Teaser Tuesday: Looking For Me

Looking for MeYesterday I began Beth Hoffman’s Looking For Me. I have not read much of the book yet, but so far I am enjoying the descriptions of the characters, and the way in which the author draws me in. The following words I am sure is true of many daughters:

“For most of my life, I had hoped that my mother would see me. That one day she would open her eyes and, as if a rush of sunlight had poured into a darkened room, she’d see who I was, not the shadow of what I wasn’t. But if I were to be honest, I suspect she wished I’d do the same for her. So here we were, mother and daughter, sitting on opposite sides of the porch while holding tight to our opposite truths.” (p.7)

I have not reached the crux of the story but I am looking forward to reading more of Teddi, especially when signs emerge that her brother, Josh, is still alive.

What are you reading this week?

    1. I agree, and it is only one of the vivid descriptions I have read so far. I have a sense that the author has a good understanding of the dynamics within human relationships.

  1. Those words are true indeed Colline. I wonder why it is like that with some mothers and daughters. I know it was like that with me and my mother. Great review and post hon. 😀 *hugs*

    1. I am wondering if it is because of different viewpoints, or even different dreams. As I am reading this book, I see that it is the case between the main character and her mother.

      1. Or it could be a case of marrying too young and then the disillusions and realising the dreams could never come true and then taking it out on her children…
