it was amazing
Read in May, 2008

You have to read this. Yesterday, in Central Park, I finished reading it in one sitting, pausing now and then, to look up, to see how the world had changed. "Unsparing" was the first word that came to mind. Then, "religious." Not "spiritual" which sounds so wishy-washy to my ears, but "religious." The final, but not the last, word was "love."

The Quarterback is thinking of buying all three of her books for his mother. They would make a beautiful present for Mother's Day.
