I think this is the most important book I’ve read in a long while.
Mrs.Thompson writes a thought provoking, courageous memoir. She writes of life and healing after the unimaginable loss of her eldest son. Each chapter speaks to a portion of her own life (and that of her son), in such visual detail that you feel as though she is a close personal friend telling you this story over coffee and tears. There’s a real transparency to this memoir that makes it feel raw, and your heartaches for the family.
The World Looks Different Now is a book that needs to be read by everyone willing to read it. I think I’ll remember the Thompson family’s story for the rest of my life.
Thank you to @margaretrileythomson for the gifted copy.
