Book Beginnings
Cheryl Cooper drove her dark blue Ford Focus down the quiet country road, passing horse and buggy. The holidays were approaching, and she looked forward to experiencing them in this quaint town of Sugarcreek. Her heart ached a bit as she realized this might be the first time in five years she won't be spending the holidays with family or a fiancé. Even though she knew now that her move to Sugarcreek after her breakup with Lance had been the right decision, the familiarity of their holiday routines created a hole inside that she hadn't expected.

  2. I've never read a book about Amish folks, or not since I read the book The Shunning. it wasn't complimentary to their lifestyle so I wouldn't recommend it. Thanks for hosting.

Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
