Priscilla's Escape by Diane Craver

I throughly enjoyed getting to know the characters in this novel. They could easily be friends of mine in real life. The Amish have all different groups over different parts of this country with different rules. Some groups are more strict than others. Priscilla was facing the big decision of whether to join her Amish church in which her father was bishop. She is not 100% sure she is ready to commit. When an opportunity comes available for Priscilla to work for an English lady as her child's…

A Secret to Die For by Lisa Harris

From the very first word on the very first page I was held in the gripping tale of break-ins, murder, and computer hackers. The story was fast paced and a real late into the night, page turner. I have yet to be disappointed in a story by author Lisa Harris.

The two main characters, psychologist Grace and detective Nate, each had traumas of their own from the past that had "crippled" them. Grace unwittingly got drawn into this national crime because of a client of hers. Danger lurked…

The Christmas Prayer by Wanda Brunstetter

This story sounded familiar, so after investigating I discovered that it released in 2014 in The Westward Christmas Brides Collection. I had read it previously but re-read it to refresh my memory.

In April 1850, three wagons head to California from Missouri. Cynthia is in one wagon with her mother and the man she has promised to marry. Only she doesn't love him. She only wants financial security for her mother and herself. Another wagon holds a brother and sister and another a widowed…

Ours for a Season by Kim Vogel Sawyer

This was a lovely and inspirational story. I cried several times throughout and felt deep joy other times. This was a very emotional ride. The characters were so real and I grew to care about them and what happened to them. The subject of human trafficking and homeless teenagers was brought to the forefront and was very heart wrenching. It also was inspiring to the point of wanting to see what the situation is in my own community.

Marty, a Mennonite wife, has been unable to conceive in…

What Blooms from Dust by James Markert

This was the third book I've read by James Markert. Although there was some "weird" things going on like in the other two books, I think this one made more sense in the long run. I had read other books on the dust bowl that hit the Midwest in the thirties, but this expanded it even more. Parts of the book were like Biblical plagues hitting the town of Nowwhere, Oklahoma. Interestingly from chapter one until the "epilogue" was only a week and a half. It seemed to span a much longer period of…
