A lovely short diversion from my busy life.
on 22 September 2015
I love nature and having missed out on this novella book and the rock/orchestral music album of the same name by Camel I decided to catch up. It made my morning a special one.
I played the beautiful music with it's haunting melodies while reading the book and it brought a tear to my eye. I thought the short story was nicely written by Paul Gallico and emotionally challenging and the lovely illustrations by Angela Barret were a major part of this beauty, bringing the scenery and characters to life in a very imaginative way.
The unconventional love between the two people in the story was deeply moving to me and something I could relate to. I am not a book reader but reading this short book reminded me there is much to be gained by re-introducing this pastime into my busy life.
