Book Review: The Promise of Dawn

From the Back:

In a Compelling New Saga, One Family Strives to Make Their Own Future
Opportunities are scarce in Norway, so when Rune and Signe Carlson receive a letter from Rune's uncle, Einar Strand, offering to loan them money for passage to America, Rune accepts. Signe is reluctant to leave her home, especially as she is pregnant with her fourth child, but Einar promises to give them land of their own, something they could never afford in Norway.

But life in Minnesota is more difficult than Signe imagined. Uncle Einar and Aunt Gerd are hard, demanding people, and Signe and her family soon find themselves worked nearly to the bone to pay off their debt. Afraid they will never have the life they dreamed of, she begins to lose her trust in God. When the dangers of the North Woods strike close to home, will she find the strength she needs to lead her family into the promise of a new dawn?
My Reflections:
The Promise of Dawn is book one in the "Under Northern Skies" series a fantastic coming to America novel! 
This book highlights the struggles immigrants often faced when coming to a new country. Hard labor and cruel treatment are no strangers to the people of the "new land." 

On April 1909 Signe Carlson received a letter that changes her life forever. The decision is made, and Signe, Rune and their three sons travel all the way to America from Norway. The land is much different, and Minnesota is not quite what this small family expected. 

Relatives Einar and Gerd Strand have the agreement that travel expenses will be paid back in return for labor on the farm. However, this deal turns out to be more than the family bargained for. Hard work was a way of life in Norway, but the back-breaking labor of clearing the land of pine trees leads to accidents and near exhaustion, not to mention the unbending harsh treatment by Einer and Gerd.
I was so saddened by the treatment of these so-called relatives, no one especially family should ever treat each other in this horrid fashion!

Snelling does not disappoint with her newest historical fiction! The heart rendering drama reminds us of the sheer strength, and fortitude immigrants overcame to come to a new land. The plight of the Carlson's in much like many other stories, and I am glad to have had the chance to review this one. Though not a true story many immigrants faces harsh journeys and many perished along the way. I love reading books that remind us of how blessed we are to live in our beautiful countries! I can't wait for book two to be released!

Book Review: Freedom's Price

From The Back Of The Book:

Sometimes the hardest step to take is the first step forward
When Englishwoman Catherine Haynes loses both her father and her home in 1856, she decides to cross the Atlantic to find her American mother's family in Louisiana. She enlists the help of Tom Worthington, a dashing Key West man who makes his living salvaging wrecked ships.

When Catherine arrives at the plantation, she finds that her family has left it in the care of a manager--who's let it fall into disrepair. Torn between returning to Key West with Tom and beginning the hard work of restoring the plantation, Catherine soon finds herself snared in a plot to steal her inheritance. When an incredible secret comes to light, both she and Tom will face a choice: grip their dreams ever tighter or step forward in faith--even if it costs them everything.
My Reflections:
Freedom's Price is book three in the "Key's of Promis," series, and although it is a series I feel it can indeed be read as a stand-alone. This book had me from the first pages. Clocked in danger, mystery and a smattering of romance, this book has all the earmarks of a best seller!

Catherine Haynes flees from her childhood home when her cousin makes unsatisfactory decisions for her future. Traveling from England to Louisiana is no small feat, especially for a young woman. When the boat she is aboard is damaged by a storm, she becomes acquainted with a particular handsome Salvage wrecker, Tom Worthington. While waiting in Key West, she is able to ascertain that Tom's character is as appealing as his appearance. When the opportunity presents itself, Catherine finds a passage to her American mothers estranged home at Black Oak plantation. Tom insists on escorting Catherine, even if it means losing his hard-earned position as a wrecker. Upon arrival will she be welcomed or will dark and ominous secrets be harbored within Black Oak's confines?

Tom has his own dark past, and although he finds Catherine to be intriguing and his heart is definitely attracted to her spirited character, Tom has other reasons as to why he wants to accompany Catherine. Tom desperately wants to avenge his father's untimely death and get his father's boat back. Catherine may just be the person to lead him to the devious stranger with the unusual scar marring his face.

