River Flowing Page Turner! submitted by rainey on February 2, 2021, 10:36am Without ever feeling rushed or compelled -- I became totally immersed (what a gift in winter 2021) in the story of a holy family. Holy and hallowed can seem very distant and off-putting in the 21st century. But, in truth, holiness is when our presence to our life is smack close to the living of it. Somehow, in A Lie Someone Told You About Yourself, Peter Ho Davies carries us in the family's boat without intruding or giving the reader the easy out of voyeurism or sloppy emotionalism on complex emotions and issues. It is a riveting, flowing story of a family of three or four people (depending how you read), love, and the mess and murk of human life across decades, written without cheating the conclusion, the intimacy of details, or the characters. Thank you, Mr. Davies!
