I love the feel of a book in my hands, but even more, I love when I'm no longer aware that I'm reading and it's as if I have climbed between the covers of the book and am living there.
There are very few books that do that for me. Very, very few. Though I love a lot of books, and many of them I have read and reread often, it takes a special book for me to feel so connected.
When The Imposter arrived earlier this week I placed it on the stand beside my chair in the living room thinking I would read a few chapters after dinner and before bedtime.
Later that evening I settled in to read a few chapters. It wasn't long before I was no longer aware that I was sitting in my favorite chair. Instead I found myself in Stoney Ridge on a moss farm. Though there was heartache, and even bigger trouble brewing there was a certain calmness throughout. I really loved the faith portrayed in this book and how it became alive and real for the characters.
By the end of the book I felt refreshed, encouraged, and excited to be serving a wonderful God who cares for His children and gives peace even in the middle of the storm.
Disclaimer: I was not asked to review this book. I simply wanted to share with you all the latest great read I had, and hope you get to enjoy it too!

Sounds like a great book, thanks for the mini review.ReplyDelete
I have always enjoyed her books so I'm looking forward to reading this one too. Thanks for the review.ReplyDelete
I'm anxiously awaiting this book to arrive at my local library. I too, have the same experience whenever I read one of her books. Ms. Fisher is one of my favorite authors.ReplyDelete
The Squire "disappears" into books, too. Sometimes, when I ask him a question, it is as if I have awakened him from a sound sleep. "Huh? Whah?" One of our daughters got into a LOT of trouble because he totally messed up a message she had given him while he was reading. To this day - forty years later! - she always asks to speak to me before she is willing to leave him a message.ReplyDelete
