A Faithful Gathering by Leslie Gould

This was a story close to my heart in several ways. The nursing aspect (my son is an RN), WWII (my father-in-law served in the military during that time), the cancer diagnosis (I was diagnosed with cancer seven years ago), the end of life Hospice care (I went through that with my mother) and the difference in beliefs within a family.An unusual career choice for a woman brought up in the Amish faith, Leisel attends and graduates from nursing school. She feels God has called her into this…See More

Convergence by Ginny L Yttrup

If you want to take a “wild ride” through the raging “rapids” of a physiological thriller then this is definitely the novel for you!  I’ve read and reviewed two other books by Ginny Yttrup, Home and Invisible, but Convergence was a totally different “animal”.I was in the grip of the words on every page. The “prologue” had me, then the plot totally changed in the first chapter. Denilyn was a PHD psychologist, number one selling non-fiction book author, and a victim of a stalker. She was a…See More

The Forgiving Jar by Wanda Brunstetter

The Forgiving Jar is book two in the Prayer Jar series. Book one, The Hope Jar, is good to read first to fully know what has happened but this one could still be read as a stand-alone. The main theme of course is forgiveness. Two of the main characters, Michelle and Sarah, both have issues from their pasts that need addressing. It eats at both of them, especially Sarah. She is hard-nosed against Michelle and holds tons of resentment towards her. It makes Sarah a very unpleasant person to be…See More

Ellie’s Redemption by Molly Jebber

Loved the first book about Liza and this is a continuation about Ellie, her stepdaughter. But it can be read as a stand-alone, so don’t let that hold you back. Ellie works in Liza’s bakery with Liza’s niece Hannah, who happens to be Ellie’s best friend. Ellie left the Amish life twice during her rumspringa, but now is totally committed to her faith. As hard as she tries, she is still looked down upon by many in the community. Fears are that she’ll win people and hearts and then take off again.…See More

One Thing I Know by Kara Issac

I’ve read other books by this author and they were all good but this one is my favorite so far. It had a lot of emotion, deception, childhood issues and romance. The two main characters had more in common than they realized for a long time. Both had grown up with alcoholic fathers that put their families in turmoil. They both struggled with issues relating to their fathers and how it affected the way they lived their adult lives later on. A big deception relating to the true author of several…See More

The Alamo Bride by Kathleen Y’Barbo

Posted on February 16, 2019 at 5:55pm 0 Comments

The Alamo Bride is book seven in the Daughters of the Mayflower series. I’ve read all of them so far and they just keep getting better and better. I’m also learning American history in a fun way that was so dull in school. I appreciate each author’s research into the history of our country and how they incorporate it into what Kathleen Y’Barbo calls “bent history”. She uses real facts and sometimes has to bend them just a tad to fit them into her fictionalized storyline. But it does not take…

Breach of Trust by Rachel Dylan

Posted on February 16, 2019 at 5:14pm 0 Comments

This book three in the Atlanta Justice Series was full of twists and turns. Two incidents that seem totally unrelated, or are they, bring lawyer Mia Shaw into grief, then anger and a case her firm gives her that puts her life in danger.

This can be read as a stand-alone but I highly recommend the first two also. Author and lawyer, Rachel Dylan, brings so much “to the table” with her expertise. There is lots of nail biting, heart thumping action to get the avid reader staying up late at…
