McGee is a wonderful writer…..I love to read stories from the civil war era…..two story antebellum homes with the lovely gardens and towering oaks. Ladies with the flowing dresses with hoops and the rugged handsome heroes. Her Place in Time has all this and SO MUCH MORE……A dying modern  young lady is transported back in time to the civil war era. You will find yourself rapidly turning the pages, eager to read all the happenings of this most interesting novel.  Of course this is fiction but McGee has done a delightful interweaving of the past and the present day. You will certainly enjoy reading this Time Travel novel……… McGee entrusted me to read and review her book and I am most happy to leave a positive review.

Together Forever (Orphan Train Book #2)  by Jody Hedlund

Jody Hedlund is an author who keeps you turning the pages. This is the second book about the orphan train which was in the mid 1800’s. The Children Aid Society would gather up the homeless street urchins and the orphans in the orphanage and put them on the orphan train in the hopes that they would be adopted at the different towns they would stop at. Some would be adopted by childless couples but often it would be people that would take them because they needed extra help in the home or fields. Hedlund brings the children to life and also the adults who would oversee them on their train ride. There is humor, excitement, sadness and even danger on the westward Orphan Train. Oh yes, there is even romance…….I received a copy from NetGalley and this is my honest review,

The Captured Bride: Daughters of the Mayflower by Michelle Griep

Michelle Griep is a great writer and this book is no exception, I loved it. Book 3 in the brides of the Mayflower series is a great historical novel, well written and very interesting. If you like stories of forts, wars, Indians and the wild untamed land, then you too will loved this one………A half breed woman, more Indian than white because she was raised by the Mohawk tribe and a condemned traitor paired together as scouts through hostile territory, on a dangerous mission. This book will keep you turning pages. Suspense, danger and romance, a potent combination, I was captivated right from the start, there wasn’t a dull moment, . ……My thanks to Barbour Publishing for a complimentary copy of this book.

Shadows of Hope  by Georgiana Daniels

This is my first book by this author and I found it very interesting. Daniels is an excellent writer. Colin and Marissa are having a tough time, being they want a child so badly that their marriage has become stressed to the limit.

When we have faith to believe that “God’s got this” it may not be what we think it will be at all. Can this marriage be saved?  Can there be complete forgiveness for all the parties concerned?………I received a complimentary copy from Barbour and was under no obligation to leave a review.

John David’s Calling (The Revivalist Book 1)  by Caryl McAdoo

This is the beginning of a new series by McAdoo, but some characters from her other books are brought in. It is helpful if you read the previous books, but this one can stand alone. This book centers on David who is the son of unwed parents raised by his staunch sedate unbending grandfather, who is his mother’s father. He is also the grandson of a holy roller preacher on his dad’s side. When he becomes eighteen he takes on his father’s name which is Nightingale. John David feels a calling to the spirit led ministry style of his father who wasn’t in his life much as a child. He wants to obey God at any cost, but does not want to disappoint his grandfather, who is against the holiness church.  Then there is his teenage sweetheart, Hannah, who he has loved for years and intends to marry when she finishes school. She wants to marry now and tries to temp him every way she can so they will have to marry.  Then there is temptation of being easy to make money and make friends. Can this young man withstand the various pulls to lure him away from his calling……..McAdoo always writes down to earth books with believable characters to give God glory and this one definitely does. I AM HAPPY TO LEAVE A POSITIVE REVIEW.

A Refuge Assured by Jocelyn Green

A Refuge Assured  by Jocelyn Green

This is my first book to read by this author and I can say I hope it won’t be my last. Green is an excellent writer and I certainly enjoyed this historical inspirational fiction. It was educational  to read of the French revolution and what brought the french to America and also the revolutionary war here in America. The main female character, Vivieene  Rivard  begins her life in France where she is a lace maker for the queen and other aristocrats.  Left all alone and in danger of loosing her life, she flees to America.  There she learns new skills to support herself, as no one is buying lace.  Without wanting to, she becomes involved in things of the revolution that she has no desire to. All the ins and out makes an interesting read,  This is a great book about a little know period in American history. There are also some little known details and perspective on the French Revolution.
I received a copy from the Netgalley and the publisher. No review, positive or otherwise, was required—all opinions are my own.

Blind Betrayal (Defenders of Justice Book #3)  by Nancy Mehl

Mehl has another winner in book three in the Defenders Of Justice series. This is a stand alone book, you do not have to have read the first two books in the series. Blind Betrayal involves witness protection. The FBI and U.S. Marshals come together as they are transferring a journalist to a safe house. If you like lots and lots of action and nail biting suspense with a bit of romance then this is the book for you. Bombs exploding, kidnapping, and murder. Road rage to kill, gunfights and those who are not what they seem, all make for a very interesting read……….I received a copy of this book from netgalley and Bethany House Publishing in exchange for my honest review. All opinions expressed are my own. I was not required to write a positive review.

Out of the Ashes (The Heart of Alaska Book #2)  Tracie Peterson and Kimberly Woodhouse

This is book two in the Heart of Alaska Series. We find some of the same characters as in the first book and new names and faces are added. Action centers around the Curry Hotel, nestled at the foot of Mt. McKinley. The authors are excellent writers and great in their description of the Alaskan wilderness in the early nineteen hundreds. They write of the beautiful countryside, the people of Curry, the visitors from France, the sickness and the romance. The birth of babies and the healing touch as one comes to trust the Savior and learns to forgive their self and others. I was given a copy from the publisher and my review is in my own words.

Crossed Off (A Holly Novel Book 3) by C.C. Warrens

Crossed Off (A Holly Novel Book 3) by C.C. Warrens

This is book three in the Holly series and I most certainly suggest that you read one and two before this one so you will know about Holly and the other main characters and what brought them to where Crossed Off begins….. This was a tough book to read, because you find yourself right there in the midst of everything that is going on. C.C.Warrens is a master of description and can certainly reach your very soul with her words. Abuse, molestation  and the torture of children is very prevalent in our society today.  You read about it everyday. This leaves lasting scars on the emotions of these children that stay with them through out their life. Through all of Holly’s story, we can see the hand of God working. Holly with all her phobias and insecurities touched many lives as she  clung steadfastly to her belief that God still cared for her. You cannot put this one down, for you are so caught up in the happenings.  Now we await Marx’s story.
