And here it is, another masterfully written travelogue of Mr. Bryson’s journey’s through the British countryside, more that two decades after his first book on the subject. Informative, intelligent, and wickedly funny, The Road to Little Dribbling is a delightfully educational stroll through the tasty bits Her Majesty’s Kingdom. (I cannot adequately express to you how proud I am of that last sentence.)
What a great read! This is the story of A.J. Fikry, the owner of Island Books, a quaint little bookstore on Alice Island who, after losing his wife, begins a downhill journey into self loathing and depression, only to be saved by a beautiful young lady with whom he has one important thing in common…books. I’m not going to fully admit this on the internet, but I may have cried a bit at the end.
More Things in Heaven and Earth is the first installment of the Watervalley series. Jeff paints a humerous, and wonderfully quaint picture of life in rural Tennessee. Add a little drama, and maybe the beginnings of a future romance, and you have a fantastic story that will leave you wanting more, which is great because the follow up book, Each Shining Hour, is now available!
