Two decades after the Civil War, Josephine Marcus, the teenage daughter of Jewish immigrants, is lured west with the promise of marriage to Johnny Behan, one of Arizona’s famous lawmen. She leaves her San Francisco home to join Behan in Tombstone, Arizona, a magnet for miners (and outlaws) attracted by the silver boom. Though united by the glint of metal, Tombstone is plagued by divided loyalties: between Confederates and Unionists, Lincoln Republicans and Democrats.
But when the silver-tongued Behan proves unreliable, it is legendary frontiersman Wyatt Earp who emerges as Josephine’s match. As the couple’s romance sparks, Behan’s jealousy ignites a rivalry destined for the history books…
At once an epic account of an improbable romance and a retelling of an iconic American tale, The Last Woman Standing recalls the famed gunfight at the O.K. Corral through the eyes of a spunky heroine who sought her happy ending in a lawless outpost—with a fierce will and an unflagging spirit.

My take on this book:
Historical fiction has always been one of my favorite genres to read so reading The Last Woman Standing was an easy choice for me. A fictionalized tale of the woman behind Wyatt Earp so to speak. I must admit a few of the beginning chapters sort of drug along for me, but to be fair the author was just giving the readers the backstory of Josephine Sarah Marcus also known as Sadie and for a while even called Josie. The man she went to Tombstone to marry wasn't the man she ultimately wound up with. It's the story of how she wound up with the legendary lawman Wyatt Earp. 

The Last Woman Standing is told with sass and flair, but there were a few poignant moments as well. The letter that Josephine kept from her father was one such instance that stood out for me.  The author captures the time and place of the story effortlessly pulling me into the days of the wild west.It was easy to see the town of Tombstone through the eyes of Josephine,  I could just imagine the scenes unfolding and how Josephine first met the imposing Wyatt Earp. One could almost imagine history happening just the way the author described. How accurate the story is I honestly couldn't say but for me I really enjoyed the historical setting and being able to recognize several famous names from history was great as well. A book I read in one sitting, it has spurred me to add Josephine Sarah Marcus to the list of people I plan on learning more about. Thanks Thelma Adams for a great read!

My thoughts on this book:
I always enjoy stories with a small town setting and when it's a southern town well that's even better and that's what I found with My Father's House but that was just the beginning of what intrigued me about this book. It's a story about a young woman's longing to be loved and how that longing sort of lead the course of her life. We learn about Lilly the main character and realize that her life wasn't always what it seemed, from a childhood that seemed ideal, but was less than to the choices of the heart that had her life careening off course. It's a story that is easily relatable especially for anyone who has ever really longed to be loved and made a few wrong turns looking for that love.   There is romance, splashes of suspense and interesting characters that really propel the plot of this story along.It was a story that kept me reading because I needed to know how the main characters story would conclude, and I must say the author provided just the ending that I longed for. Overall I found My Father's House an intriguing read, the way the author portrays Lily Rose I felt like I was actually reading about a real person. The issues from her marriage and how she ultimately prevailed kept me glued to the story. A story that deals with a few tough issues while also providing a few inspiring messages as well. A story that stayed with me long after I finished the final page.

Mollie ~ Bride of Georgia ~ Lorrie Farrelly


    27508888
  • File Size: 1604 KB
  • Print Length: 204 pages

  • Language: English
  • ASIN: B017N9OC0E




  • MOLLIE: BRIDE OF GEORGIA is fourth in the unprecedented 50-book AMERICAN MAIL-ORDER BRIDES series. Set in the last decade of the 19th century, MOLLIE is a story of courage and hope as a young woman, answering an advertisement for a mail-order bride, confronts an unknown and very challenging future. 

    Years of brutal warfare have left the South with far more women than men. What, Mollie Winters worries, could be so wrong with Dr. Nicholas Avinger that he was forced to advertise for a wife? 

    Despite her misgivings, Mollie takes a desperate leap of faith. Arriving in Atlanta with little more than a few pieces of clothing, two pairs of shoes, and the manuscript of her wildly melodramatic, romantic adventure novel, she prepares to start a new life with the attractive but irascible Dr. Avinger. 

    A haunted man who prefers animals to people, Nick Avinger has driven away more than one assistant, as well as his latest fiancée. Mollie Winters might just fill both bills, if only he didn’t want her so much. And if only he didn’t fear how much he would hurt her. 

