Beautiful and perfect

Sean P. Dailey, editor of Gilbert Magazine, and blogger at The Blue Boar, posts this letter from Regina Doman, in which she beautifully -- and wrenchingly, especially given the terrible loss of her little boy last summer -- explains the ways in which the final Harry Potter book touched her.

The death, the grief, the catharsis and the faith in what lies beyond ... all the things she mentions in this letter are the things I loved about this book.

Yes, there are spoilers in the letter, so if you haven't finished the series, don't peek.

Thanks for the link to the beautiful letter. Harry Potter is so much more than just a children's book!
