The Winnowing Season - Cindy Woodsmall

A Unique Amish Fiction Book

by Kristen Whirrett
May 15, 2013

A Delightful Christmas Read

by Kristen Whirrett
January 2, 2014

A Portrait of a Christian Crusader

by Kristen Whirrett
April 15, 2013

One Glorious Ambition by Jane Kirkpatrick tells the story of 19th century crusader Dorothea Dix. I didn't know a lot about Miss Dix before reading this book. This historical fiction book changed that fact. Dorothea Dix was the eldest daughter... [Read on]
