Gisela’s review of The Cure for Dreaming

I definitely have a few tears in my eyes after reading those final lines. This book takes place during the early 1900’s when women were fighting for the right to vote, and that ending gave me so much hope.

I could see so much of myself in Olivia (as I’m sure almost everyone lady can), but mostly because throughout the book she becomes awaken to the realities of the world and how unequal it is. She did already have a little spark in her in the beginning of the book, but because of the events with her father and the hypnotist (swoonnnn) that spark turned to flame.

I look up to her. It’s a brave than to finally find your voice, and it is even braver when you finally use it. I guess the them of this week was dreamers, because again, this book reinforced the fact that when we dream and act for a better world… it can happen. We can make it happen.

I leave you with this: “Perhaps it is better to wake up after all, even to suffer, rather than to remain a dupe to illusions all one’s life.” – Kate Chopin (The Awakening)
