The Manual - Epictetus - A Short Summary and Review

Postcards From A Stranger - Imogen Clark - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of Postcards From A Stranger:

The search for my hidden mother in secret.

My favorite Imogen Clark quote from the book:

"Love is a learned behavior, I understand. If you're not shown it then you struggle to demonstrate it to others."

Questions to ponder while reading the book:

What secrets exist in your attic?

Have your parents ever lied to you?

My review of Postcards From A Stranger:

A good book about a troubled family.

Makes you wonder what "adult" behavior really is.

I was a bit unsatisfied at the end.
