Author Tina Barseghian offers easy-to-follow how-tos for Christmas projects, delicious recipes, and tips to make this Christmas your most memorable yet. The thing I enjoyed most about this book is it is divided into sections and is easy to read. You don't have to do it in one sitting. You can skip to the section you're most interested in and find some great ideas. Though, I have to warn you... you'll get sucked into the book and find yourself perusing all the sections! It's a great book, and I definitely recommend it!
The Dog Who Healed A Family and Other True Animal Stories That Warm the Heart and Touch the Soul is filled with stores about not-so-ordinary household pets. Like the German shepherd adopted by a teenager with terminal cancer who outlives the boy and becomes a "Good Shepherd" for many other children suffering chronic and life-threatening diseases. There's the miniature pig named Pigger who helped its' owner conquer agoraphobia (a fear of open spaces and crowds) and touch many other lives.
Be warned.... if you're a softy like me, this book will have you in tears. Tears of warmth, and love, and gratitude not only for the animals in the book, but for the animals in my life. Even that dang mutant goldfish swimming around in the big tank in the family room (that's a story for another day)!
Thanks Harlequin for these wonderful books. A big "thumbs up" for both!
Now, everyone... get busy reading!
