Crooked Paths Straight

Crooked Paths Straight

My thoughts Elizabeth Wehman is crafted a story that is both engaging in page turning. It is the story of the first settlers in a small inconsequential area of Michigan. It’s a story of their struggle in the snowy wilderness amongst towering pine trees, wild animals,...

The Lost Dutchman’s Secret

The Lost Dutchman’s Secret

My Thoughts Having known the story of Rumplestillskin, I picked up on its underlying theme quickly. It had been a fairytale I’d enjoyed as a little girl. This adaptation of the story was interesting for sure and the author made all the right elements work. But… The...

The Nutcracker Suite

The Nutcracker Suite

My Thoughts Ever since I was a little girl, the nutcracker has been one of my favorite Christmas tales. I remember watching Baryshnikov slay mice and fly across the stage as the nutcracker. In fact one year for Halloween she dressed as Clara and carried a little...

Lost in Darkness

Lost in Darkness

Rahab’s Courage

Rahab’s Courage

My Thoughts Oh my heart—it cries and rejoices at the same time over the impact of Rahab’s Courage. Where do I begin? There is so much to unpack with this beautiful, and yet gut wrenching, story of the ancestor of Jesus. Naomi Craig gives us so much more to consider...

The Last Gasp

The Last Gasp

My Thoughts So, I regret to inform readers that it has been a long time since I've read a Chautona Havig book. *Gasp* I know, I know. I have failed. But let me say this, I am glad I snatched up this one and I was reminded why I love her work so much. For starters,...

The Silver Shadow

The Silver Shadow

What lingers in the shadows… If you have followed my reviews throughout this series, you know how I feel about it. These authors are talented and their stories are gripping. The Silver Shadow is no different. In fact, it might be the best (but I won’t make that...
