Just placed a hold on the last book in the series and I am so excited!! Lynn Austin has quickly become one of my favorite authors for sure!

In book four, we go from the good reign of Hezekiah to the confused reign of sin his son Manasseh brings and we explore how this affects those closest to him. We also find out how God can use suffering to work His will through our lives and show us how to help others.

Crazeedi Sounds like a great series, I need to check it out! 3mo

Thanks to Sherlock Holmes and Irene Adler, Sherlock's skills and spirit still live in the form of a young lady whose deductive powers seem matched by no one! In The Daughter of Sherlock Holmes, the two Watsons and the new Sherlock are out to solve a complicated mystery involving treasure, codes, and murder...couldn't put it down!

A short, educational, easy read and honestly quite entertaining! The Dual gives a behind the scenes look at the lives of the men behind the famed dual. It's really amazing to see how their lives had crossed so many times before that point and how they influenced the shaping of the American government.

I LOVED this book! In this autobiography, Nabeel is so open, so honest, and so real. Giving insights on his family life growing up as a Muslim and his journey to finding truth in Jesus, Nabeel lets his readers see God's love from a different perspective.

Side note: Nabeel Qureshi has since gone on to be with the God he came to know as his own...What a story and testimony. ❤

This was my first book by Tosca Lee, and, although I am interested in Biblical and historical fiction, this book wasn't highly impressive to me. It was an easy read and intreaguing, but I found some of the assumptions a little strange. Overall, not a bad read, but not my fave.

I'm kind of backtracking here, but I realized there were a few book reviews I had yet to cover. 👍

Honestly, The Screwtape Letters, is my personal favorite book and most likely will be my new go-to. Written in letters between two demons vying for a man's soul, C.S. Lewis combines his somewhat fantastical writing style and his deep spirituality to create an entertaining yet starkly spiritual and knowledgeable read.

Daisey This is one of the books that is on my “impacted my life” list. 🤔 So many interesting things to ponder! 10mo

So, I'm not a romance novel reader, but this book is a definite exception! 💕 A godly young lady and missionary's daughter, Adelina is commanded to marry the heathen ruler when he falls in love with her and she can only trust that God has a plan and He will protect her. Read this book to find out how an impossible and horrid situation brings love and redemption to Adelina and everyone around her! (Based on a true story)

Other than a few inappropriate areas (I do have quite a strict reading standard, though ☺) this book was wonderfully enthralling! Jennifer Ryan explores the lives of the individuals of Chilbury and the readers discover how events can completely change people's lives, how love can have affect in the strangest ways, and, most of all, how we can endure hardships through our relationships with each other.

I don't normally read "new-age" biographies, but I really had a lot of fun with this book. ☺ It was funny, cute, and (for myself) very relatable. It showed the reality (both the many struggles and triumphs) of the lives and marriage behind our beloved "Fixer Upper" couple...definitely reccomend for an enjoyable weekend read. ?

What would it be like to be the archaeologist that makes the find that will essentially destroy the faith and hope of millions around the world and turn you into the most hated person living in civilization. That is the world of the main character, Anna; will she be able to hold on to her faith?

An easy and quick Christian novel exploring themes like faith, God's will and the willingness of men to give up what they treasure under trial.

It is so wonderful to be reminded, in this crazy hectic world, of the good in people, even in times of hate and war. The kind of good that give people no desire to continue a war and that honors a celebration revered by many for the love it brings.

Pros:
✔ views directly from men on the front
✔ historical content
✔ great narrative
✔ intreaguing true Christmas story
Cons:
✔ long chapters
✔some German phrases without translations
