“A Fool and His Monet” is a DELIGHTFUL new book written by Sandra Orchard, and published by Revell in the spring of 2016. But don’t just take my word for it, keep reading for 5 reasons why you can’t miss this new release!

These characters live and breathe. They have emotions, quirks, and motives. And each one is endearing in a special way. Continue reading
