Review: A Month of Summer, Large Print

User Review  - Clair Bradford - Christianbook.com

Outstanding weaving together the lives of those we need to nurture, the emotions within us, and the forgiving attitudes we can build. Wonderful dialect of those we encounter. Richness of language to surround us. Read full review
