I bought this novel as a possible literature circle novel for my classroom (I had never heard of it, but they were selling a box of them for $5 at the book sale). It was definitely an interesting read and a work of its time. Strangely enough it has a hopeful message and for a post-apocalypse story there isn‘t as much gloom as you would think. Putting this as my “Written before I was born” book for #bbrc #growup #1959

This memoir is an ode to Lee‘s childhood in a remote Cotswold village. It is also an ode to that way of life, which had been ongoing for centuries, and began to rapidly change when he was about 12. No longer remote, no longer insulated, busses and cars made it easier for people to come in—and to leave. Very sweet, I think my mom would like this a lot. 191/1305 #1001books #192019 #1959
