Run, Ann Patchett's latest bestseller. The story of a family, and the process they go through when their mother dies, and leaves her mamma shaped hole, that is to be filled and not to be filled. The storyline is much more complex than that though, Doyle's young wife dies after recently adopting two children. Doyle will be the mayor, the kids will grow up, but what impact will the loss of their wife/mother have on them?
I enjoyed this book, it was fun to read. The language was so pretty and fluid and I found it new and refreshing. I haven't read anything else by Ann Patchett before, even though I do own Bel Canto. This book really stirred in me emotions, and feelings and I loved it enough to allow myself the vulnerability. Twists and turns made the story less predictable, and kept my interest really well. Run made me realize I should get on top of things and read Bel Canto for sure.
The characters felt real, deep and worth knowing, their situations intense and intriguing, and there was for sure a strong connection that I felt toward it all. A great read. Go for it!
