Reading Martha’s Vineyard – Isle of Dreams by Susan Branch is like eating rhubarb crisp. It is savory, sweet, and delicious. This visually appealing book is beautifully illustrated with Branch’s own water-colored illustrations and photos of animals and nature. She writes: “I loved the quiet, the birds, the snowfall, and lighting candles in the purple twilight.” Martha’s Vineyard is based on her diary of starting a new life, but also includes dialogue, so you feel like you are there, in the story. It includes servings of inspiring quotes and home-made recipes for goodies such as carrot cake and marshmallows.
My favorite quote: “So, I started reading autobiographies, biographies and diaries of people I admired to learn how they had overcome obstacles, discovered who they were, moved ahead, and made something of their lives.” — Susan Branch
I highly recommend Martha’s Vineyard – Isle of Dreams to anyone who would like to read something refreshing and delightful, as this book is too beautiful not to read.
