The Mayflower Bride by Kimberley Woodhouse

I enjoy reading real history within a fictionalized story and this was a good one. The author's notes tell of the great research she did and even used the names of many actual passengers on board for the trip to the New World in her novel. Many had great hope for a new life. Many were fearful and doubtful. Many died aboard ship and many died that first winter. The passengers had little personal space. It was cramped and disease and seasickness was rampant. The smells were stifling and storms…See More

Their Daring Hearts by Sharlene MacLaren

This was a very entertaining novel! I was drawn right in when I learned that the female heroine was going to disguise herself as a boy/man and join the Union Army during the Civil War. At nineteen years old she cut her long hair, put on baggy men's clothing and practiced talking with a deeper voice. The men in the regiment she was assigned to had a hard time believing Gordon Snipp was nineteen since "he" had no sign of whiskers, not even fuzz. But Josephine was determined to live out the lie to…See More

No One Ever Asked by Katie Ganshert

This was one novel that I will remember for a very long time. Probably never forget. According to the author this fictional story was loosely based on actual events as early as 2013. Lots of time was spent on research, interviews, listening to an actual town hall meeting in its entirety, etc to bring this story to life. I always read the author's notes in the back of a book to gain insight into the preparations before writing. Ms. Ganshert has certainly done her "homework". This seemed to be a…See More

A Time to Stand by Robert Whitlow

I read this book in under two days. I had a hard time putting it down to eat, sleep and do other mundane things. It almost seemed to be ripped right from today's headlines. A white police officer shoots an unarmed black teenager. He feels justified because he heard a gun shot and thought the teenager was going to shoot him. A black female lawyer is brought in as part of the defense team and racial tensions escalate in this small Georgia town. The characters were realistic, well written and…See More

Love by the Numbers by Laura V Hilton

Posted on February 13, 2018 at 11:17am 0 Comments

This leads you back to the understanding that the Amish aren't perfect and have much the same type of problems as we do. From temptations like adultery, premarital sex, to sexual harassment, and things from nature like destructive storms. All these things happened to either Lydia or Caleb, or both. Lydia had to flee her hometown and her family because the Bishop believed his brother over her and shunned her. She moved away to run a gift store owned by her aunt, who was going on a mission…

A Home for Hannah by Amy Lillard

Posted on February 12, 2018 at 9:29pm 0 Comments

This was a different type of Amish story from most I've read. Amish do have problems just as non-Amish, it's just usually handled within their community and their church. All Hannah wanted to do was just get a little taste of the "English" world before joining the church. But when she was ready to return things happened that kept her from returning. She waited 15 years before she came back to her Amish home. Her husband passed away and left her with no money. She spent time waffling back and…

Liza's Second Chance by Molly Jebber

Posted on January 30, 2018 at 10:24am 0 Comments

An Amish Charm Bakery Novel, first in a new series! This whole series is going to be great if they are all like this first one. The characters were real. The emotions were realistic and sometimes Kleenex grabbing. And the setting was described beautifully. I kept wanting to eat cookies or pastries. Thankfully the recipe for Liza's famous molasses cookies is found in the back of the book. They sound a lot like gingerbread cookies, which I love.

Liza had been in a very bad abusive marriage…
