My current read is not a new book although it’s new to me. Someone Not Really Her Mother by Harriet Scott Chessman was first published in 2005 and was a Good Morning America “Read This” and was selected by the San Francisco Chronicle as one of the best books of the year. It is easy to see why.
So Teaser Tuesdays says I’m to pick two sentences from any page and share them with you as a teaser. Here are mine:
Her [mother’s] uncharted outing last February took her to the drugstore. It was then that Mir had to acknowledge her mom was beginning to — not to vanish exactly, but to become someone not really her mother.
This is a tender story that will touch everyone who reads it because if we haven’t experienced a loved one slowly being lost to us, we may face it eventually, or we may become that lost person; it explores the tenuous links we have to those we love. I’ll be writing a review shortly.
