:: WINTER LOVE ::
Embracing winter is an easy feat for the first month. Being cold isn't as annoying, the gloom is welcome and altering food is delightful. Who doesn't love a warming bowl of soup? After a month, the lack of light and wanting to stay in result in cabin fever. Ways we have found to get over this test to our mental state is to find winter loves that bring mental sunshine when physical sunshine isn't reliable. Reading is one of those consistent joy-bringing activities we slow down for in the winter season. This book was knock-my-socks off delightful, the lyrical rhythm and complexity written into each character in the family of 8 is impressive. Hats off to David James Duncan - highly valued this novel.
