The best book.

Well maybe, probably not the best book ever, but I am still on the high I got from reading it.
I thought I read all of Ursula Hegi's books, but when I found this one at Borders for $3.99, I once again reminded myself that amazon.com is good, but a real touch, feel ,flip, scan, smell bookstore cannot be beat. Their displays and bargains and the browsing...
Anyway, this book is so...
First of all, if you are an artist (and aren't we all) one of the main charactors is a collage artist and you can actually feel her pain and pride and wonder and process of art. Yum!
Next, the characters in the book are so heart-breakingly REAL. they have such sadness, trauma
and optimism in their spirits that they become your family. (better than your family, actually because you don't have to clean their dishes)
Nextly and Lastly, Ursula writes like she was born to do it. She is not awkward or flowery or unrefined. Her writing flows naturally and flawlessly. It really was better than anything else I thought I should have been doing!
And since Bea mentioned a giftie in my comments...
I think I'm feelin it.
Check tomorrow for the whole scoop!
Love to everyone in the whole- wide- world,
