~My Review~

A Reluctant Bride~ Jody Hedlund~
I had stopped reading Jody Hedlund’s books for a while because I felt that her books were getting a little too mushy for Christian Fiction in my opinion.
It’s just my preference that when I read Christian Fiction I expect to see a hugh difference between secular fiction and Christian novels.

I love,love bride of convenience stories. I think what introduced me to those kind of stories is when I first read Love Comes Softly by Janette Oke. I have loved marriage of convenience stories ever since.
I cannot wait to read more marriage of convenience stories in Jody Hedlund’s book series.

I actually did love reading this book! I was intrigued with the drama and everything from page one til the end.

It was just amazing to see how many women back then were in poverty and marriage was pretty much the only decent way out unless you had been born into money or inherited it. I think that the
author did a good job of drawing a picture of what that situation would look like.

I liked both main characters. They were awesome! Especially the main lady character, Mercy. She was so loving and caring that is was heart wrenching. I highly recommend
reading this book if you love reading marriage of convenience stories. I can’t wait to read the next book in this series!

Yours Truly, Thomas~Rachel Fordham

Yours Truly, Thomas

 

~Synopsis~

For three years, Penny Ercanbeck has been opening other people’s mail. Dead ends are a reality for clerks at the Dead Letter Office. Still she dreams of something more–a bit of intrigue, a taste of romance, or at least a touch less loneliness. When a letter from a brokenhearted man to his one true love falls into her hands, Penny seizes this chance to do something heroic. It becomes her mission to place this lost letter into the hands of its intended recipient.

Thomas left his former life with no intention of ending up in Azure Springs, Iowa. He certainly didn’t expect a happy ending after what he had done. All he wanted to do was run and never look back. In a moment of desperation, he began to write, never really expecting a reply.

When Penny’s undertaking leads her to the intriguing man who touched her soul with his words, everything grows more complicated. She wants to find the rightful owner of the letter and yet she finds herself caring–perhaps too much–for the one who wrote it.

 

 

~My Review~

 

Yours Truly, Thomas~Rachel Fordham

This was one of the best books I had read last year. It was very entertaining and I read it in about one sitting!

I had read one of the the first books by this author and I wasn’t really a fan the first time around. This story however was the complete opposite. I fell in love with this book from the
very first page. That’s why I always try to give an author at least 2 chances before I can decide if I’m going to continue reading their books or not.

This book was very lively,witty, and romantic.

As for the letters, I really loved them! Sometimes it’s my preference to not read a book mostly composed of letters. I’m an action type of girl. 😉
This novel was definitely the exception for sure! It was awesome!

The main character Penny was just a lovely and wonderful character.

I really loved reading this book and I highly recommend this book to anyone who’s looking for a good read. It was a lovely and wonderful book. Also the book cover is just beautiful!

Finding Lady Enderly~Joanna Davidson Politano~

Finding Lady Enderly

 

~Synopsis~

Raina Bretton is a rag woman in London’s east end when a handsome stranger appears in a dank alley and offers her a glittering smile and a chance for adventure. Rothburne Abbey has a unique position for her, one that will take her away from her hardscrabble life and give her a chance to be a lady. Things she could only dream of might be coming true. But some dreams turn out to be nightmares.

Though Raina has traded squalor for silk and satin, something about the abbey is deeply unsettling. As she wrestles with her true identity, the ruin, decay, and secrets she finds at the heart of the old mansion tear at her confidence and threaten to reveal her for who she really is. Only one man stands between her and the danger that lurks within–and only if he decides to keep her biggest secret hidden

 

 

~My Review~

I had been meaning to read a book written by this author for a while before I read, “Finding Lady Enderly”.

I’ve had her books on my TBR list for the longest.
For me, I think that this author was a breath of fresh air and reading her novel made me want to finish this books as fast as I possibly could. This was a very exciting read.
Every now and again I can get into a reading slump and just reading a new book really helped me.

This story definitely drew me in from the very first page.

I loved the main character Raina. She was a wonderful character and I felt that I could really indentify with her.

Any novel that has a Jane Austenish (If I could call it that! lol) I’m head over heels ready to devour it!

I loved how the author included little snippets of quotes before each chapter began. I think it added a very nice touch to the book.

I especially loved this quote from the book,”Blessed are those who hand God the reins,for they shall find adventures.”

