Mary, Called Magdalene by Margaret George


This book wasn't really what I expected, but it was interesting nonetheless (even though it too me forever to get through it!!)  A very different comparison of modern Christianity to Jesus and his teachings and his relationship with those around him.

Emily of New Moon


A different series from the author of "Anne of Green Gables."  Emily is very much like Anne and has a love of writing.  Isabelle and I listened to this when she was 2 years old.

The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden

"I would rather die tomorrow in the forest than to live a hundred years of the life appointed to me."

This was such a unique book - and an interested take on the fairly tale.  I got a little lost towards the end, but the writing was wonderful and I really enjoyed all of the description of the time period.  The author really brought that characters and the harsh reality of winters in Russia to life!
