SINGING IN THE MORNING by Henry Beatle Hough


Email this review


The peaceful processional of Island life is viewed with warm philosophy by the well loved editor of the and offers an awake and aware picture of the changing seasons. From the young and tender spring through summer, fall and bleak but beautiful winter, he mirrors the varied birds, flowers, trees, the bright, dark, foggy and stormy days, the stirring of nature and the discoveries the weeks and months bring; he comments on recent fads and fancies, dooryards and attics, wash on the line, city people, , he invests the arts of life and relaxed living with companionable sympathy. Thoughtful and tempered, this is aromatic fare for the city dweller whether he does or does not know Martha's Vineyard.
