Inescapable, by Nancy Mehl, is an intriguing novel. With the main character, Lizzie, having lived in a big city and a small Mennonite village, the reader can sense there will be tensions between the two cultures will arise. These and other scenarios makes this book one that is difficult to put down until the end.
Mehl is a talented author and even though this is the first of her books I have read, I know it will not be the last.

For a first novel, Paul Yoder picked an immense topic. God in This cave sends the reader on a familiar journey set in modern time. I think Mr. Yoder did a fine job. There is additional editing that needs to be done but congratulations on this epic work. I look forward to reading more from you in the future.

Praise God!! That is what I wanted to say over and over as I read The Song; The Ultimate Love Story. The title does tell what this is about… God’s love for us is the ultimate love story. This was such an enjoyable read and I want to share this love with all of my friends.
I highly recommend this to everyone; it is the ultimate feel good read as the reader experiences God’s love through every word.
I am so glad that I was given this book by the author and bookfun.org in exchange for my honest and fair review.
A New Resolution by Rose Dee is a book that has unexpected life issues throughout it. The story is set in
Queensland and the two main characters show
how being a Christian does not mean that their past lifestyles do not affect
others they may meet. Each of them had had sexual partners before they became
Christians and the way they face this can help others that may face this issue.
This was a well-written book that presented difficult subjects and how it is hard to come across the best decision at the time. Because of this, it is easy to identify with the characters, which helps the lessons taught to be more easily received.

Never-Ending Night, by Tanya Stowe, tells the story of these people and makes it intriguing. Once I picked up this story I could not put it down. Stowe knows how to build a book to a wonderful climax and then finish it so that the reader is satisfied with the reading experience. I look forward to more work by this author.

Sara’s life was turned upside down when her husband, a DEA agent, was killed. She was placed in witness protection, but that did not work, as someone tried to shoot her. With a myriad of other actions aimed at her and her late-husband, Sara did not know who to trust.
This is a suspenseful, action-packed book that was very hard for me to put down. Peggy Levesque, the author of Ashes in the Wind, is a talented writer and I look forward to anything else that she may write. I recommend this book highly.
Ashes in the Wind was given to me by the author and bookfun.org in exchange for my honest review.
