THE BOOK STOP
I've just finished reading an old book I had shelved at the house.
I found the it to be interesting, but the jumping around
in the time-frame of everyone's lives during the story made
it a chaotic read. But, the storyline was one that made
you think about several points in life and about
family relationships. It's kept my mind busy on nights with insomnia.
Drowning Ruth seemed to be an easy read, but
the shifting time-frame could get a little wearisome.
The storyline moved along and I first thought it
was going to be about a family with mental
illness, and I think it ended with the main idea being more
about the lengths that family and people will go to so they
can hold the family and the farm together. It's also about
learning to appreciate what you have in life. It is fascinating to
consider whether the relationships in the book are present because of
love, obligation, duty, secrets, guilt or as a blessing.
If you've read this book or will read this book, shoot me a comment on what you think
about it as well. I read a broad expanse of books, no set genre.
I'd like to know what your thoughts are, good and bad, about this book.
