To Follow Her Heart by Rebecca DeMarino is the third and final book in the Southold Chronicles. The story loosely follows the history of the author's family as they settled Long Island in the 1600's. This novel focuses on Patience Terry and her longing to marry Jeremy Horton sea captain. I love the way Ms. DeMarino brings history to life. Her love of history is quite evident in all of the small details and I really enjoyed the recipes she included. I also enjoyed the scripture that she…Continue

Any fans of Upstairs Downstairs, or Downton Abbey will love The Governess of Highland Hall. Carrie Turansky has created a very believable cast of characters.

Julia Foster, recently a missionary in India, has returned to England…

James is recovering from the brutal murder of his wife , Angela, and the loss of the breakthrough she had just made, but not shared. Melody is…

I am a great fan of Al Lacy's Journey of the Stranger and I must say I enjoyed George Mcvey's Redeeming Reputation every bit as much as Lacy's books.I think that Nathen Ryder is a hero in the best tradition of the western novel...He will either lead you to Christ or help you along your way to Hell with the help of his quick draw.

I wish there was a sequel to this book. I loved the characters of Rebecca and Seth. When I first heard of an Amish story with crop circles and aliens, I thought well this can't work. But I was presently surprised by Marlayne Giron's story. She did a wonderful job of making the story plausible. I look forward to reading more books by Marlayne. Her story evoked many emotions and I have to admit at times I needed a kleenex. So do yourself a favor and settle in for a good read.
