Due Back...

Literature adds to reality, it does not simply describe it. It enriches the necessary competencies that daily life requires and provides; and in this respect, it irrigates the deserts that our lives have already become. -C.S Lewis

Here If You Need Me by Kate Braestrup. This is a memoir of a widow who followed her late husbands dream to become a chaplain. It was okay. Her theology is quite different than mine, but her job is admirable.

To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee. I can cross another classic off my list.

Young Pioneers by Rose Wilder Lane. This was written by Laura Ingalls Wilder's daughter Rose. It's a good little story.

Remember Me by Sophie Kinsella. Once again, she had me laughing out loud.

Foreign Body by Robin Cook. Eh. I generally really like his books, but this one fell a little short to me. They can't all be great I guess.

Dana's Valley by Janette Oke and Laurel Oke Logan. I hadn't read Janette Oke is so long! This was okay, not really anything new though. It felt like a story i've read many times already.

Johnny Tremain by Ester Forbes. This is a Newberry Award winner. I'm trying to work my way through that list too, and I haven't been disapointed by one yet. I liked this story. I especially like how it illustrates the fact that all American's during the revolution we're not patriots and things are not always so cut and dried as history books sometimes make them.
