Freedom's Price by Christine Johnson - A Book Review
     I carried my
Kindle around with me, room to room, in the car, almost everywhere I went,
reading every spare minute, compelled to find out what was going to happen to
Catherine Haynes as she traveled from England to Louisiana to meet the family
who had ...

The Return by Suzanne Woods Fisher - A Book Review
         I first met Anna in Anna’s Crossing , a story of one of the first groups of Amish to
leave Germany to settle in the New World. The
Return is largely the story of Anna’s daughter, Tessa, although many others
play major roles in the story’s developme...

Before We Were Yours by Lisa Wingate - A Book Review
            No work of
fiction has touched my heart as deeply as Before
We Were Yours, not even The Memory
Keeper’s Daughter or The Secret Life
of Bees. I would definitely put this book in the league with those titles
and To Kill A Mockingbird. That is

My Heart Remembers by Kim Vogel Sawyer - A Book Review
     This is not a new
book to the market, the copyright date on this book is 2008, but it is one I

abandoned children were sent from crowded cities in the Eastern states out West

Tatiana de Rosnay’s Sarah’s Key or
Markus Zusak’s The Book Thief you
will likely love Kristy Cambron’s The
Butterfly and the Violin . Cambron tells the story of Sera James, who runs a
Manhattan art gallery, and her quest for an elusive...

Dream of Life by Michael Phillips - A Comment
       Dream of Life is the second book in
Phillips’ American Dream series. I finished the book last month, and have been
trying to decide how I wanted to review it, but life kept getting in the way,
and I was struggling with the words that would do justice...

The Bridge by Karen Kingsbury - A Book Review
       A friend
suggested I read this book, and I am glad that she did. The Bridge is a sentimental story that tugs at ones heart strings.
Molly Allen went to college in Tennessee as a music student to escape her
privileged upbringing and the expectations h...

Haven of Swans by Colleen Coble - A Book Review
    I have read four
other books from the Rock Harbor Collection, and a couple of other books in
which Rock Harbor characters made cameo appearances. I really enjoyed returning
to Rock Harbor in Haven of Swans , and
following along with Bree and Kade as the...
