It was far too cold to take Bonnie out for a walk on Monday, It kept trying to snow all day but never settled, the wind made it feel even colder. We had planned on going to a local National Trust property, most have lovely grounds to walk in, although at the moment none of the houses or cafe's are open. There was a smattering of snow yesterday morning and still very cold but the wind had dropped and the sun came out for a while. I only went on a local walk, to the church at the bottom of road, back up and around the outskirts of the estate. I like walking when the weather is like this, cold and crisp with a bit of Winter sunshine, in fact, I prefer walking in this kind of weather than in the Summer. I always think when it's cold, you can wrap up against it and get warm and cosy, whereas when it's hot there is no way to get away from it. That's my logic anyway :-)
Fearful of the future, when Elsa wakes to find her husband has fled, she is forced to make the most agonizing decision of her life. Fight for the land she loves or take her beloved children, Loreda and Ant, west to California in search of a better life. Will it be the land of milk and honey? Or will their experience challenge every ounce of strength they possess?
From the overriding love of a mother for her child, the value of female friendship and the ability to love again – against all odds, Elsa’s incredible journey is a story of survival, hope and what we do for the ones we love.
Who is he really? And what could make someone change their mind about the human race . . . ?
