In the Shadow of Croft Towers: book review

In the Shadow of Croft Towers  a debut Gothic fiction novel by Abigail Wilson was not only captivating but thrilling at every turn.

Their Daring Hearts: book review and giveaway

Their Daring Hearts by Sharlene MacLaren was such a perfect book for me to read. I have a real interest in the Amish Faith and lifestyle, I have since teenagehood, and the Quaker elements to the story are just as interesting if not more so since I know less about the group. It’s also such a […]
