Discovering Rob Roy McGregor Hall, Our Cousin
I'm grateful that I'm so easily impressed. A few years ago I discovered that my husband and I each had cousins who married each other. You may think that's a common occurrence, but it was stunning to me, as we seem to come from different worlds. Larry is or...
