My apologies to everyone...not only did I not get to read today but I am late to the discussion topic. I won't bore you with the particulars of my semi-bad day, but I would much rather have been here talking to you, I promise you!
I loved that line, too, Lucy! I love so many lines in this book already -- I think I should make a list. Brown has the freshest writer's voice I have seen in ages. Such a way she has with a phrase.
I am also growing fond of all three sisters as I read, and I want to see them work out their problems while improving their relationship with one another. I'm dying to know what y'all make of the first person plural narration, too. Sometimes it's as if two of them are discussing the third one. It's totally charming, don't you think?
Finally, I agree that something else is holding Rose back. She has many fears, methinks.
