Reviews by Amanda Chambers
On 1/18 Amanda Chambers wrote: Waiting for Morning is the second book in The Brides Of Last Chance Ranch Series. I loved Dawn Comes Early and Waiting for Morning is just as entertaining. Molly is struggling with guilt over an accident that occurred when she was a child, and can't quite let her brother grow up. In midst of the serious ... Another great "Bride" story
On 3/24 Amanda Chambers wrote: Kate Tenney has lived in the city all her life, but she’s written about life on a ranch, so hard can it be? Well, if you don’t count the cows, or the stubborn horses, it’s not that bad. Or the teasing of the ranch hands. Then there are the cacti. You have to watch the cacti. They’re sneaky. But ... Fun, clean romance
On 2/10 Amanda Chambers wrote: Mary Lynn and Jackson have worked hard to give their daughters all the culture and education they didn’t have access to growing up. Sometimes, Mary Lynn worries that they’re working a little too hard and pushing the girls too hard, but Jackson never does anything halfway and he won’t back down. ... Be Careful What You Pray For
On 12/5 Amanda Chambers wrote: Amanda Belle is living in Texas with her family when she meets Kent, an Army officer. With the start of the Civil War, Kent suddenly becomes “the enemy” as a Union soldier, and Amanda’s father forbids Kent and Amanda to even correspond. The story follows Amanda and her family through the war ... Great historical romance
On 10/8 Amanda Chambers wrote: This book drove me crazy. I was so creeped out that I kept wanting to stop reading, but I couldn't stop because I had to know what happened. Waking Hours was published by a Christian publisher, but don't make the mistake of thinking that means it's not a book that will keep you up at night. It just means ... Couldn't put it down!
On 9/13 Amanda Chambers wrote: In this book, we get more background on Lord Burleigh, as well as the Flinders-Petrie family. There is a lot of action in this story and there definitely aren't any dead spots... Well, maybe when Kit is staying with the cavemen. I could have used a little less detail there. This is a fun book that ... Book Review: The Bone House by Stephen R. Lawhead
On 9/9 Amanda Chambers wrote: Kit Livingston is living an unremarkable life in London (with the "social prospects of a garden gnome" - ha! I love that!) when he's approached by a man claiming to be his great-grandfather. Kit has stumbled upon a ley line - a door to another time and place. When Kit literally loses his girlfriend ... The Skin Map by Stephen R. Lawhead - Book Review
On 8/11 Amanda Chambers wrote: If you know about my no-crying rule for books, then you're probably wondering why I chose this book. I wondered the same thing. Fortunately, it was nothing like I expected. The focus of the story isn't on his escape from the burning tower, but on how he got to that point in the first place. A small part ... Excellent!
On 7/7 Amanda Chambers wrote: I finished A Place Called Blessing: Where Hurting Ends and Love Begins a few days ago and I've been thinking since then. Some books are like that. Sometimes, I finish a book and I can immediately sit down and write about it. Other times, I have to give it a day or two to sink in, or to think about what ... A Place Called Blessing by John Trent - Book Review
On 6/22 Amanda Chambers wrote: The Final Summit: A Quest to Find the One Principle That Will Save Humanity is a follow-up to The Traveler’s Gift. This is my first Andy Andrews book, so I started this book not knowing any background or what to expect. Andrews does a great job of filling the reader in on pertinent facts from The ... Full of Wisdom and Inspiration
On 4/21 Amanda Chambers wrote: The Hidden Magic of Walt Disney World is subtitled Over 600 Secrets of the Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Animal Kingdom. I didn’t count them, but this book certainly is packed full of information. Reading this book was like opening up a whole new world for me. Not only have ... The Hidden Magic of Walt Disney World - Book Review
On 4/18 Amanda Chambers wrote: Max on Life: Answers and Insights to Your Most Important Questions is written by pastor and author Max Lucado. With chapter headings like Hope, Hurt, Help, Him/Her, Home, Haves/Have-Nots, and Here-After, the author answers some of the most common questions asked about God and Christianity. Addressing ... Max on Life - Book Review
On 3/29 Amanda Chambers wrote: “Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls.” Jeremiah 6:16 The author believes that many people who leave "the church" do not leave because they no longer want to follow Jesus. Rather, they leave ... Back to Basics
On 2/14 Amanda Chambers wrote: Beautiful Mess takes us through the 20-year history of Diamond Rio, along with the personal histories of all six band members and the band’s pre-Diamond Rio days. By bouncing back and forth through the years, the book tells us how the band members changed for the first few years while being billed ... Hard to Read
