A Quote Off My Shelf

These are more and longer quotes than I typically post but they were too beautiful to abbreviate or reduce. A.S. Peterson's concluding sequel met and exceeded all of my expectations. The book will shatter your soul then gently, tenderly mend it together again.  The motif of music is strong throughout the book and captures best … Continue reading A Quote Off My Shelf

Rereading a Childhood Favorite

When I Just Can’t

(No spoilers) I finished it. The last book in The Wingfeather Sagas series by Andrew Peterson. It--and the whole series--deserves a proper, lengthy, analysis of its rich themes and insights. But I can't do it. Not yet. Maybe never. It's been humorously said that books you like are easy to discuss sensibly but that books … Continue reading When I Just Can’t
