I'm reading a memoir, "The Long Way Home" by Jessica Scott. The quote is from 56%  in the egalley.


It was one of those heart-stopping, holy shit moments that makes just about every writer in the country just about have a heart attack. And then, the letdown came.

  1. I wonder what moment was this.

    Sounds like a heart-wrenching book though. Anything that has to do with war is just heart-breaking.

    1. I finished last night and it is heart-breaking but there's hope too and it's very good.
