I don’t even know where or how I heard of this book…
but I am sooooo glad that I did.
I loved this book.
The intricate threads tying each person together
in ways I didn’t expect,
the reasoning behind the reasons…
But Kate & Peter’s story…well….
the creeping realization, the gradual descent into…
the delayed reactions and then the subsequent
futile motions of trying to figure out where it all
went wrong, of how to fix it, to apply rational logic
to something that defies logic & is completely
out of your control…
That made me cry.
Because I saw myself in that.
I saw me.
As clear and as sharp as looking in a mirror.
I saw me.
So my opinion on this book may be a little biased
because of that….I suspect you are either drawn to
or run away screaming from
what you recognize in yourself….depending on the day.
On this day, it felt good to be understood,
if only by a fictional character in a book with a name
I can never seem to remember.
Also, I wrote this note after reading it:
“The only secret to love is to be kind” found in the acknowledgements.
