REVIEW OF HANNAH'S CHOICE BY JAN DREXLER

Hannah’s Choice, by Jan Drexler, is a moving novel that portrays the realistic struggles members of the Amish community deal with and the beliefs of the faith, set against the backdrop of the pre-Civil War era.

Hannah Yoder has always been true to her Amish upbringing and comfortable with her idyllic life. Yet, the dark cloud of her mother’s depression over the loss of Hannah’s siblings hangs over Hannah’s head, especially when the shadow of doubt leads the teen to…

Room for Hope by Kim Vogel Sawyer is full of Hope

Another very good book by Sawyer. The author did a great job writing this story in a way I could feel Neva’s pain. I found myself thinking what would I do? Could I take in these children? But in heartache there was hope.

Neva was far from perfect, but in her dark moments her daughter Belle would point her to God’s love. Belle was a consistent light throughout the story. A very special young lady.

This story not only highlights the hardships of the 1930’s but it shows the…

If I Run by Terri Blackstock

This book made me feel like I was watching a TV crime drama, and that's a good thing. The title If I Run should have been I Ran, because Casey did, right from the start. It was about half way into the book before it was revealed why she ran and it made better sense. Why run if she found the body but didn't commit the murder? I kept asking myself that over and over. Dylan, fresh from war with a bad case of PTSD, was hired by the dead man's family to find Casey. As he learns more about her, he is… Continue

The Calling by Rachelle Dekker

I wanted to read The Choosing because Rachelle Dekker was the daughter of Ted Dekker and I had always enjoyed his books. After finishing it, I couldn't wait to get my hands on her next one, The Calling, to find out what happens to Remko and Carrington as they leave the futuristic city of The Authority.

Escaping the walls of the great city is difficult and guards are everywhere. They must hide outside the city, but Remko feels compelled to go back in time and again to save another inside… Continue

The Cowboys Bride Collection

This is the first book I've read with nine novellas by nine different authors. Some authors were new to me, some familiar and some were new authors as well. Every story was unique but always included the rugged cowboy, women that were both tough and soft, and sweet romances that were passionate but clean. I could feel the heat, the cold, the dust, and the danger that was apart of these stories.

Some elements you will find in these stories: strong women that work like men, men fighting… Continue

Review of "If I Run" by Terri Blackstock

I'm not sure there is anyone better than Terri Blackstock. She tells this story from two perspectives, Casey, who has been accused of murdering her best friend, Brent, and Dylan, former soldier suffering from PSTD and Brent's childhood friend. These two perspectives makes this an engaging story that is also fast paced.

I love Casey and Dylan. Casey is searching for the truth and begins to find more than she bargained for. Dylan is strong and a man of faith. But he's also…
