Hurt Road by Mark Lee (a review)

This memoir by a contemporary Christian musician from the group known as Third Day will be interesting to you if you are a fan of that group. Maybe you’ve even heard of Mark Lee? His life experiences form the bulk of the tale. His major, devastating accident when he was still a schoolboy, his father’s […]

The Day the Angels Fell, Shawn Smucker

I received this book from Revell Publishing. This is what I consider to be middle grade fantasy. It would have excellent appeal to adult fantasy readers as well. The writing in this debut novel is smooth, clear and engaging. I was impressed by the ease with which the author drew the reader into the story […]

The Christmas Blessing, by Melody Carlson

Yay! Another book by Melody Carlson! Happy to review this book I received from Revell Publishing.

But this innocent girl…, wait! I […]

It’s not spoiling the story to say that she was considered dead, but is alive and living in the United States…anything more might spoil the story, so get ready for a tale that will provide […]

The Return, by Suzanne Woods Fisher

A Matter of Trust, by Susan May Warren

Susan Karsten here with another book review. Susan May Warren is a best-selling author. She often features unusual settings and unusual careers–if you can call being a snowboarder a career 🙂 What impresses me is the knowledge she brings to her settings. The information about snow, ski venues, mountains, rescue, snowboarding, and so forth is […]
