Hi Denise,
It has been a year since you helped us find our home in Bigfork. We are both thrilled to transition our lives to Montana. The quality of our interaction with you was influential to our decision-to know there are people in Bigfork that we could connect with and enjoy. Best to you! Marcia and Jeffrey

strong silent greens serenely lingering, absolute lights like baths of golden snow.

The Little French Bistro
by Nina George

Who doesn't love a book about self-discovery and second chances and in all places-France? Reading this helped me remember and appreciate life's small pleasures and all the fun and interesting people that come into it.  This book is by the same author as The Little Paris Bookshop. Take this one down to the lake, the shore, the river or wherever you go for summer relaxing!

Writer, Sailor, Soldier, Spy 
by Nicholas Reynolds and Fred Sanders

I am enthralled by this story of one of my favorite authors, Ernest Hemingway. Apparently his involvement in the 2nd World War was more complex than I thought. He worked  with both the American OSS, a precursor to the CIA, and the Soviet NKVD, forerunner to the KGB, to defeat Adolf Hitler and the Nazis. 
He was a spy, an author, a soldier. How exciting! Makes me think I should get out more!

Please allow me to toot my own horn!
