Let’s just get this out of the way, when Ma tells you that you have to read a book – you read the book.  I didn’t have time to read a non-review book.  I was drowning in review books.  I was behind on reading the books.  But Ma said it, and amazingly enough I did it (don’t get use to it Ma!).  And I’m so glad I did.  Don’t get me wrong, it wasn’t perfect but oh the biscuits […]

Goodreads Monday

Goodreads Monday

Goodreads Monday is a weekly meme hosted by Lauren’s Page Turners. To take part, you simply choose a random book from your TBR and show it off. Don’t forget to check out her blog and link back to Lauren’s Page Turners.  Since it’s Minions Week on the blog again it seems only relevant to pull a book that I’ve had sitting on my Kindle list for a while aimed at the Kidlets.  A free public domain book, this is a collection of original fairy tales.  No frills, no illustrations, I’m curious if they are the sugar coated version I grew up with or the real deal they were original written and meant to be?  I guess when I get around to actually reading about it I will know the answer! The fairy tale is a poetic recording of the facts of life, an interpretation by the imagination of its hard […]

BOOK REVIEW: Gladden the Heart by Olivia Newport

“When you have experienced the Holy Ghost as I have, you would see that it is difficult to turn back.” When the lively fervor of nineteenth century revivalism endangers the staid customs of the Amish community in the lush but rugged Kishacoquillas Valley of central Pennsylvania in 1847, the Amish church must deal with a divisive question: What is a genuine spiritual experience? The question turns personal when Susanna’s beloved cousin Noah begins preaching while under trances and even though he is not a minister he gives long sermons that attract increasing attention. Curious, she helps to keep Noah safe during his trances. At the same time Adam, Susanna’s intended, feels pressure from the bishop to speak out against the ways of revivalism. Susanna and Adam are pushed to opposite sides of a controversy that threatens their traditional Amish faith..  Now they must grapple with whether love is possible…even if […]
