J. Grace Pennington ~ One movie I always get the urge to watch when summer rolls around is Anne of Green Gables with Meagan Follows. I love the book series so much, and they got absolutely everything perfect in that movie. It's so beautiful and innocent and I love Anne's character, plus it just reminds me of a sweeter, simpler time and makes me want to roam the White Way of Delight with Anne and Diana on a warm summer day. I think it's about time for a trip to the library to check that one out...
May I, then, offer my favorite summer book?
Hands down – The Emancipation of Aunt Crete by Grace Livingstone Hill*. Smell the sea, feel the rustle of a new silk dress, taste the ice cream cones, hear Sousa’s orchestra, and delight in a love as delightful as any romance written…the love of a nephew for his aunt. This book is a must-read for a hot day!
*Grace Livingston Hill wrote hundreds of books, many of them romances. While I do not condone or read her novels in general, this is a sweet story of love between a nephew and his neglected maiden aunt, and I have found it very touching and uplifting.
Jenelle Schmidt ~ Favorite summer movies would include Independence Day, The Princess Bride (a favorite any time of year), Sahara, Pride and Prejudice (2005 Kiera Knightley or A&E version), Dreamer, Anne of Green Gables, Sense and Sensibility, and The Rookie.
Kendra Ardnek ~ I'm not really a TV/Movie Person, to begin with, and summer's for running around outside in the sprinklers. However, I have been watching H20: Just Add Water, a show about three Australian girls who turn into mermaids when they get wet, here and there, I don't love the show, but it's interesting.
