Roaring Brook Press, October 2016. Hardcover | Kindle | 320 pages
I actually just finished this, but I really felt like sharing it because of how gorgeous the writing is
"Once upon a time, beyond the sunrise, halfway to the moon, and so very far away it would make your feet weep to think about it, lies a land vast in size. From where we sit, on the far edge of history, we can see across Time itself, and yet this land is so big we struggle to see all of it at once.
Nevertheless, here it is: Here's a river as wide as a sea, and into it flows a stream as wide as a river. In summer salmon leap through the cool fresh water, in winter the ice is as thick as a house is tall."
What do you think? Would you keep reading? (And feel free to join in and make your own post!)
