A Strange Complement

The reading of "These Dreams" continues... and I can't stop crying. I was getting ready for bed, and I stopped to read a few pages and its two crying jags and 45 minutes later now. As a mother, this book is intensely emotional... intensely painful to read. But it is so well done. I have to know how it ends, have to know how Cricket heals from this pain. How she heals her family.

But right now, I just keep crying. Because I just keep thinking how I would feel if these things happened to my family... because they are SO vivid. And oh gods...

The book is fantastic. It wouldn't hurt like this if it weren't.
