The Yellow Lantern by Angie Dicken

I had vaguely heard of grave robbing previously but this novel put a different spin on it. The opening chapter gave me chills as I learned the main character, Josephine Clayton, had been thought dead then buried. But she was dug up by grave robbers and brought to Dr. Chadwick. She awoke just as he was about to cut her open!Relentless for the money they made, the grave diggers or resurrectionists as they were sometimes called, even went so far as to help an ailing person on to their “reward”. It…See More

Jessie’s Hope by Jennifer Hallmark

After learning she was paralyzed and would live in a wheelchair the rest of her life, Jessie wished she would have died too. With her mother gone and abandoned by her father, Jessie felt like she was unloved and alone.

The Healing Jar

This is the third and final installment in the Prayer Jar series and a wonderful ending. Although, I love the characters so much I hope the author will consider another sequence later on. I really enjoyed getting to know each one, more in-depth with each story. Although wanting to get married and have children, Lenore Lapp has resigned herself to staying single and taking care of her aging grandparents. She even prays for God to remove the desire from her heart if it’s not to be. Besides…See More

Fragments of Fear by Carrie Stuart Parks

This was a quick read as all of Carrie Stuart Parks books are. I’m reading as fast as I can as the suspense and dangers increase. Lots of intricate happenings seemingly unrelated but are they tied up somehow? It starts out at a funeral that Evelyn McTavish is attending for her fiancé. She has been tied up in knots ever since her beloved grandmother died over a year ago. They were very close, much more so than her and her mother Helen. Whenever she finds herself in a stressful situation she…See More

A Family for Gracie by Amy Lillard

This is another wonderful heartfelt and emotional Amish story by Amy Lillard.  Gracie feels like she’s going into “Old Maid” status at age twenty six. Most Amish women get married much younger and already have children. And the pickings are slim in her community for an unmarried man. She makes a bold move and takes dinner to recently widowed Matthew and proposes. He initially is shocked but realizes he is at the end of his rope with a young baby and four rambunctious boys to take care of as…See More

Core 52 by Mark E. Moore

Core has many meanings in the dictionary but I found it to mean foundational in the title of this book. You will get a foundational understanding of God’s Holy Word. All it takes in this busy world we live in is fifteen minutes a day to read and study a chapter. Then in a year’s time you will have 52 lessons to help understand the Bible more. The first chapter starts with creation and chapter 52 ends with Heaven. In between are chapters covering fundamental ideas from the Bible such as: Knowing…See More

Dear Grandchild This Is Me. Waterbrook

Posted on September 5, 2019 at 5:17pm 0 Comments

I’ve seen and even purchased books similar to this one but the makeup and format of this one is by far my favorite. There is nothing better to leave your grandkids than your memories and life history. Such as my impressions seeing the moon landing live, watching news clips of the Vietnam war and the funeral of president John F Kennedy. How I met your Pop, high school events and favorite songs. There are envelopes throughout that can be used for special mementos or notes or letters to your…


An Amish Christmas Kitchen by Leslie Gould, Jan Drexler and Kate Lloyd

Posted on September 5, 2019 at 3:06pm 0 Comments

From three of the best Amish writers come a collection of three novellas that will get you in a mindset for celebrating Christmas a little early this year. All the characters in all three quickly won my heart, well maybe except for one...or maybe two...

All held family values and traditions close to their hearts. From selling baked goods at the local Christmas Market to supplement family finances to trying to win the heart of a secret crush with cookies, and trying to learn of the…


Whose Waves These Are by Amanda Dykes

Posted on August 30, 2019 at 7:04pm 0 Comments

This book was very special to me for many reasons. The stones that were sent to Bob included one that represented my father-in-Law that was included in the author’s acknowledgements. But stories that are written partly during the time of WWII are meaningful as well, the greatest generation of men and women. Brave souls that are due all the recognition and more.

The book characters were presented in a way that I cared for them as friends and neighbors. Annie, Bob, Roy, William and…

They discover that both their moms died while they were infants under questionable circumstances. Then is when strange and terrifying things begin to happen.

Ridge has always resented Harper because of the interest his father Oliver took in her. He thinks she is after his money. But after going from one foster family…
