“April showers bring may flowers.” “What do Mayflowers bring?” “Pilgrims.” Sigh…I can remember that but can’t remember how to figure a tip in a restaurant (or other important things). It’s raining here–flash flooding even. Of course. It’s April in the Ohio River Valley. Here are a two great April-ish titles for your pleasure.
Across Five Aprils
When the Civil War begins, Jethro is helping on the family farm in Southern Illinois. Like some young people today, Jethro takes a stand and speaks up. It is not about anything predictable, but it is a truly important cause. Across Five Aprils by Irene Hunt.
Come Rain, Come Shine
If this title doesn’t evoke April, I don’t know what does! This week it snowed, then if poured rain, it’s supposed to then be in the 70s and then more snow! “Rain or shine” is a common addendum to invitations to outdoor events in my neck of the woods. Come Rain, Come Shine by Jan Karon.
How about you? Any good April-ish books on your shelves or to-read list? Why not share them in a comment?
