Have you ever read one of those books that just make you happy? I am part way through a book like this at the moment – The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart.

It is a story of a young girl, who through a kind of tragedy, finds her long lost grandmother. June (her grandmother) lives far away on a flower farm.

It is the kind of book that nurtures a deep respect for the capacity of human kindness. In fact, this wholesome human good will, delights me night after night.

‘There are times for being quiet Mr Honeychurch, and times for speaking out!’ – Room with a View

I hope that the goodness continues. It is so refreshing.
