    This was one of those books that I read slowly towards the end because I didn't want it to be over and reread numerous passages just because they were written so well I'm surprised by how much I enjoyed a book that focused so much on a topic fishing that I don't care that much about

    Lorain Hemingway writes about her life growing up in the South and being the grand daughter of Ernest Hemingway Her writing is elouent and beautiful She describes the people in her life with true character and emotion The book is about fishing as well which even if you don't fish you will understand the passion around the sport and the opportunities for friendship involved while fishing Loved this book and plan to read her other works
