Get your passport ready.
How about visiting a different country? You can, today, without leaving your favorite chair. Stay home, stay safe and see the world. Here are a few destinations (and books) to get you started.
- Victoria by Daisy Goodwin (England). A refreshing look at the young life of Queen Victoria where youth and love match up with charm and verve. If you need a royal fix, Victoria’s shrewd view of the palace courtiers will keep you entertained.
- Heidi by Johanna Spyri (Switzerland). The novel’s plot follows the life of a young girl in the Swiss Alps. Heidi is strong and resourceful in the presence of shifting circumstances. You will be inspired by Heidi’s resilence especially in the shadow of the novel coronavirus.
- Anne of Green Gables by L. M. Montgomery (Canada). This is a classic book for children of all ages. Anne (with an “e”) adapts to new surroundings by finding solace in her literary ambitions.
