Sunday was once again very unforgiving, and I woke up ill. So here we are on Monday night with part 4 of this Createyou86 Book Review.
Seeds tells the story of how Sam fell in LIKE with Gretchen. How he stood up for her in Sunday School. How Gretchen understood that Sam was different than the other children, but she never judged him for it. As a child they spent virtually every weekend together. However, Gretchen's mother began to put her foot down regarding her daughter spending time with a Native American child whom everyone thought held powers including Gretchen. Sam was obsessed with Gretchen, and when he couldn't see her on the weekends he would get worried. He controlled the skies with his emotions even as a small child. He would follow his mother around the farm, and frequently disappear into the walnut grove where he kept artifacts hidden that the spirits had given him, and he spoke to the elements. He was connected to the nature all around him.
You do realize that you're connected to the world in a way the rest of us aren't, right? You always were.
Fights begin to break out at home after Annika's husband leaves her for the school librarian, and Sam and Gretchen again become connected spending more time together. They promise to be there for each other through thick, and thin, and Sam tells Gretchen that he loves her, but she returns with how she thinks he is like a brother to her. His emotions caused a storm, and he drove Gretchen home wordlessly.
I am starting to really enjoy this read. The story is simple, yet intriguing, and the characters are developing nicely.
