The subtitle of this book is “The Timeless Story of Christmas”, but that is over simplifying the story. This book, although it does deal with the birth of Christ, is actually a book about immigrants and refugees searching for a safe welcoming in a new land. It is timeless because, unfortunately, there have always been … Continue reading Refuge by Anne Booth and Sam Usher
I love Jack Reacher. I think I am in awe of him. Everytime a new book comes out by Lee Child, I rush to get it. Some authors are just like that, but then when you finish the book (in one sitting because you can not put it down) you go into a kind of … Continue reading Past Tense by Lee Child
Check out my books from the festival! So excited to read these!

The series is set in New York City and, more specifically, in DeMarko’s (Harry’s) neighborhood.

Being a great Mom, she blends into the story and delves into her … Continue reading Captain No Beard Series by Carole P. Roman

There is enough factual information to make it educational with Saturn’s rings and various constellations. Even though … Continue reading Rocket Bye by Carole P. Roman
This is definitely one of the most important books I have ever read. Bourgeault does a wonderful job of bringing all of the modern historical research together and blending it with scripture to provide a much more complete and accurate picture of who Jesus is and what Jesus was actually saying. She bases her findings … Continue reading The Wisdom Jesus by Cynthia Bourgeault
I read this book in 2 sittings. It is an easy solid read. Cudney switches back and forth between two major characters, Molly (Mom) and Brianna (daughter). For Brianna this is a coming of age story where as Molly is forced to deal with her past. Brianna does not know who her father is and … Continue reading Father Figure by James J. Cudney
