I had never heard of this author before reading this book, but I must say, it was well worth the gamble! It is written from the perspective of the three primary characters, Julia, Sam, and Emma.
Sam and Julia find themselves at rock bottom, with no job and no hope. But God’s provision led them to an old soul, with an old farm, and they all find they need each other.
This was an awesome read, and I would delightedly recommend it to you!

I have been reading the Refiner’s Fire series, focusing on the Civil War Era. Fire By Night is the second book in this series and is told from the North’s persprective. The first was told from the South’s perspective, and the last will be from a slave’s perspective.
That being said, I really enjoyed this book. The story focuses on two women during the war, one coming from a wealthy background, and the other from a poor background. The characters meet eventually, and become friends.
I love anything to do with hospitals, doctors, and nurses, so I really got this book. One of the characters runs away to become a nurse at the field hospital. The other eventually ends up becoming a nurse too.
I love the personalities Ms. Austin gives the characters. They soon become your friends, as you see their struggles and victories.
I highly recommend this book!

I have never read a book by any other author that captures my attention and my Intrigue as Lynn Austin does. She intricately weaves a story in and out and leaves you mystified by her imagination and creativity, until you find yourself falling in love with the characters.
Candle in the darkness is set during the time when slavery is at the front of everybody’s mind and heart. Battles between morality and tradition are fought in every home, dividing the nation. In one of the bloodiest wars in history, the abolitionists declare a victory for all mankind!
I love how she weaves so much information into the background. I learn as I am entertained! My favorite aspect is how faith is always present.

Has anyone every asked you what your favorite book is? Who your favorite author is? What kind of book you like to read?
I am pretty flexible. I like a good romance for sure. Especially the kind where it’s secret love until close to the end, then they figure out they love each other! Ahhh! Just like a fairy tale.
I also like a good nail biting drama. Lots of suspense and action. You know, where you flip the page faster and faster? Can’t put it down. Just one more chapter!
I guess I like fiction more than nonfiction, because it helps me get away from this crazy life I’m in. I just recently figured this out. I was a fiction gal trapped in a nonfiction body lol.
What is your perrogative?
I must first admit to you, this book review will be slightly biased! Why? Lynn Austin is without question my FAVORITE author! This sweet lady can spin words into a Web that will have you bouncing up and down while reading. You will cry, laugh, and sometimes even shout out loud. This particular book was a Symphony of words used to melt your heart.
What kind of author can have 3 different story lines going simultaneously, yet never lose your interest for 1 minute? I love the way she weaves scripture into her books, making them almost like a devotional by the time you are finished. I am undeniably more informed about things after reading a book by Lynn.
I give this wonderefill book 2 thumbs up, 4 stars, and ALL SMILES!

My most recent book adventure has been Without Warning by Joel Rosenberg. I have never read his books before, and at first I was afraid it would be too technical. After all, my husband has had his eye on it for a while, and we NEVER read the same books. That being said, this was the exception. I read all 100 chapters in about 4 days, and found it riviting! It was easy enough to follow, with plenty of details to put you right in the middle of things.
This was a fictional book about ISIS and a man’s endeavors, both personally and professionally, to right the wrongs from his life.
I definitely loved it! I give this book 2 thumbs up, 4 stars, and ALL SMILES!
