    I love that shiver of recognition I feel when I find a passage like the one you describe in “Lucy by the Sea.” When epiphanies like this happen in the context of the lives of characters I’ve come to know, the issues feel nuanced and relatable in ways that sermons can’t touch. Thank you, Lucy by the Garden!

      Yes, these epiphanies are what I read for. And what we try to write towards. Thanks and lots of merries these coming days!

    Thank you, Lucy…Books that have “widened my understanding” this past year are; Caste, The Warmth of Other Suns, Finding Chika, A Warrior of the People”, The Death of Raymond Yellow Thunder, and now I hold in my hand Olive Kitteridge by your Elizabeth Strout. Happy Holidays!

      Thanks for the books suggestions, Mike. I’ve read the first two of the books you mention, and my eyes were truly opened. I’ll add the other books to my “To Read” list. Happy holidays back to you!–Lucy
