“The Desire” by Dan Walsh & Gary Smalley, Susan Karsten’s latest book review

A lovely, touching story for the general reader, but with special significance for those whose lives have been touched by infertility or adoption.

Passionate Parenting, by Cary Schmidt, a review by Susan Karsten

From the blurb:  A lowly seamstress at […]
