Hello Everyone,
Anyone any opinions yet on the Bonesetter's Daughter?
I am re reading it and I do find Art so annoying, he expects her- Ruth to do everything, I want to slap him!
That's cos I recognise myself of course!
Do let me kow what you think

So how is everybody doing with the book?
I hope you are not all bored with it (seeing as it was my suggestion!)
Was reading some of it last night and I thought the section where she, Ruth is so scared of her mother getting dementia was very poignant.
It is one of the things that is so hard to cope with when our mothers get old, they are the people who have looked after us in our most vulnerable times and now...it is like things have come full circle and it is really hard to deal with.
And then there are all those conflicting emotions...Ruth's mother drives her mad, she is so annoying and yet Ruth just wants to protect her now...
Any other thoughts on the book at all?
