The WDW Merchandise Walking Bible
- Jun 27, 2005
Had some uninterrupted reading time yesterday waiting for my DD15.
Two things occurred to me as I sat there reading - first while I don't know how accurate the portrayl of these women are - this is the first time I have heard the story of civil rights from this perspective. The painful position these womean are in, raising, caring and loving children who grow up to treat them so disrespectully.
The second thing that struck me was how strong these women are, to agree to put their lives in jeopardy to give voice to their experience.
If I find some more uninterrupted time this week, I hope I can finish the book. I hate putting it down.
Thanks Nikki for organizing this, I have not been able to read for several months and I am so enjoying reading again.
I found myself having these exact same feelings, Anne. I can't believe the hear these women put into raising the children who will turn around and act just as disrespectfully as their mothers one day. It's saddening.
I am so glad you and everyone else is enjoying the book club and novel. I am too. Keep up the great discussions. I really love reading them, and they add so much to our overall experience.
