This morning I asked my husband for help digging out this huge hosta plant
before he went to work.
My plan was to move this comfortable chair into its space.
After dividing the large plant into five small ones,
I spent some time transplanting them and pulling some weeds.
Then, refreshed by a shower, I took The Peasant Girl's Dream outside with me,
sat down to try out my new reading spot,
and finished it! It's the first George MacDonald book I've read,
and I'm ready for the second one - The Lady's Confession.
Lines such as these stood out to me:
- "The land was not pretty unless you knew where to look for its beauty. Neither was it friendly unless you lived upon it long enough to make it a friend."
- "The poverty of the room was the respectable poverty of age."
- "Her soul was bathed in its own content..."
- "Had her bliss changed suddenly to sadness, Kirsty would have been quiet still. Whatever came to Kirsty seemed right, for there it was."
I'm really thankful my friend Joan recommended the books
and lent me these two, suggesting they would be a good place to start.
What are YOU reading currently?
Have you tried any George MacDonald books?
