My Review Of: “The Major’s Daughter,” by Regina Jennings

“The Major’s Daughter” by Regina Jennings brings Caroline Adams back to Ft Reno in the days leading up to the historic Oklahoma land rush. Caroline is so eager to strike out on her own that she joins the race without letting her father know. The ensuing circumstance turn old acquaintances into competitors who later become allies in this tale that is so well researched that it could be mistaken for history itself. The character development builds upon the existing players from earlier books in the series, but is clear enough to allow a reader who is unfamiliar with the previous parts to follow easily. I recommend this book!

My Review Of: “Homefront Heroines,” by Rita Gerlach, Lauralee Bliss, Johnnie Alexander, and Amanda Barratt

“Homefront Heroines” by authors Rita Gerlach, Lauralee Bliss, Johnnie Alexander, and Amanda M. Barratt is a pleasant collection of stories filled with love and sacrifice as women go beyond the call to help their nation during World War II. Each story takes the reader to a new situation where we learn that, in spite of war, love continues to find a way. The varied styles of the authors is obvious from story to story, but the book finishes very strong with the work of Ms. Barratt.

My Review of “When God Rescripts Your Life,” by Jaci Velasquez

All too often it is tempting to think that superstars live special lives where nothing ever goes wrong and there are no real challenges. “When God Rescripts Your Life,” by Jaci Velasquez shatters those assumptions as Jaci provides an in depth look into her life. I applaud Jaci for having the courage to share such a touching, and at times heart-wrenching testimony. This book reminds us that joy truly does come in the morning. The story is relatable as she has endured so many of same trials to prove that with faith and trust in Jesus Christ, all things are possible. I strongly recommend this book!!!

My Review of “A Silken Thread” by Kim Vogel Sawyer

A Silken Thread, by Kim Vogel Sawyer takes the reader back more than a century where the reader finds that the more things change, the more they stay the same. The situations and character development are perfect and readers can easily find that the circumstances are so relatable that we nearly become a part of the story. Be swept away to Atlanta of long ago where you will find yourself cheering for Laurel to select the love interest that will give her the best chance at a future filled with hope and love. I highly recommend this book.

My Review Of “Deadly Deceit” by Natalie Walters

The only disappointment is that I can only give “Deadly Deceit” a five out of five stars. It deserves a ten star rating!! Natalie Walters will not disappoint you! I read this book in only two days and it kept me on the edge of my seat from page one until the very end. Readers are guaranteed to fall in love with this second book in the series as well as the first book “Living Lies.” Follow along and allow Natalie Walters intricate and powerful writing sweep you away to Walton Georgia, while characters such as Vivian, Ryan and everyone else will each reach an epic destination. I strongly recommend this book!!!

My Review Of “The Englisch Daughter ,” by Cindy Woodsmall,Erin Woodsmall

“The Englisch Daughter,” sheds a whole new light on the Amish life. To say the very least , it is not your typical Amish story. One would be surprised to read of repeated use of cell phones and Uber apps.
Rather than whisk the reader to a simpler lifestyle and community ,this book is filled with twists and story lines that lead one to believe that the lives of the Amish are just as complicated and worldly as the societies from which they separate themselves.

My Review for “Of Fire and Lions” by Mesu Andrews

Of Fire and Lions by Mesu Andrews stretches the very definition of Christian fiction.Very little research is required to find that Daniel would very likely have been among those servants who were made eunuchs to the king.Even the prophecy in 2 Kings 20:18 attests to such a likelihood.Therefore,the inclusion of a wife for Daniel should be considered outright fiction, as opposed to being scriptural in nature.
Furthermore, the mention of Daniel going into a trance-like state when in prayer is not supported by biblical evidence, but rather is descriptive of religions not in-line with Christianity. I am aware this book is fiction, but it was difficult to read this book in it’s entirety. If one wishes to enjoy Christian fiction, I do not recommend “Of Fire and Lions.”

My Review of: “Words Of Hope For Women,” by Carolyn Larsen

Words of Hope for Women by Carolyn Larsen is a must for any woman who finds herself needing inspiration, while having very little time to obtain it. I love the way that each new inspiration is tied directly to the Holy Bible. Taken as a daily prescription, there are enough points of emphasis to last the reader for a full three months, although I expect most to find it as difficult to put down as I did.

I highly recommend Words of Hope for Women to any woman, single or married, who wants to be reminded of the power, love, and mercy of Jesus Christ.

My Review of “100 Words Of Affirmation Your Husband Needs To Hear,” by Lisa Jacobson

When I got my copy of 100 Words of Affirmation Your Husband Needs to Hear by Lisa Jacobson, I prepared myself to be inspired by the many things I had never considered saying to my own husband. Although I did find some nuggets that I will be able to utilize on a regular basis, I also found that some of the “100” affirmations appeared to be redundancies that simply changed one or two words in the author’s efforts to reach the number “100”.

I admit that the book is very helpful as a tool for combating the constant barrage of negativity that sitcoms and movies use to portray husbands. In spite of its redundancies, I would recommend this book to any woman who wants her husband to feel appreciated and happy in their marriage.

Review of “Stitches In Time” by Suzanne Woods Fisher

Wow! Just Wow! The appropriately named novel “Stitches In Time” by Suzanne Woods Fisher speaks to the ties that bind all of our relationships from those that are just beginning with new and strong thread, to those who are hanging by a thread. The development of characters is second to none as Luke, Izzy, Sam, Molly, and all of the surrounding Amish community set out to solve a very real problem with a very real solution. The recurring theme of grace and the emphasis on the Lord is my Shepherd remind the reader that each of us is in need of redemption. I strongly recommend this novel.
