Book Review: Last Chance Hero by Cathleen Armstrong

I'm really enjoying this series!  I think Dr. Jessica MacLeod is one of my favorite people that has come to town.  She seems even more different than the rest of the characters have been.  What I really like about her is she doesn't like football! Football is huge in Last Chance and they've just recently had a local hero come back into town, Andy Ryan.  Everyone in the town lives and breathes football and they thing that Andy is going to bring life back into their football team as the new coach.  When he and Jessica meet they seem to hit it off fairly well until he invites her to the game. When she lets him know she doesn't like football that shocks everyone.  Oh, and she also doesn't like green or red sauce from the diner.  She's throwing the locals for a loop on those two. They aren't quite sure if they can support the new doctor if she doesn't like football or the two local sauces! This book is a great addition to the series and I'd highly recommend it.

Book Review: The MISTRESS of TALL ACRE by Laura Frantz

I really enjoyed reading this book and how the characters were developed.  I especially like Sophie and how her relationship developed with the daughter of Seamus.  Since the American Revolution is over Sophie is struggling and isn't sure how she is going to survive anymore.  Sophie meets Lily Cate out on a walk one day and they seem to bond quickly.  Seamus had lost his wife and Lily Cate enjoyed having that mother figure.  Seamus and Sophie become friendly and when he finds out about Sophie's financial struggles he is wanting to help her.  He eventually asks her to marry him, in name only, and the three of them embark  on a brand new journey.

Book Review: the chase TRUSTING GOD with YOUR happily ever after

This was a wonderful book and I think all parents should share it with their children.  I don't think many children at the ages of 12, 13 or 14 are thinking OR praying for their future spouses in life.  I'm not sure that most parents are praying for their children's spouses either.  If we are I'm not sure that we are doing it daily. This is a moving story of parents that started praying for their child and that child's future spouse the day THEY got married. These two people that later got married were taught have praying for their spouse their entire life.  It wasn't easy for them to try and wait for that spouse, but it was something that was important to them.  I think this book could make an amazing difference in the life of our children if we could get them to see how prayer really does work in our lives.  This was a wonderful book and I just couldn't put it down.  I can't wait to share it with others.
