When the Adobe Digital Editions installer comes up, click on 'Download Item.'
If you are downloading a DRM Protected eBook, you will be prompted to open or save the URLLINK.acsm. Click 'Save'.
Save the file to your Desktop for quick access later.
Right-click on the URLLINK file, then select 'Open With' and choose Adobe Digital Editions.
If Adobe Digital Editions is not in the list, click 'Choose Default Program' and then select Adobe Digital Editions from the list.
Your eBook will open and display in ADE.

Eventually nephew Patrick and his wife, Rachel, take Sophia into their home, and she observes from a careful distance their earnest faith and the simple gifts of kindness they generously bestow upon her and others-this in spite of an unthinkable tragedy they've suffered. Dare she unlock the door behind which she stalwartly conceals her broken heart?
An insightful and moving portrayal of the transforming power of love
For readers who are more plot-oriented than character-driven, the book gets off to a slow start and threatens to remain dull. However, about midway through the novel, the pace picks up as secondary characters become more interactive with the central character. Patrick and Rachel, the relatives with whom old Sophia resides, are patient and gentle, but also realistic in their needs for privacy and a life of their own. The family living across the street is made up of Steve and Teri and their daughters Mindy and Veronica, and they have any number of personal problems that add some zest to the overall story. There are many back stories that could have been elaborated on, and many subplots that demand more attention than they are given, but overall everything is decently explained.
Though this book may seem tedious to those who would prefer a fast-paced and exciting story, people who enjoy slower, more thoughtful works and who are interested in becoming more empathetic to older adults, just might find Winter Birds worth their time. Sarah Haines, Christian Book Previews.com
