“I learned early on that we create our own narrative. It doesn’t matter what other people say about us as long as we know who and what we are. And here’s the other thing people don’t want you to know: you don’t have to be the same thing all the time.”
I hope to be able to introduce you to beautifully written novels, savory meals, deliciously sweet treats and maybe even a few refreshing drinks.
Don’t Put the Boats Away was a trip through history. Ames Sheldon managed to fit in all of the major historical occurrences into the 291 pages of the book and I thought she did a tremendous job at doing so.
I loved THE OYSTERVILLE SEWING CIRCLE for everything that it stood for. Susan Wiggs did an incredible job writing a story that addressed the prevalence of domestic violence in our world without making the entire book a heavy, unbearable read. It was simply a beautiful story about the importance of sticking together and offering support.
Allison Simpson came to bury her past but what she digs up could destroy her future..
“You don’t have to be like me, but anxiety from any decision comes from thinking about the devision, and not the decision itself.”
“If you leave a door half-open, soon you’ll hear the whispers spoken. If you play outside alone, soon you won’t be going home. If your window’s left unlatched, you’ll hear him tapping at the glass. If you’re lonely, sad, and blue, the Whisper Man will come for you.”
Is it just me or does it feel like yesterday was August 1st? How did the entire month of August fly by this fast? I hope that in this beautiful stack of books that you can find something you enjoy reading!
“A great sorrow, and one that I am only beginning to understand; we don’t get to choose our own hearts. We can’t make ourselves want what’s good for us or what’s good for other people. We don’t get to choose the people we are…”
“If I have learned anything in this long life of mine, it is this: in love we find out who we want to be; in war we find out who we are…”
“You can’t rewrite the past. But, you can choose to live with your whole heart in the here and now.”
It is obvious to me that the author Ellen Clary did her research. The way that she wrote about dogs and her knowledge of animals was fascinating. I could tell that this is something near and dear to her heart.
