Rachel Linden is a new to me, author, well I guess she is new to all of us since this is her debut novel. Rachel Linden is a novelist and international aid worker whose adventures living and traveling in over fifty countries around the world provide excellent grist for her writing. She enjoys creating stories about hope and courage with a hint of romance and a touch of whimsy. Ascension of Larks was quite an unforgettable read and in my review, you’ll find out why.
Today is the anniversary of Canada’s formation into a Dominion. To celebrate I am reviewing a wonderful new inspiring coffee table book chock full of colour photographs of our land and stories about men and women who made a difference, the ripple effects of which are still being felt in our multi-cultural society today. One Dominion, Celebrating Canada – Prepared for a Purpose is published by Bible League Canada.
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!
