Read an Excerpt

"I guess there's going to be a lot of marrying going on. Rosie marrying up with Miss Charlene, and Royal marring Lori Jenkins. And then, of course, there's Miss Sarah and Dewitt Falor."Tom was unhitching the horses, and he turned and looked at Ezra. "What's this about Dewitt Falor'""You don't know about him'" Ezra asked innocently. "He's been courtin' her for up to a year now. His pa's the richest man in the valley, you know. I reckon he'd be quite a catch for Sarah."Tom stared at the tall, young hired man and said through stiff lips. "I guess it would be." He limped away, leading the horses off toward the barn.Instantly Leah turned to Ezra. "I wish you hadn't said that!"He was astonished. "But everybody knows it. Dewitt's been talkin' for a long time now about how he intends to marry Sarah." "What does Sarah say'"Ezra shrugged. "She doesn't talk about it, but, of course, most people around here know that Dewitt Falor gets pretty much anything he wants."

    a classic

    The bonnets and bugles end here in ' Bring the Boys Home', number ten in the series. I recently read this series and loved it. There's nothing vulgar or stupid, their just good books with valueble lessons.I recomend these to ages 12-16. Though if there are ten and eleven year olds with reading levels high enough for these, why wait?
