Sunday Letter

Good morning to my Sunday Letter faithful,

This past week was a strange one for me. I traveled to and from the farm, never seemed to know what day it was, and didn’t accomplish much. Do you ever have one of those weeks?

I’m still here to talk about it, so I guess that’s a good thing!

Also, my youngest turned 26 yesterday. Seriously, I feel like life is passing at warp speed. I mean, we are al...

Loved the first part of the book! The characters were rich and I won’t soon forget them. The second section of the story was strong too, a solid 4 rating from me. But the last section completely fell apart as characters became thin and the storyline ...more

I read this memoir cover-to-cover in one afternoon. The story is beautiful and heartbreaking with prose like poetry.

“Three Mississippi, Four Mississippi… Tucking Barbie underneath the throw pillow on my lap, I traced my finger over the red blooms that covered my library book. Abby, my little sister, lay dozing on the opposite end of the couch, sprawled flat on her back. She had a way of sleeping through anything—a loud television show, or even one of Momma and Daddy’s late-night arguments.”
Talya Tate Boerner, The Accidental Salvation of Gracie Lee

“spot on the couch, I listened to the nightly sounds of our house, as familiar as the hymns we sang every Sunday morning at Boon Chapel. The crack of the ice tray. The opening of the silverware drawer with its earsplitting creak. As Momma reheated Daddy’s supper, the smell of fried potatoes and salt pork filled the air. Abby and I had eaten hours ago. When Daddy worked extra late, Momma”

“In the morning light, I remembered how much I loved the sound of wind through the trees. I laid back and closed my eyes, and I was comforted by the sound of a million tiny leaves dancing on a summer morning.”
Patrick Carman, The Tenth City
