An Inspiring Nantucket Adventure

Although I haven’t read very many of Suzanne Woods Fisher’s numerous novels, the ones I have read are always enjoyable and unique. Her newest Historical Romance release from Revell Publishing, “Phoebe’s Light”, was no exception, and is the first of an exciting new series called the “Nantucket Legacy”. As the back cover promises, readers will be swept away on an adventure set against the “treacherous shores of Quaker life on the storied Nantucket Island”. Continue reading

Difficult to Enjoy (Guest Review by Hayley)

The last book I read by Rachel Hauck was “A Royal Christmas Wedding”.  It easily became my favourite book by this author, and just as easily one of my favourite novellas to read during the Christmas season.  Thus, when I read the charming description of “The Writing Desk”, well, there was no way of refusing!  I so much hoped for another story that would be as much a joy as the last.

What a Story! Don’t Miss “The Illusionist’s Apprentice”!

Wow… just, wow! This was basically my first impression after reaching the end of Kristy Cambron’s newest novel from Thomas Nelson Publishers, entitled “The Illusionist’s Apprentice”.

With numerous references to the infamous Harry Houdini, and a plot filled with mystery and secrets, this novel is certain to appeal to all fans of Inspirational Historical Fiction. Continue reading
