Sea of Memories - Fiona Valpy - A Short Summary & Review


A short summary of Sea of Memories:

Writing the bittersweet life of my grandmother Ella.

My favorite Fiona Valpy quote from the book:

"As you well know yourself, you can't always choose what life throws at you. But you always have a choice in how you deal with it."

Questions to ponder while reading Sea Of Memories:

Has your life ever been altered by things you can't control?

What would you do if you got a second chance?

My review of the book:

A total "hot chocolate and warm blanket" book.

Very sappy and so much fun.

I couldn't imagine giving up my soul mate.
