This is not something I‘d normally read but I‘m so HAPPY I did. The characters all had a back story and I liked learning how they became part of the gang. Feminism out of infertility, learning that you are more worth more than the amount of children you can bear. 💪🏼💪🏼💪🏼

Golden Hour | Beatriz Williams

I‘m a huge BW fan. I gobble up 🦃 all of her books. For some reason, I‘ve tried to read and audio this one but I just can‘t get into it. Should I give it another go? At what point does it get good?
Happy Thanksgiving to everyone celebrating alone today, it‘s a tough one.

Amie I'm also a fan of hers, but I didn't like this book as much as her others. 12mo

Great story about mother-daughter dynamics. Also brings in the aspect of children growing up in non-English households and feeling that disconnect between home and their other life that is lived in English. Great read. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I‘m so upset this book is over. The story of Ana and Daniel makes you so reminiscent of teen/YA life. Ana‘s story grips your heart. It‘s really hard for us to imagine a life so dominated by government. You can feel her longing to be free to speak, love, be. My favorite scene was the room service scene, I was just so happy to was able to experience a relationship if only for a few hours.
This is a MUST read ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

So hard to believe that “stealing babies” happened into the 1980s. I‘m glad she incorporated this into the story. So tragic and ruined so many lives. Unfortunately, I‘m sure not all children had the same fate as Christina.

I‘m really enjoying this book while I nurse this little one. She‘s an excellent writer. Not much historical fiction on Franco‘s Spain. It‘s such an interesting topic though.

Families belong together. This book raises the question. What makes a family? I'm very torn. Was Mia wrong to take Pearl from the Ryan's? Who were the better parents for Meredith? Why did Izzy feel like an outsider?
I can't imagine loosing one of my girls the way the mothers in this book lost theirs. I don't know where I stand, I can see both sides. 😪

Did you have to burn down the old to make room for the new? The carpet at her feet was soft. The sofa beneath her was patterned with roses. Outside, a mourning dove cooed from the bird feeder and a Cadillac glided to a dignified stop at the corner. She wondered which was the real world.
