Dear Friends and Readers,
I am delighted to have published a response to this captivating novel in which I’ve recently been deliciously immersed. The author, Maggie O’Farrell, transported me into a captivating world far from our time and place (Elizabethan England) yet reflecting so much that matters here and now, inwardly and out. The novel I read and loved is called Hamnet. For anyone who enjoys historical fiction, please, don’t miss this book. I won’t say anymore so that you will, I hope, read about it in my review on Christine Christman’s website, Goodwords Inc.
Christine’s website provides a rich and bountiful resource for readers. Take a wander around it at your readerly leisure: https://www.goodwordsinc.net/
The book reviews give you more than a good summary and taste of what the books are about. To focus my review, she asked me to respond to the following questions:
- What did I learn about myself?
- What did I learn about my world?
- What new possibilities did this book help me imagine?
Attempting to respond to these points gave me an opportunity to reflect more deeply about the book than I otherwise would have. I hope you enjoy the review enough that it makes you want to read the book. It would be a great book club book.
Wishing all and each of you well and staying relatively sane in these challenging times.
Posted with love,
