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…

This is a true story of one man’s journey to fatherhood. His wife from the moment they married wanted to be a mother.

After several years of marriage and no pregnancy they were both tested and found they both had issues. To please his wife they checked into possible adoption, although he wasn’t totally gung-ho on the idea.
I loved how his feelings began to…

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…

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…Continue

Trish Maxwell returns to Speculator Falls, but she left some bitter feelings and hurting hearts in the small town when she departed for what she…Continue

I’m still sitting here in the afterglow as I turn the last page of Practically Married. This was the first book I’ve read by Karin Beery and I throughly enjoyed it. The characters were so fun to read about. I really felt for Ashley, being alone except for an elderly aunt and uncle. Taking a chance on a guy she meets online but not in person. And what happens when she gets to his hometown only to be waiting for him but he never shows up? Wow! This will take you on a journey of grief,…Continue

Lioness: Mahlah’s Journey gives credence to one of the little known stories of the Bible in a realistic and inspiring manner. The average reader would easily skip over the passages of scripture upon which author Barbara Britton bases her novel.
The daughters of Zelophehad, first mentioned in Numbers in the Bible, are five orphaned sisters. The oldest, Mahlah, must stand up against a male-dominated society to claim her family’s right to property in the Promised Land.…Continue

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…
