From the very first page of Songs from the Well, I was in love. Adam Byrn Tritt’s story about his wife’s life, family and contribution to the world and everyone around her placed me in his shoes and showed me exactly why he was- and still is- absolutely head over heels in love with her.
This story is packed full of sweet sentiments, hilarious stories of Adam and Adam’s wife- Lee’s- adventures, heart warming family connections and tissue worthy poetry.
This book is not very long, but I’ll admit to you all, my faithful readers, that it took me three days to read. Not because it was difficult to get through, but because I wanted to savor the story. I wanted to take my time with Adam’s and Craig Smith’s (a friend of Adam’s) recollections of Lee’s life, their experiences of grief and mourning and wonderful insights for ways to look at life.
Adam also writes a letter to his granddaughter about his family and their ancestors and past, which makes me envious for that rich of a family history.
This author and Songs from the Well will capture your heart and fill your emotional bucket with love, friendship, laughter and sorrow.
