Review: Jonathan Edwards: A Life

Jonathan Edwards: A Life by George Marsden

Historical Biography as Exquisite Art

Annabelle 6/10

The plot follows the expected traditions of a typical possession horror movie; expectant wife, Mia, who collects dolls, receives beautiful, rare, vintage Annabelle, as a gift from her husband, John. 280 more words
