I Won't Let Go

7:12 PM


I read a really good book the other day. I had to read it for school, but I don't mind--it was a great book! It was called The Shield Ring, and it's by Rosemary Sutcliffe. She wrote a lot of books about early England. Seriously, it was very good. There was a lot about friendship in it, although the friendship between the two main characters wasn't the plot. Well, the other day, as I was finishing the book, I heard a song by Rascal Flatts, called I Won't Let Go. And I thought, "Whoa. This song could be a theme song for the book, in a way." It's a really beautiful song. I love the chorus.

                                        I will stand by you,
                                        I will help you through,
                                       When you've done all you can do, 
                                       And you can't cope. 
                                       I will dry your eyes,
                                       I will fight your fight, 
                                       I will hold you tight,  
                                      And I won't let go.

It was funny, that I heard that song as I was finishing the book. I recommend the book. It's about how the Norsemen are fighting off the Normans, who are trying to invade their (the Norsemen's) part of England. I was surprised at how extremely good it was. I finished it really quick--I just couldn't put it down. I spent all of Sunday reading it (from after lunch till about 7:00). I think that it should be made into a movie--I would be the first person to buy it. I'd like to act in it, too...But that's another story.

Well, I'll leave you now, with I Won't Let Go playing in the back of my mind (I think my dad wants on the computer). But before I go, I want to recommend The Shield Ring. And I want to remind all my friends and family reading this, that I won't let go. I'll do everything the chorus says. Cuz I love you guys.

P.S. Maybe I'll write about the book later. It's awesome!
