Today's selection should be coming from People of the Book by Geraldine Brooks, but when I arrived at page 258, the next page was #195 and then it repeated to page 258 and skipped pages 259-322. Oh. So. Frustrating. So until I find a replacement, today's selection comes from O Pioneers! by Willa Cather, page 202:
And yet, down under the frozen crusts, at the roots of the trees, the secret of life was still safe, warm as the blood in one's heart; and the spring would come again! Oh, it would come again!(That is especially for those of you who have yet to see a crocus or a daffodil!)
It's Tuesday, Where Are You? is hosted by an adventure in reading.
I'm on the plains of Nebraska in the early part of the 20th century.
