Filled with great storytelling,…

Review of SISTERS OF MERCY FLATS by Lori Copeland

“It was only a matter of time before he caught on to the fact that she was posing as a nun, and the knowledge that she’d tricked him could agitate him so that he might leave her by the wayside. Far better to sit still and keep quiet,” Lori Copeland expresses in her book, Sisters of Mercy Flats.

Review of Play it Again by Tracy Krauss

The tension in Play it Again kept building and building until I thought there would be an explosion around the bend. While a number of elements in the story are common to romance novels, the author did such a great job putting them together and making the plot compelling. The setting, characters, and dialog brought me back to the 1980s, and parts of the story felt like…

Book Review - Forsaken Dreams

My first word for this review is “WOW!” I had already read some of MaryLu Tyndall's pirate stories and enjoyed them but this book was different. Not just a different time period and location but a different flavor to the story itself, one I really liked.

What Matters Most?

The following is an excerpt from I'm Too Human to be Like Jesus.


“Did you hear what happened to Ann? My friend Kathy asked. “Her house burned down yesterday and she lost everything. No one was hurt, fortunately, but all of Ann’s books, photo albums, personal mementos, her computer, and organ—everything is gone.”

My heart grieved…

Book Review - Sweet Mercy by Ann Tatlock

One of the best historical fiction books that I have read so far this year!

Ann Tatlock did such a wonderful job with Eve. She captured the in-between of being a 17 year girl perfectly, mature one moment and the next feeling like a little girl. Eve has a lot to learn…

Book Review - Reign by Ginger Garrett

Great Biblical fiction story with a little different view

I don't ordinarily read much for Biblical fiction but I have been expanding my reading in that direction. I wasn't sure how I would like a book where the main characters are, well, kind of the bad guys. Definitely not heroine and hero material. But I was pleasantly surprised, it fleshed out the Biblical account and made me look at…

Excellent biblical fiction

Set in the world of marbled palaces, dusty marketplaces, and idyllic Italian villas, Claudia, Wife of Pontius Pilate by Diana Wallis Taylor is excellent biblical fiction that combines impeccable research and a flair for drama and romance. Claudia, a woman who warrants only a passing mention in one of the Gospel accounts, is brought to life in this story of…

Review of A Love Surrendered by Julie Lessman

Time: 1932, Boston, Ma. Prohibition was about to be repealed by the 18th Amendment. Some concerns of that era…prohibition, politics, war and as in any year, belief in God. The young crowd wanted good times and were expert lawbreakers to do so. Times were hard….and that’s not exactly what Julie Lessman’s story is about…but difficult times there were.

A Love…
