Stellar Surprises

One of the amazing things,

right up there on a favorite list

is when a young person shares a favorite book with me.

Not long ago a grade school girl brought a book

to share with me.

To read (out loud) to me.

Now, that in itself is delightful,

the surprise was the era


this fictional child was writing a letter

to help keep her brother home

helping the family

instead of serving in the

Vietnam War.


I now have my own copy

and I can tell you

without ruining the story

it's about that era

and family

and so much more.

Here is today's recommend:

"Until Tomorrow,

Mr. Marsworth"


Sheila O'Connor

A good book for 11 year olds

and others who enjoy stellar surprises
