Book Review: A Place in His Heart by Rebecca DeMarino

I absolutely loved this book! This is another new author to be and I really enjoyed her writing style.  I really enjoy that there were scriptures included in the book. Another thing that I truly enjoy is that the entire story wasn't always happy. Life isn't happy 100% of the time and I often don't care for the books that seem to portray it as such. This book showed the ups and downs, but showed how God was involved in the lives of these people during it all.  I can't think of anything that I didn't like about the story and I will be reading more by this author.



** I was given this book to read in exchange for my honest review.

Book Review: Atlas Girl by Emily Wierenga

I had a little bit of a hard time with this book I have to say. Some parts I was very into and others I kind of drifted away a little. It's a very powerful book as a whole. The author has an amazing story from her anorexia struggles, her travels, her relationship with her parents, etc.  I think we often are spending our entire lives searching for something to make life "perfect" and usually it's right in front of our faces.  I enjoyed how Emily Wierenga really shows her heart and soul through this book.

Book Review: Love Comes Home by Ann H. Gabhart

I really enjoy reading books that are from times long ago.  The Merritt sisters are all interesting characters in their own ways.  Each of the sisters have someone involved in the war and it's interesting how they are all dealing with it.  I enjoy reading about the family dynamics and how different life was then compared to now.  I haven't read anything by Ann Gabhart before, but I really enjoyed how alive she made the characters for me, so I will be checking into her other books in the future.
