Theme Thursday - Women Relationships - Lavina, Minnie and Mother

Theme Thursdays

Theme Thursdays is a fun weekly event that will be open from one thursday to the next. Anyone can participate in it. The rules are simple:
  • A theme will be posted each week (on Thursday’s)
  • Select a conversation/snippet/sentence from the current book you are reading
  • Mention the author and the title of the book along with your post
  • It is important that the theme is conveyed in the sentence (you don’t necessarily need to have the word)
    Ex: If the theme is KISS; your sentence can have “They kissed so gently” or “Their lips touched each other” or “The smooch was so passionate”
This will give us a wonderful opportunity to explore and understand different writing styles and descriptive approaches adopted by authors.
We just celebrated Mother’s day so this week’s theme had to be a celebration of women. Go ahead and post on ……..

The Autobiography of Mrs. Tom Thumb: A NovelRelation that one can have with a women like Mother, Aunt, Grandmother, Sister, Girlfriend etc


The Autobiography of Mrs. Tom Thumb: A Novel

""Of course! I wond't let her out of my sight for a moment! I have so much planned for the two of us, Charles will get very jealous indeed!" I seized upon this request, fell upon it as a soldier might fall upon his own sword. This was how I could recapture Mama's trust: by caring for Minnie as if she was my daughter, too.  Nothing bad would come to her, no harm, no disappointment , no pain or sorrow.  Not as long as she was with me."
