O, the Brave Music | Dorothy Evelyn Smith

The days flowed imperceptibly through the green , jewelled hours of June into the white-hot stillness of July; on through the smouldering purple noons and thunder-haunted nights of August into the quiet harbour of September‘s gold.
But for me , time stood still.

I‘ve never thought of September as a harbour .. but it makes sense to me. Loving this book #FurrowedMiddleBrowClub different from Plum & Penny .. so good too .. Thankyou for tip Leah

Cathythoughts Also this is my #WeeklyForecast @Cinfhen .... Happy Reading 😘 7mo
batsy Gorgeous quote 💜 Hope you enjoy! It sounds like a summer book... I will have to make time for this soon 🙂 7mo
Cathythoughts @batsy Thanks! oh it‘s so good ! The quote is a bit over the top , but I love it & I love the idea of September as a harbour. I‘m on Chapter 4 ... there may well be more seasons yet 👍🏻❤️ 7mo

I‘ve just started this wonderful ‘coming of age‘ novel (that‘s been compared to I Capture the Castle) and I‘m already loving it.

And good news for those of you collecting the #BritishLibraryWomenWriters series ... it‘s being republished by them this autumn!

Thanks again for another great recommendation, @rubyslippersreads ! 😘

MsMelissa I really have to start reading some of these oldies. They seem right up my alley! 1y
rubyslippersreads I‘m so glad you ❤️ it! 1y
LeahBergen @Book_Fiend_Melissa I think you‘d love some of them. They‘re very soothing, in an old black and white movie sort of way. 😆 1y

LeahBergen @rubyslippersreads And it‘s just getting better and better as I read! Have you read any of her other novels? I also have this one waiting on my shelves 1y
Tanisha_A Looks like i have it stacked. I must have done it because of your earlier posts. 😁 1y
Cathythoughts Sounds good. And I agree old movies are very soothing indeed 💕💕💕 1y
Saknicole I‘m sold by the comparison novel! I love I Capture the Castle. Funny the authors have the same name too apart from middle! 1y
batsy I saw that they were republishing it and put it on my wishlist after @rubyslippersreads mentioned it 😁 Love your edition 😍 1y
LeahBergen @Tanisha_A It was SO good! 1y
LeahBergen @Cathythoughts Aren‘t they, though? 1y
LeahBergen @Saknicole I didn‘t even notice that (about the authors names)! I didn‘t find that it had the kookiness of I Capture the Castle but it was still completely delightful in its own way. 1y
LeahBergen @batsy It was completely lovely and I think you‘ll like it. ❤️ 1y
Reviewsbylola You‘ve got me wanting to buy the earlier releases. Excited to see the new ones! 1y
LeahBergen @Reviewsbylola And they‘re so damn PRETTY. 😆 1y
