Pulled out of the basket and the sleeve is finished.
Now do I do the neck facing? or the second sleeve?
Every once in a while, a book that you are reading just resonates and you absorb it from start to finish. Not because it is a pounding thriller or a mystery that has to be solved but because it is speaks to the results of pivotal choices and what we make of our lives. The Memory Keeper’s Daughter by Kim Edwards is such a book [ISBN 0-14-303813-3 published by Penguin Books].
Perhaps it is because I remember the years of which she is speaking, of what school was like if you were different and of the attitudes towards Down’s even when I started medical school. Even with the increasing rarity of the condition in the western world secondary to prenatal testing, the under lying story of decisions, secrets and people’s lives will hold up as literature.
