Pieces, No. 7: Summer 2018 – Books

The Blind Assassin by Margaret Atwood

This is one of those books that I have thoroughly enjoyed and that I will have to read again. It has what I like in a novel: richly developed stories and characters and layers, a world I can immerse myself in. I will have to read more of Margaret Atwood’s books.

 

One Beautiful Dream by Jennifer Fulwiler

This memoir was entertaining, insightful, and relevant to my life. I may not be a Catholic mother with six children, but this is a good book not only for people interested in how to balance modern motherhood with personal passions, but also for people, like me, who are trying to figure out what to do with their lives, what their gifts are, and how their lives might fit into a bigger picture. Jennifer Fulwiler’s stories from this book and from her Facebook posts are one of the sources of wisdom and experience this summer that has been informing my changing perspective on how to approach life.
