I Love to Tell the Story by Susan Barnett Braun

I absolutely loved this! It was almost like reading my own story and brought back some great memories. Each chapter begins with the words to a song and I found myself singing as I read them. Some were old hymns I grew up with and miss today as our church does the praise song thing. Susan tells of her experiences in her church from her earliest memories through high school graduation. I related to so much of her story except for the fact that my parents did not attend church. I hitched a ride…See More

Mending Fences by Suzanne Woods Fisher

When I looked at the cover and the title, Mending Fences, I got a whole different idea of what the story was really about. Actually Luke had fence mending to do that included sincere apologies, introspection and forgiveness. Unlike the typical Amish I’ve read about, Luke was an alcoholic that had been in rehab three times. After his third release he was invited to live at an older couples farm in his community. He got lots of cold shoulders and snubbing. But his stipulation for staying was to…See More

Ladies of Intrigue by Michelle Griep

These three novellas span three time periods, 1815, 1862, and 1890. The three ladies in each of the stories had several things in common but the strongest was their spunk. They were strong, opinionated women especially for their time periods. The Gentleman Smuggler’s Lady started out with a bang. Smuggler’s boarded the ship as it came into shore and Helen was right in the middle of it. She was on a mission to care for her ailing father. So how does it all tie in to her care of her father and…See More

Leaving Darkness by Greg Shaffer

The initial description caught my eye. Lowell, a long haul truck driver, is in a dark place. He carries a bottle of pills in his pocket and is almost constantly feeling for them. He is thinking of suicide to end his meaningless life. The only reason he hasn’t followed through is because of his little dog Rufus. Rufus has a tumor that could be cancer. If he dies Lowell does not know any reason to go on with his own life.Lowell grabbed my heart and pulled many times. He has deep issues troubling…See More

Far Side of the Sea

Posted on March 6, 2019 at 7:16pm 0 Comments

I always enjoy trying to find out where the title of a book comes from and this one had a double meaning. My favorite meaning is from scripture, Psalm 139:9-10. I also like real history depicted in a fiction novel. It makes learning more fun and the author did her homework. Most interesting to me was the fact that pigeons were trained and used as secret message carriers during WWI, and in doing so saved many lives.

This begins in France, 1918, at the tail end of the war. Colin Mabry…

Of Fire and Lions by Mesu Andrews

Posted on March 6, 2019 at 6:30pm 0 Comments

It is is interesting to imagine what conversations might have gone on between the people in the Bible in their everyday lives. And though my imagination is not that inspiring, the author, Mesa Andrews does a great job in this novel. Each chapter begins with a scripture that goes along with what is happening. I appreciated how the story followed the actual events from the Bible.

Daniel and his friends Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego along with other strong captives were exiled to Babylon.…
