February 2015 in Review

Posted February 28, 2015 in Faith, Reading / 2 Comments

It is so hard to believe it is the end of February already. This has been a crazy month.

Things that Happened in February

  • Lent started with Ash Wednesday the beginning of the month.
  • I got the nasty cold thing going around the school. I have to remember to thank my students for that one.
  • We had this really great false spring with temperatures in the 60s (Farenheit) and then we were down to the negatives again.
  • I left town twice this month! This is pretty big when the closest other places are 2+ hours away and there is a lot of snow on the ground.
  • I spent a great deal of time with my head in a book and I am perfectly okay with that.

Though once a baron’s daughter, Lady Merry Ellison is willing to go to any lengths to protect the orphaned children of her former village. Dubbed “The Ghosts of Farthingale Forest,” her band of followers soon become enemies of the throne when they hijack ill-gotten gold meant for the king.
Timothy Grey, ninth child of the Baron of Greyham, longs to perform some feat so legendary that he will rise from obscurity and earn a title of his own. When the Ghosts of Farthingale Forest are spotted in Wyndeshire, where he serves as assistant to the local earl, he might have found his chance. But when he comes face-to-face with the leader of the thieves, will he choose fame or love?
