If you are a regular on this blog, you might read me quoting Erin in the coming months. Creative writing, refreshing story, authentic heart.
From the back cover, “For everyone, reading aloud engages the mind in complex narratives; for children, it’s an irreplaceable gift that builds vocabulary, fosters imagination, and kindles a lifelong appreciation of language, stories and pictures.” Inspiring and interesting read, for sure.
This is probably my 3rd time reading this book, and every time I am rejuvenated to seek and listen for God in the ordinary and major moments of my day.
A journey from the present day to World War II England, as two sisters are separated by the chaos of wartime. A few chapters in, I could hardly put it down, the last few chapters were pretty slow. But it was a good story overall!
From the back cover: “These forty daily readings are an opportunity to explore both the shadow and the light that radiates from the front porches of our personality and deeper into the soul that lays within. Each reading concludes with an opportunity for further engagement such as a journaling prompt, reflection questions, a written prayer, or a spiritual practice.”
I’m REALLY enjoying these thoughtful, short chapters. Hunter is offering clarity, helpful language and turning my focus toward Christ.
“Funny, heartbreaking, enthralling, it is destined to become a modern classic–a richly rewarding novel of women’s friendship, of true love, and of what happens when we reach beyond our grasp for the great beyond.” Lovely prose and strong characters. Took me a little bit to get into it, but once I was hooked it was hard to stop!
