A short summary of The Optimist's Daughter:

Reflecting on one's life and a parent's past after a death.

My favorite quote from the book:

"Surviving is perhaps the strangest fantasy of them all."


Questions to ponder while reading The Optimist's Daughter:

Have you always agreed with your parents?

Do you live in the past?

My thoughts about the book:

I recognized soooo many people at the funeral.

It makes you wonder who truly knows you.

It makes you wonder who truly cares.
