The 44th book in the series, this book is set in 1938 in Seattle, Washington. Historical events included how some families were beginning to "recover" from the Great Depression and life was normalizing for them, while others were still out of work and losing their homes. Movies such as Snow White and The Revenge of Tarzan came out. Radio dramatizations and broadcasts were another source of entertainment, and the "War of the Worlds" radio broadcast deceived and concerned many citizens as they were misled into believeing there was an alien invasion on the East Coast. Character issues that were touched on included responding to having belongings stolen, donating to help the homeless population, caring for others who are injured or ill, teasing and pranks (fun vs. unkind?), and different reactions to gossip with discriminatory tones.

I am not much of a blog reader. There's only a couple I check on occasion:
Love this girl's writing... feels like she's a long distance friend. Well, her sister is my long-distance friend, so that probably helps. Either way, what an inspiration and encouragement- you just need to check out some of the places life has taken Leah and be strengthened and inspired by the love that oozes (yes, oooozes) from her heart for Jesus, His people and His creation!
If you like nummy recipes, or have special dietary needs (or both!) check it out. ALL of her recipes are Vegan, and many can be made gluten-free. I stumbled upon it when searching for dairy/egg free treats to make for my kiddo and have gotten hooked on several recipes. Okay, "hooked on" doesn't portray it well enough. How about "addicted to"? That's more fitting. Will definitely be going back for more!
