Wonderful
It is an amazing book that transforms you into the time and place that once was. A time my children will never know and that I had only a glimpse of. It is a book I will read again and again. And one that I will recommend over and over. Thank you for this gift.

A measure of empathy
Wendell Berry is an amazing writer. Hannah Colter is one of many novels set in a time period when life was more simple and difficult. The books are written by the different characters and follow their lives through the joys and pains that are our lives. While Hannah Colter comments on recounting 'giving thanks' I was struck by the sorrow and pain she suffered. I don't know if that's a greater reflection on me than it is on the character, but I would highly recommend this book to anyone with a soul!
