What a read! Margaret Wilkerson Sexton pulled me in and then turned on some lights. The Revisioners weaves a story of multigenerational connection through a century of women navigating an unforgiving and unjust society.

“Practice love, compassion and forgiveness. Anger is nothing but an anchor that keeps you from moving forward.”
Abby Fabiaschi, I Liked My Life

“You don't always get to know what happened, or why things happened a certain way, but it always, always, goes deeper than any one thing.”
Abby Fabiaschi, I Liked My Life

“MADDY’S TRUTHS Make room for who you are by knowing who you’re not. Smile all the time, at everyone, without exception: when you’re happy it will be contagious, and when you’re angry it will drive the person you’re mad at bonkers. Blow-dry before lipstick. Counters before sweeping. Water before dinner. To hell with what everyone thinks about your life, but you should know what you think about it. Don’t stay out past one a.m.—nobody is proud of the stories born later than that. Plans contingent on perfection fail. It’s dangerous to fight who you are. The stupidest thing you can do is believe your own bullshit, but you probably will every once in a while. Flowery perfume smells like a cover-up. Don’t have a room your kids can’t play in or a couch your kids can’t sit on; it’s their house too. If you don’t know what to say, say, “I don’t know what to say.” If you mess up, say, “I messed up.” If you need help, say, “I need help.” Never count on any one thing. Don’t confuse wanting to have sex and rent movies with someone for wanting to marry him. Never buy button-fly jeans—they aren’t flattering on anyone ever.”

“In the argument over whether knowledge is power or ignorance is bliss, it seems I've always come down on the side of ignorance. And when that's the side you fall on, you don't realize it until it's too late.”
