Good One!

Finally finished (hence the lack of photographs lately) and yes, it was a good one! I hadn’t read the jacket for a while and had forgotten that the author of the last favorite book I read, John Connolly writer of The Book of Lost Things, did a review… “A beautifully crafted adult fairy tale of love, loss, and loyalty that is at once witty, magical, and moving. Of Bees and Mist is a stunningly accomplished first novel.” Funny, those were my thoughts of The Book of Lost Things, minus the first novel part of course.

When finished I went back to a bookmarked page, a reminder of something that touched me.  It was… “Papa’s telling me of beauty.  Boundless, heavenly beauty.  Immortal forest at dusk… eternal river… enchanted land where souls drift like fireflies… He said the air is pure there because there’s no rage, no shame, no guilt.”

Some reviews are comparing it to Keith Donohue’s The Stolen Child. *adds to long list*
