Move over Anne Tyler and Michelle Richmond

Major Pettigrew's Last Stand by Helen Simonson.

Last night I just finished this book, and all I can say is Move Over Anne Tyler and Michelle Richmond, there's a "new kid on the block" who has a real gift for storytelling. The images just walk off the page, and into your heart, mind and soul.

This book should be considered for many awards, but since it is her first book, Helen will be overlooked like so many other first time authors....

Bald Eagle on the Grand River (Explored!)

What a fantastic sight to see. Is there a better bird to watch? Maybe, but the heart soars along with this magnificent bird.
