The Friday 56: The Help

Grab a book, any book. Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader. Find any sentence, (or few, just don’t spoil it) that grabs you. Post it.

“It’s all about putting yourself in a man-meeting situation where you can-“

“Mama,” I say just wanting to end this conversation, “would it really be so terrible if I never met a husband?”

Mother clutches her bare arms as if made cold by the thought. “Don’t say that, Eugenia. Why, every week I see another man in town over six feet and think, If Eugenia would just try…” She presses her hand to her stomach, the very thought advancing her ulcers.

I really love this quote. I really loved this book. I need to reread this book!
