Jody Hedlund does not shy away from topics such as injustice, poverty, separation and sadness. She also has a way of weaving hope into all of this! With You Always is set in New York City in 1857, one of the many struggling immigrants, Elise Neumann has lost her home, her mother, and when her world collides with the privileged and rich Thornton Quincy, things get…complicated.
Two reviews for the price of one Well, not really since you get them for free, but you know what I mean. Speaking of free, the Novella is free at the moment too.
Today I chat about Elizabeth Camden‘s books A Summer of Dreams and From This Moment. Guess who has been humming that Shenia Twain song all the time?
It’s a world they’ve seen only in their dreams—until now.
Recruits is a fast paced YA Sci-Fi story that had me wishing I could speed read. The fact that the main characters are twins intrigued me, not to mention that colourful cover. The twins, Sean and Dillon Kirrel, are young men, (which is nice for a change), and quickly their seemingly ordinary lives are turned upside-down when their get a mysterious new neighbour arrives.
(re)union is Bruxy Cavey’s latest book, and I was delighted to be offered an advance copy of this book.
“The message of Jesus changed the world…until the world changed the message.” – Bruxy Cavey, (re)union
Whether you are a seeker, saint or a sinner, this book will make you think, and not only that, it may change your life.
As part of the Thomas Nelson’s Young Adult Summer of 2017 Feature, I am delighted to kick off the Unraveling blog tour.
You are in for a treat! We have a book review, one of my favorite author interviews, and a giveaway, all rolled into one! Seriously, you do not want to miss this one. Although Sara Ella’s books might be Young Adult, many parents (cough, cough) are reading them too — And loving them. Ok I will stop with the exclamation marks now, but I do invite you to come along with me as we speak all things Unraveling (& Unblemished)
I have been a fan of the author, Dee Henderson’s work for many years. Many, many years (I am not confessing how many) but I was delighted when I discovered Dee Henderson’s Evie Blackwell series. This one had me hooked, the pace is steady and the NEED TO KNOW WHO DID IT, is strong. But, there is more.
This book, Then Came You, by Becky Wade is really so refreshing. It is soooo cleverly done! And the best news is that is that you can download the novella on your kindle or kindle app for free. Yes, your eyes do not deceive you. But before you rush off and do that, read my review.
It’s almost time for the release of the brand new Jody Hedlund series called The Orphan Train Series, starting with With You Always soon to be released, but first, to wet our appetites is the delightful and quite important, (I think) novella which introduces us to New York City in 1857. One thing I love about historical fiction is that it brings a snapshot of history to life and Jody Hedlund is among my favorite authors to do this!
Fighting Fear, by Kelly Balarie’s cover appealed to me. Simple and clean. Although I was curious about the book, I did not think I had many fear issues. After all, I am an extroverted, happy go lucky (most of the time) person. I don’t consider myself anxious, unless I have to do a math test. (Those have not happened in years, thankfully!)
I was in for a reality check.
It is not everyday you get to name a novel, and then you get to read it and as you do you find out that it is even more fitting than you first thought. Let me tell you a cool story about that. Find out more about this delightful Romantic Comedy set in Seattle. Count Me In, by Mikal Dawn, coming soon to a kindle near you.
