Wanda Brunstetter's "The Seekers, The Amish Cooking Class"

The Seekers by author Wanda Brunstetter is another great Amish offering from a gifted author. This 320 page paperback novel published by Barbour is absolutely a page turner. I didn't want to do anything except read it from cover to cover.



This book has everything that I enjoy in Christian fiction. Author Wanda has included plenty of scripture in her book. There are inspirational messages dealing with love, forgiveness, values, respect, and redemption. The present day issues of PTSD,… Continue

Pages of Ireland by Cindy Thomson

One of my biggest pet peeves when authors decide to use real people and events from history in their fictional tales is when they change the essence of who those people were so really they’re only using the “celebrity” and not the truth.

 

Then you have wonderful authors like Cindy Thomson who are able to use their talented imaginations to create an entire fictionally based story around history but stick to the truth of the time and…

Getting trashed by authors who wrote about Jesus

I run a blog, Artistic Bent, where I review books for both Christian and Secular Authors.

Most of the time  I like it because I get to discover all kinds of books and the people behind them. Admittedly I'm a little more biased towards those from the UK since my family is Irish but I make a real effort to read books from around the world because one of my favorite things is how different a mystery book for example can be when it's written by American author versus British or…

Kings, Presidents, and Rulers

The scripture for today, February 21, is Daniel 2:21 as found in the Old Testament of the Bible:

"He [God] changes times and seasons; he sets up kings and deposes them. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning."

It seems there is always some amount of restlessness within each nation regarding who is ruling. Some people like the ruler, some do not. Or people may start out liking the…

Get young readers interested in history!

My interest in history began in grade school with an Ohio history notebook in fifth grade.

(It was embarrassing to see it in a recent clean-out of "old stuff").

Later trips to Indian Mounds and the Campus Martius Museum in Marietta, Ohio, fueled

my eagerness. Now I write historical fiction for young readers--an excellent path to grabbing

the interest of the young students of today.

Historical fiction takes readers on a journey back in time so they see,…

The Magic Number

I was requested again this year to write a romantic short story and read it as part of the program for my church's annual tea for ladies. Some of the women who missed the tea want to read the story, so I've copied it here:
