  5. D. E. Stevenson: Anna and her Daughters. Rinehart. Completed February 27, 2008. A comfort read by one of my favorite authors. I don't think this one is her best, but I like it because it included a little window about what happens to the characters from my favorite title, after the end of that book.
  6. D. E. Stevenson: Charlotte Fairlie. Rinehart. Completed February 28, 2009. Another comfort read, this one is a favorite of mine from Stevenson's books.
