Lark Rise to Candleford

Spring Break was over this week
but Emma and I could NOT stop
watching this BBC production
of this wonderful book. We stayed up
until almost midnight last night!
We'll finish the last episode
tonight to see who marries who
and what happens to all the dear
people of Lark Rise and Candleford
in England! We've grown to love them
and want to be their neighbors. They
certainly took care of each other in
an incredibly covenantal way that we
have lost in Modernity. Wonderful out-
pourings into each others lives. The
Gospel is reflected so deeply in how they
did that. The Post Office was a central
place for even tea. Imagine!
10 episodes about an hour long
each, but on You Tube you can break it
up to suit your time limits.
Thank YOU to Storybook Woods for her
blog that include it.

Thanks so much for the link to the BBC production. I wasn't aware that there were things like that online. I've been in the DARK! :)

I remember that book being mentioned in Victoria magazine ages ago, before it quit/began again. I checked it out at the library, but not sure if I read it.

Again, thanks! And also for the link to that article about Marilynne Robinson. Loved that.
