Bonita and the Barn on Hiram Edson’s Farm / Everhart, Linda May / Paperback / LSI

945-6833 L


Join Sara, her family, and her favorite doll, Bonita, on an outing to Adventist pioneer Hiram Edson’s Farm in Clifton Springs, New York. Visiting this historic site, they step back in time and imagine the spiritual experience of those who lived on the farm in 1844. What starts out as a beautiful day suddenly changes, when Bonita and Sara end up going through a scary experience that stretches Sara’s faith in God’s care.

Regardless of age, we each need a greater love for God, a stronger faith, and a broader knowledge of God’s intervention in history.

“We have nothing to fear for the future, except as we shall forget the way the Lord has led us, and His teaching in our past history.” —Ellen G. White

About the Author

A graduate of Atlantic Union College, Linda May Everhart spent 30 years as an elementary school teacher in New York, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Vermont. Within her teaching career, she took time to be a full-time mom and homemaker—the best thirteen years of her career. For ten years, she and her husband, Jim, were site managers of the William Miller Farm, an Adventist Historic Site in Upstate New York, and then became docents at the Hiram Edson Farm, another Adventist Historic Property. At the Miller Farm, she was known as the “cat lady” for all the feral cats that she cared for there. She enjoys reading, writing, and visiting museums and parks. She and her husband live in Eau Claire, Michigan.
