True Places — Book Review

on September 19, 2018

True PlacesTrue Places by Sonja Yoerg

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved True Places, from start to finish. Wonderful storytelling and insightful exploration of important issues of modern living. This book will particularly appeal to those searching for their own True Places and those remembering their own true selves.

A taste of what I loved:

~ Beautiful writing and themes dear to my heart.

“The cabin stood in a small clearing, and the trees surrounding it had strained toward the heavens for a long time, long enough for the trunks to have become too thick for the girl to enclose them in the circle of her arms, long enough for anyone with decency to fall silent in reverence.”

~ Fresh looks at life which will particularly resonate with mothers.

“That was, in fact, what time was: a narrow container for relentless succession of tasks.”

“Her life seemed ludicrous to her at times. She didn’t dwell on it–it was futile–but she did occasionally entertain the notion that her activities and duties did not add up to a satisfying or even useful existence.”

~ And, a non-spoiler peek at the line behind the title.

“Sometimes it takes a stranger to show you what should be obvious, how far you’ve drifted from who you want to be, from what’s right for you, your true place.”
