Lisa shared a quote
motherhood explained
Lilli de Jong by Janet Benton
“And how those cries affect me! Until now, no matter how much I’ve cared for a person, with the exception of Mother in her dying hours, and despite how dreadful this sounds, I’ve found it easier to bear their suffering than my own. Not so with Charlotte. My shoulders, back, arms, and neck ache from holding her; my nipples are scabbed and sometimes bleeding; yet the most worn-out, painful part of me is my heart. It stretches so wide when she’s contented that I believe its fibers are tearing. When she suffers, it shrinks and throbs and hardens into a knot. Never before have I even thought of my heart as the muscle it is. Never has mine seemed to expand and contract in concert with my feelings. It hurts continually now from responding to the inconstant creature that is Charlotte.”

Epic love story. Great read. This tries to explain that a woman has to leave a little of her own self behind to be a wife and mother. Worth it in the end but hard to give up your individual feminine self.

Great mystery novel and unexpected turns. Being an outsider is never easy and harder still when you have to try to prove your innocence and no one wants to hear.
