Like ice cream and chocolate it is best taken in small doses, but I'm not one to judge if you overindulge. I also don't think it's a spoiler to say these stories all have happy endings. They are short and delicious and I loved reading a couple before going to sleep. They really do soothe the soul like soft clouds of lavender you might spray onto your pillow.
Often the stories feature dogs or horses, and lots of coastal paths and woodlands. That's no surprise if you know Mason Bushell is a naturalist in every way and can mostly be found in the woodlands and nature reserves by his home. He dreams of opening a restaurant one day. if he ever does, I'm booking a table, but for now I still have a few stories left in this soul-calming book before I too jump into nature. I'm off to Sweden and might even reread a few stories when I am there.
