  1. Poor little Cotton. Wonder why he's crying???

  2. Interesting, I'm with Ann, wondering what's up with Cotton. Intriguing excerpt!

  3. Hmmm...I'm curious about a man named Strawberry Moon and want to know what happened that he thinks is "good."

    I'd love to know more!
    Thanks for stopping by to comment on my 8 - your thoughts were dead on!

  4. Poor little Cotton! I don't know about him but I have a tendency to feel everything after a frightening event, not during. I hope that's all that's wrong for Cotton.

  5. Sounds like there's more wrong than the obvious. Good snippet, Sara. :)

  6. Yes, but will the solders stay away?

  7. Aawww...war and children should never mix. Great, heartbreaking excerpt.

  8. Very touching excerpt, and I love the Native American names. Looking forward to reading more!

  9. Intriguing excerpt, can't wait to read more!

  10. This books are wonderful. For someone who has never gotten into a book or had any interest in books, these books keep my attention. Always keep you on your toes and wondering whays going to happen. Outstanding writing from an outstanding autor. The children books are also wonderful and short and to the point to keep the interest of the children.
    Love you
