CelebrateLit Blog Tour Review: Lydia by Diana Wallis Taylor

About the Book: Name of book: Lydia Author: Diana Wallis Taylor Genre: Biblical Fiction Release Date: October 3, 2017 Smart, strong, and a follower of the Jewish God, Lydia has nonetheless quietly conformed to the expectations of the wealthy Roman society into which she was born. Her father marries her off at age fifteen to a much older man whom she dislikes. Despite an unpleasant wedding and a marriage that doesn’t improve with age, Lydia remains a dutiful and faithful wife. When her husband is killed, years later, Lydia vows to remain single and returns to her father’s house in Thyatira with her twelve-year-old daughter. There, a new life begins to emerge as she is trained in the family dye business. Lydia displays an aptitude for trade in the male-dominated world of first century commerce. Her brother, who had chosen service in the Roman army rather than work in his father’s business, is at odds with his sister. Jealous of her quiet success as she learns the dye business, he’s especially befuddled by what he considers to be Lydia’s obsession with the Jewish religion. When their father dies, Cassius inherits the family’s home; Lydia inherits the business, and unbeknownst to… Read more »

Revell Reads Review: Fault Lines by Thomas Locke

Revell Reads Review: Fault Lines by Thomas Locke

My Thoughts This is my first Thomas Locke book. I was very intrigued by the back of the book synopsis so I jumped on it. However, sitting down to read it, I realized it’s not the first book in a series and I need to go back and catch up on the rest. That said, this book is definitely an interesting read. Charlie and the other characters within the pages really gripped me and were chiseled well for the plot line. I enjoyed following them on this intense ride of twists and turns. I felt like I was a on a roller coaster, whirlwind ride. Definitely made for late night reading! This is phsychological thriller novels at it’s finest. If you like stories that are gripping, moving and keep you on the edge of your seat, then this is defiintely a book you won’t want to miss. Mr. Locke is talented and throws the reader a 4 star bone with this book! I am looking forward to going back and reading the other books, as well as any future books in this series. Well done, Mr. Locke!
