Have you ever picked up the second book within a series to find that it is really confusing if you haven’t read the previous book prior? You won’t have to worry about that with Hearts Made Whole. This is definitely a must read!
Jody Hedlund has been on my to-read list for awhile now and I was not disappointed. Hedlund has a way of story-telling that you keep you glued to the pages to find out what is going to happen. My favorite part was watching where each character started in the beginning and how they developed in the end. Many topics brought up were very realistic and relatable and will encourage readers.

Genre: Fiction, Biblical Fiction
 
I was completely blown away by this novel. Mesu Andrews has a talent for writing biblical historical books.
It’s refreshing to know that there are some good Christian novels out there that are worth reading. It’s fascinating, engaging, thrilling, and causes one to stop and think. Mesu Andrews also knows how to tie in the Word of God without it being so overwhelming or preachy. We all live in fear of something, whether it’s death or childbearing like Anippe or something else. It’ll definitely change your perspective. Read the rest of this entry

Genre: Fiction, Historical, World War II

When I first received this book, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. I am fascinated by the stories of World War II so I knew a little bit of what to expect and that it wasn’t going to be an easy read. I wasn’t at all familiar with how life was for the Dutch that were living in what been Dutch-occupied Indonesia. It is veryeye-opening and will reveal what war expects of children in the maelstrom. I learned a lot through the eyes of Jeremiah Prins. This however, will forever be added to my bookshelf.
