it was amazing

As I mentioned in my review of “The Middle Place”, Kelly Corrigan really “gets it”!
Although “Lift” has a slightly different focus—this one is a love letter to her daughters while while “The Middle Place” was an homage to her parents—it is still about her love of family. I cried through three boxes of Kleenex reading “The Middle Place” (Kelly’s first book) and “Lift” back-to-back. This was not because Kelly’s writing style was melodramatic—it was the exact opposite. She is straight to the point—yet her worlds hit straight to the heart. Her writing reminds us of what family does for us—and how they are the center of our universe—with sharp humor as well as her trademark poignant moments. She’s a thoughtful and skilled writer—and she makes me want to call my late parents—and read her next book. Brava!