This book was so emotionally charged and raw, It had me anchored to it until the very end. I so enjoyed the historical background and found myself researching "wreckers," so compelling! Johnson does a fantastic job of making her characters relatable and the plot irresistible! The dark evil villain seriously sent chills through me! I am looking forward to Johnson's next book, she is now on my favorite author's list. 
Certainly, a must read!

Book Review: Fault Lines

From the Back:

What if reality is only the edge of possibility?

There isn't much that can throw Charlie Hazard off balance. But the mystery woman with the striking eyes and the intense request to follow her--now--is about to shake his world. Knowing little more than her name, Charlie leaves his post as a guard at the Satellite Beach community center for what he thinks is just another risk-containment job. But Gabriella, an experimental psychologist, has far more in store for him than protection duty--if the two of them survive the test.

Reese Clawson relishes her work at the Combine and all the perks and power that come with it--including the ability to manipulate perceptions. But the Combine never anticipated this mind-shifting technology. If Gabriella's experiments succeed, the Combine would be destroyed. And Reese will never allow that to happen.
My Reflections:
Thomas Locke is one in the same as award-winning Davis Bunn. I didn't know this when I ordered this book to review, so I found this to be an interesting fact! Another interesting tidbit is that Locke/Bunn writes differently under this pen name, his faith base is toned down under Locke. I wonder why, interesting? 
This is book one in the series which actually is book three, chronologically. I know confusing right? 
This techno-thriller will certainly keep your attention and the fast-paced plot will keep these pages burning hot, as you madly dash to the final word. 

I do have to say this type of subject matter is not usually my thing, can you say quantum physics.. um, yes if you know me this kind of talk would have me running, and fast! But that being said it was written in a cleverly simple manner and even I was able to understand it all.

Charlie Hazard is a risk containment specialist who finds his world turned upside down by a beautifully mysterious woman who pleads for assistance in a dangerous mission. will he accept, or will his common sense prevail?
Charlie is everything a hero should be, strong, handsome, steadfast and intense! 

If you are looking for something a little different, a little science fiction, a little romance and a lot action this may be your next fiction pick!

Book Review: Friends, Partners and Lovers

From the Back:

Great marriages don't just happen--they're made, intentionally, day by day.

The number one cause of divorce isn't adultery or finances or disagreements. It's apathy--a lack of intentional emotional, physical, and mental investment in the relationship. It's forgetting that as a husband or wife you have three distinct roles: friend, partner, and lover.

With engaging stories and clear, simple language, pastor Kevin A. Thompson shows how to live out those roles. Using solid biblical principles, he helps you and your spouse grow your friendship, be supportive partners through the good times and the bad, and develop a healthy and satisfying sex life.

Whether you are starry-eyed in love or struggling to make it work, this book will show you how to keep your marriage healthy, strong, and fulfilling.
My Reflections:
With divorce rates ever increasing, I think it essential to continue to work on your marriage no matter if you are engaged or married for 50 years. Marriage is a continuum that is ever changing and quite frankly a full-time job! Don't get me wrong I love being married, have been since 1994, but Love is and always will be a choice. It is not automatic and second nature. At least it isn't for me, perhaps I am an oddity!  I am still happily married, and on the day of our wedding (me at 19), I heard all kinds of bets about how long they thought the union would last. I'm happy to say I married the man of my dreams! It's a choice, folks!

About Kevin Thompson's book Friends, Partners, and Lovers, Thompson offers up a buffet of guidance and practical, no-nonsense approach to making marriage successful.
I found this book easy to read, as it is well laid out and written in an inspiring manner. It is not overly preachy and very gender balanced. Of course, every book like this needs to start in the Lovers section, wink, wink. (it is the last section in the index.)
This book is well-written, and although I didn't find new information, I think it would be a good read for couples who are in need of counsel or in new relationships. Other topics include Part 1: Friend, Part 2 Partner and lastly part 3 Lover.

Overall this is a fantastic book to give to newlyweds or to have in the church library. A great reminder to us long wed folks and a great tool to open up conversations between husband and wife.

