Sheer wondering doesn't come close to touching the themes of love, abandonment and the burden of motherhood that Kim McLarin explores in Jump at the Sun. The novel takes a stark look at what it's like to be a mother and to be mothered, the payoff and the cost.
Full disclosure: I know Kim. She used to be a reporter at the Inquirer, which made me want to crack open her newest offering even more. So glad I did. A perfect read for a long weekend.
Ta-ta til Tuesday.
