“Where I once led, I have learn to follow”
I’ve always loved Anna Quindlen’s writing. Always full of spunk and quirkiness. This memoir speaks about Quindlen’s experience of being a grandma. It’s so refreshing to see her take this role and transition from mom mode. One of my favorite chapters would have to be the “No’s” chapter. I’m sure that’s one of the most hardest parts of being a grandmother. Knowing you no longer have that control, or can create the rules. It’s a bitter pill to swallow but, most have gone through it or will eventually go through it.
I picked up this book because I was raised by my grandmother, sadly she passed away in 2017 and have been pretty out without her. I wanted to read something heartfelt about the love of a grandmother. I really enjoyed it and I recommend it to anyone whose a soon to be grandmother or who already is. Thanks to NetGalley and Radon house for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
