One of the best books I ever read was "Judah's Sceptre and Josephs Birthright."
Written beautifully in 1902 with respect and excitement common to those days. 185 pages but I couldn't put it down til I was finished. Then I read it again. Some things are outdated, not quite accurate, or needed refined, but the overall message still stands and is overwheming. Today I actually teach on the pillar stone, and some other aspects included in that book, and with more clarity and evidence than they had then. It is partly because of that book. http://www.cbcg.org/franklin/Judahs_...Birthright.pdf
The Secret Garden, the original novel. Maybe for some but for me I could not get past scanning the wiki article for 15 sec. I'm afraid I would be laying out in the yard balling like a maniac. "Horridly sad" if that fits?
I had just partly learned the song after I heard it and had my recording playing in the background as I began to search for the songs origin. My version so far is even slower (piano and strings) with an empty "lost soul" feel. That added to the sadness as I started to read the summary.