Book Review: Doing Busy Better

From the Back:

"I know what it means to have Jesus set me free from stress and striving. If that's what you long for too, Glynnis is here to help. Her words are a lifeline for the worn-out and weary."--Holley GerthWall Street Journal bestselling author of You're Already Amazing


Does this sound familiar? When you're busy, you feel guilty you aren't spending time with family or God. Then, when you try to rest, you feel guilty because there's so much left to do. It's an endless cycle of overwork and exhaustion.

Enough is enough! In this burden-lifting book, Glynnis Whitwer helps you examine your heart and your schedule in order to seek a healthy, holy, and enjoyable balance between work and rest. She shows you how to prioritize your goals and your time, how to be present in the moment as Jesus was, and how to find the freedom of true soul rest. Most importantly, she shows you that your worth is found not in your accomplishments but in the love of the One who made you for work and for rest.
My Reflections:
Glynnis Whitwer offers sound advice on our often overwhelmed and busy lives. This author delves into who we are in Christ and helps us remember that what we do is not "who we are." I really resonated with how she described that God sees us as his children. What we think we should be doing or what others perceive us to be, is not of consequence. God's identity for us is already set, he already know's who we are and doing more and being more will not change who he knows us to be. 

 I love that I can give my day to God and just follow his lead. Is helping with GEMS, running my own small business and constantly running kids to the next activity what he wants me to be doing with my precious time? Possibly, but when we take the time to really evaluate our lives and look at it from an eternity perspective, things tend to take on a slightly adjusted priority level. We are given rest, we don't have to madly dash from one thing to another without...rest... Oh, how my heart needed to hear this simple concept. I always feel guilty when I rest, like I am supposed to always be on. That is so unhealthy!

This book helped me realize the destructive path of doing more and accomplishing little. Glynnis shares her heart and struggles with business and taking the time to rest, I loved how she backed up her statements with biblical evidence and wisdom. 
This book touches on an area every woman can relate to, a must read for all of us!

Book Review: The Return

From The Back:

In a wild country, the true cost of love may be more than they can bear
Beautiful and winsome, Betsy Zook never questioned her family's rigid expectations, nor those of devoted Hans--but then she never had to. Not until the night she's taken captive in a surprise Indian raid. Facing brutality and hardship, Betsy finds herself torn between her pious upbringing and the feelings she's developing for a native man who encourages her to see God in all circumstances.

Greatly anguished by Betsy's captivity, Hans turns to Tessa Bauer for comfort. She responds eagerly, overlooking troubling signs of Hans's hunger for revenge. But if Betsy is ever restored to the Amish, will things between Hans and Tessa have gone too far?

Inspired by true events, this deeply layered novel gives a glimpse into the tumultuous days of prerevolutionary Pennsylvania through the eyes of two young, determined, and faith-filled women.
My Reflections:
Suzanne Woods Fisher has once again penned a deeply touching and entertaining story. Amish fiction has been taken to a completely new level with "The Return." This novel is based on real-life events that took place early in our history, it delves into the challenges of settling in a new land, and the joys and sorrows of all involved this process.

I think I really connected with the characters, setting, and plot I found that I didn't want this book to end! I absolutely loved how Woods Fisher penned with absolute attention to detail, the historical aspect of this book is exquisitely written.

Hans has to deal with the aftermath of loosing his fiance, Betsy in an Indian attack. His anger and resentment are eating him up inside, will he be able to forgive and possibly start a life with Tessa?

All Tessa has ever dreamed about in a partner is none other than Hans, strong, capable and oh so attractive. Unfortunately, his heart seems stuck on the perfect yet absent Betsy. Will she be able to get Hans attention now that Betsy is gone? Guilt and desire are at war in Tessa's young life, yet she seems unable to control her wayward feelings.

Betsy being held captive by the natives is torn between her love for her upbringing and a new found "family." Although things are hard Betsy finds a new normal and starts to develop a relationship with a caring and compassionate native man. Will she ever be reunited with her brothers and her family?

I so enjoyed how this novel shows all sides of the characters involved. We see a glimpse of the different native tribes and how they were structured, one a warring tribe the other a peaceful community. Also, we meet a traditional Amish family, a Mennonite family, and the other resident settlers it is quite the mix of characters and plot lines which makes for a realistic and entertaining read!

If you are looking for a moving novel with an action-packed plot, "The Return" may just be what you are looking for!

