This book is beautifully written and inspiring. I have been anxiously waiting to read it ever since I finished Pocketful of Pinecones and I was not disappointed! It restored my vision and touched my heart.
Loved this book! After reading a Pocketful of Pinecones I couldn't wait for another in the series. Lessons at Blackberry Farm delivered. It's so helpful to see how to put Charlotte Mason's philosophy to work through Carol's daily life. Gentle learning.
This is a delightful read! I have read all of Karen's books and was so happy when this became available. It helps us to remember what a Christian influence we have as wives and mothers. 'Gentle' is the operative word.We can speak volumes just by our actions -as our children are always ready to absorb what we do!! If you haven't read any of her books before, I urge you to try this one. It's a blessing for anyone, but especially for those of us home educating our children.
When I finished reading Lessons at Blackberry Inn, I smiled and sighed with contentment. I didn't think there could be a better book than Pocketful of Pinecones. I was wrong. This books retains the flavor of the original while being completely fresh and new - explaining Charlotte Mason concepts in a way that will leave you feeling inspired and grateful. A great story, great writing and a great CM homeschool book. It just doesn't get better than this.
