My Thoughts Ms. Dickson is a new to me author. I really enjoyed getting to know her work through this wonderful historical fiction novel! From start to finish, I was pulled into the center of the story and kept there until the very last page was reached. This book was a double bonus for me! I have always loved Ireland(even if I haven’t ever visited there!) and I have always loved the World War II era. This book is the best of both those worlds. Filled with wonderful details of historic happenings, and characters like Nan and Dutch that quickly steal your heart, I felt like I was transported back into the world of Hitler, and emotions so strong that they become the reader’s emotions. Ms. Dickson is definitely an author I recommend. She created this 4 star novel with passionate detail to another place in time, and left me feeling all the feels with this book. I loved the story line of redemption and hope. I can’t wait to read another book by this talented author!

My Thoughts Another wonderful Bible Study/Coloring Book combo! These are doing my collections a wonderful world of good. And this one is about my favorite lady of the Bible…..Mary. As a mama, this Bible Study/coloring combo, really spoke volumes to me. I loved the scripture that was chosen for it, along with the, once again, beautifully depicted pictures for a relazing study/coloring session. I definitely recommend this book with 4 stars!
My Thoughts I love to work on the adult coloring books and this was a wonderful addition to my collection! I especially love it because not only is it a coloring book, it is a wonderful Bible Study guide. Within the pages of this book are unique facts and scriptures from the book of Esther. There are questions within for you to answer and it is a wonderful guide for your Christian walk! I loved learning about Esther while having the relaxing pleasure of coloring the beautifully depicted pictures. I definitely recommend this for both your Bible study collections and your coloring book collections. It is well worth a 4 star rating and high recommendations!
My Thoughts Ms. Gray is back with another hit in the Amish Of Hart County series! She never fails to grip me wholly and keep me in the center of the story. This book, just like Her Secret, was an instant gripper for me. Once again, the characters were captivating for me. I loved Mark and Waneta both. Mark’s character really tugged at me the most. I can’t imagine the pain that he endured through life. The things he dealt with in life, you don’t imagine being a part of an Amish novel, but it was and it really made it that much more gripping. Oh to be there! I would go in mama mode on him and hug him big! Waneta’s character, well, she was a little too judgy at times, but seeing God work on her, really made me love her that much more. This book is intriguing, emotional, and gripping. It is not a sweet Amish romance, but it is a wonderful Amish novel in a series that will steal your heart, just the same. You will go through the roller coaster ride of ups and downs as you fall in love with each character, as you… Read more »
My Thoughts When it comes to Denise Hunter books, either I like them, or I don’t. I have found some of hers I love, and some of hers, I just can’t get into. Sweetbriar Cottage, however, is one that I could get into and I loved it! She took wonderful characters and added them to a plot line that is all the feels and sucks you in completely. Noah and Josephine’s characters are complex and really amazing for their roles. I loved seeing their reactions to the devastating news that their divorce wasn’t finalized. And, watching them when they realize they can’t leave the cottage, well, it is really a story filled with ups and downs and ins and outs. This is a story of learning to forgive, of letting go, of realizing that what one’s heart may think is wants, isn’t what God wants or has planned. Each page turn opened my eyes a little more to my own past and my own present and really appreciated Ms. Hunter for that. This is definitely a 5 star worthy read and one that I highly recommend to all. It is going on my keeper shelf and I can say that… Read more »
