The story of Beautiful Girl - Rachel Simon
It is 1968. Lynnie, a young white woman with a developmental disability, and Homan, an African American deaf man, are locked away in an institution, the School for the Incurable and Feebleminded, and have been left to languish, forgotten. Deeply in love, they escape, and find refuge in the farmhouse of Martha, a retired schoolteacher and widow. But the couple is not alone-Lynnie has just given birth to a baby girl. When the authorities catch up to them that same night, Homan escapes into the darkness, and Lynnie is caught. But before she is forced back into the institution, she whispers two words to Martha: "Hide her." And so begins the 40-year epic journey of Lynnie, Homan, Martha, and baby Julia-lives divided by seemingly insurmountable obstacles, yet drawn together by a secret pact and extraordinary love.
wow Stormey, that sounds like an interesting crazy story!
So I was reading my FB page and apparently Helio Castroneves and Will Power are eating in Detroit, promoting our Grand Prix for next year. Don't know who they are, but they're both good looking!
So it was raining a lot on my vaca and I had 19 hours of traveling to kill 2 times. I read two books and ofcourse lots of magazines
Saturday's Child by Valerie Blumenthal: I liked it at first and then it dawned on me that I have read many books about ladies who get up one day and start a new secret life somewhere in a nice beach village. Been there, done that, not reading it again!
The house by the sea by Santa Montefiore: Loved it, loved it, loved it!!!! If you get a change, read it!
My sister is reading 50 shades of grey...
(I don't study german... only spanish..)
Finished the second and the third books from the Hunger Games trilogy... I HATE THE AUTHOR! no one should ever forgive her for the world of pain and misery she created around those characters, provided they actually survived which is by itself, a miracle! Hate heeeeeer!
I only read the first book and it made me feel sad and depressed!
She waits until we actually like and care for the characters, and then she either kills them or changes their life so awfully they "disappear" as we knew them... that CAN'T be fair for us (can't wait for November though, the second film comes out and I REALLY want to see If I imagined the scenes the right way)