I thought that this novel was a well rounded book filled with my three favorite things to read about, faith,romance,and adventure. I highly recommend this book and I can’t
wait to see what else this author has in store.

When Tides Turn~Sarah Sundin~

When Tides Turn (Waves of Freedom, #3)

 

~Synopsis~

Tess Beaumont is tired of being thought of as just a pretty face. Eager to do her part for the war effort, she joins the Navy’s newly established WAVES program for women. Perhaps there she can convince people that there is more to her than meets the eye.

Lt. Dan Avery has been using his skills in the fight against German U-boats and hoping to make admiral. The last thing he wants to see on his radar is a girl like Tess. Convinced that romance will interfere with his goals, Dan is determined to stay the course, no matter how intriguing a distraction Tess is.

But love, like war, is unpredictable. When Dan is shipped out at the peak of the Battle of the Atlantic, he finds himself torn between his lifelong career goals and his desire to help the beguiling Tess root out a possible spy on shore. Could this fun-loving glamour girl really be the one?

 

 

~My Review~

Wow! Sarah Sundin never fails to disappoint! Why did I wait so long to read this book?

What really drew me to this book was the beautiful book cover of course! I LOVE this book cover and when I saw it I knew that I had to read it.

The story was very moving and I love how Sarah Sundin interweaves history and drama into her novels. I also love how most of her books are interconnected but you can still read this book as a stand-alone as well.

I just love reading Sarah Sundin’s books and I can’t wait to read her next novel. I highly recommend this novel!

The Vicar’s Daughter~ Josi S. Kilpack~

 

~Synopsis~

Cassie, the youngest of six daughters in the Wilton family, is bold, bright, and ready to enter society. There’s only one problem: her older sister Lenora, whose extreme shyness prevents her from attending many social events. Lenora is now entering her third season, and since their father has decreed that only one Wilton girl can be out at a time, Cassie has no choice except to wait her turn.

Evan Glenside, a soft-spoken, East London clerk, has just been named his great-uncle’s heir and, though he is eager to learn all that will be required of him, he struggles to feel accepted in a new town and in his new position.

A chance meeting between Evan and Lenora promises to change everything, but when Lenora proves too shy to pursue the relationship, Cassie begins to write Mr. Glenside letters in the name of her sister. Her good intentions lead to disaster when Cassie realizes she is falling in love with Evan. But then Evan begins to court Lenora, thinking she is the author of the letters.

As secrets are revealed, the hearts of Cassie, Evan, and Lenora are tested. Will the final letter sent by the vicar’s daughter be able to reunite the sisters as well as unite Evan with his true love?

 

~My Review~

I really,really,really wanted to like this book. I was interested in this book because it was published by the same company that published Edenbrooke and Blackmoore by Julianne Donaldson.
I’m always ready to step out of my comfort zone when it comes to reading books because I think that is the only way to find a good read.

The synopsis sounded very interesting so I decided to give this book a go. The beginning started out really well and it kept my interest at first and not to mention the book cover is beautiful. That’s one of my weaknesses is to read a book with a beautiful book cover.
As the book progressed I lost interest pretty quickly.

I was just disappointed because the plot sounded so mesmerizing but the book just didn’t do it for me. It fell flat. I’m not giving up on this author just yet but this book just wasn’t a
favorite of mine at all.

Freedom’s Light~Colleen Coble~

Freedom's Light by [Coble, Colleen]

 

~Synopsis~

Hannah Thomas left the South and all that was familiar to marry her beloved John. But the fact that she’s never been quite accepted by his mother and sister and that she doesn’t quite fit the strict Massachusetts Puritan community only becomes more difficult when John is killed in one of the first battles in the war for freedom. Hannah is allowed to continue to serve as lightkeeper for the twin tower lighthouses on the lonely coastline, but it is grueling work for a woman alone.

One of the first shipwrecks washes ashore a handsome captain she thinks is a Tory, but she soon finds out he’s working as a spy for Washington. Much stands in the way of their happiness including the need to protect his secret, pressure from John’s family to marry another, near-constant disapproval from the townspeople, and the appearance of Hannah’s wayward sister. Coupled with the strain of war, Hannah isn’t sure she’ll ever see the light of freedom.

