The Lost Castle by Kristy Cambron

This was a very interesting novel set in France with three different time periods. 1789 during the French Revolution, 1944 during WWII, and present day. Each chapter relayed the particular time period to keep you informed. The going between time periods wasn't a problem for me but what did occasionally confuse me was that a time period might be represented at a certain time and then the next time it was picked up might go back in time itself. I found myself referring back to previous chapters…See More

The Hawaiian Discovery by Wanda and Jean Brunstetter

I enjoyed my second "trip to Hawaii". Although The Hawaiian Discovery is a sequel to The Hawaiian Quilt, the authors fill in enough background that you can enjoy this novel as a standalone. But I would highly encourage you not to miss the first one either.It was good to be able to catch up with Ellen, Mandy and other characters that have seemed like friends. Ellen has been working at the Bed and Breakfast in her hometown that Mandy and her husband Ken own. But when Ken's father suffers a heart…See More

Together Forever, Orphan Train Book 2 by Jody Hedlund

Together Forever - Orphan Train Book 2, is another winner by Jody Hedlund. She writes wonderful historical novels. I know when I'm reading one of hers that actual events and characters may be included, that's why I always read the author's notes in the back of the book. She researches her topic well so that the actual facts of history are accurate. It's a great way to learn in among the fiction. It's not absolutely imperative that you read book one, With You Always, to enjoy this one but…See More

Falling for You by Becky Wade

The cover on this book has drawn me in from the very first time I saw it. It's one of my very favorites and clearly brought out as a part in the book. Some covers are random and don't really follow the story but I was pleased to find the reference to Willow's appearance in the actual plot.No matter how perfect someone's life seems, how rich they are, how wonderful their careers seem, life gets in the way and things can become very messy. This Bradford Sister's Romance #2, hones in on Willow,…See More

The Amish Quilter by Mindy Starns Clark & Leslie Gould

This book touched me in a very personal way. Except for the being Amish part, I found my younger self relating to Linda and her idealized ideas of how her life should be. Linda was certain she was doing what she thought God wanted for her life but she really wasn't playing close attention to him. Lives aren't perfect, life can get very messy and nothing is ever ideal. God works with our idealistic ideas and uses others to help us really see what is what. I enjoyed the creative aspect of the…See More

Where Hope Begins by Catherine West

Posted on June 14, 2018 at 5:09pm 0 Comments

This was as close to real life as you can get in a fiction novel. The characters experienced true to life situations that had me gripping my iPad and tissues at the same time. Savannah had so many issues to deal with specially not feeling loved by her husband. The author showed how vital true communication is to the life of a marriage. Savannah and her husband Kevin had skirted around their problems and issues with never really taking the time to listen and try to understand each other. How…

Facade by Pepper Basham

Posted on June 14, 2018 at 4:53pm 0 Comments

enjoy reading stories about WWII, partly because my father in law served in the navy during that time and was involved in the Normandy invasion. But I also like to read about the bravery and sacrifices so many made. Facade, though fiction, brings out some of those qualities. This was a different side of the German takeover of France. Four British pilots had been captured and held prisoner in a secret location. One was the brother of the heroine, Livy. She must try and save Charlie if it's at…
