“My only wish is that we leave room for hope. There is good and bad in all things. We find what we expect to find. We see what we expect to see. I have learned that if I tilt my head just right and squint, the world outside is beautiful. The future is bright. There are good things to come.” -- Hugh Howey, Dust

In the Sanctuary of Outcasts/Neil White and Miracle at Carville/Betty Martin. Visited the National Hansen's Disease Museum along the Mississippi River in Carville, Louisiana today. Now I am eager to learn even more w/these two books for starters. The museum has such a story to tell...of the men and women who lived there with a diagnosis of leprosy and of the men and women who supported them.

Amazon is giving away Wuthering Heights.

I suppose it is free on other ebook sites.

Anyway, I read it about 40 years ago and want to try it again.

Just started THE MOONFLOWER VINE by Jetta Carleton.
The cover remarks that it is 'A Rediscovered Classic' and compare it with 'To Kill a Mockingbird'...enjoying it so far. It definitely has a Southern feel to it.

It is about grown sisters returning to the family farm on a summer visit and reveals some of their experiences growing up there.

"Pray with hope that we use the day ahead as a most precious gift of time"
