  6. This one sounds interesting and it's a new to me author. I like the excerpt. I wonder why it's been so long and what has happened to her in the meantime?

  10. That bit made me think of my own life. After my Mom was gone, when I go to places we had gone together, I'll always noticed what has changed since she was alive.
