  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dani Moore | 1/22/2014

    " These books from Kim Vogel Sawyer bring back many memories of my Bretheren roots! When Summer bought Thomas the game "Authors" I was instantly transported to my childhood and the days and evenings spent asking "Do you have James Fennimore Coopers Last of the Mohicians?" I love watching her people struggle through their trials and tribulations. I could instantly empathise with both Summer and Peter as they struggled to find the right path. Awesome read! "