 

 

~Review~

I haven’t read much by Colleen Coble and so when I saw this book, I was willing to give it a try. To say the least, the first few lines did not hold my attention at all. I always count on the beginning of the book to really pull me in so that I can have some hope of finishing the book.

It held my attention in the first chapter and then I just couldn’t finish the book. I was hoping to like this book because I love reading historical fiction but it was disappointing.

I’m not giving up on this author because I at least like to give authors two or three chances because I love reading Christian fiction. Overall, even thought the book cover was pretty amazing, this book just wasn’t my cup of tea.

The Weaver’s Daughter~Sarah Ladd~

The Weaver's Daughter

 

 

 

*Synopsis*

 

Kate’s loyalties bind her to the past. Henry’s loyalties compel him to strive for a better future. In a landscape torn between tradition and vision, can two souls find the strength to overcome their preconceptions?

Loyalty has been at the heart of the Dearborne family for as long as Kate can remember, but a war is brewing in their small village, one that has the power to rip families asunder –including her own. As misguided actions are brought to light, she learns how deep her father’s pride and bitterness run, and she begins to wonder if her loyalty is well-placed.

Henry Stockton, heir to the Stockton fortune, returns home from three years at war seeking refuge from his haunting memories. Determined to bury the past, he embraces his grandfather’s goals to modernize his family’s wool mill, regardless of the grumblings from the local weavers. When tragedy strikes shortly after his arrival, Henry must sort truth from suspicion if he is to protect his family’s livelihood and legacy.

Henry has been warned about the Dearborne family. Kate, too, has been advised to stay far away from the Stocktons, but chance meetings continue to bring her to Henry’s side, blurring the jagged lines between loyalty, justice, and truth. Kate ultimately finds herself with the powerful decision that will forever affect her village’s future. As unlikely adversaries, Henry and Kate must come together to find a way to create peace for their families, and their village, and their souls – even if it means risking their hearts in the process.

 

*My Review*

This novel reminded me so much of North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell. I have never read the actual novel
by Gaskell but I have watched North and South about a hundred times or more. Anyone who loves North and South by BBC
will definitely fall in love with this novel! It was lovely,dramatic,and romantic.

This novel also had some Jane Austen flair to it as well so if you love Regency and Jane Austen her books are
the way to go.

I also loved how the author portrayed the main character,Kate.

I will say that this novel was a bit different from her previous novels. I love to see when authors can show different layers of themselves in their writing.

If you love Regency/Industrial Revolution novels. Then this is definitely the book for you! Highly recommend! Can’t wait for her next book!

A Light On the Hill~Connilyn Cossette~

A Light on the Hill (Cities of Refuge, #1)

 

 

*My Review*

First off, let me just brag about how beautiful this book cover is! Pretty much all the book covers from this
author is just breathtaking. Love it!

So, I discovered this author a while back and I’ve been keeping up with whatever novel she has written.
Needless to say, I’ve enjoyed the journey so far. Usually I read her books within a day or two.

A Light On the Hill’s story started out pretty well and I love how her beginnings of a novel just drew me in from the first page. I’ve always wondered about the cities of refuge that the Bible talks about so I think it’s
great that the author is taking a leap in writing about what could have been. I loved the heroine
Moriyah because she has such a strong character. Also the hero was pretty awesome as well. 😉

Though there were times I did have to skip ahead, I still enjoyed reading this novel. This author has become one
of my favorites when it comes to Biblical fiction. I highly recommend reading her books! I can’t wait for her
next book in this series!

Grace and the Preacher~Kim Vogel Sawyer~

Grace and the Preacher

~Synopsis~

The Kansas community of Fairland anticipates the arrival of their new minister and in recent months, late in 1882, postmistress Grace Cristler has communicated with Reverend Dille via letters, answering his questions about the little town, and developing affection for the man who pens thoughtful missives.

Theophil Garrison grew up under the loving influence of his saintly grandmother, but was roped into his cousins’ train-robbing plan. When they fail and are apprehended, Theo fled the scene, evading jail time. Now an angry cousin is out to avenge Theo’s duplicity, and he’s on the run. He encounters a fatally ill traveler–a minister. Seeing a way to keep hidden, Theo trades identities with the man, dons his fine black suit, carries a Bible, and prays that he’ll be accepted as Rufus Dille.

