A must read for every Nana
Reviewed in the United States on April 24, 2019
I seldom write reviews here, but this time I could not resist. I cannot recall the last time I read a book that had me gasp with recognition again and again. Quindlen captures perfectly the transcendent love of grandchildren, the joy of watching your own children parent, and the careful calibration this new role requires. She is able to zoom in on the wonder of her first grandchild, while also zooming out to see him--and herself-- as part of a family chain that stretches forward and backward. My heart is full of Quindlen's literary arrows that hit their marks.
