Just in case anyone is in need of some light and fun summer reading, I'm here to tell you about Once Upon a Marigold and its sequel Twice Upon a Marigold by Jean Ferris. One of the things we liked most about the first book was one of the main characters, Ed, who says such crazy things as "You've buttered your bread, now you must lie in it." The story is fun, too, being a non-typical, yet somewhat predictable princess love story.
We've only just begun the second book, but it already has its share of laughs and interesting predicaments. We're all enjoying it in between trips to the summer art classes, swimming in the river, having church fellowship gatherings, finishing a belated graduation quilt, perusing the library shelves, gardening and thrilling to summer lightening storms. Give them a try!
