Maria’s Gift Ages 7 and Up
Maria’s life is hard but she faces it with courage. She does all that she can for her family, despite the cruelty of others, there in that little village where she lives. Then she goes a journey and meets unusual strangers. What will that meeting bring her? Click on the link to listen and find out. A story that has its origins in Greece and which I brought to North America. 20:56 mins.
