Corner {emotions} View


This week's corner view is "emotions" and so I'd like to share with you
a book that evoked much emotion in me as I read it.

**


It's a love story.
The love of man and wife.
Of mother and child.  Of father and child. Of family.
And the love of another woman ... but not like you might think.

It had me hooked from the minute I started reading until the final words were finished.

One of my favorite bits was this illustration of how to have balance in your life ...




It's a nice book.

Beautifully written.

It's sad.

But also happy.

I'd recommend you read it.

Don't take it on a weekend away though, this book took only an hour or two to read !

i haven't read it--though i know just how popular it is. one of my favorite things about reading novels is the way they take you into a completely different world and, yes, draw out your emotions.

hope your week is beautiful!

What a great illustration! I love the five balls. I'll go put this on my goodreads to read list.

I miss having time to read. My kids are really into reading stories. Stories enrich our lives, no matter the message, they give us something to think about.

A lot of the teens at school read a series by James Patterson--I presume it's the same one. I've not gotten into them, but this sounds like something I would really enjoy. The lesson about the five balls is excellent. I might be able to use that in a lesson plan.
Great choice for an emotion post.:>)
