Nice pick, Lauri. My favorite part--when Elizabeth was talking to Ellwsorth about the note in the ceiling crack that said "Let light and life break through": "Yes, I know. Silly. But just tuck in into the back of your mind for the times when life seems, well, seems to be falling apart. That's the best time for . . . things to open up. For all kinds of unexpected things to make their way through. Not just bad ones. Good ones, too."
Here's what I liked about the book....I liked the feeling of home...how this family had this entire plot of land and homes to themselves with the "park" in the middle. Although it sounded nice, I don't think I could actually live that way in real life...my family drives me crazy. I also liked how the children ended up being the treasure. It was a cute story of the power of family and how we are all each other's greatest treasure.(Ahh...sniff...sniff....I must be hormonal.)
I knew I would like the book as soon as I saw the cover. I liked all the family history and how practically everyone in the family knew about their ancestors. I liked the feeling of home as well.Favorite Line from pg. 247:"Provenance, you know. We need provenance.""Yeah," said Ellsworth, "Okay. I don't know."So like a teenager.
My favorite quote is on page 34-"Who cared about the outside? It was inside that mattered. Because inside could be anything at all."When I finished the book I wanted to just sit quietly...maybe I am part Quaker.
I loved it! Easy read and great characters! I want to visit the Square!
Lauri's quote is my favorite too. If only I could remember that more often.
