The Almost Moon
By: Alice Sebold
Unfolding over the next twenty-four hours, this searing, fast-paced novel explores the complex ties between mothers and daughters, wives and lovers, the meaning of devotion, and the line between love and hate. It is a challenging, moving, gripping story, written with the fluidity and strength of voice that only Alice Sebold can bring to the page.

I chose this passage because it reminds me that everyone has to go through heart ships in life and everyone has to take the same amount of time to grow and and there are no shortcuts down the road of life.
