Prague Counterpoint – Bodie Thoene

How could the world let an empire rise that would try and exterminate an entire nationality?  Then again, how could a leader who is so bent on making Aryans the most important race in the world, encourage the murder of his own people?  These two questions are extensively explored in Prague Counterpoint, the second installment…

Mount Rainer – Washington

In 2015, I sat by the window on a flight leaving Seattle, Washington.  Below, Mount Rainer stood in all her snow-capped splendor as I snapped multiple photos on my iPhone.  Seeing it from the sky was magnificent and I never thought anything would top that experience…until I saw the mountain from the ground. “Admission to…

A Heart Most Certain – Melissa Jagears

I was scrolling through Facebook one day when I saw an author’s post – she was giving away a few copies of her new book to a random number of folks who commented on her post – and as any avid reader would do, I commented.  A little while later, I was tagged in a…

Vienna Prelude – Bodie Thoene

As I closed the cover to Vienna Prelude, I knew I had been introduced to a cast of characters who wouldn’t soon be forgotten.  Some were good.  Some were evil.  Nevertheless, each have made an impression on me that will easily come to mind whenever the topic of WWII and Hitler’s reign of terror come…

Every Day in His Presence – Dr. Charles Stanley

I have this tradition.  Every year, I use a different devotional for my morning quiet time.  In 2016, I read Every Day in His Presence by Dr. Charles Stanley, senior pastor of First Baptist Church Atlanta and one of my favorite preacher/authors.  After spending a year with this beautiful volume, I’ll give a brief outline…

It’s Good To Be Queen – Liz Curtis Higgs

Scotland.  I had always associated Liz Curtis Higgs with her Historical Fiction Series set in the Highlands and Lowlands of Scotland.  Every time I see this author’s name, my mind imagines purple heather hills, castles and a fictional storyline that often parallels a Biblical story.  Some of the best Biblical Fiction books I’ve ever read,…

Ocean Shores – Washington

It may have been the middle of August, but I would have been lost without my Columbia fleece jacket as I walked the beach at Ocean Shores in Washington.  The air near the coast carried a good chill and the water coming in from the Pacific was freezing…that is, the few times I allowed it…

Prelude for a Lord – Camille Elliot

Prelude for a Lord was my first experience with this author and all I can say is, “Wow, I’m impressed!”  This book included everything I enjoy about Historical Fiction plus an exciting plot that twists and turns; as hard as I tried to figure out who was the bad guy before the end, I couldn’t. …
