A Match for Emma by Pepper Basham

I throughly enjoyed this story so much! It was great to visit the Mitchell family once again in the Blue Ridge Mountains. I’ve read several of the author’s books but these are my favorites. Being from the Deep South myself, I get a chuckle from some of the wonderful sayings and phrases used by the author to portray the mountain people in such a fun and loving way.Emma, the youngest Mitchell, is saving as much money as she can to afford a trip to Europe to culinary school. All is going well…See More

The 40-Day Sugar Fast by Wendy Speake

This is an encouraging book to let go of sugar and turn to Jesus instead. What this is not, a diet book or recipe book. It is a chance to get closer to Jesus by concentrating on him instead of food or more specifically sugar. There is a page a day for the fourty days to read and “chew” on so to speak. I’ve participated in a couple of the fasts and they have opened my eyes to God’s sweetness during the process and drawn me closer to him. I would encourage anyone to give it a try and see how you…See More

One More River to Cross

I’ve read other novels by Jane Kirkpatrick and I enjoy the fact that she uses real historical events, although partly fictionalized. In her author’s notes in the back of One More River to Cross, she acknowledges that most of the characters in the book are used with their real names. She even gives a history of what happens to them “on down the road.”This was a brave group of travelers on their way from Missouri to California. The journey began when the weather was agreeable but turned into a…See More

Choices by Jacquelyn Lynn

Choices, perfect title for this book, and there were many choices to be made. Some good ones, but many bad. Imagine being a college student coming home at 5am from a friend’s house. She texts you as you’re halfway home. You look down for a brief couple of seconds, just enough time to veer off into the bicycle lane. Thump, you stop suddenly as a body hurls across your windshield. In a panic you leave the scene in a break neck hurry, not even checking on the person you hit. Is he…See More

Hatteras Island Mystery

I got to visit Hatteras Island in North Carolina through Hatteras Island Mystery by Anne Greene. The characters were interesting and the setting was beautiful. Misty Gordon is a wedding photographer and had just finished up with a bride and groom in front of the lighthouse. All her friends have married and she’s still a lonely bridesmaid. Walking along the beach to clear her head she comes across a body on the edge of the water. He’s still breathing but unconscious so she calls 911. The mystery…See More

Stitches in Time by Suzanne Woods Fisher

I always love to find the reasons for the title of a book and Stitches In Time had several. Not the least of which is the name of Izzy’s yarn shop. And since this book is dealing with Foster Children, healing their hearts a stitch at a time. There were lots of reverence’s to sheep and their shepherd. Izzy loved her sheep and they knew her voice. Which led to correlating the Good Shepherd (Jesus) with his sheep (us). I had read that lots of Amish do not know the Bible, the father reads it to the…See More

Shadow of the Dagger by Anne Greene

This is the first full length novel I’ve read by Anne Greene. I’ve read several other of her books in novella form, mostly sweet romance type stories. This one had hints of romance but mostly suspense, intrigue and danger. Nicole travels to Turkey alone in search of her missing brother Ian. He’s all that’s left of her family after losing her husband and parents. Shortly after arriving in Turkey her purse is snatched and she is rescued by Josh, a secret CIA Intel Analyst. He does not tell Nicole…See More

This would be such a great encouragement for any young girl, it was for even me, and I’m a grandmother!

On one hundred pages there are stories from currently famous women, women who made history, and women featured in the Bible. Two made such an impact and we don’t even know their names, the woman at the well, and the woman with an issue of blood. Each person has their own page telling how faith and prayer changed them with a relating Bible verse at the…
