Place in the Woods based on 0 ratings. 4 reviews.
I read this years ago, and lost my copy after lending it to a friend. I've been looking for another copy for years and was SO glad to find this here. I'm looking forward to reading this again when I finish the book I'm reading now.
I read this book years ago, and fell in love with the views of leaving the city and moving to northern Minnesota. Helen's description of the animals and people she encounters are at times fun, at others scary, but most of all captivating. I was happy to see the ebook version available now, and I am happy to return to the adventures she describes with her husband.
Helen Hoover in a very beautiful and simplistic way allows the reader to come along with her, and her husband adrian as they establish their new life in the woods. We share in their joy of discovery, their interactions with the animals they share the woods with, and the hardships they encounter along the way. This is a true story which lifts the spirit and warms the heart of all who are lucky enough to read this book.
