"This book was 10 days late to the library :( I stopped reading it to start reading the Joyce Magnin books that were ordered by interlibrary loan. A friend let me borrow this book. So, now I've got to find it so I can finish it & give it back to her. I told Dr. B I was reading it at my last doctor's appt. & he said, "It's a fun little book." Well, I appreciate his modesty, but it's more than a fun little book." Nov 14, 2012 10:16PM

This is an excellent book. I enjoyed reading it. Especially about demons. It seems as if demons is a tabu subject, where they are real. I wish I had read this book last spring before my time spent in the hospital.

I really enjoyed this book. Especially the different events. I wish we had this book years ago when we were "playing tourist" in our new areas every few years.

I think this book is better for a larger metropolitan area, so that you can truly go home a

This was one of those unstoppable books. Sarah was a very feisty woman. I loved the diary format. It was so believable.

Theodore Roosevelt
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
