Weekend Pick

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.
