it was amazing
Read in July, 2009

The Moonflower Vine, by Jetta Carlson, originally published in 1962, is an old favorite my sister and I discovered years ago. I liked it so much, I bought my own hardcopy (the original being my sister's), as well as a beat up paperback to carry in my beach bag. It is the story of four sisters and their parents, and how life bends and shapes them through the years. I originally thought of my grandmother and my mother's aunts the first time I read the book, that this is what it must have been like growing up in the early 1900's - 1920's. But as I grow older myself, I realize that although the world has changed drastically since those times, people -- with their wants, needs, and desires, have not changed at all.
