Truth is many things. Sometimes truth is what we want or maybe what we have. It may be what we choose to believe. Sometimes it is something real. Something echt. Something genuine. Sometimes you know the truth when you speak it. I am slow, but I know this. (p. 277)
Lottery by Patricia Wood is a book I discoverd from a book review a couple years ago and never got around to reading. What took me so long? I really enjoyed the characters and insights found in this wonderfully told story of a mentally challenged young man who wins the state lottery. He is now confronted with choices, decisions, and people that are new to him. But with the love and support of a small group of friends, and the knowledge and history he shared with his grandmother, this young man astonishes everyone. I loved the ending! I recommend the book Lottery to other readers.
