Sunrise on the Battery

Sunrise on the Battery

On 5/1 Melissa Canonge wrote: Great Book! I thoroughly enjoyed reading Sunrise on the Battery by Beth Hart. The book started slowly, so I'm glad I was reading it in order to write a review, or I might not have kept at it. But it was definitely worth it. The author does a great job building the background story and making it believable. ... Great Book

Don't Check Your Brains at the Door

Treasuring Emma

Treasuring Emma

On 7/13 Melissa Canonge wrote: Treasuring Emma by Kathleen Fuller is not your average Amish romance book. The characters don't communicate like characters in other Amish books, and they definitely seem more real than how they are portrayed in other books. The women in the book struggled with trusting God (faith) and submission.  ... Book Review: Treasuring Emma

God's Love Letters to You

God's Love Letters to You

On 7/10 Melissa Canonge wrote: God's Love Letters to You: A Forty Day Devotional Experience is not your typical devotional book. I'm not the type of person who normally reads devotional books, so I was pleasantly surprised. I normally spend my time reading only the bible for my morning & evening devotions. I have tried ...

Beyond All Measure

Beyond All Measure

On 6/15 Melissa Canonge wrote: Beyond All Measure by Dorthy Love was not a quick read for me. Even though it was hard for me to get into the story, I did enjoy reading all the historical background information. The racial prejudice as well as North vs. South prejudice depicted in the book helped me see what a long way we have come ... Book Review: Beyond All Measure

A Vision of Lucy

On 6/12 Melissa Canonge wrote: I enjoyed reading A Vision of Lucy. Even though it was book three in a series, I was able to follow along and not feel lost at any point in the story without having read any of the prior books.

Spring for Susannah

Spring for Susannah

On 6/1 Melissa Canonge wrote: I wouldn't let my daughter read Spring For Susannah until she got married, (might awaken or stir thoughts of sex) and then I'm not so sure I'd recommend it because of the bias. As I read Spring For Susannah, I kept thinking this is a feminist book disguised as a Christian romance. Not only does Susannah's ... Book Review: Spring For Susannah
