Surprise Find

Book Club

I thought my queue at the online public library was empty but then yesterday I got the email telling me The Glass Castle: A Memoir by Jeanette Walls had been added to my Kindle.  Imagine my delight!!!

I am only 25% through but absolutely enjoying this tale of a nomad family with two very eccentric and dysfunctional parents.  I don’t think the intent was to be funny but already I have read some laugh out loud moments that make me want to know this family personally.  The story gives me hope for a brighter tomorrow, touches on the American dream and familial bonds that are as deep as the ocean.  One can’t help but root for these underdogs.

As always, more to come.
