Elise Skidmore writes of her father, of loss, of love, of the seasons. She writes of sadness and New York and lost innocence. And then she writes about the Amazin' Mets of 1969. Really? The Mets? Elise, you won. You touched my heart. "Today" brought a tear to my eye. "Ever Your Child" spoke of a poignant longing. And "My Father Was Still a Boy" is an amazing tribute. Beautifully illustrated, When Leaves Fall is an all encompassing compilation of emotion. Buy it, you'll like it.