    This unforgettable novel by the award-winning author of TERMS OF SURRENDER and TIMELAPSE is the emotional and riveting story of the healing power of love. 
My take on this book:
Mollie: Bride Of Georgia by Lorrie Farrelly is a wonderfully written mail order bride tale that takes place a few years after the civil war in Georgia.Mollie Winters responds to an ad placed in the Groom's Gazette and when she receives a response and a train ticket she heads to Atlanta to become a mail order bride. Nicholas Avinger is at the Atlanta train station to pick up supplies for the zoo when he meets Mollie and learns that she is there to become his mail order bride, a bride that he knew nothing about! Mollie takes it in stride and rents a room at the local boarding house, but when she shows up at the zoo where Nick works he realizes that he needs her help and more than that he feels an attraction to her. 

Loved this book! As someone who reads plenty of mail order bride genre stories Mollie: Bride of Georgia was an exceptional read, and the reason I say this is because the author not only provides a heart touching story between the two main characters she also provides snippets of humor, while also providing more than a few twists to a very interesting plot. The historical aspects were very interesting from the coming together of a zoo, to the diligent rules of pasteurization, and the effects of PTSD  it was really easy to see that the author had done her research, which made for a very readable, and relatable story.    Lorrie Farrelly creates a very interesting storyline around the main characters. First of all I fell in love with the strength of Mollie. When she realizes that her intended groom wasn't even expecting her she didn't swoon or wilt instead she rented a room and proceeded to try and sell her book.  It didn't take long for Nick to realize just how different that Mollie was either! Nick on the other hand was haunted by issues from the war. Ms. Farrelly handles the subject of PTSD very well, allowing the reader to understand how not all scars from war are shown on the outside! The fear that he could hurt someone he loved was devastating to him and pushing them away was his only answer. Mollie had other ideas though.  Plenty of secondary characters really round out the story quite nicely. Fans of the mail order bride genre will find this book a top notch read, but honestly it will appeal to anyone who enjoys historical fiction with a page turning plot that deals with the very real issue of how war affects the soldier long after he comes home.

Far West: The Diary of Eleanor HIggins

Nel Higgins is the sixteen-year-old daughter of Frank Higgins, a deranged Lutheran pastor. After Nel’s mother passes away, she finds herself and her sister, Annie, at the mercy of her father in Yankton, Dakota Territory, 1876. 
Bereft and frightened, Nel knows, deep in her heart, that neither she nor Annie will survive unless they can escape his evil clutches. Then, when unforeseen circumstances lead to Frank's sudden death, the two girls soon board the famous riverboat, the Far West. 
Once on board, Nel finds herself following the path of American destiny toward Fort Abraham Lincoln, Custer’s Last Stand and the Battle of the Little Bighorn! 
Readers and early reviewers are comparing this Historical Romance novel to FOREVER AMBER and THE UNSINKABLE MOLLY BROWN. It is filled with action, adventure, sorrow and joy and showcases the strength, fortitude and danger of the American frontier. 

My take on this book:

Far West: The Diary of Eleanor Higgins by Linell Jeppsen takes place when Indians were still fighting for their land and the west was a dangerous place. 

Sixteen year old Nel Higgins knows about danger her father Frank abused her and her siblings daily. After the death of her mother and younger brother it's up to her to protect her younger sister Annie. When Frank moves them west it doesn't take long for things to escalate and Nel makes a choice that will have her and Annie running from home in order to survive. 

I think if I had to describe Far West: The Diary of Eleanor Higgins in one word it would be captivating! When I started reading this book I just couldn't put it down because the author, Linell Jeppsen created characters that came to life and made me need to know how their stories would ultimately play out! Telling the story through the diary entries of Nel was fantastic.  I felt like I was inside the heart and mind of this young girl whose emotions and feelings really poured from the pages. I found myself heartbroken at times for her, and rooting her on whenever things would take a turn for the better. She became a living, breathing person within the pages of this story, and while I wanted to know the ending I hated to say goodbye to her. Speaking of endings the author kept me on the edge of my seat wondering what would ultimately happen, and just when I thought I could predict what would happen she did something totally different providing a twist that surprised and delighted me. Along with the character of Nel there were many other very well developed characters that really kept the momentum of this story moving along. Each one had their own personality and lent elements to the story that really provided for a richly detailed plot. Along with well written characters the historical aspects of the story really took this story to another level.  Ms. Jeppsen made me feel like I had stepped back into a time when there was so much history taking place, from Custer's Last Stand to women's issues to the introduction of root beer and ketchup it was those details that made this book such a great read for me. Far West: The Diary of Eleanor Higgins is a coming of age story that really is so much more!