Once in Fairland, if Theo’s true identity is uncovered, what will be left of the world he has built for himself, Grace, and those in the town who have come to love and accept him?

~My Review~

 

 

Wow!  I must say that I was blown away by this novel!

Kim Sawyer has been one of my favorite authors for a while now so every time a new novel of hers come out I’m giddy with joy and begin reading it because I know it’ll be good!
So for starters, in my opinion, sometimes it’s difficult to really master a book where it tries to tell the stories of both the hero and the heroine because sometimes the author may focus on one character more than the other and it leaves the reader wondering why is this story about this character in the first place. In this novel, I found the perfect balance between the hero and the heroine’s story that I fell in love with both characters which is a rare thing for me.
I really loved how that the author weaved redemption throughout the story line. That was an awesome feat in itself!
This novel had the wonderful combination of redemption,romance, adventure,and humor all the way through.
I just loved how well written this novel was and I have to admit that it is one of the best novels that I’ve read in a while. I highly recommend this book and I’m definitely looking forward to reading more of her upcoming books. (4.5 stars)

Estelle Brantley grew up in affluence and knows exactly how to behave in high society. But when she is cast from the social registers due to her father’s illegal dealings, she finds herself forced into a role she never imagined: tutoring rough Kansas ranchers in the subjects of manners and morals so they can “marry up” with their mail-order brides. Mack Cleveland, whose father was swindled by a mail-order bride, wants no part of the scheme to bring Eastern women to Spiveyville, Kansas, and he’s put off by the snooty airs and fastidious behavior of the “little city gal” in their midst.

An Uncommon Courtship~Kristi Ann Hunter~

An Uncommon Courtship (Hawthorne House, #3)

~Synopsis~

When her mother’s ill-conceived marriage trap goes awry, Lady Adelaide Bell unwittingly finds herself bound to a stranger who ignores her. Lord Trent Hawthorne, who had grand plans to marry for love, is even less pleased with the match. Can they set aside their first impressions before any chance of love is lost?

~My Review~

I can NEVER put enough emphasis on how much I LOVE,LOVE,LOVE marriage of convenience stories! I LOVE and adore marriage of convenience stories and they’ll always have a special place in my heart. So when I saw this book and read the plot, I knew I had to read it right away!

This book started out very well and it kept me up reading late into the night. I love when a book has that ability to just lift me up and take me to the place of wonder. *sigh* I loved reading about the different incidents that unfolded following the main character, Lady Adelaide and I really liked her character in the story.

The hero was ok but I wish there was “more” to him as far as concerning his character.
I really enjoyed reading this author’s the first book,” A Noble Masquerade” so I’m determined to read the rest of her series. Although this was s good book I can say it wasn’t my favorite in the series. It did have its ups and downs.
This book was full of intriguing romance and adventure something that’s always a plus in my book. 😉
I highly recommend Kristi Ann Hunter’s books. I can’t wait for more of her upcoming books.

Dawn at Emberwilde~Sarah Ladd~

Dawn at Emberwilde (Treasures of Surrey, #2)

~Synopsis~

Isabel Creston never dared to dream that love could be hers. Now, at the edge of a forest filled with dark secrets, she faces a fateful choice between love and duty.

For as long as she can remember, beautiful and free-spirited Isabel has strained against the rules and rigidity of the Fellsworth School in the rolling English countryside. No longer a student, Isabel set her sights on a steady yet unexciting role as a teacher at the school, a safe yet stifling establishment that would provide her a steady environment to care for her younger sister Lizzie, who was left in her care after her father’s death.

The unexpected arrival of a striking stranger with news of unknown relatives turns Isabel’s small, predictable world upside down, sweeping her and her young charge into a labyrinth of intrigue and hidden motives.

At her new family’s invitation, Isabel and Lizzie relocate to Emberwilde, a sprawling estate adjacent to a vast, mysterious wood rife with mysterious rumors and ominous folklore—along with whispers of something far more sinister. And perhaps even more startling, two handsome men begin pursuing Isabel, forcing her to learn the delicate dance between attraction, the intricate rules of courtship, and the hopes of her heart.

At Emberwilde, Isabel will discover that the key to unlocking the mystery of her past may also open the door to her future and security. But first she must find it—in the depths of Emberwilde Forest.

