Some books you read for the story and some for knowledge or insight. Others you read because they are so beautifully written like from the author Colette.
My Mothers House and Sido is of her childhood stories in France and her strong attachment to her mother. Clearly, she has the fondest memories of her childhood. The writing also touches on her mother’s love for her garden and plants. While reading it, I picture in my mind romantic gardens of wisteria, roses, and other blooms.
