Modern pioneering- Georgia Pellegrini

Calling all do-it-yourself'ers, gardeners, culinary enthusiasts and think outside the box'ers. This is the book for you! Now, it's up to you to decide which page will suit your fancy at any given moment. Do you want to make a watermelon keg for your next party, fashion some new glassware out of your empty beer bottles, devour some beet marshmallows or make a press for your flowers? Well that's just the beginning of the things you will learn to do in this book. You will find dozens of delicious recipes, great gardening tips, home improvement projects and a lot more! And all inside a tastefully done, creativly laid out, full color book that's pleasing in every way. This is a great book! Even better than I had anticipated. There are so many fun things to do. Tons of great recipes. And a whole manner of creative ideas. I love the look and feel of the book. It's very pleasing to the creative eye, but practical as well, it is definetly the kind of book I'd encourage friends to buy, or for me to purchase as a gift. Very well done! I received this book free in exchange for an honest review by the publishers.

Seasons of Tomorrow

After experiencing many trials in her life, Rhoda Byler is finally starting to feel like things may be going as planned. She is with the man her hearts wanted all along, her canning is going well, and the farm seems successful. But things can never be quiet too long. An illness in the family causes a lot of worry, and Leah, seeking after an englisher, friend of the family or not, is threatening the whole community that's just settled in Maine. And as Rhoda moves on, she also feels regret for the past, was she too harsh on Jacob? Is it her fault he is not communicating with them? With all that's going in when will they finally experience peace? When will this new journey finally show them what it's about? When I read the third book in this series, I actually had no idea a fourth was in the works. I felt that the end of the third was sufficient, but I did have to use my imagination to make a more conclusive ending. I was so excited to see a fourth one come out. I have enjoyed this whole series. I love all her twists and turns and depth of story. As well as her complex characters. Another great book by Mrs. Woodsmall in my opinion. I received this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
