I can’t believe it’s taken so long for me to find this book. It really has made a huge difference to how I relate to both myself and others. I borrowed it from the library, but am buying my own copy, as my style is to read these kind of books over and over. Weird I know. If you want to make peace with yourself and the world around you, this is the book for you. Yes, it talks about manifesting all that you desire, but first it talks about your true essence and how you have been tripping yourself up all this time. Literally, the world becomes a better place once you have read it.
Flora and I have been transported to a tiny village in Switzerland, where Annette and her little brother Dani live with their father and grandmother. In this Christian story, Annette is filled with hate and revenge when a terrible accident leaves her brothers leg damaged beyond repair. It gave us the opportunity to talk about revenge, hate, love, fear, death, pain, friendship, and cows with cow bells. it is a deep story, but lots of action and snow filled scenes really held Flora’s interest.
Ivy – age 15
Ivy is up to “Anne of Windy Poplars” and really loving the series.
She also has this book on the go. Another by Patricia St John
April – Age 17
April is enjoying a break from her uni studies and getting into some novels.
Kindle version of this one is a bargain
A novel of activism and natural-world power presents interlocking fables about nine remarkable strangers who are summoned in different ways by trees for an ultimate, brutal stand to save the continent’s few remaining acres of virgin forest. April is loving it.
Never without an Agatha Christie Novel, April recommends this one currently.
Maurice – age 12
Maurice has been grabbing the Horrible Histories books off the shelf again lately. He finds them a good jumping off point for exploring various periods and enjoys the humorous approach. Titles like ‘Woeful Second World War’ and ‘Rotten Romans’ give you an idea of how the topics are handled.
