Some people find it easy to leave the past behind. Others cling to the parts of it that hold precious memories or give them comfort. Both types of folks exist in this beautiful story of loss, grief, and finding oneself among that which remains.
When love, trust, and Della’s understanding of her own family are called into question, the reader is reminded just how rare personal integrity can be, and just how profoundly it speaks for itself to others who value it. The reader finds themselves silently cheering for Della every time she resists the type of mediocrity to which she seems to have been relegated since she was a child, and rejoicing with her when she overcomes her challenges and does something truly extraordinary.
This is a book that delivers the full gamut of emotions through the course of Della’s story. It’s a well-written and very satisfying read.
