Family Lessons

Family Lessons by Allie Pleiter

  I loved the story line, helping orphans find homes. It has lots of action that you would expect in a good western type book, and great characters.

 What I didn't like is that two orphans still didn't find homes, and some one was stealing things that were old or broken and giving them back repaired looking almost new, book doesn't say who did that or what happened to the rest of the orphans.
