A Hear’s Rebellion by Ruth Axtell

I really enjoyed this story. It was so easy to like Jessamine and Lancelot. We knew they were perfect for each other way before they knew it. It was a great story and did not get boring. Look forward to many more by this author. I received this from the book club network for a fair and honest opinion.

What Has Become Of You by Jan Elizabeth Watson

This was a spooky tale. It made you think about whether you would want to be a teacher because of what can happen to you if you try to help one of your students. This kept going back and forth as to who you thought might be the killer. Loved all the twists and turns. Look forward to reading more books by this author. I received this book from first to read for a fair and honest opinion.

Falling into Place: A Memoir of Overcoming by Hattie Kauffman

I enjoyed this story. I don’t normally read too much nonfiction but was asked if I would review this by Smith Publicity, Inc. and am glad I did. Reading about what she went through as a child and then with her divorc was enlightening. It was very sad. It is surprising how well some people turn out even with a trying childhood. I am glad she was able to get through all of her troubles.

This made a fantastic read. I really enjoyed reading about west Amana. I lived in main Amana for about 6 months after I was first married. It was always an interesting place.

Instead , they find him dead and move to west Amana where they can work and live until they can decide what to do.
They meet Dirk and he helps them to live again. Then, bad things happen and she needs to learn to trust in God. I really enjoyed this. I received this from Bethany House for a fair and honest review.

Suspicion by Joseph Finder

This was a wonderful book. Every time I thought I knew what was going to happen something different accured. I had a hard time putting this book down. I hope to read more by Joseph Finder. I wasn’t sure whether to like the characters or not but they all really grew on you. I received this book from First to read for a fair and honest opinion.

The quilted heart by Mona Hodgson

This is three novellas in one. Each is a story that leads up to her next set of books about a wagon train. Each of the three was a wonderful story. The first story is called Dandelions on the Wind. It is about Maren and Rutherford. Maren is losing her sight and wants to go back to Denmark to be with her family when she meets Rutherford who comes back after the civil war. They learn to love one another.
The next is called Bending Toward the Sun. This is about Emilie and Quaid. Can Emilie love Quaid who is an Irishman when she is German. Will her father allow her to love an Irishman or not. Very nice romance.
The third story is called Ripples Along the Shore. This one is about Caroline and Garrett. Garrett is going to lead the wagon train that is leaving from their town. Caroline is a widow and decides that she needs to change her life and is going to join the wagon train. This then leads us towards the Hearts Seeking Home series
I cannot wait to read the next book.
I received this book through blogging for books for a fair and honest opinion.http://monahodgson.com/http://waterbrookmultnomah.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/11/SneakPeek_QuiltedHeart.pdfhttp://waterbrookmultnomah.com/author-spotlight.php?authorid=108368
