When three children are abandoned, the couple takes them into their home. Along with this decision, the family comes across many unexpected trials in their lives such as alcoholism and the challenges that come with teenagers.
This was a touching, wonderful book that I did not want to end. The blessing is there are to be more books in this series revolving around the extended family.

Book Review: The Reason by William Sirls

“Just believe” are two mighty words to help see someone through a tragedy.  However, the action that is required is not always easy.
William Sirls in “The Reason” use these words to be the center of this powerful novel. As I read this work I could not believe that his was his debut story. It was so well-written and the story held my attention through the story of the construction worker, the doctor, the son of an employee at a local church and more.

I have enjoyed this book and are very grateful to the author and for allowing me to review this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Great Little Gifts to Knit: 30 Quick and Colorful Patterns by Jean Moss offers projects for today’s knitters using techniques from around the world.
As a knitter that always wanted to learn how to complete something with Fair Isle knitting and Japanese Shadow knitting, this book offered projects with pictures and patterns that were easy to follow. There are different styles in shawls, fingerless gloves, socks, mittens, hats and more.

Thank you NetGalley, Taunton Press and Jean Moss for allowing me the opportunity to review this book.


Book Review: What Galileo Saw: Imagining the Scientific Revolution

What Galileo Saw: Imagining the Scientific Revolution by Lawrence Lipking is a well-written book about how the last years of the beliefs of witchcraft could have been the downfall of the scientific teachers of the day. Teachers such as Galileo, Newton, Kepler, Descartes and more each faced trials even as their teaching proved the former as false teachings.

This book was a nice Christian romance. I gave it 4 stars because of the repetitive nature of it and the predictability, but overall it was good.
