I'm reading The Book That Matters Most.

In front of a Degas--it had to be a Degas, she knew, it was ballet dancers rehearsing--she stopped. Her breath caught. Unlike the way she imagined Degas's dancers in her mind, up close Maggie saw that they looked tired, their faces hard and set, weary. They slumped and stretched and held their aching backs. She wondered if she looked that way too?

I like the writing style that comes out of the excerpt you shared. I wasn't familiar with this book (although the title immediately caught my eye--and I love the simplicity of the cover). From the description of this one, I think I might like it. Thank you for sharing! I hope you have a great weekend.
