Golden leaves peaked out from the top of the tree, reminding me that autumn was here at last, and  beginning to show off its October colors.  -Lorri M.

Autumn whispered to the wind, I fall, but always rise again.  -Angie Weiland-Crosby

I finished reading Cher Ami and Major Whittlesey:  A Novel, by Kathleen Rooney.  It is a historical novel, based on Cher Ami, a homing pigeon (a factual pigeon who served in the U.S. army), and Charles Whittlesey, a commanding officer in the army (a factual person), during World War I.  Their perspectives alternate, and make for an excellent story.

The prose is well defined, depicting the horrors of war, with a tiny bit of humor, here and there.  It is beautifully written account of true events that occurred.

I am in the middle of reading Long Lost Brother, by Don Kafrissen.
