110:86 The Years by Virginia Woolf

My first time reading Virginia Woolf.  I was going to start with one more normally spoken about but I needed a book starting with 'Y' for a challenge and went with this one and I'm glad I did.  It was a slow read but I feel that's how it should have been.  It was a series of snapshots in time of one family as the children grow up and become parents in their own rights.  It encompasses their lives, their thoughts, their feelings from a time when so many things were left unsaid.  There was no plot per se, but just a snapshot of their lives in different years.  Sweet and poignant.
