Some lessons learnt
Wild Weather

New Book

Just when I thought that there were no books around where the writter used words beautifully and I had the feeling that  the stories I was reading all seemed the same, I was given a book by my sister that has just blown me away.  Day's Without End is a story about the wild west in North America.

This is my first book by Sebastian Barry.  I have looked up all his other books and intend to try and read every other one. These are the ones I want to start with.

But I know there are more.  Including some movies. I think these will keep me busy for most of 2022.

There are still writers who write beautifully, but they are hard to find. It's always pleasing when you find one who is also prolific!

Yes, I thought I would never find another.
