All That Glitters

by Gilbert Morris Gilbert Morris is a well known Christian author who usually sets his novels in historic time periods.  I’ver read several of his novels, and have enjoyed each one.  This one was a little different.  This one was a modern day time line, constructed around a movie producer and his film crew. When […]

Edge of Honor

by Gilbert Morris Let me start off by saying that this book was intense. It really was. It didn’t start out that way, but it certainly didn’t take very long to get there. We start off by meeting out main character, Quentin Laribee, a med-student with a fine gift for surgery. He has the most […]

The Stars For A Light

by Lynn Morris and Gilbert Morris This is the first in a series of 10 books by this father-daughter duo. At first I wasn’t sure if I would enjoy the premise of the books or not. We first meet Cheney Duvall, a young woman who is newly graduated from medical school in the 1860’s. Set […]

Coming Home

by David Lewis I’ve decided that I need to start a label for Christian books. It seems that about half of what I read these days is Christian fiction, and while that may not be for everyone, I thought that maybe for some, that would be what they would prefer. So over the next few […]

But all three books could have easily been published as one story, with maybe a little more detail. In fact, that’s […]

The Proposal and The Rescue

by Lori Wick These are Christian romance novels. Now I have to admit that I was bit sceptical at first. I mean, to me, a romance novel is full of juicy love scenes. And Christian fiction is not. So how could the two really successfully merge without seeming fake and contrived. Ah but they can. […]

The Storekeeper’s Daughter

by Wanda Brunstetter Well, I simply had to go back and read the first book by Wanda Brunstetter. And I will say this, read them in order. I knew what was going to happen in this one, and I found myself anticipating it, and it almost made it difficult to read. I mean, I got […]

Wanda Brunstetter is a Christian author who has spent a lot of time among the Amish and has managed to capture the essence of […]

The Secret Life of Becky Miller

I’m not entirely sure what led me to read this book. I saw it reviewed on a blog, and I just HAD to read it. A few clicks on Amazon, and it was on my way. I was not disappointed. The Secret Life of Becky Miller is a fictional story about Super-Mom. Becky Miller is […]
