This is Elv. When I want to just disappear into another world for a little while, I read. The last few days I have fallen into another one of Alice Hoffman's books, The Story Sisters. The first 1/3 of the book is filled with some really wonderful imagery. I have BIG plans for a series of illustrations of the Story sisters. Elv is the oldest of the 3 sisters. She spends many evenings in a Hawthorn tree outside of her bedroom window. After digging a little, I found out that there are some suspicions and folk stories about the Hawthorn tree. I love Hoffman.
