The Rain Tree by Mirabel Osler,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Rain Tree (Hardcover)
This is a very special book by clearly, a very special woman. Mirabel Osler has lived in many countries around the world from Greece under the junta to Thailand where she adopted a baby daughter. She has written with humour, affection and tenderness, I came to know and love her family who seemed to adjust to the different worlds they moved in with grace. This writing is a delight in a world where now all is about punchiness and speed. Her world is one where letters were still written, posted and delivered within a day. Letters of love and passion. Everyone I am sure will love this look into a fascinating life. A perfect gift, but buy a copy for yourself at the same time!
