Atwood gives us a lovely short story about the truth behind love. Our main character is a teenage girl in the 1950’s and she is plagued by the overbearing and a bit unusual claims her mother makes. As the girl grows older and becomes a mother herself, we see her begin to understand the method to her mother’s madness.
While it is short, Atwood draws us right into these characters within a few lines. I wanted to believe the mother more than anyone. I’m never a huge fan of a short story, hence my middle of the road rating but should this one get turned into something longer, I would be all for it. ⭐️⭐️⭐️💫
This was free with Prime membership and I listened to it on audio.

In my free time, I always have a book in my hand... or two or three! On average, I read 20 books a month. I have looked to combine two of my skill sets to review on Goodreads and promote books on Instagram that I love to other readers.
I'm open to partnering with publishers as an influencer for book tours, giveaways etc.
