Read full description of the books:
If there’s one thing in life everyone can relate to, it’s dealing with family. That means the whole range of different emotions that families share. Even though Barlean’s stories are about growing up on a farm and raising a family, there’s a common theme found in most of them—her mother. Having lost my mother, I can relate to these beautiful recollections about every day life with a person who will always love you unconditionally. Whether it’s Barlean’s mother feeding her, yelling at her for watching too much TV, or letting her “run away” and then embracing her as she returns, it was all so nostalgic to me.
People say reading poetry can make someone see the extraordinary in the mundane, and I felt the same sense of awareness as I was reading these essays, especially the author’s observations about nature and the changing of the seasons. She even throws in a beautiful poem about the wind and a story about how she loves to view her yard and house at night, as if she were a guest. How beautiful!
I felt the emotions this family experienced. I could see myself on the farm, cleaning the silverware, raising children, caring for animals, and eating fried chicken. That’s how relatable these stories are. As a reader, you can definitely connect to the author’s emotions during family gatherings, not too mention, her love of food. Whether it’s Barlean as a young girl enjoying her mother’s Sunday meals, or preparing Thanksgiving dinner with her husband, food is the connective tissue that reminds us of the joy we can only experience with family.
These stories brought back the same feelings I had as I was reading Madeleine L’Engle’s A Circle of Quiet. It’s one of my favorite books because L’Engle explores nature in such a delicate way. I would definitely recommend Barlean’s Moments of Clarity to anyone who enjoys reading about family, nature, animals, love, food and life in general. These stories evoked many different emotions, but overall, I felt a beautiful nostalgia that I would like to revisit upon reading these stories again.
