I am always eager to have the chance to review a devotional or a Bible study guide and I can't begin to describe my appreciation of Unexplainable Jesus, a new 8-week Bible study of the New Testament book Luke. Rediscovering the God You Thought You Knew is the subtitle and author Erica Wiggenhorn shares eight "unexplainable topics" to help us understand the true Jesus. The eight chapters of this book are titled Unexplainable Beginnings, Unexplainable Birth, Unexplainable Introductions,…Continue

PTSD, depression, anxiety and suicidal urges are some of the serious issues in Living Lies and the author suggests that our society can harshly judge people who suffer from these illnesses. In this new book Natalie Walters has created several characters with mental health problems who become part of a serious crime. The suspense revolves around the unsolved murder of a teenage girl in Walton, Georgia and the assumption that she was killed by a former soldier who had served in Vietnam. Lane…Continue

The King's Mercy can be labeled an epic historical read for more than one reason--it is 388 pages long and it is a story filled with lots of descriptive detail and numerous historical facts surrounding life in the mid 1700s! From the moment that Scotsman Alex MacKinnon is granted mercy from hanging and handed a seven year sentence to be an indentured servant there is unlimited excitement and drama. Through the author's vivid descriptions I felt like I was traveling with Alex to North…Continue

Before reading this book I was vaguely familiar with the story of Georgia Tann and the Tennessee Children's Home Society but I had no concept of the evil that occurred in this agency over the course of 26 years. There were over five thousand children kidnapped during that time for the sole purpose of being sold to the highest bidder. Parents in Memphis had to make sure that their children weren't left alone because of this dangerous woman who wasn't above kidnapping a child as they walked…Continue

I found these three stories to be heartwarming and fun being written by family members. Wanda Brunstetter authored Deanna’s Determination. Deanna, a member of the white top buggy community, lost her husband through an accident and is trying to raise her young son by herself. Her husband’s best friend is determined to help her all he can until an accident befalls him.
Wanda’s daughter in law, Jean Brunstetter, wrote Rose Mary’s Resolve. Rose Mary belongs to the black top buggy community…

I love reading the author’s notes on the background of a novel and this fictional story has lots of real facts and happenings included. History is so much more interesting learned this way. My eyes were opened to the poverty and slum areas of London around 1862. My heart broke for Mercy and how she had to live. The love she never received for herself she gave willingly to those around her in need. From helping those sick to begging for stale bread from a baker to share with the orphans on…Continue

"This wasn't how Abby imagined she'd arrive at her future husband's manor, with a baby on her shoulder, a criminal tied up at the back of the carriage, and the man she loved bleeding to death on the seat next to her."
Until now, Abigail Gilbert's life had been very similar to Cinderella's story. She had been badly treated by her stepmother but she believed that her life would change for the better when she was able to leave her unhappy past and marry the rich bachelor who was…
