I love watching "Life Is Worth Living" on EWTN.
I wonder about the first person, who was, I assume, perhaps erroneously, a young girl, who read this particular copy. Where did she live? What else was going on in her life? What games did she play? What were her friends like? Did she enjoy school, or was school a struggle for her? Did she have a yard or a garden with a lilac bush, and actually read this book under the lilacs? Or did she sigh wistfully, and wish she knew how lilacs smell?
I chose this post, originally published on August 9th, 2012, because I've been reading
"Under the Lilacs" again. (Not, unfortunately,
the copy pictured; that was another book lost
when I moved.)
