I found Sunset, in which she ensures a trio of beautiful moths with singed wings meet a dignified end particularly poignant; while Letting Go, her reflections on her beloved, aging dog, Kesteral, had me unashamedly in tears. And only Tara Fox Hall can make the stacking of firewood into such a delightful subject as in Keeping it Straight.
This collection of writings will draw you into the author's special world, lift your spirits and leave you feeling deeply satisfied. She writes with wit, perception and immense sensitivity. Each short essay can be read and savoured in isolation, to raise flagging spirits during short breaks from the mundane routine, or read as I did, in a couple of sittings, because I simply could not tear myself away from Tara Fox Hall's captivating world. Highly recommended, as my five cute kitties prove.
