I never pass by an opportunity to read one of Jill Eileen Smith’s new Biblical Fiction masterpieces. “Daughter of Eden: Eve’s Story” is one of the most unique stories I’ve read in a long time, for obvious reasons… after all, it’s not every book that tells us the story of the first man and woman ever created! And it certainly exceeded my expectations in all ways. Continue reading
Christian Historical Fiction
Step Back In Time To Sweetwater Crossing
As you probably know, Christian Historical Fiction is my favorite genre hands-down. More specifically, stories with a traditional western setting during the 1800s are my go-to choices. So Amanda Cabot’s writing is always appealing to me, and when I saw that her new series entitled “Secrets of Sweetwater Crossing” is set in a little Texas town where love grows even as mysteries threaten to divide, I knew I wanted to give it a try!

The Best Story I’ve Read This Year!
Jocelyn Green’s new releases are always at the very top of my reading list, simply because they are incredible stories filled with little-known historical insights, all told with a rich and masterful writer’s voice. “The Metropolitan Affair” is probably the best story I’ve read so far this year, and I highly recommend it to all fans of historical fiction. And one of the best parts? It’s only the first story in a new series, “On Central Park”, so we have more historic New York drama to look forward to soon! Continue reading
A Compelling Conclusion to a Tumultuous Tale – Guest Review by Hayley
As the last of “The Blackstone Legacy” novels, “Hearts of Steel” delivers quite an epic conclusion to the series.
In “Hearts of Steel” we finally get a deeper look at Liam’s story, and the person he has become after being reunited with his family after decades apart. Also, Maggie is quite a different heroine than the others in this series have been, as she comes from a poverty-stricken family rather than the Blackstone clan. Continue reading
Deep… Challenging… Inspiring!
I have decided that it is literally impossible for Kimberly Duffy to write a novel that is light, easy to read, or uninspiring. She simply can’t do it! And I mean this in the most admiring way possible…. “The Weight of Air” is a masterpiece that combines so many elements together into a novel that is deep, challenging, and awe-inspiring to the utmost. It is unusual and complex, and probes the depths of human nature with themes such as what it means to be strong, where our worth comes from and who defines it, and how love can be portrayed in so many different ways – but not all of them true. Continue reading
The “Colorado Cowboys” Series Concludes
The final story of Jody Hedlund’s dramatic and memorable “Colorado Cowboys” series has finally been released! “The Last Chance Cowboy” tells us the story of the last McQuaid brother, Dylan, who has what just may be the most redemptive story of all five siblings. Dylan, you see, is a changed man – he’s the sheriff of Fairplay, doing his best to redeem his past and move forward into an honorable future. But one day his past catches up with him in a most unexpected way, which leads to a story that I certainly found surprising and unique! Continue reading
Healing For Your Heart And Wings For Your Imagination – Guest Review by Hayley
Having read three books now by Amanda Dykes, it is clear that this author possesses a divinely-bestowed talent with words. Rarely have I read such poetic writing in a novel. “All the Lost Places” brings readers this signature writing style in a very unique setting, one that I don’t believe I have ever seen before in a novel – Venice, and in two different time periods. Continue reading
What A Gem From Roseanna White! – guest review by Hayley
Roseanna White is one of my very favourite authors. Dual-time novels are some of my favourite books to read. A dual-time novel by Roseanna White? Well, it was destined to be fantastic from the very first page. Continue reading
Just What My Heart Needed – Guest Review by Hayley
Fans of Regency Era fiction will be eager to pick up Julie Klassen’s latest release, “The Sisters of Sea View.” As the beginning of her new series “On the Shores of Devonshire,” this book is a delightful read. Continue reading
It Drove Me Crazy! (In The Best Sense :)
Wow, did this book ever drive me crazy – in all the best ways possible! “In Love’s Time” by Kate Breslin is the type of story that snatches your imagination from the first page, and holds it captive right until the very end. The twists and turns, the agonizing misunderstandings, and the beautifully drawn-out love story set in war-torn Europe were all written in such a way that I felt as though I were right in the midst of it all – and biting my nails as I witnessed it unfold!
