BOOK REVIEW: Home All Along by Beth Wiseman

I am so not ready for this series to end.  It’s not really over right?  It’s like a teaser and then a pleasant surprise next year with another installment?  Right?  That’s the story I’m telling myself as I write this review anyway.  Which, by the way, is my 100th review this year.  I literally just hopped over to Goodreads and upped my reading challenge goal yet again.   I can’t think of a better book to have that 100 book place of honor.  Don’t get me wrong, I probably actually can but I’m glad it was an amazing book by an amazing author that holds that honor.  There are so many choices that aren’t as amazing.  I need more time with Charlotte and her extended adopted-ish Amish family.  There’s so much unfinished business, in my opinion, that can’t be finished.  Hint, hint.  OK, I’ll stop whining and hinting and get down […]

This is my 99th review for this year.  Approaching a milestone or something.  I have to say it doesn’t get any easier despite the number you many put there.  Sometimes reviews almost literally write themselves.  Not often and when they do I cherish the moment.  Most of them, it’s HARD.  How do I get the point across of how amazing something is or how much I liked it without giving the good stuff away.  Rarely however, it’s more like how do I put a positive spin on a book that just didn’t do it for me.  I don’t mean rosy, happy, positive but more a realizing that what doesn’t work for me will always find it’s intended audience.  Thankfully this book falls in category 2 up there.  I LOVED it but for the love of tomatoes the review is a struggle.  This book is more then just the synopsis.  Moriah, […]

Do you remember that song ‘Froggie went a’courtin’ from childhood.  You know the annoyingly repetitive song with a catchy tune that sears itself into your brain.  It’s coming to you know isn’t it, un-huh.  I’d forgotten about that song.  Until this book.  Sometimes it’s the little things that take a story from good to great or even from great to amazing.  Uh-huh.  OK, sorry I’ll stop that, u-huh.  When this book came available from Revell, despite other books that stood at attention as well, I knew I needed to read it.  Somehow I’ve scheduled a lot of 1940-something books this week.  There’s something about WW2 era strong women that you lend itself to a good story.  Fran is a strong woman, the man she thought she’d marry and grow old together while raising a family finds a new love in Brittan during the war so she takes off on an […]
