    A Life Changing Read

    Sue Hubble's reflections are smooth and creamy like fresh country butter. It's a book all people who are caught in the busy hubbub of life, and wondering how they got there, should read. She has proven that when life throws you a momentous change, such as being middle-aged and newly divorced, it holds such sweet suprises that you never dreamed could be. It is pure, beautiful and the essence of life's truths. A woman who truly stopped to notice the chaos of the natural world around her, rather than the concrete and metal one, with a quiet and thoughtful eye. I hope we can all live such a beautiful tale before we turn the last pages of our own lives. BRAVO BRAVO BRAVO! Her story is so beautiful that I myself have decided to cash in the corporate robe for that of a simple country shawl. The only shame is that stores are shelving this book in the 'nature journal' section where fewer people might run across it.

    Simple Elegance

    From the opening of the quote by Rilke and all the way through the book I was captivated. I live very near the area from which Ms. Hubbell wites her words of plantive beauty. She captures the very essence of life in this remote and rural arena of life. At times I laughed and at times I cried, but in each delicate moment I found myself captivated by her lyric style of writing. A MUST READ, for anyone who wants to experience a simplier life. Read a few chapters then relax, close your eyes and listen to the breeze, the bees and the birds. You only have to let yourself go to do it.
