Gethsemane More than 1 year ago
At eight years of age, young Emily Harris' outlook on life is optimistic. A little precocious and quite bright, she's also the victim of Leukemia. This small fact, however, is one she refuses to allow to hamper her happiness. She's determined in making the most of what little life she has left, diving head-first into the world that surrounds her. Emily's favorite past-time, once it's available, of course, is the Shindig on the Green. She lives for the moment when she can walk along the area, examining each venue offered and listening to the music that always surrounds her. In her mind, life doesn't get any better than that. It's those little moments that allow her to make the most of the uncertainty that's become her life. When an unexpected opportunity lands in Emily's lap, she decides to go with it. She has a chance of sharing her world with others in a way she never thought possible. Granted, her parents aren't happy about the sudden changes, but they'll do anything to make sure she's content, nonetheless. Utilizing a myriad of sand timers she comes across, Emily is able to put her world, and that of her loved one, into a better perspective. In her mind, the sand timers allow her to traverse to a plane that lets her leave behind the pain and heartache she experiences because of the illness that consumes her. As her dreams take flight, she soon realizes that life has other plans for her and those around her. Come what may, she'll do everything to make sure her hopes and dreams are carried out no matter what happens in the long run. A delightful, yet bittersweet story, Hour Measure opens up your mind to what it's like for such a young soul to live with Leukemia. Emily is bright and energetic, never letting go of her ideals. She's smart and funny, and definitely older than her years depict. I found her to be quite enthusiastic in the face of such adversity. The way she delivers her philosophy of life whenever the moment suits her cements the fact that she sees the world through a different set of eyes. Mark has created such a beautiful character within Emily that it's hard not to feel love and compassion once you dive into her world. Utilizing several poems written by his brother, Ron Roemmich, Mark has given us a story that tugs on your heartstrings and leaves you wanting to read more about Emily and those she loves. This is a story you'll definitely read over and over again. I know I will! Mark is an author to keep an eye on. I look forward to more of what's to come for him.
