Born on St. Patrick's Day
A road trip into the Ozark mountains with her step-father leads Melissa to the Boone docks, where the Boone family has lived for a hundred years. She learns about the infamous Hatfield and McCoy feud as well as out-houses, long-legged spiders and Bluegrass music.
She gets her first taste of sassafrass tea. And when her mischievous cousins add a secret ingredient to the tea, Missy is transported to a place with a castle, a dragon and a handsome earl with a Scottish accent. Melissa tries to dismiss this dream, as she has dismissed so many similar ones recently. But this one was so vivid, she can not help thinking it meant something.
Finally, she is introduced to a dusty, old Celtic harp that transforms itself at her very touch. Melissa realizes that her destiny has been predetermined. And, like it or not, her life was about to change.
Marie's Pet Shop:
Pets' Night Out
Who doesn’t wonder what those poor little pet shop animals do when the lights go out? Do they lie quietly in their cages just hoping tomorrow will be the day someone chooses them?
Pets’ Night Out is the first in the Marie's Pet Shop series, and it follows four of the pet shop animals on their silly adventures as they explore the mall after the store closes at night.
This is a perfect "read to me" book for parents and grandparents to enjoy with their children and grandchildren.
