The Patmos Deception {A Review}

Setting: Greece and surrounding Mediterranean area That got me right there. I would love to go to the Mediterranean someday (I may have to learn how to spell it correctly first)! I enjoyed picturing the island of Patmos, Cyprus and cruising the Aegean Sea. Plus, I have always enjoyed Mr. Bunn’s writing. The story is […]

Where to begin…

One thing that is common to every family that deals with disabilities is the need for help. It may be help as minor as a listening, non-judgemental ear, it may be as huge as modifications to the home and specially equipped vehicles. In my own experience it isn’t easy to get the help that we […]
