I have ordered a second hard copy proof of Abby, Laurilla, and Mary Ann, and am hopeful that I can make it available at that time. (The time it takes to ship have increased, so it may be at least two weeks away. The interior is in the best color printing available, and of course the costs have risen, so the book will be more costly than I hoped.)

    The cover is so inviting! I can’t wait to get inside, I love the cow on the back cover.

    Louise: Thank you so much Melva. That is an Alderney Cow, like Julia Smith’s pet Alderney cows!
