Ever just get stumped when it comes to cooking, especially what to make for dinner.  I think of dishes that I can make that isn't only tasty, but what takes only one dish. I just love one dish meals or (casseroles) it makes cooking and clean up easy.

The Teacher's Bride

My Thoughts

I just finished reading Kathleen Fuller's The Teachers Bride, in Fullers Amish Brides of Birch Creek series. I was captured at the first turn of the pages and I couldn't bring myself to put this book down. I guarantee you won't want to put it down either.

There was something in this book and Fuller's writing that made each character feel very genuine that you could actual relate to the characters, and perhaps even know some that are very similar to those in this story. I honestly can not say enough about this book I throughly enjoyed it and I am so thankful for these books that are encouraging to the reader.
