Bays tackles – with grit and grace – some of the deepest and darkest questions that touch every soul at some point in life. If you personally haven’t thought them (because we don’t dare say them out loud), someone close to you has… is… will.

Top Ten Tuesday: Could I Have Your Attention, Please?

Posted March 22, 2016 / 73 Comments

Today on Top Ten Tuesday, the team at The Broke and the Bookish thought we should talk about those books that we don’t profile as often. Because, let’s face it – as book bloggers we do have a collection of books and authors that seem to crop up in almost every post. Especially the linkups and memes. So this Tuesday, we dedicate our blogs to those books we do really love so very much… but don’t talk about nearly enough.

Review: A Refuge at Highland Hall by Carrie Turansky

Review: A Refuge at Highland Hall by Carrie Turansky

Posted March 18, 2016 / 2 Comments

World War 1 Flying Aces and German Zeppelins zoom across the pages of A Refuge at Highland Hall, the challenges of war meticulously researched and creatively conveyed. The beginnings of new love spark for two couples in this story, tempered by the separation of war – be it by deployment or internment – but allowing the power of the written word to fan the heart’s spark into a steady and enduring flame is truly the stuff of great romance! My favorite of the Edwardian Brides series, A Refuge at Highland Hall is best appreciated if read in context (the characters!!) though it can also be read as a standalone.

Review: Moonlight Over Paris by Jennifer Robson

Posted March 16, 2016 / 3 Comments

Moonlight Over Paris is vibrant in setting and history. 1920s Paris comes alive under Jennifer Robson’s pen! The bond between an unlikely group of friends kept me invested in the story even when I found the main character herself difficult to relate to.

Welcome, one and all, to another edition of Top Ten Tuesday – hosted as always by The Broke and the Bookish. This week we’re all talking about our Spring TBR lists…. well…. we’re supposed to be talking about our Spring TBR lists.

But mine quickly became the size of a small novel.

So, I made an executive decision and limited myself to just March.

Review (and a Giveaway!): Like a Love Song by Camille Eide

Review (and a Giveaway!): Like a Love Song by Camille Eide

Posted March 12, 2016 / 6 Comments

Like a Love Song went straight for my heart. The characters, their histories, their futures, the setting, the plot. All of it spoke to me on a level that went beyond the romance and aimed steadfastly toward Jesus. Joe and Sue’s love story was, of course, a highlight of the book for me – it was cute, sweet, and even breath-stealing on occasion. But in all honesty, it paled in comparison to this truth that Camille Eide framed so gorgeously: God’s love never fails.

Dawn Crandall masterfully crafts a story rich in vibrant setting, vivid characters, and sharp dialogue. Her scenes come alive, transplanting readers into Gilded Age New England and keeping them absorbed from the first word until the last. The characters she creates feel real and honest, and boy howdy can she write a kissing scene!
