It was a gift to learn about Dara‘s journey as a naturalist. His love of the natural world, teaching others and protecting the planet is profound. His willingness to share his challenges in this journey is impactful. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️+ out of 5

1. Hard choice. It would either be non-fiction history or science fiction. I'd only do this if I was guaranteed access to every book printed in that genre
2. Last half. Not having closure would drive me crazy 🤪

A very frank and passionate diary by Dara (fifteen years old at the point of writing and autistic). It documents the uprooting of his home and how he relates to nature and his increasing prominence as an environmental activist. His descriptions of his encounters with the nature around him were evocative and lyrical. The way that he talks about his autism was enlightening.

I didn't love this as much as the first book, but I still really liked it and I thought the ending was fitting, bittersweet as it is. Definitely for fans of Battle Royale and prefer their fairytale creatures bloodthirsty and crazy.

DGRachel That‘s an amazing cover though! 8mo

This story connect various characters to Lara‘s flower shop. She is dealing with grief and other situations and the shop is a tool for her healing as well as for the characters‘s life situations. I enjoyed the first part of this book but then it was like repetitive and I couldn‘t connect with their stories. For me was boring. But this book has good rating in GR. it didn‘t work for me😬3⭐️

I read it physically and in audio. Loved to listen the accent because is part of the region, culture, and identity. I think Eilis immigration in general was more manageable in comparison to other people, she had a job and persons that supported her. She even had some money when she left her country. But she questioned some of her decisions which would changed her life. There are some sad parts. Liked the story and author‘s writing style. 3.5/3.8⭐️

Gissy Loved the cover😍The bookmark was another gift from another friend when they visited Ireland after 2021 London marathon.

I am enjoying this author‘s writing. It was a sad story, almost a retelling but beautifully written. I love Agnes with her peculiar, odd, strange personality. She had this kind of sixth sense, instinct, almost magical intuition. It really worked for me. Thank you @SprainBrain for this lovely book ( #Staycationintime swap 2021) because I collect (not book hoarder😜) different editions of my favorite books, I need the UK edition too🙌 4.5⭐️

Gissy I love deckled pages😍The mug was a present from a friend last year. The group visited Ireland after London Marathon.
