This Quiet Lady is a picture book that cleverly conveys “The Beginning” at the end as the child in the story views pictures of her mother from her mom’s childhood to the birth of herself. The pictures allow a reader to experience the past and present simultaneously on opposite pages. The use of sepia colors gives the book a genuine feel for the power of photographs as they vividly come to life in the colorful portraits on the adjacent page. School-age readers ages 5 – 9 will find the most interest in this story.
