The Road Less Traveled by Elizabeth Horton-Newton

We all knew about the shortcut that led to the high school. It ran along an old road and through a small tunnel before opening into the large field behind the sports field.

Fast food was a weakness … Continue reading April Showers (Part 3) by Elizabeth Newton
