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.
