I just read a book that I want to recommend very highly. Usually, I take an exception to foul language, unbelievable characters or a message that is not my own.
None of those apply with Crow Lake.
The reverence for a rural life, the comfort that can be found when one embraces a love of learning, and the possibilities for triumph over tragedy, are poignantly clear in this story. It also taught me that strength and success can take many shapes and come from unlikely places. Mary Lawson‘s description of the emotional effect of tragedy upon children was outstanding. Her story, about the unfairness of circumstance, a reminder to us all that good people can make all the difference.
If you are in awe of Nature…this book is also “right up your alley”.
This poster sums up the book better than I.

Could not be a truer statement. I’m reading a series right now but when I’m done I may just have to get that book a try…:)

If I get a chance to read it I’ll let you know…….:)
