What I Learned - Ways of the Doomed by Moira McPartlin (The Sun Song Trilogy)
This beauty of a book is part one of the Sun Song Trilogy, and it is amazing! I have since read book two and cannot wait to get my hands on book three. Set in the potential Scotland of our future, it really strikes a chord and resonates, especially given all the environmental and leadership issues our world is facing as we speak. It's easy to see how carrying on on the path we are travelling at the moment could bring us here.
The cast of characters is gorgeous, and completely believable. This series of books will stay with me for a long time after I finish them.
What I learned:
Memories are one thing no one can take from you - they are yours, no matter what happens and who tries to make you miserable.
Don't stand on the side-lines. Get stuck in and do whatever you can, no matter how small, to help the people who need it.
Individual thought will take you anywhere and everywhere you want to go in life. Where you've come from doesn't matter, and you shouldn't ever feel restricted by it. Your thoughts and your "you-ness" are all you need in life. Embrace them.
I have now read this passage about 4 times, and my stomach rumbles and mouth waters every single time. I think this could be the best food description I have ever read in any novel.
