Slow Love by Dominique Browning is the book you want to love, you want to embrace, but at the same time it will drive you crazy. It is her narrative voice and self-analysis which brought back my own forgotten past of lovers quarrels and games. I suspect if I were a book at the time my friends would have slammed me shut and thrown me across the floor for constantly dwelling on love gone sour.
It’s these classic books that we have all thrown across the floor that end up on our book shelf like a distant memory. As the author moves forward with her life and downsizes her home. She is faced with the daunting of task of what is the value of worth in her own collection of books. It is here that she makes the pain-stacking decision to move forward by parting with stacks of her collection.
A condensed library of books summarizes the different stages of life, who you were, who you are, and who you dream to be. It is books which nurture the soul when love has gone sour or life just doesn’t go your way. Slow Love reminds us that nobody is perfect and we are all just a work in progress like a really good book.
