The bookstore (the best place to be)

It was the Goodwill this time around.  The little book on the top of the pile is a beautiful little pop-up book about the birth of Jesus.  Teacher Man by Frank McCourt sounded interesting but I could not read Angela’s Ashes written by him because it was so very sad and depressing.  The Last Sin Eater by Francine Rivers is a great book about suffering, seeking, and redemption.  It is set in the Great Smokey Mountains and revolves around a little girl named Cadi and a person known as the sin eater. During the early nineteenth century in the lowlands of Scotland and the Welsh border district Sin eaters were a common practice.  It’s a fascinating story.  The top and bottom books are for my grandson.
