Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Gems These writers have brought history to life, especially in the story about the Christmas decoration. It was that story that made me buy the book, after reading it in the library. With a wonderful quote from W.O. Mitchell to start the book, it is a collection of little gems.
