Reading still......



"There was a most delectable lunch; sandwiches of delicate and unknown condiments, salad as bewildering, soup that had been kept hot in a thermos bottle, served in tiny white cups, iced tea and ice-cream meringues from another thermos compartment, and plenty of delicious little cakes, olives, nuts, bonbons, and fruit.

It seemed a wonderful supper to them all, eaten out there under the trees, with the birds beginning their vesper songs and the stars peeping out slyly.

Then they packed up their dishes and hurried on their beautiful way, a silver thread of a moon coming out to make the scene more lovely."

  4. I haven't read this one yet, but I have several other GLH stories that I love. I find them so encouraging towards being the kind of woman I wish to be.
