An Oregon Memoir
By Kim Cooper Findling
Chance of Sun tells the story of a girl growing up in the 1970s-1980s of Oregon. It also tells of her finding who she is, as she grows from a girl into the woman and writer that is Kim Cooper Findling.
Kim tells what it is like to grow up in rural Oregon, the child of a forester. She writes of the natural wonders and a time of freedom on many levels.
Throughout her memoir we see Kim searching for herself and her place, and we see her perhaps lose herself along the way. She speaks openly of her escapades throughout her youth, going from the wilds of rural Oregon to the wild city nightlife.
As she moves through life, Kim finds herself moving back to her roots, back to the real Oregon. She is not shy about sharing the person she is and her story of self-discovery. Her writing is bold and raw in its sincerity. She remains true to herself and to the reader.
