Rob's review of "Render Unto the Valley"

Thanks for the super review, Rob!

I highly recommend readers who have not read Senehi's novels before, that they pick up the first two books in the series; "In the Shadows of Chimney Rock" and "The Wind in the Woods". They are also terrific!

It was an unholy Grinch's nightmare...and I was in heaven. I use Christmas cards from last year for gift tags, color coordinating them with the paper. The boxes that my daughters' boots came in (there are 3) were chic and didn't need wrapping, just a bow.

I had finished decorating my new artificial tree with Baby's…
