Nothing Fancy

I thought I’d try a really plain theme for my blog.  I think it’ll help with load time, and probably make things easier to find.

The main character, Sarah, is the strongest aspect (at least in this excerpt). She is quite fully realized, very believable and so well drawn that I can easily visualize her. Her reactions as she deals with her problems are realistic. The author has done an excellent job introducing the characters and setting out the problems they face. The needed information is supplied but it is done in an interesting manner
