It has been said that author Linda Lael Miller considers the cowboy to be the great North American myth, the ideal of honor, courage and persistence we need to live up to. After reading Big Sky Wedding, the fifth installment in her Parable, Montana series, I think I agree. The story is the perfect mix of hot cowboy and strong woman intent on ignoring their instant attraction to each other. The author's love for children, animals and nature shine through in this small town, family-oriented, western romance.
Summer’s a great time to upgrade the body’s hard drive: the brain. And the best way to do that is to read, read, read. Summer reading programs at the Fond du Lac Public Library – Reading is Brain Food – reward kids, teens and adults for giving their brains a boost.
