From the chapter "Crossing to Safety": "The novel gave us a way to discuss some of the things she was facing and some of the things I was facing."
Have you ever had a similar experience? What was the title of your shared book?
Personally, the people around me in my life are not readers. I'm sure I must have had such a discussion at some time. I'm too old not to have had. I wish it were otherwise, but I cannot remember ever having such a discussion!
