Through a Country Window

by Eric E. Wright

A light-hearted and inspirational look at country living from out where the sky springs free.

What happens when a farm girl from South Carolina and a city boy from Toronto trade their suburban split-level for a log house in the country? Besides crazy craft on the Ganaraska River and live theatre in a barnyard, Eric & Mary Helen Wright discover crickets in the bedroom, and thunder on the ridges. They also rediscover the creative majesty of God—and much more.

What reviewers are saying

“Eric Wright describes . . . experiences that will resonate with all who love country life, whether they live in the Smokies east of Knoxville or in the Yorkshire Dales north of London. . . . Wright’s observant eye to both nature and country culture, combined with his characteristically down-to-earth writing, makes for entertaining reading with a devotional quality. . . . I highly recommend it.” Francis Kyle, The Evangelical Baptist

“A gentle read for gentle readers. . . . Through a Country Window traces the pilgrim’s progress of Eric and his wife, Mary Helen, as they move through their first years in a wood-heated log house. . . The author explores everything from Ganny [river] racing to gardening, from gastronomy to godliness, his spirituality continually reinforced by the evidence of his senses. . . . A charmingly told tale of the quality of life that is possible when one surrenders to the charm and power of the elements, and takes the time to find the simple goodness in one’s neighbours.” Eileen Argyris, Northumberland author
