To know where you are, you must understand where you started.

This is the second time I have read this book. This first time I read this book, I was in my mid teens. I enjoyed immensly, and the main character Dolores always stuck with me.
I recently decided to re-read this book, to see if I would enjoy it as much as a grown up. This book touched me much more this time. Having lived life and experiencing the normal ups and downs of growing up, I understood this story much better. This is a story full of pain, confusion as well as inner strength and perspective that comes with becoming an adult.
This story follows Deloras from blindness of childhood to middle age. She experiences (what feels like) love, loss of a parent, additional losses and disappointments in life, lack of direction as well as battling mental instability which seems to be inherited from her mother.
In the end there is an understading that life may not go as planned, but the journey is different for everyone. In the end you may get your happy ending - even if it doesn't look the way you pictured it.
Be prepared to continue thinking about Miss Dolores Price long after the last page.
