A Quiet Life in Bedlam by Patricia Bjornstad

A Quiet Life in Bedlam by Patricia Bjornstad

Reading A Quiet Life in Bedlam feels like listening to your grandma reminiscing about their life. Some of the stories are outlandish, some are sad, some are funny, some are shocking. I found myself wanting to give the narrator, Kate, a hug. She has a lovely self-deprecating sense of humor. Sprinkled throughout are bits of songs and a little commentary on the times (60s through early 70s). I was totally sucked in to the story and couldn’t wait to find out more about Kate’s life. It’s really well-written. I recommend this book to adult women.
