It This is another great story in a fantastic series. I only have 2 more to read and I almost hate to rink.
- Bernhard Schlink - Der Vorleser: Zusammenfassung und Analyse (German Edition).
- Everlast (Chronicles of Nerissette);
- Un príncipe en la nevera. Novela infantil ilustrada (6 - 10 años) (El mundo mágico de la nevera) (Spanish Edition).
I'm hoping the author will decide to write the stories of the children all brown up. This was an okay book. I had read another Brand book, so wanted to see more of the family.

I look out my window to see rolling, green, thickly forested hills, wildflower laden meadows and wide open blue, blue skies. My road is barely paved. The nearest neighboring place is a acre dairy farm. My house is a big, century old farmhouse. I moved in here after my divorce in This was the culmination of my Dark Night of the soul, which had seemed to hit me all at once in My mother died that year, after a 14 month battle with pancreatic cancer.
She was only Then came the divorce. I had lost almost everything before that point, and as I poked through the wet ashes and soot the next day, I realized that I had now been stripped all the way to the bone.

No better time to start over. Just sat on the side of the road as the deer bounded, uninjured and carefree, out of sight, and laughed. It was just too ridiculous at that point, to do anything else! There I was at the age of harrurmphemmph, living in my one, mostly undamaged remaining room, with a dorm-sized mini-fridge, a futon, a TV, my cat nine lives! And not much else.

We have a pair of English Mastiffs, Dozer and Daisy, who weigh pounds and pounds respectively, and a little pudgy English Bulldog named Niblet, who is bigger than both of them, inside her mind. And we've acquired a pair of stray cats as well, a mother and son, Luna Lulu for short and Butters aka Buddy. Lulu showed up pregnant during a lunar eclipse, had a litter, and vanished again. We found homes for all the kittens except one.
We got him fixed and kept him. A few months later, Lulu returned, again expecting. This litter was born on the "Monster Moon.
