About Beneath Everything
“Nothing remained permanent, regardless of how much a person clung to it. The job, the money, the security, all of it just sat on the surface of a world that rotated and flowed. Sarah didn’t want to stand by idle, watching life rotate around her anymore. She wanted to leap onto the moving parts and be the one rotating.” I’ve only seen glimpses of the level of insight in other works of contemporary lesbian fiction. The late, great Sandra Moran. Famous Author, Ann McMan. Rachel Spangler. I putting this book on my re-read! Thank you, Suzie Carr. – Katherine Charles
This book is about freedom of the soul. It’s about all the things you get but don’t even want. It’s also about breaking free from a society who makes us think that life is slavery to a work you don’t even enjoy. Gosh it even made me want to take a plane to Bonaire and go scuba diving.
In every read you get to learn at least something but this read was so vivid it made me want to make a change and take more risks.
I won’t exaggerate if I say this book is a life changer and it’s author is very wise… – Ange Drummer
