A Reluctant Bride by Kathleen Fuller

A Reluctant Bride by Kathleen Fuller made me feel a great many different emotions. Anger, disgust, sadness, helplessness, hope, courage…a plethora of stormy feelings that more than once had me hissing in frustration while reading. It’s a complicated story, emotionally, but I definitely recommend it. What makes the story so powerful, for me, is the […]

An Uncertain Choice by Jody Hedlund is a fun and rather flirty tale of a young noblewoman faced with a strange and daunting decision on the verge of becoming an adult. Become a nun? Marry a virtual stranger – and if so, which one? Who can she trust? Lots of questions for a sheltered seventeen […]

A Respectable Actress by Dorothy Love

A Respectable Actress by Dorothy Love was an excellent story, that I enjoyed so much I finished it in a day. The main characters, India and Philip, are believable, reacting to the distress of their situations with a degree of humanity not always present in fiction (especially romantic fiction). The story is interesting, and the mystery […]

The main characters are well developed and intriguing, and while I have not read Eakes’ other books that actually detail the midwife’s family history, I love that Ashley […]

Hallowed Halls by Hannah Alexander

This is the first book I’ve read by this author, and Hannah Alexander really knocks it out of the park in Hallowed Halls. The characters are interesting and compelling (whether you like them or not), and the interpersonal problems are realistic and not overblown. I enjoyed Alexander’s knowledge of medical concerns, and how she wove […]

Movie Monday #4 – Minions Movie

*This is a sponsored post; all opinions are my own.* We’ve been Minions fans since the little guys first hit the silver screen in Despicable Me. They’re hilarious! And they somehow became even more hilarious in the sequel. So when we heard about the new Minions movie, we were thrilled! We were even more thrilled when General Mills asked if […]

Imaginary Things by Andrea Lochen
