Five books that changed Carol Wall

Carol Wall was the author of Mister Owita's Guide to Gardening: How I Learned the Unexpected Joy of a Green Thumb and an Open Heart.

One of five books that changed her, as shared at the Sydney Morning Herald:
Washington Square
Henry James

What a great story—a masterpiece of storytelling. Not a single step is placed awry. I also found it amazing how much my students were drawn to the 1949 film adaptation, The Heiress, starring Olivia de Havilland. They would start off making snide remarks over being forced to watch an "old movie" in class. Invariably, they were racing to my classroom so that they could watch as much as possible during that day’s class time.
Read about the other books on the list.
