Don't judge a book before you read it

You should never give a bad review if you haven't read the book. There have been many books I have read that I was actually very surprised that I loved them after I gave them a chance. Not very nice to judge something if you haven't given it a chance yourself. Just for ...

    Short Story

    A lovely short story at Christmastime. Brings to life a time when life was less complicated.

    Highly recommended - what a great story for the holidays or anytime actually - great read-out-loud for a family! Also not too long that anyone will get bored...

    Loved this author - am ashamed that I did not know of him before! Great storyteller and to realize at the end that this was his own memory of going to his grandparents for Christmas, made it even better. Definitely will look up more of his writings and poems! Loved a little history, the train stops to N.H. and the way things were a few short years ago.

    Thank you, Donald Hall, for a lovely Christmas present!

    Donald Hall writes with an unerring sense of time and place. I first met Wesley and Kate Wells in "Kicking the Leaves". Through the eyes of Hall, their grandson, we see a picture of the good life: happy and useful, full of love for their family, where meaning accumulates in the repitition of humble tasks. I long to visit their Mt. Kearsarge, but that time has long past, and only a writer as gifted as Hall can bring it back to life.
