Highlighted Mondays is a weekly meme originally hosted and created by Rebeca at “Books and Messy Buns”,that anyone can join.

Since her blog is going through some changes and I really like her weekly memes, I asked for her permission to continue
with them and here we are. All you have to do to participate is:

  • Pick up the book you’re currently reading (be it a physical or electronic copy)
  • Find a sentence you like (because it’s funny or cute or mysterious or whatever you find interesting)
  • Highlight the sentence
  • Make a post in your own blog where you share your highlighted sentence and link back to my blog as the host
  • Share the link to your post in the comments’ section here for the book community to see:)

Note: Please refer the creator and of the meme the host (this blog/this post) in your own post and leave a comment down below with a link to your RF so all the participant can have a look and share their thoughts too!

My Highlighted Sentence:

– The Memory Keeper´s Daughter by Kim Edwards

I just started reading this book , so I don´t really have a lot to say but this sentences caught my attention because I think it´s the single phrase that lets you get in the head of Dr. Henry and makes you understand why he made the decisions he did.

The book was recommended to me by a friend and it´s actually a pretty good. The author has a really deep and captivating narrative that immediately sucks you into the story. ´till the point that you can feel the snow and the humidity and dust of the… medical center? where nurse Caroline was supposed to leave her precious cargo.

10441But if I had to choose what has been what has made me read this book none stop, I guess I would have to go with the characters, ´ cause I believe it was Kim Edwards intention all along to make you understand where each character was coming from and care about them -or at least for now-, ´til the point where although there´s people doing things we´d consider bad, you can´t see them as simple villains.

It is also interesting to see something as Dawn syndrome portraited in old times, when medicine wasn´t as advanced as it is today and people didn´t know that it didn´t exactly mean a death sentence. Makes you wonder which current illness will be like that in the future, right?

Anyway if you like historical fiction, dramas and well-written characters with a captivating narrative, The Memory Keeper´s Daughter could be just what you´re looking for.
