Whiter Than Snow - Sandra Dallas

I have to tell you it has been crazy around here. Somehow the days go faster than we do! We just realized that fair entries have to start be entered next friday - and WE ARE NOT READY!!

The house is a zone of fair projects, boards here, quilts there, guns over in that area, bows on the other side. I can't wait to see what happens when the vegetables, and cake decorating have to start happening. ( Wish me luck on the cake thing)

Anyways - in all of this crazy chaos - I have made the time to read a wonderful book - because it is one of the only ways I can stay sane. And escape into a life that is of another time.

Lucky me, got to give away a copy of this book, and then got the chance to read it myself. First off, I have to tell you I LOVE Sandra Dallas' books. So I was not surprised to love this book as well.

The Book is Whiter Than Snow and it is about an incident in a mining town here in Colorado. I have no clue if it is true or not, or based off of an event here. But I have to say that the way Sandra writes just totally draws you into the story, and you feel as if you were there. You feel as if you know that characters and can identify with them , even if the events in their lives never happened in yours.

If you are looking for a book to read, I do suggest you pick this one up.

But I also suggest setting a timer when you are reading, so you don't look up and realize it is 1 in the morning. And that the alarm will go off at 5am - whether you want it to or not, and that if you accidentally hit the snooze - your 15 yo son will get mad at you, and then think that you are Irresponsible. But all that is hypothetical , as you know I would never do such a thing as that....

Ahhh, and here I thought I was the only one who reads till all hours of the nite. Thank goodness I don't have to get up at that awful hour! I've FINALLY trained the dog that he will get breakfast when I get up and he darn well better NOT wake me up when HE wants breakfast!
