End of November 2010

The mornings are dark - and the afternoons too - but the shortest day of the year has past! We have decorated the store for Christmas in time for the Parry Sound Santa Claus parade this coming weekend. It is light and bright and festive in the store no matter what the weather outside.

It is a well written, feel good novel, perfect for Christmas gift giving. You can read a full review on our website.
