I am doing something new here, at Words Like Honey. My goal is too read more than I have been. I don’t know if I got book burn out from my last job, of working in a library. I would often check out stacks of books to one person and my desire to read seemed to dwindle. That was a long time ago, so enough of excuses. I am happy to say, that I completed this book by Rachel Simon. It was a random used book that I came across, at our local Senior center.
This book is a memoir. It kept my interest and it tugged at my heart strings and I was not surprised at the emotion I felt when I finished it. It’s not my goal to critque, just to share what I have read. I will hint that Rachel commits to a year long, of riding buses, that her sister rides daily. Beth knows the routes and the names of all the bus drivers. Rachel learns a lot about her sister’s life and learns a lot about herself. The individuals in this were everyday people, which entails some messy live’s and imperfect people, as we all are.
