Anchor In the Storm by Sarah Sundin

Anchor In the Storm by Sarah Sundin

What a great book! This is one of my favorites, and I got it through Bethany house publishers. I’m actually sad I didn’t request the real book. This books was full of suspense, mystery, romance, everything that makes a great book.

This book is second in this particular series. It focuses on a young girl named Lillian Avery, who possesses a handicap. I will refrain from mentioning what it is due to the fact it is a significant part of the book. She has had bad relationships in her pass an is very closed about her feelings and vows to never get that close to a man again. Until that is, Archer Vandenburg, a very wealthy sailor who wants be nothing but to just be a navy sailor an hates his wealth, walks into her life.

Throughout the book they both struggle with their faith in God and how he should be their sole anchors in life. This book was great and there’s a third installment! I forgot to mention I enjoyed the fact that there were discussion questions in the back of the book that really helped tie the story together and helped apply the lessons learned in the book to your life.

Again wonderful book and too bad I didn’t get the paperback. 😦
You can find this book on Amazon and Barnes and noble.

I Don’t Get You by Sherry Graf

What an enlightening booklet! I couldn’t have found a more helpful book. Plus, I got it through Tyndale Publishing’s Blog network for free to review. This book shed light on relationships; serious or casual. It helped the reader to see when a relationship was going too far too fast or help decide on how far the relationship should go through 5 simple steps. Those steps are the following sharing guidelines:bio-data, testimony-faith story, dreams, fears, and deepest hurts. Yes, we may share some of these with our friends, but the book is really speaking about the deepest personal fears, dreams, and hurts that you have dealt with.  The book gave light on so  many things that I hadn’t really seen before or took time to notice.

This booklet was an easy read and really helped me figure out how to get through a tough time with a friend.  Grab your copy at the stores below. It helped me, so I’m sure it will help you look at the different side of things.

Amazon: Kindle for $2.37; 10 pack of paperbacks $19.99

Barnes and Noble: $2.49 for all editions

Stay tuned for next week’s post on Anchor In The Store by Sarah Sundin. It’s really been a great read and I’m sure I can use what I read in this book to relate to it… 🙂

Happy Reading!

The Magnolia Duchess by Beth White

Today, I’m sharing with you a book that has been long over due- The Magnolia Duchess by Beth White- that I received via ebook from Baker Publishing Group and Net Galley. The setting for this book was during the War of 1812- the latter half. This book was about a young girl, Fiona Lanier, in her twenties, who lived at a ship yard with her uncle and brothers. Her parents had died at sea and her twin brother is in the military but is a prisoner at War in a British Ship. She has her faith and her houses. Until an old friend named Charlie, a British Red Coat- the enemy, wines up on her beach.

At first, Charlie doesn’t remember who he is, but soon remembers her and an attraction begins to rise between them. However, Charlie has yet to come to Christ and he is the enemy by all means. Fiona and her brothers soon learn that they could possibly use Charlie to get her brother released if the right dignitaries are involved. The story goes on and Fiona is quiet the rebel at times when it comes to being independent. She wears pants and everything!!! J She’s some like a Joan of Ark with guts and faith. But I think you should get the book to find out more how the story ends.

What did I think of the book?

Well this book had a great story line and a lot of historical facts that even I was sure of. The reason I feel this book took so long for me to write about is that because of all these facts; it got sort of distracting and boring to read at parts when it came to battle scenes. Also, there was a lot of date hopping and voice changing. One time it is Fiona, then the next time it is Charlie, or even Fiona’s cousin that enters the picture by the 5th chapter. Otherwise the tale of two faithful people who never give up on each other despite being enemies was very interesting and intriguing.

Where to purchase this book?

I always recommend Amazon, but there are other places you can find them. However, here is a link to the book and the cost for comparison.

Kindle: $9.99; Paperback: $13.28
