4 1/2 Stars! Honesty, I do not know where to begin with this novel. It was great in its bravery, for sure. It was honest is it's truths. It was scary in it's humanity, yet cuddly in the same manner. Holy cow, I dont know what to say about Precious and Fragile Things. It hit home in a way no other novel has...and it freaks me out!
I'm a Mom, and yes, I need a break! But just what would I do for a said needed break??? Who knows? But presented with a situation like Gilly was?? What would I do, I dunno? And after all is said and done, would the reality remain the same? Who knows? And today, I am thankful I don't know. And I cross my fingers to never find out.
This novel is one, a gripping story of one person trying to be "good" and another trying to hang on to the life she knows and the children she loves while caring for the tortured man who has kidnapped her. Its a hard story to listen to, yet I could not stop listening to it. It compelled me in ways I am afraid to admit.
That all said, wow. Just that wow. Perhaps in a few days I will come back and edit this review after all that happened sinks in.
