This isn't the first book I've read by Mr. Bishop. Recently I read "Night of the Comet" and fell in love with his style of writing and his ability to tell a realistic/poignant tale! He truly has the gift of story-telling. What's interesting to me is that even though he is a man, he's able to write this very believably from a woman's perspective. I truly admire this author!
In this story, the mother is writing a letter to her daughter, explaining what it was like for her growing up when she was the same age. I remember foolishly believing my parents couldn't possibly understand what it was like for me to grow up. Now that I have children in their late teens, I often reflect on MY past and how my life played out. The struggle to find out who we are and getting to that place is a universal one!
Though I would've liked to have had some of the blanks in the story explained further, I really have no complaints that those questions weren't addressed...
This story was so well-written that I swallowed it up in two sittings. I loved how Bishop expressed so well what was going on in Laura's mind and heart. The suspense ran through the whole story, but the story was good enough and expressive enough of a young woman's thoughts, and an older one's too, that I would have read it anyway.
I lovef this book. Beautifully written story of growing up. Bringing back memories of my era and smiles. And the very touching ending causing tears. Well written Mr. Bishop!
