Currently Reading: Welcome Joy: Death in Puritan New England by Gordon Geddes
Six months ago.....
We were driving through Ireland for the first time.
Walking its fields.
Listening to the sea.
Finding where I belong.
Every day, my heart longs to return. I can't wait for the day when we do.
In the meantime, I escape back to Ireland through my books. I just finished the last Sevenwaters book, which was mesmerizing and exciting and a wonderful homecoming for me. And I have some good "Ireland books" planned for the coming months: Tales of the Elders of Ireland, Early Irish Myths and Sagas, Corrag, I Am of Irlaunde, Over Nine Waves: A Book of Irish Legends, 1916: A Novel of the Irish Rebellion, and The Red-Haired Girl from the Bog.
These books will be my plane tickets... their words my windows. I will return.
