Laura and 7 other people liked Inder's review of The Hidden Art of Homemaking:
The Hidden Art of Homemaking by Edith Schaeffer
"Okay, I can admit when I'm wrong. Not only shouldn't you judge a book by its cover (or the info on the back), but you shouldn't judge a book by its first chapter, even when it's basically one long sermon. This book on "homemaking" is definitely no..." Read more of this review »

Disappointing, but not really the book's fault. I picked this up because I really liked Dairy Queen by the same author. This one stars two of the secondary characters from the Dairy Queen trilogy, but is aimed at a younger audience than I realized .. ...more
