New Book

I picked up a few books from the library and one was "The soul of a woman" by Isabel Allande.

I read it at one sitting, laughing and thinking of my own experiences over the years.  It catches the thinking of the writter and the spirit of the life and times of many women who grew up in the 1960's and 70's.  It is more of a conversation than anything else and I felt that she was sitting in the room talking to me. It has me thinking about women's roles in society had how they have changed over those years?  You don't think about it until it is laid out like that in print.  She paints her mother and grandmother in bright colours and you feel as if you could have known them.  It is a book about females but, although she would hate to admit it,  she likes males. ( As witnessed by her three marriages.) I'm not quite sure even she has reconciled that part of her character. 

A most enjoyable read.

Yes, there is so much that has changed for women in my lifetime. Some of it I didn't even know needed to change, some of it I thought already had!

It is wonderful when you find a really good book and engross in reading it from cover to cover.

I came from a family of strong woman.  They ran their own business’ and it came as a shock to me, as a young women, that that  wasn’t the norm.
