August 2018 Loft Reads and County Fair

This month, we attended a county fair.  We love county fairs!

We enjoy viewing all the domestic arts, agricultural arts, fine arts and floral displays. 

 We have always loved animals and spent the better part of a day walking through all the barns.

        viewing the sportsmanship at all the competitions.

It's fun to look over the old tractors and to watch the harness racing, demolition derby,  live entertainment 

and the fair rides that remind us of childhood.

When not working, or at the fair,  we read and spent our evenings walking our dogs around the neighborhood. 

This month's top review was Fylgia by Birgitta Hjalmarson. I was completely enchanted by the Swedish lore and atmosphere of this readThis storyline creates a sense of mystery and intrigue and evokes mood and expectation fused with themes of birth, death, history, religion, and war. This is a classic tale and each character is brilliantly written so that they remind us of the eminent frailties of human nature. 

Cynthia Harrison was this months interview. Cynthia writes contemporary women’s novels and crime fiction published by The Wild Rose Press in print and e-book.  Her latest crime fiction novel Lily White in Detroit was released this month.
