At 4 A.M. I realized that something was wrong. Why had I not come to the realization earlier before I scrunched my pillow under my right ear with my body curved, ready for sleep? It is ironic that on the eve of my big writing course at the university that I would forget it. Deciding to take the day off from academic matters, I picked up my Kindle and read for the pure pleasure of it. Stretched out on the couch at camp with loons screeching in the background I began. The author weaves quite a tale that hooked me from the first page. Late into the night I read, until I realized that soon the alarm would sound. I read with a critical eye and ear. This writer has a command of words, but it is the development of characters that has me up early in the morning wondering about the fate of a village with a myriad of players that seem so real, I can't get them out of my head. I just hope I have a little time to read at break, during lunch, between frantic preparation of impending presentations. The sacrifice of one writer's pursuit (blogging) was worth the discovery of a gem. I highly recommend Snow Fence Road by Phyllis Edgerly Ring. Run to your local bookstore or order it through Amazon. Great read. I don't want it to end.
