Life After by Katie Ganshert

Katie Ganshert is an amazing novelist so having the opportunity to read one of her books early is a real treat. In Life After, she does NOT disappoint as her masterful talent shines through in a vibrantly detailed and heart wrenching novel. She really knows how to hit you in the emotional gut hard.

She yanks the emotional drive up to a ten as you feel the desperation and trauma from her characters and the scenes. Her writing is so real you start to question how you would act,…

The Memory of You by Catherine West

This is Catherine West's best one yet! I loved the family dynamics, the issues, the conflict, because these characters were real. They faced problems that anyone in real life might. Family secrets damaged relationships. Guilt and hurt plagued the main characters.

The grandfather owned a vineyard and winery. He had hoped his two sons would stay and help him run it but they went their own ways. Natalie, his granddaughter lost her twin sister in an accident when they were only thirteen. It… Continue

“ ‘Why do you bring charges against me? You have all rebelled against me,' declares the Lord."

People sometimes blame God for bad things happening in their life that are no fault of their own. They don’t really want to blame God because they want to think God loves…

The Sisters of Sugarcreek

Cathy Liggett created a warm and beautiful story of friendship; particularly the positive and uplifting warmth it can provide in times of adversity. Although there is a dash of romance sprinkled throughout, the focus never strays too far from its original intent to show love blossoms in the most unlikeliest of places and it doesn’t have to be ‘romantic’ to be life…

The scripture for today, February 25, is Revelation 2:25 as found in the New Testament of the Bible:

"Only hold on to what you have until I come."

Several years ago my 91-year-old mother left this life. Some say that at the moment of death, one's life flashes before their eyes. In the case of my mother, at the moment of her death, her life flashed before…

For Love & Honor by Jody Hedlund

Set in the year 1391, with castles, Knights, and more, this story also has some thought provoking underlying ideas that translate to today's time.

Witch hunts were prevalent and bodily flaws or birth defects scared many people. The majority were superstitious and when a person was thought to be a witch, they were steered clear of for fear of having a spell cast on them. They even thought their possessions were cursed.

Lady Sabine was born with a large purple stain on one of her arms.… Continue

Down & Dead in Dallas by Vicki Hinze

I loved loved this series. I'm also a big fan of Vicki Hinze. Her books are always fast paced, romance, suspense, clean and her characters aren't afraid to show their faith in God. Even books that she writes that aren't listed as Christian fiction are good clean books.



Down & Dead in Dallas: think someone you know doesn't recognize you. What could have happened to her?…

Wanda Brunstetter's "The Seekers, The Amish Cooking Class"

The Seekers by author Wanda Brunstetter is another great Amish offering from a gifted author. This 320 page paperback novel published by Barbour is absolutely a page turner. I didn't want to do anything except read it from cover to cover.



This book has everything that I enjoy in Christian fiction. Author Wanda has included plenty of scripture in her book. There are inspirational messages dealing with love, forgiveness, values, respect, and redemption. The present day issues of PTSD,… Continue
