April’s Character Sketch – Jesse Woodsmall

Posted by on May 7, 2014 in Blog | 0 comments

Here is April’s Character Sketch better late than never! I must say that with all time the book has taken this past month, the monthly character sketches got pushed off a little.

*Jesse Woodsmall is Carolyn’s oldest brother. As the oldest, Jesse is very protective of his younger sisters. He can be seen as a typical older brother as he teases his sisters, but he doesn’t put up with anyone else picking on them. Jesse takes after his father in desiring to be a farmer and he takes on the farm work any way he can.