Book Review: The Two of Us

From the Back:

"...a satisfying and uplifting read."--RT Book Reviews on Someone Like You
After two broken engagements, Mia Robinson is done with dating. From now on, she's focusing on God and her goal to join an international aid organization as a nurse practitioner. But when her 18-year-old sister, Lucy, calls with an invitation to her Vegas wedding, it throws a wrench into Mia's plans.

Jake Tanner has recovered from the injuries he sustained as a police officer--on the outside. Inside, he's yet to heal from losing his partner in the tragedy, but finds some solace in keeping an eye on her young adult son, Sam, who's asked him to be best man at his wedding.

Mia expects a mess when she arrives to sort out the situation with Lucy, but she wasn't expecting Jake, who views the marriage a little differently. As Jake's and Mia's lives slowly become more intertwined, could his courage and her caring heart be enough to bring them a lifetime of healing?
My Reflections:
Initially, I thought this was just another love story, but Victoria Bylin's newest novel "The Two of Us" is so much more. This novel deals with some deep issues and I would save this one for more mature readers, I will not be passing this one to my 15-year-old to read. 

Mia was abandoned by her father as a child and raised in an economically challenged home. This character had plenty to overcome, the losses were insurmountable, but Mia leaned on her faith to get by. Now as an adult will her past baggage bog her life down, or can she shed the weight and float into her future?

This story is about finding one's self and trusting in the process. I love how the character Jake was able to get through to Mia and really help her trust again. He was just the person she needed at just the right time, strong and dependable, a perfect hero!

This novel had a fast tempo, so as a reader I never felt a lag. The plot moved along with ease and kept me flipping through until well past my bedtime. If you are looking for a novel with romance, depth and good character development "The Two Of Us" might just be your next read!

Book Review: A Bride Most Begrudging

From The Back Cover:

They agreed to a marriage of convenience . . .
Virginia Colony, 1643. Taken prisoner on a ship departing England, Lady Constance Morrow is nearly unrecognizable by the time she arrives in the colonies aboard a ship carrying goods and "tobacco brides." Farmer Drew O'Connor is seeking not a wife but a maid to tend his house and care for his young sister. Still, after an unusual series of events, he is all but forced to marry the feisty redhead, who claims to be the daughter of an earl and wants to go back to England.

But nothing about this situation is convenient, least of all their attraction to each other.
Both headstrong and determined, Drew and Constance seem to be in perpetual disagreement about her expected responsibilities and her unconventional ideas, but there is a fiery energy between them that refuses to be denied. However, Drew made a promise, and he will honor it . . . even if it means sending her home.

My Reflections:

What an endearing novel! 
I very much enjoyed traveling back in time to 1643 and exploring the Colonial life. 

Although this is rated as a Christian novel I would certainly not hand it over to my Teenager. The sexual tension is high in this book and although the writer does not allow the reader into the bedroom, the suggestion and foreplay are quite steamy for a Christian story.
Since I am an adult I was perfectly fine with the level of intimacy, I don't think that it crossed the line, just tread quite closely. Some readers may find it too much.

Lady Morrow Constance finds herself in a precarious situation when visiting her Uncle aboard a ship filled with prisoners and indentured slaves headed for the Americas. No matter that she snuck onto said ship and most certainly a lady has no right to be anywhere near this level of danger! 

Being held prisoner, with no choices left to her, Constance makes it to the colonies, only to find herself sold to a horrendous man. Luckily for her, he looses the possession of her in a ridiculous card game! 
Drew O'Connor want's nothing to do with women, his heart can't take another person dear to him dying in this brutal land he calls home. He will do just about anything to keep himself aloof from the opposite sex.  

God always has a backup plan however and due to the laws of the land both Constance and Drew must wed... Drew doesn't desire a wife, and Constance just wants to go back home! What a pair!

While I very much enjoyed this story there were a few points to consider. How on earth did a beautiful girl make it through the entire journey with her virtue intact? Also, the mathematical thread was quite dull. anyone who knows me can attest that you start talking numbers and I tune you out. I also found the switch in the style of speaking to be offsetting. One time we are speaking in the era, the next modern day. It made for a slightly choppy read.

