"The Memory Keeper's Daughter"
by Kim Edwards.
This book has been sitting by my chair for longer then I can remember.
Once I began to read can hardly put it down
and it was finished last night.
Very unusual that I have not been able to settle myself and sit still
Thanksgiving, Christmas and being on strong medication that is now
reduced to a minimum (and I do not want this but will go slowly)
probably the reason.
As I sort through hundreds of old pictures there are words in this book that are a reminder of me.
They brought tears to my eyes.....
~~~"what does it mean that the photos do not fit at all with the woman she remembers being?"
then another passage
"wanting to take the young woman she had been by the arm and shake her gently
~~~Keep going she wanted to tell her, Don't give up. Your life will be fine in the end"~~~.
this is so true
But life is so different then I imagined it would be
at that time.
All is well
but just so very different....
