I recently drove through Cather land and saw the countryside that Willa wrote about so eloquently. So I had to reread the book. What lovely prose and tender feelings Cather captured.

My Antonia by Willa Cather. Slow, but beautiful. Cather really knew how to write, how to depict something so eloquently that you start seeing everyday things (like grass) in a new light. My Antonia was a great example of her work and a story of just life and people.

My Antonia  My daughter asked me what was my favorite book ever, and I said this one. I can't fully explain why, but I absolutley adored Willa Cather's descriptive language and her characterizations as a start.
