REVIEW OF THE HIGH CALLING OF MOTHERHOOD BY CHIMENE SHIPLEY DUPLER

I was blessed to receive an advanced PDF copy of Chimene Shipley Dupler’s book, The High Calling of Motherhood. When I read the bio about Chimene at the beginning of the book, describing her as a “well-respected speaker and professional on marriage and parenting”, and then learned that she is the founder of a national organization entitled Passion4Moms, I expected some heavy psychological reading.Boy, was I wrong! Chimene has a delightful way of speaking to the heart of moms in a straight…See More

Review of The Haunted Realm by Emilyann Girdner

This is the second book in the Obsidian series, written by Emilyann Girdner. Araina, a girl in her late teens who has escaped from Segment One of the labyrinth in which she was created, discovers there is more to life than simply fighting for survival.I saw a considerable amount of symbolism in this story as Araina develops a deeper awareness of her emotional self.
