The Rendezvous

The Rendezvous  by Justine Levy
1999
Weight: 5.6 oz
Method of Disposal: Leaving somewhere in Lithonia, GA


This book is what a woman remembers while waiting on her non-existent, but oh-so-beautiful mother, at a caf√©.  In the time it takes her to admit she has been stood up we are able to review every single memory she has of her mom, mostly bad, though she adores her.  I could not get into the book, though I very much appreciate the idea.  The last page was lovely, the way it wrapped it all up. 

It is really not the fault of the story that I am not in the mood to moon over lackluster "parents" who go about their sad existences while hurting their offspring all along the way and never take responsibility for their actions.  No animosity here.
