A Poignant Reminder That We Can Trust the Author of Our Stories

Stories. They are all around us, and while we each possess our own unique story, they all have something in common. . . They are all part of the greatest story ever told – God’s story. With warmth and wisdom, husband-and-wife author team Robert Wolgemuth and Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth help us embrace and believe that the title of their new book is true for us all: “You Can Trust God to Write Your Story: Embracing the Mysteries of Providence”.

A Beautiful 2-in-1 Cookbook and Devotional

Asheritah Ciuciu is an author of many talents – so much so that her new book is really two books in one: a cookbook and a devotional! “Bible & Breakfast: 31 Mornings with Jesus” is a lovely hardcover book from Moody Publishers with dozens of full-color food photographs and recipes, plus it is a multi-use devotional. Continue reading

A Terrific Start to the “Hearts of Montana” Series – Guest Review by Hayley

“Hope’s Highest Mountain” is the first in the new “Hearts of Montana” series, and what a start it was!

I loved the adventurous nature of the story… you’re bound to run into adventure when trekking through the mountains for weeks on end!  One unique aspect of this book is that for the majority of the story, there are only four characters!  Yet it is never boring, which must mean that this author is truly talented. Continue reading

Not the Conclusion I Had Hoped For… Guest Review by Hayley

“What Comes My Way” is Tracie Peterson’s third and final instalment of the “Brookstone Brides” series.  This entire trilogy has taken reader on a unique look behind the scenes of a wild west show, following trick riders, sharp shooters and more! Continue reading

The Best Book in the “Haven Manor” Series (and that’s saying a lot!)

I adore Kristi Ann Hunter’s stories, and her newest novel may be my favorite yet! “A Pursuit of Home” is the final installment in the “Haven Manor” series, but it is also very closely related to the “Hawthorne House” books (Ms Hunter’s first series). This means in a single novel she not only concludes an already-unforgettable series, but she ties both of her series together in a way that feels perfect and natural. Now that is talent! Continue reading

A Captivating Start to a New Wilderness Series

“When Strangers Intrude on Three Wild Sisters’ Hidden Mountain Life, Their World Will Never Be the Same.”

You can always count on Mary Connealy for an entertaining story filled with unique characters caught up in a captivating (and slightly unlikely!) adventure – and her new series fulfills these expectations perfectly. Continue reading

Julie Klassen’s New Mystery is Like the Board Game of “Clue” Come to Life!

Julie Klassen is an author of many talents! From cozy tales of village life to mysteries filled with suspense, this lady’s writing is always stellar and keeps you hooked from the first page. Her newest story, “The Bridge to Belle Island”, is actually a murder mystery set in Regency England that tells a uniquely compelling tale guaranteed to keep her readers – and her characters, too! – guessing until the very end. I kept thinking I knew how things would unfold, and I kept being completely wrong. Continue reading

An Unforgettable Story of Grace

I had no idea what I was missing out on by not reading Elizabeth Musser’s novels, but certainly I won’t be skipping them anymore! “When I Close My Eyes” absolutely blew me away. The sheer power and depth of her words, her understanding, her ability to engage and challenge her readers was incredible, and I don’t think I will ever look at the themes of mental illness and grace in quite the same way again. Honestly, I am a different and, I think, a better person after finishing this book than I was when I began it. Continue reading

A Rollicking Conclusion to the Fort Reno Series

I have long been anticipating the last story in “The Fort Reno” series by Regina Jennings, and “The Major’s Daughter” finally released in December 2019! As the unlikely tale between Caroline Adams and Frisco Smith unfolds, I found myself laughing, cheering, and learning some fascinating history about the 1889 Land Run of of Oklahoma (there was some serious sneakiness that occurred, that’s for sure!). Continue reading

A Unique and Lyrical Historical Novel

“As a long-standing feud threatens to spark once more, the fates of two families rest on the most unexpected of shoulders”. With these words, I was immediately intrigued! “When Silence Sings” is the first novel I’ve read by Sarah Loudin Thomas, and I definitely enjoyed my journey-through-words back in time to 1930, and the hills of West Virginia. Although the residents of these backwoods communities may not know it, long-held secrets are about to be revealed, and the lies behind decades-old feuds are about to be unearthed. Continue reading
