Trade-size paperback: essays from Yankee Magazine.

Rescued from the freebie table at the Central Union Church thrift shop after I was told anything thing left on that table at closing time would get pitched.

Enjoyable vignettes about living in rural New Hampshire. The bit about trimming the cherry tree was quite an interesting image.

Released 5 yrs ago (3/28/2016 UTC) at Honolulu, Hawaii USA


Headed for Pennsylvania via media mail; I'll count this release for Secretariat's 2016 Never Judge a Book By Its Cover Challenge (week 13: 1st quarter re-do) and KarmelK's Celebrate the Irish challenge.

My oldest aunt passed away on 3/26/16 at the age of 85. Dad says when he was a kid, she would burn the rice because she was reading a book instead of paying attention to her cooking, so my releases for the rest of this month will be in her honor as well. RIP Aunty Doris.

Since Pakistan's flag is green and white, this book with a predominantly green cover is released for the victims of the recent bombing in Pakistan. I hope their families can eventually find peace.

Arrived in Pa! Looks interesting. Shelving with the TBRs for now. This will likely be a bedtime read.

rabck from hyphen8; lovely book of essays about life on "Mary's farm" - the farm that the author bought from Mary. Nice essays about her life in the different seasons on the farm.
This one will move along as a rabck

Thanks for the bonus book, NancyNova! This looks like it is right up my alley. Hope to get to it before too long!

Journal Entry 8 by wingReallyBookishwing at Horsham, Pennsylvania USA on Sunday, March 4, 2018
This was a delight! The short essays about life in rural New Hampshire are grouped by theme: "The Farm, " "The Gardens," "Friends," and "Transitions." Clark writes well and her thoughts are often poignant without being the least bit maudlin. Each brief piece stands on its own, so it was easy to dip in and out of the book.

I believe that Clark has written at least two other books, and I would be interested in reading more from her. Reading this also made me want to visit the part of New Hampshire in which the book is set (in any season but winter, that is!). Enjoyable read!

I hope the finder enjoys the book!
