Feel free to grab the banner and play along!
My selection comes from the book Thrush Green by Miss Read. I have been visiting Nan's blog Letters From a Hill Farm for a while now and I just love her conversational style of book reviews. She often reads books that sound enchanting and after her Sunday post about the passing of this author I just knew I had to read at least one book by Miss Read. I have a feeling though that I will be back for more!
Here's a snippet from Nan's book review:
The very name of this book is magic. I think the song of the thrush is just about the sweetest sound in the world. You may hear it at this site. And green makes us think of the greening of the year, rebirth, as well as a village green. Perfect, just perfect.
As soon as he opened his eyes the child remembered, and his heart soared. This was the day he had waited for so long--the day of the fair.
Would you continue reading this one
based on the opening paragraph?
