Reader Friday – Winter’s Kiss

Patricia Bradley Reader Friday

I have a confession to make. Earlier this month I was reading a fiction book that had been recommended as a good example of writing. It was an excellent example of writing, but it was also very dark and somewhat graphic with the violence. I could not finish it. After years of reading Christian Fiction, I discovered I couldn’t put such a dark …

The Squirrel
