Our Love Could Light the World | Anne Leigh Parrish

#FierceFeb #FamilyAffair This short story collection focuses on The Dugan family who are entertaining in the way that you know you shouldn't stare-but just can't look away. They are down on their luck-mother runs off with her wealthy boss, father can't hold a job & 5 kids. The stories give glimpses into their lives over a 10-year span, some change & grow, others have setbacks. Gritty, touching, occasionally (darkly) humorous & very readable. 📚👍

Cinfhen Sounds like reality TV...I like it ❤️ 2y

The last movie I saw (where I ate #🍿). I'm not a circus fan, and I realize this glossed over a lot of things, but it's an upbeat film that will #chasethebluesaway (plus Hugh Jackman 😍😍😍). The tagged book is a #familyaffair, a mystery about P. T. Barnum' sister. And although the movie involves various love stories, I think Barnum's true #soulmate was show business. #thisremindsmeof #heartsandhardcovers #happinessisresistance #fiercefeb

Centique @Cinfhen took my 13yo to see this and she cried on the way home because it was OVER! 😳 She bought the soundtrack and I hear it on endless repeat. It‘s great to be a part of her first #musicalobsession though! 😊 2y

Dual timelines featuring a #familyaffair plus ‘80‘s #richpeopleproblems and even though I figured out where she was going I enjoyed getting there. #fiercefeb

Centique Perfect choice! 2y
rohit-sawant @Cinfhen It's on my list of rereads, too! Did you see the new Kenneth Branagh adaptation? As much as I love him, I went into it rolling my eyes since I thought a remake was unnecessary given how brilliant the David Suchet version was, but the performances and script were great, and it won me over! 2y
rohit-sawant Thank you, @Centique! ☺ 2y
Cinfhen No, I missed the film but I heard it was well done 2y
