|My sweet sister and her family|
So, I have a favor to ask. I need some book ideas as a gift for my sister. Let me back up a bit to explain why I'm asking. My sister is my absolute best friend in the world, aside from my husband. I talk to her almost every day. Her husband is in the army infantry, and is leaving for his first deployment to Iraq. He will be gone for at least a year. She has six children ranging from ages 11 to 1. Her husband is an amazing father, and his children were devastated when he left for basic training. It's going to be a tough time for her emotionally, dealing with her own fears and trying to comfort her children.
I'm in Scotland currently, and there is no feasible way for me to go and visit her to help. My heart aches for her so one little way I thought of to cheer her up is with some movies and books for both her and her children. Here is where you come in. I'm looking for books that are light, easy reads. Definitely steering clear of anything depressing. She's pretty conservative in her tastes so books free of graphic language, violence, and sex would be ideal. Any books that you've read and loved that fit that description? I'd love any suggestions!
