First Impressions: Silk Hope, NC
February 8, 2019 5:42pm CST
I am about 125 pages into a 352 page book. I wasn't sure how I wanted to go about writing this discussion. I was originally going to just write a discussion about one of the quotes I like from the book. I haven't recorded any quotes in my quote diary, but I might. My Impressions on : Frannie is a young woman lost in a dream world. The book opens to her running away from a man she had been with the night before. Her sister and that sister's boyfriend are out looking for her. She had been gone for three days. Natalie is the sister and from the start, I am not too impressed with her. I guess I relate more to Frannie than I do Natalie. Frannie is a free spirit, a dreamer, just like I am. Natalie is more practical, more logical. Jake is Natalie's boyfriend. I wasn't sure what to think of him at first but then I've discovered that things are not what they seem with him. It is yet to be determined what happens with him, but I do believe he's trying to pull one over on the girls. The girls have just inherited an old farm house on 12 acres of land. It was their mothers before them, and her mothers before that. It is a home passed down only to the females in the family. This is a wonderful book and I do think I am going to like it. I think "the other show" will eventually drop. I've been told this was made into a movie, I've never read the book before or heard of the movie. Silk Hope, is an actual place here in NC. We have a member here that does not live very far from this place, if I am not mistaken. I am about two hours away - give or take. Have you read this?

No, definitely not a common practice. I believe the story is purely fictional. The current generations great grandmother or great great grandmohter had been tricked by a man. Her daughter was the one that decided to start the practice of passing the family home down to the ladies. It used to be a vast property but is not only down to 12 acres. Silk Hope, NC is an actual place though.

@hillhjill That is understandable. I feel that way about watching television a lot of times. Sometimes I will put down a book and not pick it back up for a few months as well, it just depends. Here lately though, books have helped me cope with anxiety and stress. The added bonus is that I get to talk about it with other 'lotters.
