Sweeping Up Glass by Carolyn D. Wall
Sweeping Up Glass

renaissancerabbitry, November 18, 2009

Wow! I read the fantastic claims on the cover, never expected to call them understatements. The critic for The Boston Globe compared this novel to "To Kill A Mockingbird". Well, he is wrong, this book pulls you into the story much better than that.

Maybe it's the fact that this book is a "coming of age" story about a grandmother. Some of us have epiphanies as teens, but some of the larger life changes happen after we think we have already grown up. This book leads to that type of change.

"...I'm equally to blame. ...It's not that I pretended - I just didn't see." What powerful words. What a moving book!
