Shelley Shepard Gray consistently delivers skillfully-written stories of hope and grace, and A Son’s Vow is no exception.
Today, I am honored to have Vannetta Chapman stop by Reading Is My SuperPower to share the story behind the story of her latest book, Joshua’s Mission.
This week’s edition of “Top Ten Tuesday” (hosted as always by The Broke and the Bookish) is brought to you by those books I meant to read in 2015 but …umm… didn’t.
I’m looking at you, 2016.
The Year of the TBR pile.
As 2015 wound to a close this week, I have been talking about the books I’m most anticipating for the first half of 2016.
Today I’m going to talk about the Amish Fiction I’m most looking forward to from January-June 2016!
It’s that time of year when everyone is making lists and checking them twice. Some are finding out who has been naughty and who has been nice. Some are making sure those in their circles of gifting know what they want for Christmas.
Here at Reading Is My SuperPower, I’m making lists too! Every day this week will feature the best books I read in 2015 from different genres.
One of the problems that occurs when you maintain an active book blog is that, thanks to review schedules and deadlines, you don’t always have time to read the books you normally would have read by now. As such, I found myself woefully behind when it came to Patricia Davids’ books and made some time this past week to play catch-up. Rather than inundate y’all with numerous posts, I decided to just do mini-reviews of each one at once.
While this is the 6th book in the Matchmakers of Huckleberry Hill series by Jennifer Beckstrand, it can easily be read as a stand alone. But I can just about guarantee you will want to go back and read the other books in the series as soon as you’ve finished Huckleberry Hearts because you will fall in love with Anna and Felty and Cassie and Zach and well, MOST of Cassie’s extended family 😉 Written with much talent and warmth, Huckleberry Hearts is a new favorite and I highly recommend it to fans (and non-fans) of Amish fiction, Jen Turano, and Cynthia Ruchti.
