-nonsense person (and writer) and it was a pleasure to hear you talk about your art.
    I thought you might like to know that the word “encanto” in Spanish means “charmed”, “pleased”. The word for “enchanted” is “encantado”. Just thought I should tell you. Take care and keep on writing! Thanks
