Review: Song of Silence by Cynthia Ruchti

Review: Song of Silence by Cynthia Ruchti

Posted April 5, 2016 / 3 Comments

One of the things I enjoy so much about Cynthia Ruchti’s books is her writing voice. It’s graciously down to earth with a dry wit that has me grinning even through tears, laughing even around the lump in my throat, and always always unable to put down the story until I’ve savored every word.

Review (and a Giveaway!): More Than A Promise by Ruth Logan Herne

Posted March 31, 2016 / 27 Comments

Delightful, warm, and charming, More Than a Promise is more than a love story. Or rather, it’s more than a story about two people falling in love. It’s a story of hope and faith, of humor and family, of blending lives, of second chances, and most of all it’s a story that points to the Author of all love stories and how He’s head over heels for us.
