This time around I am reading a delightful account of a Maine farm in 1948. The author uses a lot of descriptive detail and focuses on the simple goings-on at his farm. What comes across memorably is the image-full context of Nature as seasons change. I am thoroughly enjoying this immersive portrait of Nature and its relationship with this New England couple’s lifestyle. The book is bringing back many memories of winter for this prairie boy’s Inner Child.
