does the soul remember?

bloodroot: a flower whose blood-red sap possesses the power to both heal and poison.

bloodroot: a book by amy greene....set in the appalachian curses...granny relationships...and the fierceness of a mothers love..this book reminds us that "you can't run away from who you are or where you come from".

i do love reading anything about the appalachian way of life...maybe it's because my family roots can be traced back to those hills...does the soul remember?...i think it does...whatever the reason...this was a delicious read!

"some creatures are just meant to be left alone.
they can't be held on to...
even if we love them
more than anything"

~ douglas cotter - bloodroot
