Out of Africa by Isak Dinesen

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️On this rainy day I want to remember one of the most beautiful books I’ve ever read. It is very different from the film as the book is more like a journal of events occurring on the African farm of Karen Blixen. I think her friendship with Denys Finch-Hatton is the most touching, and the funeral she gave him when he died. In this book she describes rain as a blessing from God, because her coffee farm depended on rain, and they rarely received it. So thank God for rain and for the rainbows to remind us that beautiful relief will come soon after the storm. 🌈 .
