Memory Keeper's Daughter
The Memory Keeper's Daughter Click to see synopsis. I absolutely loved, loved, loved this book. It was absolutely just a joy to read. I can not go into any great detail because I will just give to much away. You can get the gist from the synopsis. It can be hard to get past the beginning because it is quite sad and will make you wonder how anybody could do such a thing. I, still, however had no ill will towards the main character. This book just shows that if you think that a big life altering secret that you keep will not affect everyone around you, you are mistaken. It shows how just one decision can alter the path of everyone around you. We must be careful and think of every consequence in every choice we make. Even when we think nobody will find out, we must remeber we are not in control even when we think we are. God is...and what needs to be made known will be made known, no matter how hard we try to keep things hidden.
So it has been awhile since I have blogged. so sorry...busy, busy, busy. Not much new, except the flashbacks I am having to 2004 around this time. First, we have Faye...not much here in this area but go 30-40 miles to the next city and they are flooded. Then Gustav, who headed our way but then turned to New Orleans. Now, we wait for Hanna, who was supposed to be very close to us here but then stayed out in the ocean and is heading North as we speak. Now we are bracing for Ike. I am sending out the vibes to do the same thing as Hanna or just turn around now back the direction it came from. Then we need to wonder what Josephine will do. Every storm keeps us holding our breath wondering which way. After 2004. we no longer even have a thought of it being impossible for Daytona to have a direct hit of a hurricane. I just am taking it day by day because there is no point in worrying. I have no control over it anyway. By the way peak of hurricane season does not start until Sept 10th. It is only the fifth. blech!!!
Must go now...new book to read and updates of hurricanes to keep up on.
