really liked it
Read from January 22 to February 03, 2010

To be completely honest, I didn't want to like this book. The main character, Mira, was a stranger to me at the beginning -- someone whose motives I couldn't relate to in the least.

It wasn't until I was 3/4 of the way through that I realized I was thoroughly sucked in to Mira's story, and her heart-wrenching decision to leave her family, then revisit her past and unravel just what it was that she wanted from her life.

In the end, my personal realization was that what she is striving for--a true and meaningful connection with her family, her partners, her world--is something essential to us all. With that thought, I cried with Mira and applauded her for moving through the really tough process of stepping out of herself in order to regain her true being.
