I am about half way through the book. It is very hard to put down! Here are a couple of quotes that I liked.
Abbi was helping pass out stuff at a retiremnet home and she had free cabbage for whoever wanted it and offered it to an old lady and this was the old ladies response "What do I want that for? I don't buy cabbage 'cause I don't like it, so why would I take it now it's free?". It made me think of my pack rat-itis (made up word) that I have. If it's free I need it, actually no I don't. I was accumulating free junk from people and I have since learned that just because it is free does not mean I need it. That old lady hit it on the nail!
Here is another quote from the beginning of the book: "Startled by the light and the rush of air against its body, the newborn scrunched up its face and wailed, fists flailing like a prizefighter's, knuckles bluish-gray and filmy. The umbilical cord hung from its-her-belly, a dirty shoelcae knotted near the frayed end."
Parrish is very good at descriptions and capturing your attention. When I read that I felt like I was the with the deputy when he found her. Made me want to cry!
