My Reading Life: The Awakening of Miss Prim (Fenollera)

is a wonderful little book! It's cozy, it's idyllic, it is about things all of us care about:  books and learning, It's about faith but in a cryptic sort of way. We classical ed people will want to crawl in between those book pages and live in that community a while.

"The Redemption is nothing like a fairy tale, Miss prim. fairy tales and ancient legends are like the Redemption. Haven't you ever noticed?" 

"Can you imagine what you would be like if you didn't have anyone close who was capable of influencing you? Anyone to point out your flaws, to confront you when you went too far, to correct you when you did something wrong?"

I found this interview with the author interesting.
