This entire series was a delight to read and the final story of the Walker family was no exception. I was so happy to see that Raegan and Bear were finally getting their chance at a happily-ever-after. These two haven’t had an easy life, but they’re stronger because of it. And the lessons they learn about themselves, and ultimately God, is the best part of all.
Everything I’ve come to expect from one of Melissa Tagg’s books was included in this novel. A charming setting, an adorable, quirky family, and a sweet love story make the perfect combination. The spiritual growth of the characters deepens the lesson for them and the readers.
Jennifer loves a good book. Not only does she read and write them, she gets to take care of them at her part-time job at her local library. She resides in central Ohio with her husband and two children, is a member of American Christian Fiction Writers (ACFW) and a graduate of The Ohio State University. She makes room to write in between being a busy wife and mom and despite the fact her cats like to walk on her keyboard. You can connect with her online at www.jenniferadavids.com
I’m a work-from-home mom of one super cute baby girl (pictures to prove it) and I write novels. I married my hero Vince, who is my love and my polar opposite. I write, he tears it up with the red pen. I break cars and other mechanical things, he puts them back together. He’s nailed the “speak the truth” thing, and I bring the “in love” part. But the real spark to our marriage is that he does not like chocolate and I… like it a normal amount. We love and live from our little house in the woods near Lake Michigan, which is undergoing a constant renovation. For more, visit https://jdpstories.com/
This book, just as every Lori Benton book before it, had me hanging on its every word. This story is meant to be savored, from the first page to the very last. I was immersed into Clare and Jeremiah’s world for the entire breathtaking journey. It’s another one of those stories I’ll carry with me for a very long time.
What stood out to me the most with Many Sparrows was its spiritual theme of trusting God in all things and waiting on His perfect will no matter what. The message of faith is so important to the problems and heartache Clare faces. And the dear woman faces a great deal of it. Watching her struggle and grasp after peace offers a challenge for all readers. A message for all of us to ponder. Simply stunning. Read more ›
I was totally intrigued by this story the moment I heard about it and first saw the cover. That curious fascination stayed with me through the entire book too. This was the first book by Roseanna White I’d had the privilege of reading. Now I understand why readers are always singing her praises. 🙂
Rosemary was a strong character from the get-go and her gritty determination and bravery stole the show for me. I loved the natural conflict that arose from our heroine being a thief. She does what she must to survive and in the process discovers who she really is beyond the orphan. She’s passionate about her family and her work. It’s no surprise our hero is drawn to her.

The first Christian fiction books I remember reading growing up was Janette Oke’s Love Comes Softly series. This debut novel, Under This Same Sky, took me back to the prairie and the sweetness of first love in a similar fashion.
Becky’s bravery and kindness made me like her from the start. Her coming-of-age story really has it all – family, friendship, love. My heart broke to see her doubt God during her pain and loss, but she matures in her faith and grows in character very nicely through the story. Matthew is just as likable and sweet. His heart for the Lord makes him a perfect fit for our heroine. 🙂 Read more ›
Sarah Monzon is a Navy chaplain’s wife and a stay at home mom to the two cutest littles in the world. Playing pretend all day with them isn’t enough, she spends the evenings after their heads hit the pillow to create her own imaginary characters. When she isn’t in the world of make believe, she can be found in the pine forests of western Washington taking care of her family, fostering friendships, and enjoying all the adventures each day brings.
Her debut novel, The Isaac Project, skyrocketed to Amazon bestseller status while her Sophomore book, Finders Keepers, won the 2017 SELAH award.
It only took one sentence for me to be completely captivated by this book. It was one of those stories I just couldn’t put down and stayed up way too late to finish. 🙂 Freedom’s Ring offers a rich tale of courage in the face of danger and hope after great hurt. It’s a beautiful journey for the characters and readers to share together.
The split timeline really added unique layers to the story and I was pleasantly surprised to find both heroines accounts told in first person. Each character was so well-developed and was transformed through their experiences.
I was instantly drawn into Liberty’s life in Boston in 1777. My heart was in my throat as I followed alongside her through her heartache and healing. There were some very interesting twists in her story that I did not expect. Her patriotism and faith change her and her lessons may just change readers too. Read more ›