The Valley Of The Dry Bones ~ Jerry B. Jenkins


  • Series: End Times
  • Paperback: 336 pages
  • Publisher: Worthy Publishing (May 31, 2016)
  • Language: English
  • ISBN-10: 1617950084
  • ISBN-13: 978-161795008




In The Valley of the Dry Bones, Jerry B. Jenkins overlays the ancient End Times prophecies of Ezekiel onto the landscape of modern California. After a 17-year drought, multiple earthquakes, and uncontrollable wildfires, the state is desolate. The United States President declares the state uninhabitable and irreparable, directing California's 39 million citizens to relocate. From the air, California looks like a vast abandoned sand box, but to a few groups of people, it's their home. With less than 1% of the population remaining in California at their own risk, the holdouts encounter a clash of cultures, ethnicities, religions, and politics that pits friend against friend with the future of California at stake.

My take on this book:
This is one of those end time stories that as you read it you think wow this could really happen! The story takes place in the future and the  premise is that after several natural disasters including earthquakes, wildfires and a severe seventeen year drought the state of California has been declared unlivable, a natural disaster area if you will, and the residents are told to vacate and relocate. Thing is there are some people who stay behind, including a group of christians who want to tell the others about God.   I wasn't sure I would care for this story but once I started reading it I became invested in the characters. Speaking of characters there were plenty of them, but each one was unique making it easy to follow along instead of feeling overwhelmed. This is one of those stories that makes you think what if something like this really happened. I think the author does a great job of creating a story that incorporates scripture into the storyline and provides several religious messages while managing not to sound preachy, something that is often hard to do.

There are plenty of interesting articles as well that really enhance Bible study,and the full color pages really pop, bringing the text to life in a great way.

My Toddler Bible ~ Juliet David


  • Age Range: 3 - 5 years
  • Hardcover: 224 pages
  • Publisher: Candle Books (April 27, 2016)
  • Language: English
  • ISBN-10: 1781282412
  • ISBN-13: 978-1781282410








Fans of Chris Embleton-Hall's cheerfully distinctive artwork will be eager to see this new Bible! Twenty stories―nine from the Old Testament and eleven from the New―are retold in a concise and friendly manner in a rounded, easy-to-read font. Very, very bright, and very, very fun!


My take on My Toddler Bible:
I love bright illustrations, there is something about the colorful pictures that bring a book to life for me, and with My Toddler Bible the illustrations are over the top great! The colors are so vibrant that youngsters are certainly going to be drawn to them. Now a bit about the book, it's a hardcover which is always good, and the pages seem sturdy enough, I was a bit disappointed that there wasn't a presentation page for this little book because I think it would be a wonderful gift, and the presentation page is always something I look for whenever I gift a special book such as this one. The table of contents makes it easy to find whatever story you might be looking for, it's broken down  into the old testament with nine stories of great people in the Bible  and those stories range from the beginning in the Garden of Eden to Jonah, I think one of my favorite stories was David and The Giant Bully, I loved the illustrations and the story provided detail.  The New Testament has eleven stories and ends on such a great note. Each story is told in a clear easy to understand manner while providing detail that brings the people to life. Youngsters will  love these stories, and I can even imagine them wanting to read along. Overall I really think this book would make a wonderful addition to daily reading, but would be perfect in a Sunday School setting as well. What a great way to teach young readers about some of the great people of the Bible.

None Like Him ~Jen Wilkin


  • Paperback: 176 pages
  • Publisher: Crossway (April 30, 2016)
  • Language: English
  • ISBN-10: 1433549832
  • ISBN-13: 978-1433549830






God is self-existent, self-sufficient, eternal, immutable, omnipresent, omniscient, omnipotent, sovereign, infinite, and incomprehensible.
We're not.
And that's a good thing.
Our limitations are by design. We were never meant to be God. But at the root of every sin is our rebellious desire to possess attributes that belong to God alone.
Calling us to embrace our limits as a means of glorifying God's limitless power, Jen Wilkin invites us to celebrate the freedom that comes when we rest in letting God be God.

My take on this book:
None Like Him by Jen Wilkin is written in an easy to understand manner that takes on the issue of how we are not like God and that's okay, more than okay really, it's how God made us. What that statement really means is that sometimes we try to strive to be like God but that really is impossible, instead we need to allow our lives to reflect God's great goodness in us, but to do that we must learn how to let God take the lead.

 This book touches on ten attributes that are truly of God. Page twenty-four of this book really grabbed my attention. The author provided two lists the first list is truly of God and the second list is what we can achieve once the Holy Spirit dwells in us. As I read these lists I began to realize that reflecting who God is can be an achievable goal. As we grow in our spiritual walk we can show attributes that reflect God for his glory. This book is really user friendly, each chapter addresses a different attribute that only God possesses. The stories that the author shares are personal and very easy to relate to. Each chapter includes verses for meditation, and questions for reflection and ends with encouragement for the user to write a prayer. Personally I have been using this book as a devotional, but because it is geared toward women I think that it would be perfect as a group study.

