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,...

Finding a Memory Release week

Finding a Memory Release week

I just can’t help myself It seems that the older I get, the more emotional I become. I smell a blanket from my grandma’s house and my eyes leak. I watch a well produced movie and I tear up. Don’t even get me started on when my three month old nephew coos (Can you say,...

Murder at the Empire

Murder at the Empire

My Thoughts A tale that made me feel various emotions, Murder at the Empire had me flipping through pages, eager to see what’s next. I must admit, in the beginning, I was irritated with all the male power tripping but I know it was all part of the time, and the story....

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,...
