That was a good read, LoneStar, and you make a great point about minorities within minorities. Thanks for sharing. Religion is interesting because it can provide such a strong sense of community on the one hand, but at the same time can be so isolating for people who don’t fit into those traditional norms. I can imagine how difficult it must be for single women to navigate that set of circumstances.
And not at all related to the topic above, but I liked this piece about dating as an ambivert.
Hey Mariposa! Thank you so much for the suggestion. I got the book and I’m already well into chapter 8. Honestly, I went in expecting something very different, but I am pleasantly surprised. Chapter 7 definitely felt validating to me. It was refreshing to be thought of, validated, and understood in this book, as I am someone who is far from the typical protagonist in love stories.
So far, it’s been a good read.
