A good read is Etta and Otto and Russell and James by Emma Hooper. It is a fanciful, magical story of an 84 year old woman who sets out on foot from her starkly beautiful home on the Prairies to the Atlantic Ocean. Along the way, she is joined by coyote whom she names James. It is her profound musings about life, love, forgiveness and self discovery that make the book such a touching read.
