    One thought on “Settling Day: A Memoir”

    1. Perhaps should rate it 2.5. I found it a bit frustratingme of the decisions that she made, and kept making throughout her life; some of the relationships that she made, without much thought of the consequences; putting so much money into some ventures and then pulling out and changing directions; that online friendship that she pursued that she really shouldn't have. Good on her, she battled through, but she could have made things easier for herself.

    2. Kate Haworth has written a powerful account of her amazing life. I found this book absorbing and moving. I admired Kate's brilliance as recounted in her business successes and her practical achievements. Yet at times I could barely read the next sentence as she let her heart rule her head with some truly tragic outcomes. Still she has lived and loved deeply and I feel so lucky to have come across this well written account of a life well lived.

    3. The sequel to Ten Hail Mary's, I loved his book.The story continues from Kate moving on without her son and explores her fascinating life and adventures.This is so well written, it was like having a chat with an old friend. A cliche, but it is so true.Kate Howarth is a wonderful writer.

    4. I kept hoping she was sincere about tracking down her son but instead she purchased motorbikes and ran off overseas to marry a man she just met, etc. That would be a lot more palatable if she didn't pretend it was all for her son's sake. Couldn't finish this.
