my take: first off, i read this in costa rica, so understand that in the happiest place on earth, everything is wonderful. secondly, i was reading Barbara Brown Taylor’s An Altar in the World concurrently, so my immediate frame of reference was the spirituality of earthly things, which made the book a certain kind of meaningful that i wouldn’t have picked up on during beach reading. the writing is easy and casual, by a midwest girl with midwestern sensibilities. there’s lots about marriage, animal welfare, and blessings. and worth a read.

my source: 12 books for 12 days (recommended by Anne)

recommend: animal lovers, beach read

rating: great feel good read
