i forgot to post about this fantastic book i recently finished. it took me F.O.R.E.V.E.R. to read, but only because it was so deep. }yes, i said “deep”!}i had to take the time to let everything soak in. this is the story about a girl. just a normal girl growing from teenager to woman, stumbling through life trying to make sense of her feelings and the actions of others. her relationships brought about all sorts of memories from my own high school and young adulthood. it was like visiting old memories with a new light shed on them. we don’t often take the time to reflect on our past in such a clear and peaceful way. of course, growing up is painful and those growing pains surely don’t end after high school! this story helped me realize that growing up is a constant- we grow up until we are gone. learning and struggling to define ourselves is an ongoing process throughout our entire lifetime.
truly, this book is one every single woman should read- i think everyone of us can relate to the struggles and celebrations illustrated in the flawless and poetic writing of hilary thayer hamann!
i think i need to own this book so i can re-visit it on occasion.
