Onion Girl

I’m still up, hop­ing sam­bear will get home some­time while it’s still today. Yes, he’s still at the office. This is the price for tak­ing two “vaca­tion days” to cel­e­brate his birth­day tomor­row and Friday.

I fin­ished Onion Girl by Charles de Lint today. I’m glad I did. When I real­ized that it deals with child­hood sex­u­al abuse, I near­ly put it down. With most authors, I would have, no ques­tion. But some­how, I trust de Lint. So I kept read­ing. I don’t know if I’ll pay for it with more night­mares or flash­backs, but I did read the whole book.

It’s a good sto­ry. It’s about heal­ing and redemp­tion, ulti­mate­ly. And while I did­n’t entire­ly *like* some of the end­ing, it was right. It was the only right thing for these char­ac­ters and their stories.
