Am finding the book emotionally draining. I really liking it, but it just takes so much out of me when I read it. The novel is based on actual events that happened with Sri Lankan refugees the summer of 2009 that came to BC. Just so much relevance to what is happening at the southern border in the US. Wish this f—-ing nightmare would end. #bookclubread

I really enjoyed this one. It had a very Kate Morton vibe. It‘s a sad story of two evacuee sisters during the Blitz of World War II, who make small choices with devastating consequences.

“There are no secrets to a charmed life. There is just the simple truth that you must forgive yourself for only being able to make your own choices, and no one else‘s.”

Took myself out to lunch last week and this was my reading companion. This is our current #bookclubread, but I'm also listening to "the life-changing magic of not giving a f*ck". This last one has gotten a little repetitive for me and I don't necessarily agree with the majority of her sentiments, but it's definitely been helpful in questioning some of my habits and putting things in perspective.

Well, that was great. An accessible, brief history of feminism in #graphicnovel format. I would love to see this read by all young people, especially young women, so they have an understanding of what has been overcome in order for us to have the rights we (in the west anyway) take for granted today. 👊👊👏🙌❤️

I feel as though this book is a “must-read” simply for its thought-provoking nature. The style of writing itself is extremely difficult to read (for the first time in my life I switched to an audio book which was far more enjoyable!), however whenever I put it down again I had something new to mull over and reflect on. Gorgeous cover 😍 and genius writing, but not an easy read by any means.
