I read this today with my 4 year old daughter. We both enjoyed it very much. My little one loves to hear about love and was delighted ot see a picture of mommy and daughter nose-to-nose in a cuddle, something we do often.
My heart squeezed at the images and words with the grandparents. Not everyone is as lucky as us, to have all four grandparents in our children's lives. I Really Love You, Ava is a precious nighttime read.
The company chairman lay dead in the woods, his orange hunting jacket punctured by a bullet at close range. Around him stood the four executives with whom he had been hunting, each with a reason not to be sorry about the man's death. A classic murder mystery, it would seem: the kind where the detective gathers everyone together at the end and solves the case. But Lucas Davenport knows it's not going to be that easy. There are currents running through this group, hints and whispers of something much greater than the murder of a single man. Some time soon, unless he could stop it, there would be other deaths - and Davenport can't help but wonder if maybe the final death might be his own ...

Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us." - Marianne Williamson We live in a world of darkness and shadows, where monsters hide and aim to ruin. And they did. They ruined us and turned our dreams into nightmares. But now we're back. And we're fighting. Not just for us, or for each other, but for our light.

Excerpt from Lives of Female Mormons: A Narrative of Facts Stranger Than Fiction The institution of slavery in a free government is a paradox, and gives the lie to the professions the authors of this republic made, else have we shamefully perverted their gifts - which, it is not hard to say. Territory which they pledged to be free has been overshadowed by the darkness of African servitude the political inﬂuence of such an institution has grown apace with each additional State adopting negro prop erty as a basis of representation in Congress - and thus has the free government of our fathers become but free in form, to protect a tyranny such as no civilized nation on the face of this earth would tolerate. The responsibility of such a perversion rests with the degenerate sons of noble sires, and the future will not fail to fasten the record where it belongs.
