The Middle Place
The Middle Place | Kelly Corrigan
9 posts | 15 read | 2 to read
For Kelly Corrigan, family was everything. At thirty-six, she had a marriage that worked, two funny, active kids, and a weekly newspaper column. Yet even as a thriving adult, Kelly still saw herself as the daughter of garrulous charmer George Corrigan. She was living deep within what she calls the Middle Place - 'that sliver of time when parenthood and childhood overlap' - comfortably wedged between her adult duties and her parents' care. But Kelly is abruptly shoved into coming-of-age when she finds a lump in her breast - and gets the diagnosis no one wants to hear. When George, too, learns that he has late-stage cancer, it is Kelly's turn to take care of the man who had always taken care of her - and to show us a woman who finally takes the leap and grows up.

Re-read my 1st Kelly Corrigan. Not as good as her more recent works, but it‘s where I fell in love with Kelly and her family 💖

I don't do this very often but I did not like this book one bit. This book is a memoir of a breast cancer survivor and while I feel empathy for what she went through, I do not like her. I am a pretty easy going person who sees the good in everyone but I found it hard with this book. I apologize if how I feel about this book sounds mean or unsympathetic as I don't mean it to be. 😞

Donna_sBookMinute I, personally, don't think an apology is necessary. You're entitled to share your thoughts about a book. I've bailed on a book for pretty much the same reason. Not everybody wants to be entertained this way. Hope your next read is a good one. 3y
krismlars No need to apologize! 3y

My year in review, although I am pretty sure the Alex Cross book was longer than 101 pages. 🤔

Thanks to my friends on Litsy, this has been my best reading year ever! I can't wait to see what awesome books 2017 will bring. 😎📚

Bostonmomx2 You always have to check the edition you're shelving on Goodreads, sometimes it's wildly off (like this one lol) 3y
Theresa Congratulations!! 3y
Cinfhen Congrats 🎉💕📚 3y
brilliantglow My shortest books was a Manga that goodreads has on file as being 1 page long. 🤔 it's actually close to 200 pages 3y
