I like this book because you can easily find promises from the Bible that apply to your current situation. For example, if you are feeling discouraged, you look in that chapter. Or, if you feel resentful, there is a chapter for that, etc. It is also helpful when you want to have a verse to encourage someone else--easy to find.

Good, easy read! Mystery along with the romance. It seems like the romance part of it needed more development, but the mystery was pretty intriguing.

I enjoyed this final book in the Escape to Paradise trilogy. It delves deeply into spiritual warfare and how God has a purpose for our lives. It is interesting to see each of the main characters come to the realization that God had brought them to Brazil for a higher purpose that they could have ever imagined.

This book revolves around the on-again, off-again romance between James and Angeline. It is heart-rending to see the two of them trying to deal with their past, as their love for each other grows. Both have much to accept and overcome--in themselves and in each other.

I love the addition of the pirates to this novel. They add much color and interest. I am looking forward to reading more books by MaryLu Tyndall.

Accidentally Amish isnt a typical Amish book in that the main character, Annie Frieson, is not Amish. Also, this work is actually 2 parallel stories interwoven into one novel. In addition to the contemporary, romantic suspense of Annie, there is a second story about Annies ancestors, who came to America in 1737.

The main story, about Annie, takes the reader quickly on a chase as Annie flees from her former boyfriend and lawyer, whom she no longer trusts. Annies frightful flight from the city terminates in an Amish barn far from her hectic life as a software developer. There she meets the Beilers as her world and her heart collide with the world of the Amish.

I enjoyed reading Accidentally Amish. I like the way the stories move right along. The characters are interesting and have unique personalities. I especially like the historical story about Jakob and Verona, who along with their five children, left Switzerland and came to American seeking religious freedom. The hardships they endured with resolution, for their faith, are difficult to imagine.

I am not convinced that Annies decisions are totally realistic, so it will be interesting to see what happens in the book that follows.


Adventures in Food
Review Date: 3/5/2007


12. The book was put out by the Baptist women of Plainfield, NJ, perhaps in the 1980s or earlier. It has some very good recipes, and quite a good variety. Many different cakes and bars, and numerous unbaked, frozen and refrigerator desserts. The vegetable chapter has interesting and varied recipes. There is a recipe for Apple Waffles that sounds good.

After the Snow Falls is a thought-provoking book. I think this story is a good study of human behavior. If you read to get insight into people and how their past experiences might impact their behavior, you might want to read After the Snow Falls.

What effect might it have on a young daughter to see her father just walk away one day? As an adult can she forgive and free herself from her past? What about the father? Is it possible for himafter many years--to finally take responsibility for his past mistakes? What would it take to make that happen?

How might parents react and behave after their child is diagnosed with a life-threatening illness. What do they expect from each other? What do they ask of themselves?

If you dont mind an intense read, I think you will find this book worth your time. Hope shines through at unexpected moments.

This is a really good story set in 1880's Denver, Colorado. To me, more than anything, it is a story of forgiveness--not only in the usual sense of forgiving others, but in the sometimes magnanimous effort of forgiving oneself.

There are many interesting social issues that play into the story, which add a richness and depth that keep the reader engaged. The glaring issue is prostitution and lack of opportunity for woman, in which the author gives the reader interesting background information concerning the illegal trafficking of minors over a hundred years ago.

Dessa, the main female character, obviously has a love for God and for her mission in life, but her lack of foresight and naïveté push her into awkward and sometimes dangerous situations. This propensity seems to bring out the best in her suitors, as they vie for the privilege of not only protecting her, but rescuing her.

This is a very satisfying story. It is good to see many of the characters make positive changes in their lives.
