After years of dreaming and months of waiting, I'm finally thrilled to announce that one of the most beautiful books ever written is finally available. Everyone who comes into my library very soon hears about this treasure. The Chestry Oak by Kate Seredy is the story of Prince Michael of Hungary whose country is being taken over by the Nazis during World War II.
The beauty of this book cannot be adequately expressed. Many years ago I was searching for a copy of this exquisite gem but prices were high. I was in need of a new winter coat. I bought the book instead. When I finally sat down to read it, I cried so hard because of its beauty I had to lay the book aside for a time. Finally I mustered up the determination to pick it back up. I cried again as I experienced the courageous heroism in the great and the small.
If you want to experience a living book as it was meant to be, buy this book. If you want to share with your children this historical time period played out in poignant beauty, buy this book. I'm thrilled beyond measure this captivating story is in print again for another generation to experience.
