Two Clumsy Hands by Edith Witts (1956)

About Two Clumsy Hands…and me!

Two Clumsy Hands is a dear story written by Edith Witts in 1956 and was a Sunday school prize for my mum the following year. The title refers to ‘clumsy’ Jane, who learns through the opportunity to help a school friend, the patience of her loving parents, and the stories from her grandmother, that she has valuable gifts to help others, in spite of her outward clumsiness.

Although I was already an avid reader and lived my life up the Faraway Tree, by the shores of Plum Creek or daydreaming with Anne, this story made an indelible impression on me and its uplifting, sweet little story of a time gone by is one of my dearest keepsakes.

The Bible is my favourite book. Everyone’s heard of it, most people have an opinion on it, but how many have actually read it? Regardless of your beliefs, if you love literature, the Bible is a must-read.

This website is a home for LISTS! And especially my ongoing reading list of 100 books read from 1850 to 1949. Alongside my love of reading is a love of history, especially social history, and reading fiction from particular eras gives a fascinating glimpse into life during that time. I’ve currently read 85 out of 100. Please check it out and feel free to offer suggestions or alternatives! Even better, join me!

I’m an Aus-Brit who longs to visit the Scottish Highlands. I love urban life one day, rural life the next. My dog Charlie, is my furbaby. Fortunately the rest of the family are with me on this!
