A Stranger at Fellsworth

This 324 page novel was a very quick read for me. The story was very engaging and the characters were such that I could feel their emotions. The time period was very realistic. The proprieties for the women of the time period are hard to comprehend though. I would probably be in trouble all the time!If you like a read full of deceit, murder, poaching and sweet romance you've got to read this. One particular character was seemingly nice at the beginning but progressively turned bad. Imagine a…See More

The Beloved Hope Chest by Amy Clipston

This book had so many elements to it. A telling to three daughters about a past of their mother and father they never knew. Accidentally coming across some baby clothes and other items hidden in an old hope chest in the attic brings lots of questions. A brother they never knew about and a former marriage of their mother. Mattie had so much loss in such a short time. Lots of grief to work through. Lifelong friend Leroy tries his best to help her through this tough period but has little success.…See More

Upon a Spring Breeze by Kelly Irvin

She is also one month away from delivering their first baby. She struggles throughout the novel with her loss and her place in the Amish community. She also questions God and why he would allow this to happen.Clearly shown is how the Plain people pull together in a crisis but also how women are supposed to submit to the men.

With You Always by Jody Hedlund

I just read the last word on the last page and I'm sitting here with a sigh and a big smile on my face. This was such a powerful yet heartwarming story. My eyes have certainly been opened to the struggles of the poor in New York in 1857. As always Jody brings true history to life in her fiction. I know without a doubt that she researches heavily the history, area, time period and living conditions of what she's writing about and I so appreciate that. She even takes real people from that time…See More

And Then There Was You by Kara Isaac

First of all I love the cover. The colors, the images are all eye-catching. The story itself was so moving. The characters were real with real problems. The two main ones, Paige and Josh, butted heads right from the beginning. Most of the time they vowed to themselves to try and stay out of the way of each other. Both seemed to be total opposites. But would they realize they had more in common than they thought?I thought it was great how the author brought out the fact that first impressions or…See More

An Amish Home - Four Novellas

These four stories by four different authors are so heartwarming, faith filled and real. When I'm really into a book, I can read it in record time, and this one was like that. Each story was unique with conflicts, troubles and issues to deal with.A Cup Half Full by Beth Wiseman moved me in that the main female character had an accident that caused her to be unable to walk. My brother was paralyzed a couple of years ago so I was able to understand some of her emotions as well as that of the…See More

My Heart Belongs in the Superstition Mountains by Susan Page Davis

This was a different type western from any I've read before, but in a good way. I had recently read a book about the Superstition Mountains so this book caught my eye. I couldn't help but feel sorry for the main character, Carmela, and all she'd suffered in her young life. Losing her parents on a wagon train headed to California when she was twelve, being taken over by a devious uncle who only saw dollar signs in his niece and having ugly tattoos marked on her face by him to fool audiences into…See More

Weaver's Needle" by Robin Caroll

This novel about a mystery in the Superstition Mountains in Arizona was very intriguing. I had never heard of a recovery specialist before but both male and female lead characters were in that business. Both had personal reasons to accept a job with a hefty payback and both were competitors in New Orleans.Danger followed them as they searched for a stolen map that was supposed to lead to a lost gold mine. Legends, folklore and superstition were interweaved among the story. Danger also caused…See More
