message 30: by Lina (new)

Lina | 5563 comments I seem to remember the synopses of The Bride, so I'm thinking I may have read that in my teenage years, but always love a good Garwood historical!


message 31: by Lina (new)

Lina | 5563 comments Amy, Anne of Green Gables was one of my fave movies growing up, and now that my daughter is almost 8, I was wondering about reading the book with her and then watching the movie. Would love to know what you think, whether it'd make for a good read-along with a child?
