Angels Crest

I am enjoying shoveling the deck, feeding the birds, and reading and writing. I read a marvellous book the other day. Angels Crest, a mystery, as well as a reflection on life.

I have been reading this book all day. What a masterful work, others agree! The
characters I want to embrace. --I can't say that about my last book! But it helps to while away the hours.

Angels Crest by Leslie Schwartz -

The author tells me the movie rights have been sold, but I cannot imagine that the movie could create as spectacular a story that the reader can create with her imagery.
Each chapter is like a painting in a wonderful art show. A beautiful gallery that has helped me pass the time today and ended up moving my spirit. At my age, wrestling with the next stage in my life, I seek solace in books and new ideas, as well as biographies that help me see a purpose in my life.

This book deals with small town, many of us can identify with this!
This type of story, Angels Crest, provides us lessons in life and love along a similar theme. I heartily recommend it!

I agree with your comment about the movie and ones own imagination - if ever I read a book and then see a film, it always destroys it for me. Moby Dick and Billy Budd spring to mind - also The Grapes of Wrath and more recently Brideshead Revisited - in each case the book wins hands down.

Just adding you now. Have you read Crow Lake? A great mystery that takes place in small town Ontario.
