Battle of the Books - The Age of Hope

Today's novel is "The Age of Hope" by David Bergen. It's about a woman's journey to discover her own identity. The team behind the book may be small in numbers...but certainly not short on enthusiasm. The CBC's own Sarah Keaveny-Vos will be championing "The Age of Hope".
