Reviews and IRS

Started this discussion. Last reply by Lee Carver Oct 15, 2017. 6 Replies

This past year, for the first time, I did several reviews. I am uncertain if I should consider these as Barter and therefore, be subject to taxation under the IRS rules. How do the rest of you handle…Continue

Review of Living Lies by Natalie Walters

PTSD, depression, anxiety and suicidal urges are some of the serious issues in Living Lies and the author suggests that our society can harshly judge people who suffer from these illnesses. In this new book Natalie Walters has created several characters with mental health problems who become part of a serious crime. The suspense revolves around the unsolved murder of a teenage girl in Walton, Georgia and the assumption that she was killed by a former soldier who had served in Vietnam. Lane Kent…See More

Review of The King's Mercy by Lori Benton

The King's Mercy can be labeled an epic historical read for more than one reason--it is 388 pages long and it is a story filled with lots of descriptive detail and numerous historical facts surrounding life in the mid 1700s! From the moment that Scotsman Alex MacKinnon is granted mercy from hanging and handed a seven year sentence to be an indentured servant there is unlimited excitement and drama. Through the author's vivid descriptions I felt like I was traveling with Alex to North Carolina…See More

Review of The Pink Bonnet by Liz Tolsma

Before reading this book I was vaguely familiar with the story of Georgia Tann and the Tennessee Children's Home Society but I had no concept of the evil that occurred in this agency over the course of 26 years. There were over five thousand children kidnapped during that time for the sole purpose of being sold to the highest bidder. Parents in Memphis had to make sure that their children weren't left alone because of this dangerous woman who wasn't above kidnapping a child as they walked down…See More

Review of A Reluctant Bride by Jody Hedlung

There are so many reasons that I love this book. The history fan in me loved learning, for the first time, about the bride ships that transported young women to become the brides of strangers. These journeys from England to Vancouver Island and British Columbia in the 1860s were often filled with dangerous storms, overwhelming hunger, devastating illness, and they always held the uncertainty of what was waiting at the end of the trip.The romantic part of me swooned at the overwhelming…See More

Review of The Refuge by Ann H. Gabhart

This new book by Ann H. Gabhart shares a lot of the history of the Shakers, a religious community that was prominent in Kentucky in the 1800s but best of all, she gives readers a wonderful love story. Yes, there is a hint of a romantic love that might develop but the true love story involves parental love. Much of the plot revolves around the influence that the Sisters and Brothers of the Shaker community have on Darcie Goodwin's and Flynn Keller's commitment to their children. Darcie's love…See More

Review of What If? by Melody Carson

I truly enjoyed this new picture book What If? and I believe that the targeted audience will enjoy it also. My granddaughter is a five year old who loves rhyming words and Carlson has chosen to write her book in easy to understand rhyming text to ask the question What If? ; she also uses repetition and this is another great way to keep a child's attention. The illustrations are colorful and fun and illustrator Bethany Harris pairs them perfectly with the animals and insects that are being…See More

Review of Unexplainable Jesus: Rediscovering the God You Thought You Knew by Erica Wiggenhorn

Posted on June 14, 2019 at 11:00pm 0 Comments

I am always eager to have the chance to review a devotional or a Bible study guide and I can't begin to describe my appreciation of Unexplainable Jesus, a new 8-week Bible study of the New Testament book Luke. Rediscovering the God You Thought You Knew is the subtitle and author Erica Wiggenhorn shares eight "unexplainable topics" to help us understand the true Jesus. The eight chapters of this book are titled Unexplainable Beginnings, Unexplainable Birth, Unexplainable Introductions,…
