When God Made You: a children’s book review

Finding a children’s book that is this beautifully written and reflectively illustrated is a rare treat.  I not only love the quality of the  product and the vivid, colorful printing;  but even more importantly the story of self-assurance, sense of self and others, and the truth that we are loved by God. This book is […]

The Cherished Quilt: A book review

The Cherished Quilt by Amy Clipston is a story filled with family, Faith, messy relationships, and complicated people. I’ve read the others in the  Amish Heirloom Novel series and this one did not disappoint. I love that each story can run completely independent of each other and yet there’s some beautiful connections between them. I […]

  All Summer Long by Melody Carson was a perfect summer read.  Filled with summer festivities, boat rides, and excellent food I found my reading appetite satiated with this fun story.  A simple story line with some delightful characters.

I devoured this book. I needed a good Fiction read, and I knew it. I realized all the non fiction I had been reading was beginning to blur together in my mind. Not only did I love the story as a whole but I LOVED the characters individually. I was worried since I began the […]

A Sound Among the Trees: Book Review

Good news…. In our recent move I discovered several books that I should have read and reviewed eons ago, but they had been misplaced (that was the bad news – OOOPS). I recently reviewed “ The Miner’s Lady” and next turned to this refreshing fictional novel by Susan Meissner. If I had been told it […]

The Miner's Lady: Book Review

At the start of the new year my husband googled “how to become a voracious reader.” A self proclaimed “non–reader” he wanted to develop a new habit in the new year.  Let me tell you this… in the 8 (or 9) years we’ve been together I’ve never seen him read a book cover to cover […]
