My love of reading started when i was young, and it gives me immense pleasure to provide books to Spread the Word Nevada, an organization that passes them on to children in the community. They are a terrific organization supporting an important cause. If your local I encourage you to check them out. For those living further a field, look in your own community, their may already be a similar program in place. And if not, you can always help start one.

I liked that this story really tells about history ... printing, housekeeping, dress, and cooking during the Revolutionary Era. The mystery was interesting too.
