I am going to recommend this again (and a few others). These are three of my current faves...all can be ordered on Amazon!
I have blogged about it before. I can't tell you emphatically enough, that you must read this.
And this one, too. Another true story. Another guaranteed tears book.
Almost finished with this one. I have a copy from 1925 and I am LOVING it. Such a wholesome story!
