I loved that the author was completely honest from the very start. I loved the parallel to her life and that she was fearless. She was not afraid to take the chance and help this boy. I love that she is still a very important part of his life almost 30 years later.
I think it was when she met the boys grandmother.
When the boy saw his father when he was dying.
Wonderful story a must read / listen!
The letter written to Lori by Maurice at the end of the book
I wouldn't listen again. I felt the book as a bit longer than it needed to be. The story is a good one & I was definitely engaged though.
I liked that since it's a true story, the ending didn't go as I would have predicted. This is a real story & that made it all the more enjoyable. Everything isn't always roses & things don't always end up like in the movies.
I found the story to be a lovely one but the writing is awkward at times. I felt that the narrator's voice did not match up well with the story being told.
this book compares the lives of two strangers who were meant to connect. once the adult was fully entrenched in the child's life, i was sad to learn of some of the adult's choices that were bound to have an effect on the child.
two very memorable images:
1) brown paper bags
2) large dining room table
you will have to read the book to find out...
Yes, it touches the heart.
Morice, because of the challenges he had to overcome and the deep good character within him.
She brings a women's voice that brings more feeling for the characters.
I wish we all could understand the challenges of the intercity and the good that is within all of us if we could just take the time to see.
