What I Learned - The Happy Ending by David Stokes
Absolutely gorgeous book. Highly recommended. A must read.
What I Learned:
This was a wife's advice to a husband feeling old, exhausted and a bit fed up with life.
I think we would all do well to remember this. Never judge a book by it's cover as they say.
This made me smile. This is really true but I had never thought about it before. Kids today definitely no more about certain things than their parents these days, and could this be a reason some of the respect of old is gone?
Very true - who knows what will bring the next storm or with who it will arrive. I've learned you can never second guess it but you just have to go with it.
Brilliant! (although I hope it's not true with this website!)
Sometimes being on your own actually makes you a little bit more capable. You have to step up and do things you maybe wouldn't do if the situation were different (me becoming a washing machine engineer is what springs to mind!)
Two different ways to look at a situation - neither of them wrong!
My Goodreads Review:
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Absolutely gorgeous book - Highly recommended - A Must Read!
I fell in love with Harry from the first page, and despite the really serious nature of the topic, and the events he was ultimately, and unwittingly caught up in, I found myself smiling throughout this book, and trying to snatch any sort of time to read just to find out where events would take him.
The supporting cast are also fabulous...as we gradually meet lots of other members of his family, as well as "his girls", and with brilliantly written flashes into his past and all that entailed, everyone in this book are believable and loveable.
Read this now!
