There are great images of water… that the imagination can enjoy in the Marcella book. There are wonderful recipes… there are great encouragements. It is really valuable for Melanie to use her imagination in ways that describe earth foods, places, waters, poems and good friendships. Words are used in ways seldom seen before. It is quite a gift to see this talent come to life in words from the book.