 

~ My Review~

I was really impressed with the beginning of this book. I always love it when an author can draw me into another world with their writing whether it be with the story,characters,or the timeline.

In “Dawn at Emberwilde” the main character Isabel was a very refreshing breath of fresh air. I really liked her character. On the other hand, I’m sorry to say that I wasn’t as impressed by the hero. I just didn’t get that swoony feeling that I love to see in any hero in a novel.
Overall, I just think that the book cover was really beautiful! Even though I did enjoy the beginning of the novel, there were times in the novel that I felt kinda lagged behind. All in all, I still like reading Sarah Ladd’s books and I highly recommend her writing to anyone who love to read regency fiction.

UPCOMING NOVEL FROM SARAH LADD!!

She wants to resist her brother’s demands, but by remaining at the Fellsworth School she puts everyone in danger. When the unthinkable happens, only Owen can piece together the puzzle to set Annabelle free. When all comes to light, the two souls must come to terms with the secrets in the shadows before they can find peace and love in the light.

A Dream of Miracles~Ruth Reid~

A Dream of Miracles (The Amish Wonders #3)

 

~Synopsis~

Mattie Diener can barely keep it together. A young Amish widow and mother of two young children, she faces the lingering heartbreak of lost love, her son’s mysterious illness, and a torrent of accusations that threaten to undo her.

Bo Lambright is a fast-rising social services investigator whose high-society mother won’t rest until she finds his Mrs. Right. Despite Bo’s worldly success, the raw ache of a shadowy past and a series of unsettling dreams have left him reeling.

Is a miracle possible—not only of healing but of forbidden love? What secrets lie in Bo’s dreams? And will Mattie find the courage to face her uncertain future . . . or will she simply run away?

 

~My Review~

Wow! What an experience. There’s only a few series that I’ve read all the way from the first to the third book. I must say that I was pretty impressed by this author’s first book,”A Miracle of Hope”.

I’m very excited about what else this author has in store.
From the very first page. I was drawn into this heartwarming story.
Even though this story was quite enjoyable to read, I felt that there were times that the story was going in circles. I just think that as far as the characters and the story goes it could’ve been, “More”. The story was good but I just need more especially when it comes to an Amish novel because it’s rare that I read novels that are Amish based.
In my opinion, I think that the second or third book in a series is very crucial to me because it would determine if I wanted to keep reading more of the author’s work. Even though this book wasn’t my favorite book in this series, I was impressed by her first book so I have confidence that her writing is pretty good. Even though this novel wasn’t my favorite of hers, I’m still impressed by her writing and I’m eager to see what else this author has in store. (3 stars)

The Confessions of X~Suzanne M.Wolfe~

 The Confessions of X*Synopsis*

Before he became the sainted church father of Christianity, Augustine of Hippo began a love affair with a young woman whose name has been lost to history. They were together for over thirteen years, and she bore him a son. This is her story.

She met Augustine in Carthage when she was just seventeen years old. She was the daughter of a tile-layer. He was a student and the heir to a fortune. They fell in love, despite her lower station and Augustine’s dreams of greatness. Their passion was strong, but the only position in his life that was available to her was as his concubine. When Augustine’s ambition and family compelled him to disown his relationship with the her, X was thrust into a devastating reality as she was torn from her son and sent away to her native Africa.

A reflection of what it means to love and lose, this novel paints a gripping and raw portrait of ancient culture, appealing to historical fiction fans while deftly exploring one woman’s search for identity and happiness within very limited circumstances

 

 ~My Review~

The Confessions of X ~Suzanne M. Wolfe

I can say that I didn’t know what to expect while reading this novel. I knew a little of St.Augustine and I knew there is a book that he had written but I’ve never read his writings. It may be on my list of to-read books because I thought that this novel was pretty interesting.

As I say over and over, I’m always looking forward to reading something new and exciting.
This novel was pretty much different from my usual reads. In my opinion,I really don’t enjoy reading books that are written from a first person perspective but I can say that I was completely drawn to the storyline even though I’ve been kinda in a reading slump for about over a month. I thought that the writing was upbeat and interesting. I enjoyed reading about the different characters in this novel as well.

I highly recommend this book. I thought that “Confessions of X” because it was unique and well written. I’m very much looking to anything else this author will write.
