  • The Weight of Silence by Heather Gudenkauf

    It's every parent's worst nightmare.... you wake up early one morning to find that the child that you tucked into bed the night before is gone -- not playing in another room or downstairs watching TV, but truly, hopelessly, nowhere to be found.

  • Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict

    I am a bit of a Jane Austen fan. Sometimes I just need to pull Pride and Prejudice off my shelf and curl up with Mr. Darcy.

  • "A weed by any other name : the virtues of a messy lawn, or, learning to love the plants we don't plant" by Nancy Gift
