ANTICIPATING –

18 Mar

I’ve had my eye on these two books for some time now, so when I just recently discovered an offering from Bloomsbury and Penguin, making it financially viable to purchase, I did. They should arrive any day now.

Originally published by Eyre & Spottiswoode 1940 – First Penguin soft cover edition 1950 Fantasy

“When Norman Huntley and his friend Henry invent an 83-year-old woman called Miss Hargreaves, they are inspired to post a letter to their new fictional friend. It is only meant to be a silly, harmless game – until Miss Hargreaves arrives on their doorstep, complete with her cockatoo, her harp and her bath.” Google books

“ “Miss Hargreaves–” I murmured. “Miss Hargreaves–?”
I leant over the rail and looked into the darkness of the Irish Sea. It was night. The lights of our boat were the only lights upon the black water. No answer came from the sea as I murmured that name. And yet, it seemed to me that very faintly in the December air, in the wind, I could hear the sighing of my own name. “Norman– Norman– Norman–” ”

Let’s Kill Uncle is a tale of two ordinary ten year olds who conspire to execute an extraordinary murder, and get away with it.

“Heir to a ten-million-dollar fortune, Barnaby tries to tell everyone and anyone that his uncle is after his inheritance, but no one will believe him. That is, until he tells the only other child on the island, Chrissie, who concludes that there is only one way for Barnaby to stop his demonic uncle: He will just have to kill him first. With the unexpected help of One-Ear, the aged cougar who has tormented the island for years, Chrissie and Barnaby hatch a foolproof plan.” Google Books

The Whisper of God

"Let us be silent, so that we may hear the whisper of God" Ralph Waldo Emerson ~~~ Several years ago, I started writing down all the amazing ways God used my day to day activities, children, family, friends and nature to teach me. The more I wrote, the more I noticed God in my daily life. It became an exercise of the heart and grew my relationship with Christ in a way I had never experienced. I began to hear God whisper to my heart His desires and lessons for me. I hope that reading some of my stories will encourage you stop and listen for His whisper!
