On 2/19 Coupondipity wrote: When I was given the opportunity to review a book about Dietrich Bonhoeffer by Eric Metaxas, I knew it was a book I wanted to read.

Great Overview of Bonhoeffer's Life

On 5/30 Coupondipity wrote: I have to say that the premise of the plot was intriguing, especially considering the issues going on with women in countries other than mine. In real life, baby girls are being left to die, offered up for adoption, and treated as 'less than'. So what would happen if a parent decided to raise that girl ... Interesting and Intriguing Plot!

On 2/28 Coupondipity wrote: Can you imagine waking up one day to find that millions of people have literally vanished? Friends, family, acquaintances, co-workers, simply gone.

On 2/27 Coupondipity wrote: Sara's life is moving along just fine, until her chain-smoking missionary Aunt Bel shows up on her doorstep with some big secrets. Sara hasn't seen her or heard from her since Sara was four years old, so things get very interesting! I have to admit, this book didn't immediately hook me or draw me in. ... Interesting and Quirky Read
On 2/6 Coupondipity wrote: This book, Song of the Brokenhearted, by Sheila Walsh and Cindy Coloma, is a beautiful portrait of grace, hope and redemption. At times in our lives, we have to find a way to let go of the past, and the character in this book, Ava, finally learns to do just that. But it's not an easy road, and it's ... A Journey to Redemption
On 10/16 Coupondipity wrote: Covenant Child by Terri Blackstock is a beautiful portrait of forgiveness.
