The Manual - Epictetus - A Short Summary and Review

Threshing of Straw - Kim Catron - A Short Summary and Review


A short summary of Threshing of Straw:

A little girl's life in a family of secrets.

My favorite Kim Catron quote from the book:

"Secret? Lie? Maybe there really wasn't a difference."

Questions to ponder while reading the book:

Do you trust your mother?

What secrets does your family have?

My review of Threshing of Straw:

A great story to spend the day with.

A totally heartwrenching read.

Could not put it down.
