it was amazing

Love,love, loved this book. How have I not read Louise Erdrich before? Wow, her writing is beautiful, magical. I found myself reading and rereading passages, then highlighting phrases, paragraphs. This book was a memoir about the early parenting of her 3 daughters (also adopted 3 older american indian boys), but it also touches wildlife and gardening. While I was reading this book, I did a little research online about the author and her real life story is full of drama and sadness. I learned so much from this book, will carry some of the messages with me forever. Also so much validation as a mom, a woman. She writes with such realness, but it's poetry as well. I will be running out to buy more of her books right now and will savor each one. This book has definitely moved into one of my all time favorites and this author as well.
