5.0 out of 5 stars Pure bliss, 15 May 2012

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Rapture (Paperback)
When I was first falling in love, we did this book at my bookclub. A friend lent me her copy - hardback, red, with a red ribbon to mark the pages. A beautiful book, a perfect present for any woman who loves words.

Anyway, as I said, I was falling in love and I stayed up all night, reading aloud to myself and crying. It was pure bliss!

Of course, at bookclub I drove them all mad, waxing lyrical about the book, reading whole poems aloud...
They indulged me, of course, partly because I was a woman in the first throes of love but mainly because they all loved Rapture too.

Three years later, I still read and sometimes weep, to River:

'Down by the river, under the trees, love waits for me
to walk from the journeying years of my time and arrive...'

'...and I feel love come to my arms and cover my mouth, feel
my soul swoop and ease itself into my skin, like a bird
threading a river. Then I can look love full in the face, see
who you are I have come this far to find, the love of my life.'

I love this review.It`s description of the physical beauty of the book in it`s self made me want to own it or give a copy as a gift.I can also relate to the moments in life when we find a book so enchanting,that we fight sleep in order to carry on digesting it`s words in our minds.I also like the reviewers humour and honesty in her self awareness,that her fellow bookclub members appreciated that the subject of finding and falling in love was in the forefront of her mind ,and that she was and still is so passionate about the book three years later.
