I'm extremely proud of myself for making it through an 850-page novel in only two months but reading it was like trying haggis. I'm glad I did it, but I'm mot going to do it again.
What the hell did I just read?
Hannah took the quote: "Here's to strong women. May we know them. May we be them. May we raise them." and personified it.
I found Rita Dove's book to be equal parts highbrow and lowbrow - she creates poems that the most tenured literature professor can enjoy alongside poems a standard American will understand.
This heartwarming read is perfect for the holiday season. It reminds you that even with its trials, life is pretty magical.
