Star Gazing, by, Linda Gillard.
I loved this book. It has been such a long time since I have read anything worth recommending to you. But this one is way up there on my list of favorites. I think I may go buy a few copies just to hand out as gifts. It touches on all the subjects I love: trees, and nature; music and love. Seeing the world through the eyes of another person. It was spell-binding. So hard to put down. So sad its over. Can't wait to read anything else written by this well-versed lady. Kudos.
The Blue Castle, by, Lucy Maud Montgomery. I know this is a really old book. And the cover looks so corny you think you could plant it and get a crop out of it. But it is my all time favorite book. It reminds me so much of the other book I posted here, I just had to put them together. Ms. Montgomery had such a way with words. When she talks about nature I am right there rambling through the forests and meadows...if you've never read it, give it a read. You will be surprised... Love it.
Really, I am not much into love stories. I really shy away from the vivid descriptions. I just think its so tacky. That's why these two are so high up there on my list, I guess. Not for the love story. But the way the writers draw you in, and hold you spell-bound. With wonderful well thought out characters, surrounded by the beauty of nature. My soul can expand and breath deeply here.
