Book Review: The Last of the Living Blue

 

 

Gin Getz has authored another book, her second in a year. Her first book “The Color of the Wild” was published about 7 months ago. I have followed Gin’s blog for a couple of years now, when she published her first book I was one of the lucky volunteers to get to review her book. I wrote reviews on websites and I asked, hesitantly, if I could write a review of her book on my blog. Gin was more than supportive of me writing a review, although at that time I only had about 20 followers. I waited to review her first book until I had 75 followers, I wanted her work read by as many eyes as I could offer her. I am so proud that there are over 200 of you now, her words are worth reading.

Book Review: The Color of the Wild

I can remember only a handful of Freshly Pressed blog posts that have moved me to the point of first, reading the entire post and second, clicking “Follow” at the top of the page. Gin Getz’s post was an easy decision, so easy. I have followed her blogging journey for at least a year now.

She is separate from the pack offering her followers, stunning photographs, thoughtful words, and generous story-telling. All, of which is, wrapped up and beautifully executed in each post. I can’t skim her writings, they are not meant to gulp down like a tall glass of water on a hot day. I have realized this is just Gin’s writing and living way. What a treat, an author who honestly makes you slow down, think, ponder, wonder, dream, cry, right along with her words. I find myself wanting to sip each phrase with the same savory thoughtfulness I give to a gorgeous glass of red wine or tea on a winter’s day. She effortlessly makes you dive deep into her words.
