Must Get Monday – In Love’s Time

Must Get Monday – In Love’s Time

Happy Monday! The book I’m featuring this week is In Love’s Time by Kate Breslin While I’ve had several of Kate Breslin’s books on my TBR shelves for longer than I’d like to admit, my first read by the author was As Dawn Breaks last year. I absolutely LOVED it so I’ve been a bit […]

When Stone Wings Fly

When Stone Wings Fly

My Review: Wow, this story was full of so many twists and turns and emotional rollercoasters that I wasn’t quite sure what to do with myself in the end! It was unique, unpredictable, and gripped my heart in ways that kept the pages turning while I ignored all of my other adult responsibilities. There’s so […]

Long Way Home

Long Way Home

My Review: Not that I haven’t enjoyed multiple books by Lynn Austin over the years, but her WWII novels she’s written recently have been rather remarkable and I was excited to get my hands on a copy of this one.  Gisela’s timeline had me gripped and I simply needed to know what happened to her. […]

The Songs That Could Have Been

The Songs That Could Have Been

My Review: I enjoyed Amanda Wen’s debut and so I was really looking forward to this one. I was instantly invested in Rosie’s story and the intrigue of her relationship with the mysterious Ephraim. Quite possibly because of how interested I was in that timeline though, I couldn’t bring myself to care about Lauren and […]

A Hundred Crickets Singing

A Hundred Crickets Singing

My Review: Oh my goodness, there is nothing quite like Cathy Gohlke’s writing and I always know I’m in for a powerful read when I pick one of hers up. This one was absolutely no exception. She’s not afraid to tackle seemingly impossible topics with emotional journeys that help heal, convict, challenge, and even encourage […]

The Winter Rose

The Winter Rose

My Review: We all have those authors that are on our must-read list and Melanie Dobson is absolutely one of those for me, and has proven why once again with The Winter Rose. This story gripped my heart in the very beginning and held it captive until the very end. I couldn’t set it down […]

With Love, Wherever You Are

With Love, Wherever You Are

My Review: Wow, talk about an unexpected gem of a read! I happened to come across this one on a ChristianBook clearance sale and snagged a copy because it looked like it might be an interesting read. Boy, was it ever! Forget how many pages long this one was, I didn’t want to put it […]

As Dawn Breaks

As Dawn Breaks

My Review: Talk about a fantastic read! This one had me captivated from cover to cover. Coming in at almost 400 pages long, it was a journey to be sure, with the perfect blend of page-turning suspense and personal struggle. The pacing was very well done to keep the reader invested in the story without […]

The Curator’s Daughter

The Curator’s Daughter

My Review: Not surprising in the least this was another read by Melanie Dobson that I couldn’t put down! The pace was a bit slower than some of her other reads, but the underlying questions that demanded answers kept me fully invested. I felt that the message of “history repeating itself” and the urgency to […]

Chasing Shadows

Chasing Shadows

My Review: Oh, how I loved this one! Reading each of the different POV’s kept my nose deep into the pages of this one because I couldn’t seem to rest until I knew what would happen next for each of them. The danger that loomed around every corner and the suspense that kept my heartrate […]
