by Michelle Jinnette
November 2, 2010

The Sound of Sleigh Bells by Cindy Woodsmall was a great book and an easy read. It only took me less than a day to read the whole thing. I really enjoyed the story of Beth and her struggles. Most of the time, I put the Amish up on a pedestal and... [Read on]

November 7, 2010
