#grateful for a 5 ⭐️ listen. This is my favorite kind of book, lit tinged in magic. The story was dark at times but well told. The accents were perfection for the story and the verbiage. It was so much, I feel like I may have a book hangover and need to revisit some high points. @Eggs

1. I think I have enjoyed both but post-apocalyptic wins by a thread.

I‘m #grateful those girls have a sense of humor with their ole mom.❤️ please join the practice and spread joy!

Tin Camp Road: A Novel | Ellen Airgood
post image
Pickpick

“Happiness was a net - that was it. You had to build a life that happiness would snag in. When it did, you took it up and used it…then you put down the net again. Nothing guaranteed you‘d haul it up full every time. You wouldn‘t. But sometimes happiness would catch, and you‘d have what you needed, a least for a while.” This quote summarizes the book for me. Laurel struggled but kept laying her net. And was a nice reminder of our UP trip.
