THE ANGEL OF FOREST HILL
Another great Old-Order Amish read by Cindy Woodsmall. If you are looking for a quick afternoon read, this is the one to choose. Written in the third person omniscient point of view, we encounter grief from tragedy, overcoming past hurts and hangups, forgiveness, God's grace, love, friendship, and more. Makes you reflect on how you speak and act toward others and how hurtful and lasting your words can be. Recommended for all.