NKJV Chronological Study Bible


  • Imitation Leather: 1728 pages
  • Publisher: Thomas Nelson; Lea edition (May 3, 2016)
  • Language: English
  • ISBN-10: 0718076893
  • ISBN-13: 978-0718076894






The Bible that allows you to study Scripture in the order of events as they happened
The Chronological Study Bible presents the text of the New King James Version in chronological order - the order in which the events actually happened - with notes, articles, and full-color graphics that connect the reader to the history and culture of Bible times. It is the only NKJV study Bible arranged in chronological order.
Features include:
  • The entire NKJV text with translators’ notes, arranged in chronological order, provides absorbing and effective Bible study
  • Full-color illustrations of places, artifacts, and cultural phenomena give the reader a dramatic, “you are there” experience
  • Fascinating articles connect the Bible text to world history and culture
  • Daily Life Notes explain how people lived in Bible times
  • Time Panels and Charts show the flow of Bible history
  • In-text and full-page color maps of the biblical world assist study
Part of the Signature Series line of Thomas Nelson Bibles

My take on this Bible:
Have you ever thought about reading the Bible in chronological order instead of the traditional way that it was written? With the NKJV Chronological Study Bible you will experience the Bible in a new way. First I want to say that the exterior of the Bible is a soft imitation leather the color that I am reviewing is called earth brown and auburn, with the color being divided half way down the cover. The imitation leather feels    good in my hands and the gilded edge pages  really makes it look elegant. Inside the first thing I noticed was the presentation page something that I always look for if I am planning to gift a Bible. The text isn't to small and it is paired with stunning color pictures that are very eye appealing.  There are plenty of features to enhance the readability of this Bible and the ones that I am really enjoying are the historical overviews that provide descriptions of the changing times. The Daily Life feature is another that I seek out because it gives insight into what life might have been like during Bible times. I did notice that the copyright date for this Bible is 2008 so I can't really say for sure if there are any updated features with this latest release because I don't own one of the older releases. I will say that if you are looking to read the Bible chronologically this one really is great, it even has a few reading guides to help you along in your journey. Bottom line if you don't own a Thomas Nelson Chronological Bible this one is very good.

A DREAM OF MIRACLES BY RUTH REID | BLOG TOUR, GIVEAWAY, AND FACEBOOK PARTY

Amish widow Mattie vows never to love again . . . until a suspicious outsider with a shadowy past comes crashing into her fragile world.
Dream of MiraclesMattie Diener can barely keep it together. A young Amish widow and mother of two young children, she faces the lingering heartbreak of lost love, her son’s mysterious illness, and a torrent of accusations that threaten to undo her.
Bo Lambright is a fast-rising social services investigator whose high-society mother won’t rest until she finds his Mrs. Right. Despite Bo’s worldly success, the raw ache of a shadowy past and a series of unsettling dreams have left him reeling.
When Mattie and Bo cross paths, all signs point to disaster. Yet as they face a crucible of trials and tragedies together, longings begin to stir that seem destined only to end in more heartbreak. Is a miracle possible—not only of healing but of forbidden love? What secrets lie in Bo’s dreams? And will Mattie find the courage to face her uncertain future . . . or will she simply run away?


My take on this book:
Mattie Deiner's story is full of emotional twists providing for a must read story. Mattie is a recently widowed Amish mother with two children. When one of her children becomes ill she does what anyone would do she takes him to the doctor but when that doctor thinks that she has been abusing the child Mattie finds herself dealing with Child Protective Services and the person handling her case is Bo Lambright. Can Bo figure out what is going on without getting his heart involved?

I read a lot of Amish fiction and this one was a bit different, because Mattie finds herself being scrutinized by CPS which is an Englisher agency. Mattie's character was so easy to empathize with, the author made me feel like I was actually reading about a real person, it was easy to envision her heartaches and hurts, while I couldn't imagine being in her shoes but the author allowed  me to feel as if I had stepped into them for the length of this story.  It was interesting to see the differences between Amish and Englishers ideals and how that affected the way that many looked at Mattie. It was heart wrenching to see how Mattie was treated and it kept me hoping that all would work out in the end. While this is the third book in a series it can easily be read as a stand alone work. If you're looking for an Amish story that is so much more than an average romance this book is one that you should try.
