To all my #LitsyLove friends- Sept. & Oct. turned out to be challenging months for me and I'm so sorry to not have responded to letters & very thoughtful packages. I have had to make some changes to my life and am learning to adapt. I'm working on sending responses soon. This is such a great group and I'm grateful for the friendships I've made. 💜 The pic is of a goat resident at the Farm Sanctuary I started volunteering at. Have a great week! 💗

This is probably the best book I have read in 2019. It is an excellent book. I immediately liked Elwood, but reading about his experiences at the Nickel Academy was sometimes difficult to read. I found myself taking a break from the book during the week because I found parts of this story angering and heartbreaking. If there is one book I would recommend it is definitely this one.

Leftcoastzen It is so good and so hard...I am about halfway through and I am already thinking it‘s the best book I have read this year. 3mo

I was absorbed in this book since picking it up. I would describe it as a ghost story that inspired Bram Stoker to write "Dracula." If you enjoyed "Dracula" or ghost stories I would recommend this book. “There are mysteries which men can only guess at, which age by age they may solve only in part.” ~Bram Stoker's Dracula

I learned so much from this book. I grew up watching "The Wizard of Oz" frequently as a child. I could not put this book down. I knew nothing about Maud Baum or the life L. Frank Baum. I loved reading about how strong Maud was and how she viewed the filming of the movie "The Wizard of Oz." I highly recommend this book.
