I love this series! Anna Hess is the author and she is someone I can really relate to. Occasionally past issues are free at Amazon. Right now you can get Volume 2 for free! Even when the issues are not free, they are only .99 cents! Still...free is better.
As usual with Amazon Kindle Free eBooks, they don't always STAY free, so get yours now before its gone.
