Last week’s quote was from The Birds’ Christmas Carol by Kate Douglas Wiggin, Chapter 2: “Drooping Wings”.
Wonderful, wonderful book (if you don’t mind bittersweet endings that make you cry). Brownie-points for Mama for being the only one to correctly guess this book! And now this week we have one of my favorite quotes from one of my favorite books. Can’t you just see this gorgeous scene in your head?
It was rather a pretty little picture, for the sisters sat together in the shady nook, with sun and shadow flickering over them, the aromatic wind lifting their hair and cooling their hot cheeks, and all the little wood people going on with their affairs as if these were no strangers but old friends.
Beautiful, isn’t that? Happy guessing!
