I have been savoring this book for some time.
I can pick it up and fall back into it right away even after a long period where I have been reading other books.  I love the way this author writes.
If you like in-depth characterization, setting descriptions that give you an almost photo image, historical fiction, good narration,
you may enjoy this author and this book.

This is the book I took with me to read ...

(5) ... one day last week when I spent the day in the town of
White River Junction, Vermont
Picture credit to their website. I forgot my camera.
I had to wait for my husband at one point, so I  had a coffee at the Tuckerbox, a local coffee shop with big old wooden tables and comfy chairs and interesting people.
Then I wandered into the White River Yarns shop.
One of the most extensive collection of beautiful yarns that I have ever seen. Also, a very friendly shop.  I bought some yarn and a crochet hook but I needed a pattern.  I found one in their lending library and spent the an hour or two sitting on one of the benches in front of their flowerboxes outside their door. The young woman in the shop told me I could take the pattern with me and would not accept payment for it, even though she knew I was just visiting and might not be back anytime soon to return it to their shelves.  As it was raining off and on, I also enjoyed the shelter of their awning, the green one visible on the left in the above photo.

A very welcoming small New England town.

I am linking up today with the interesting bloggers at

  1. Oh I love your Kitty's and a New England town sounds very interesting to me. B

  2. That town sounds lovely and I like your stamp quilt :)

  3. Thanks for sharing your little stamp quilt. Love it. :)

  4. Katniss and Butterfly are so adorable! But of course, you know that. :)

    White River Junction is a lovely little town, but i haven't been there in years. I grew up in Maine, but went to college in Burlington, Vermont, so spent some time in White River. Beautiful place.

  5. It seems Katniss and Butterfly are resting comfortably - nothing worse than cranky kitties! Mine never seem to stay asleep for photographs - I just get the evil eye!


Thanks for stopping by and leaving a kind word! :-)
