The Love Letter

On 8/15 Emmy wrote: Hauck writes another novel based on the concept of split time storylines, combining both historical and contemporary aspects that are united around a single item or location.

Honeysuckle Dreams

Honeysuckle Dreams

On 7/18 Emmy wrote: For starters, I wasn't really sold out on reading this book. I read the synopsis and it's a story that I am not really a fond of. But just as each story deserves a chance, each book deserves a chance to be read. What's that they say? Do not judge the book by its cover, right? So then, I gave it a chance. While ...

When Hope Begins

When Hope Begins

On 6/29 Emmy wrote: You know what I like about this novel - it's how the author wrote a specific quote at the beginning of each chapter and it's the perfect quote each time.  Although the plot is somewhat predictable, there are still several surprises in the storylines. There were several storylines that I didn't like ... Where Hope Begins

FInding Selah

Fierce Faith

Fierce Faith

On 2/27 Emmy wrote: First of all, I like Alli's writing style - very practical and highly scriptural. She clearly blends in personal stories, Bible passages and doable steps for everyday living. Fierce Faith is both profound and simple. Therefore, this is not a book that you can rush through. Each chapter deserves a good ... Fierce Faith

Unseen

Unseen

On 12/31 Emmy wrote: Do you long to make a difference in the seemingly ordinary and invisible place that God has called you to be? Then this book is a MUST read for you. Unlike some books that I pick up and don’t want to put down, Unseen is more of a slow read for me – a book that I want to read in pieces and stop and ... Unseen by Sara Hagerty

Blue Ridge Sunrise

Blue Ridge Sunrise

On 12/31 Emmy wrote: Blue Ridge Sunrise was an enjoyable contemporary romance, but I must admit that being a single mother withholding information is not really my favorite story line. It wasn’t hard to predict the direction of the story. However, Denise Hunter still made it an enjoyable read. Zoe and Cruz are real life ... Blue Ridge Sunrise by Denise Hunter

The Writing Desk

The Writing Desk

On 10/25 Emmy wrote: By far, as far as September 2017 is concerned, this is the best fiction book I have read. This is one of the books where you exclaim 'Wow' after you finish reading and it leaves you feeling like you want to go back in time. Rachel Hauck has a superb gift of storytelling and weaving stories decades apart. ... The Writing Desk

Creating Calm in the Center of Crazy

Creating Calm in the Center of Crazy

On 8/27 Emmy wrote: The book - true to its title - gives good suggestions on how to slow things down in your life if it is as crazy as heck. It is jam packed with suggestions and how-to’s and stories and advice in the tone of “this is what worked for me, and maybe it might work for you.” Though full of good suggestions, ...

I Am

I Am

On 6/27 Emmy wrote: We are who we are only because of who HE is! This is the main message of the book that Cushatt wrote. The readings are light, quick and easy. I can say that this is a devotional book. With each new chapter, Cushatt points us back to God. When you read her book, you begin to take the focus off yourself ... I Am

You'll Think of Me

You'll Think of Me

On 6/27 Emmy wrote: Written in the third person, the chapters alternate between Brooklyn, Derek, and Ruth, Derek’s grandmother. What makes this book a light reading is the small, country-town setting and the collection of supportive and caring characters. Although I would have wanted more conflict or intense arguments ...
