A TALE OF TWO CITIES  |  CHARLES DICKENS

It was the best of times.  It was the worst of times . . . And, raising me, I know my Mom felt both ways lots of times! 

As for the story. . . The last few pages completely slay me.  When I read this for the first time, I was sobbing, sobbing, sobbing. 

My phone rings. More sobbing, sobbing, sobbing.

Caller:  "Are you O.K.?  What happened?"  

Me:  "The little seamstress.  She . .  She . . .I'm sorry. I'll have to talk to you later."

Click . . . Sobbing, sobbing, sobbing.

Just have the tissues ready . . .
