Like Diana's previous novels:
Singing Her Alive and Jenny's Way, Diana's Pool
transported me back to beautiful northeast Connecticut. Diana writes from her vast
personal knowledge and experience of the people, places, natural and human history of
this area.
The story is set in a village where I used to live. In addition to enjoying the unexpected
outcome, I found my city starved senses remembering the landscapes, plants, sounds and
smells (yup, sometimes it was manure). As I read, it was my hope that these delightful
stories would lead many adults and children from the "nature deficit' of their digital
worlds, to a rich sensory experience through the imaginary lives of people who lived
closer to the natural world.
