Yesterday 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?
