Day 13 - a fiction book that is meaningful to you since your loss

The Hound Saga by Mette Ivie Harrison

"True" and "Deeply human" are the strongest best compliments I know how to give to a piece of writing, and I would give Mette Ivie Harrison's stories both of them. They made me want to never stop reading, made me want to wake up in her version of the world; even though it is no less dangerous than my own. These books got me through the roughest parts of my summer, and I'll never forget them.

I think I would have loved these stories, even years ago; but the underlying themes resonate with me now in a way that wouldn't have been possible before I came to grips with the harsh realities of my past.
