Imagine the fantastic secret garden that goes along with this entrance! I mean, this isn't your normal run of the mill trellis here. This place is incredible and only seeing it in person can do it justice. Just look at the details on the pillars!
I could actually see myself sitting in these seats, reading my book and gazing out over the lawn, watching the children play. Oh, wouldn't that be something!!
That of course, is if I could pull myself away from my glorious bedroom in this mansion!

devotion, honestly and regret that will linger long after the last page is turned.
Masterfully written and beautifully told. It happens quietly one August morning. Two families awaken to find the little girls have gone missing in the night. Now these families are tied by the question of what happened to their children. And the answer is trapped in
the silence of unspoken family secrets."
Now do you see why I can't wait to get my hands on this one??
Some of the grave markers were half buried themselves. And the stones were very thin and worn. You couldn't even read the writing on some of them, they were so worn away. I always walk around and think about the people. What life must have been like back in the 1800s. The things they must have seen and gone through. I thought I was hot just walking around there in my shorts and tshirt. I can't imagine what they wore and how hot it must have been in those clothes. I got back into my air conditioned truck. Can you imagine a time with no A/C??
I enjoy reading about the history of the towns and I love to imagine what it was like. It must have been really something!!
