On 8/1 busyknittymom wrote: This book contains three separate novels within the one volume. They do not build on or relate to each other, but are stand-alone stories. I loved each of them.

On 5/24 busyknittymom wrote: I would certainly recommend Daddy Dates by Greg Wright to any father who desires to become closer to his daughter/s.

Wonderful advice for dads of daughters AND sons,
