2.24 Daughter of Fortune by Isabel Allende

I read this one before I left on vacation so my memory of it is a bit fuzzy, but I do remember being disappointed. It's a thick book and by the time I was half way through it and realized that I had no interest whatsoever in the plot or characters, it was too late to turn back. Very rarely is a book so bad I cannot finish it. It's an illness. Seriously.

From what I can recall, a wealthy girl falls in love with a poor guy, he leaves for the Gold Rush, she follows him and spends the next 10 years looking for him. He may or may not be a notorious outlaw or he may be dead. Tres exciting, no?
