Step back into pioneer time with a snippet from each chapter of the 'Sunshine on Her Face' book
A large golden leaf fell from its beloved branch and drifted to the grass below. Then, as if being beckoned by the first leaf, a multitude of other leaves followed the first, bright golds and reds, creating the most beautiful sight Casri Eloise McKlay had ever seen. She sighed and propped her head in her hands.
This generally perplexed Casri because she wanted to know why each leaf did the same thing as the one before it. Swish, swish, swish, they went. Why didn’t one of them hold on? Why must they all fall? Was this their purpose? Casri wished she knew the answer… just like she wished she knew the answer to many other questions…like how the sky could be a glorious blue then suddenly turn a dull gray.
She wished she knew why the sun gave her a supernatural feeling of tranquility and hope when it beamed down upon her freckled face warmly. She wished she knew why her father had left her family when she was only three. But most of all, she wished she truly knew her purpose in life.........
Casri didn’t realize as the days of early autumn passed and innumerable leaves sailed to the ground, something stirred deep within her heart. Something so precious and wonderful that it spilled from her heart openly, like the flowing of a waterfall. But even though she didn’t recognize it, someone else certainly did. It all started one day…on September 22nd, 1860...........