Overall I loved this story, and read it in record time! The plot was enjoyable and engaging, the characters flawed and spunky.
I am very much hoping that Deeanne Gist will be writing a sequel especially on the life of Drew's Brother, Josh. The story ends without really delving into this broody brother's future to a satisfying end.
Want an interesting read? This may just be your next book!

Book Review: Egypt's Sister



From The Back Cover:



You Don't Know Her Name. The World Remembers Only Her Greatest Friend: Cleopatra.Raised together in the Alexandrian palace, Chava, the Hebrew daughter of the royal tutor, and Urbi, an Egyptian princess, become as close as sisters--and rivals with their dreams of greatness. When Urbi unexpectedly ascends the throne as Queen Cleopatra, Chava believes their bond is strong enough to survive. But absolute power has a way of changing everything.

The ultimate betrayal rips Chava from everything she's ever known and sends her to the lowest rung of Roman society where she must choose between love and honor, between her own desires and God's will for her life, if she hopes to rise again.

My Reflections:

Ah... Angela Hunt! Need I say more? 

From the beautiful cover to the last page turned this book is sure to please the most decerning readers. I absolutely love Biblical fiction and this book certainly fed my literary addiction.

I can't say I remember reading a book that centered on the character of Cleopatra (other than school text books of course!) This story intrigued me and made me want to dive back into those said text books again,( I'm sure I can fit that into this year's curriculum for my homeschooled kids!)

Told through the royal daughter's tutor, Chava it makes for an interesting read.
Chava has a good life, she is safe and sheltered from the realities of the Ptolemy family line. Best of all Chava's closest friend is Princess Urbi, the future Queen Cleopatra.

In a blink of an eye, Chava's whole world changes, she is stripped of her family, status, and home. Chava finds herself the lowest of low..a slave with no rights or say. Holding on to a long ago promise from God, she struggles to endure her new reality.  

I so enjoyed the history of this novel, at points, it can become a little heavy, but not so much that you forget you are enjoying the story. I'm sure it is hard to fill in all the historical detail without relaying the back story.

If you are looking for a novel to take you away to a faraway land this may just be the book you are looking for!

Book Review: Beloved Hope

From The Back:

Shackled by Her Past, One Woman Searches for Healing, Forgiveness, and Love
Hope Flanagan survived the massacre at the Whitman Mission, but at terrible personal cost. Safe now in Oregon City, the gentle rhythm of tending her family's flock of sheep is slowly healing her mind and soul, but her precarious new peace is shattered when Hope is asked to testify against the Cayuse responsible for the massacre. She's not sure she can bear to relive the events of those horrific days, but neither can she risk her attackers being released if she doesn't tell her story. 
As Hope struggles to make her choice, an Army lieutenant named Lance Kenner becomes an unexpected ray of light in her life. Perhaps she is still capable of love after all. But will Lance still want her if he learns the whole truth of what happened to her at the mission? Or are the secrets that lie in his own past more troubling?

My Reflections:

This is the second book in the Heart of the Frontier series and follows Hope Flanagan the middle sister of the family. 
The story moves along nicely picking up where it left off in book one.
In the last book "Treasured Grace" the story centers on the eldest sister Grace, who struggles with the aftermath of an attack at the mission.

It is so nice to become acquainted with the characters from the previous book and the introduction to additional characters along the line. 

Hope has survived the traumatic attack but just because she is alive doesn't mean she is ready to fully live. 
Trust and safety remain huge hurdles to overcome for Hope, particularly if it includes the men in her life. Hope's future seems limited indeed. Trying to forget the past she immerses herself in her role in the family, living with her sister, brother in law and younger sister, Hope tends to the lambs with dedication and focus. Can she overcome her fears? Will Hope ever be whole and healed?

Lance is a man in need of some healing as well, but he has to admit it first. New to town, working at the Jail, he is waiting to be released from the military. Lance fully expects to fulfill his families expectations and take his place in the family law practice, that is until he gets entwined into a certain woman's life. Can these two let go of their painful past and move into a future together?

This story captivated my attention, and although some parts were slower moving than others I was quite satisfied with the plot and character development. I am looking forward to book number three, set to be released in September of this year (2017) called Cherished Mercy!
