For every book you read, it's something different to you. And just as in life, the experience is individual to the reader.
This marks the beginning of a new (hopefully staple) discussion series on Ups, Downs, Ins and Outs - #WhatAreYouReading? Where, yes, I ask the question of what you are reading and more I share with you something of the story (or stories) that I am currently reading that day. Now let's begin...
Today I've pulled out some beloved old friends, the Quinn brothers: Cam, Ethan and Phillip, and their new brother Seth. For those who can't immediately name the series it's Nora Roberts' Chesapeake Bay Saga. I've read this series a dozen times in the past and I still get choked with emotion every single time I read it. From the first page (okay maybe the second or third) the array of emotion surges forth and you're caught. Or I am in any case.
Today I begin the journey again with the boys. I watch and wait as Cameron meets Anna, the fiercely determined Social Worker, and his whole outlook on life make a right turn. I hope for the best as each of the Quinn men must find their own way to relate to Seth, and he in turn must come to trust them. I pray for Grace and Ethan to find each other, because, damn it, they need one another so much. I look forward to a battle of will and character as Phillip confronts Sybill, and finally the truth about Seth is learned. Then I watch with wonder (and some pain for the little boy who once was) while Seth finds his own bright future with Dru.
So now here's the question: #WhatAreYouReading?
