We all think of, wish for yesterday, all the good times we had. Maybe yesterday isn't what we need. This book has taught me so much about relating with people, about love. I think it will do the same for you. There are friends that will never be anything less than family to us_ the ones who are always ready to sacrifice self, the imperfect ones that we forgive and apologize to.
And Mama Pearls' death made me cry, no lie. Callies selfishness & self-centredness left me surprisingly broken hearted. Like, how can a person be that way?
Love. The different kind of love I came across in the book filled my heart and soul with so many good stuff I can't place. Some lines that made me WOW:
"It's about taking control of your life, no matter what the situation is."
"You know what? I don't wish for yesterday anymore, and I don't look forward to tomorrow either. I live for today..."
"Pearl of Parker Manor joined Lazarus just as the sun began to set. Those left behind, standing sentinel, listened to the strangled breath and then fell into each others arms. They sobbed together, comforted each other as they tried to lock themselves together, fearing aloness would somehow rob them of their feelings. They loved as one, they cried as one, and they grieved as one."
Devour the book at once.
