Letter to My Daughter
By George Bishop
Ballantine Books, 2010. 148 pgs. Fiction
When her 15-year-old daughter runs away from their Baton Rouge home, a guilt-ridden mother writes a healing letter about her own adolescence, marked by a strict Catholic boarding school, a forbidden romance and the origins of an enigmatic tattoo.
I picked this book up and couldn’t put it down. Reading about Laura’s adolescence and her desire to have a better relationship with her own teenage daughter was intriguing. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a quick, but meaningful read.
