Welcome to another Theme Thursdays, hosted by Reading Between Pages.
Every week, we grab a book and find excerpts that follow a theme. Then we link up at our host’s site.
FEELING (Happiness, sadness, surprise, etc )
I’ve chosen a book that I recently acquired and which is on my reading list for this week. The Love Children, by Marilyn French, was her final book and fictionalized a time when feminism was making its “second wave,” with all the struggles, joys, and successes. The book centers around the lives of girls and women in the 60s and 70s.
I gleaned my sense of happiness from books, especially from the pictures in them, and from glimpses of my own family at charmed moments, like when my father spoke with love in his voice or my mother made an affectionate gesture toward him. Such things filled me with as much happiness as drinking a glass of chocolate milk. p. 10
I hope you all will stop by and share your own “feelings” excerpts.
