...whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Phil 4:8
Just finished The Lobster Chronicles...studying Isaiah, are you reading "A Man Called Peter" by Catherine Marshall?
I love summertime too and I also love to read. I am reading the book, "The Sovereign Grace of God As Seen in the Life of Job", by Glenna R. Salsbury. It is so encouraging to my heart. The book you are reading is one I would like to read too.
I love your "I love summertime" posts Lovella!! I have yet to pick up a good book and take time to read it this summer....
I'm just about ready to dive into The Joy of the Snow by Elizabeth Goudge. Sara talked about this book on her blog and the fact that Goudge lived in Wells, England until she was 10 or 11. Since we are staying a night in Wells in September I wanted to get some history tucked into my brain before we arrive...Looking forward to hearing more about your summer loves!
I've been working my way through quite a few Southern historical novels this summer. I am fascinated with the lives of women, particularly those who were poor, who grew up in the south in historical times such as post civil war and also the 1960's. I just finished two novels by Connie Mae Fowler: "Sugar Cage" and "Before Women Had Wings." Next I'm starting on Cane River, an Oprah Book club book.
I've just finished Peaches for Monsieur le Cure, by Joanne Harris - it was a good read.
I was thrilled to hear Peter Marshall's son speak several times years ago. Great legacy!Sara recommended books by Beverly Nichols, a British writer who wrote about gardening and English village life in the 1920, 1950s.I read six books in one week! If one like James Herriot one will like Mr. Nichols as well.
Looks like good reading!I just started a true story of two women held captive in Iran.
I, like Kathy, have recently read some historical novels set in the South - one I read that was particularly good and well written was "The Colour of the Soul" by Tracey Bateman. I have read the biography of Peter Marshall.. and found it inspiring.
