Patterns on the Wall
Patterns on the Wall is a fantastic book by one of my favorite authors. This wholesome, beautifully written story is compelling and deeply meaningful. The historical fiction novel revolves around a fictional young man and his triumphs during the true frozen year of 1816. This book made me want to handle my hardships in a more optimistic way. The book includes messages of kindness, gratitude to God, faith, appreciation of nature, hard work, love of learning, self-improvement, optimism, humility, long-suffering, and patience. I also learned a lot about the time period, the frozen year of 1816, apprenticeships in early America, and early American stencil artists. This book does contain romance, but in a very gentle, completely wholesome, and pure way. I would feel comfortable reading the book to the youngest of children, but I think it would be best enjoyed by ages 12+.
