Why did I love this book?
This is the book I wish I had written, because it so well reflects some of the struggles with love I’ve had. It is the story of a woman who lives and makes love according to her own standards. At first, she does it in secret and has no problem ignoring the norms of society. But when her life is turned upside down by these same norms, she is thrown back, feeling numb and doing nothing. I can so much identify with how she handles the dilemma of wanting to follow your own wishes in a culture that sets a lot of limits on how women live their lives. I admire how she gets back on top of things even when life sucks big time. It’s also structured in a great way that made it a page-turner for me on love, sex, and friendships. It made me smile, laugh and cry.
