Always a reader. Writing to remember and to share my thoughts on the books I read.
The Story of Land and Sea by Katy Simpson Smith is a story of the parent-child relationship and of loss. The story is not told chronologically, but the constant focus on parenting and loss rather than the time and place provide its own continuity throughout the book. The book is not an easy read, but definitely a worthwhile one and a beautifully written one.
