Dance of the Dissident Daughter

The Dance of the Dissident Daughter I have to say that finishing The Dance was difficult. I started this book in January with a great deal of enthusiam. After I had read 40 pages or so, I called Beth to tell her about the book. Sometime in mid-January, I put the book down and didn't pick it up again until late February. (Of course, Beth finished the book long before I got started reading again.) I read with eagerness, glad to follow Sue's journey from dissatisfaction into awakening. And then I bogged down again. It's been almost a month since I had last opened the book, but I threw it into my carry-on bag for today's flight to Cleveland.

And finished it around 22:20 CDT.

I have to agree with the woman who recommended this book — it's probably the most significant book I will read this year. I will now re-read the book and mark those passages which speak to me most loudly.

  1. Glad you put your mind to it and finished. Now for the thorough rereading. Perhaps part of why I finished it straight thru is that I journalled it as I went. When an idea hit me, I wrote about it.

    Or perhaps Mother God and the Spirit Herself pushed me to get all the way to the end...
