Every Last One - Anna Quindlen

A story told by the mother of a family whose every day life is shattered by unpredicted violence.

For my first post this is a powerful read. A typical family, Mom, Dad, big sister and twin brothers and their every day life unfolds quietly through half of the book then something happens to change everything.

The mother's reactions, thoughts and experiences are painful to read and deeply felt.

Quote:I could ask her, I suppose, but what difference would it make? Whatever she did was fine. That's what I've learned. It's fine. Whatever you manage to do.

Book tracking

For years I've been keeping track of the books I read on 3x5 cards. I thought it's about time I migrate to a new technology and post my reads and reviews here.
