Wie die Christen Holland gegründet haben
Töchter der Küste - Lynn Austin,Dorothee Dziewas

Zwei Frauen aus unterschiedlichen Generationen ringen hier mit ihrem Glauben an Gott. Sie wissen, was richtig und was falsch ist, aber im Leben ist es oft nicht so einfach, auch das Richtige zu tun. 

Geesje flüchtet mit ihrer Familie aus den Niederlanden nach Amerika. Dort hat sie mit vielen Schicksalsschlägen zu kämpfen, die ihren Glauben auf eine harte Probe stellen. Nicht immer trifft sie die richtigen Entscheidungen und nicht immer fragt sie nach Gottes Willen und bereut es später bitter.Viele Jahre später hört sie von der jungen Anna, die ebenfalls vor einer wichtigen Lebensentscheidung steht und ihre Hilfe braucht...

Die Geschichte wird ruhig und nachdenklich erzählt, ist dabei aber niemals langweilig. Geesje erzählt in Rückblicken von ihrem abenteuerlichen Leben, immer wieder unterbrochen durch die Geschehnisse rund um Anna in der Gegenwart. Das ist sehr spannend geschrieben, obwohl klar ist, dass diese beiden Erzählstränge irgendwann zusammen finden. Man erfährt viel über die damalige Zeit, als das Örtchen Holland in Amerika gegründet wurde und wie die kleinen freien Gemeinden in Europa sich gegen die Verfolgung der Kirche schützen mussten. Viele christliche Gedanken sind dabei wunderbar in die Story eingewoben worden. Es geht darum, sich selbst zurückzustellen und Gottes Willen zu tun. Und darum, dass Gott allein weiß, was gut für uns ist und uns in unserem Leben führen will.

Mir bleibt nur wiederum festzustellen, dass Lynn Austin einfach fantastische christliche Bücher schreibt, die einen emotional packen und auch im Glauben weiterbringen. Dieses Buch habe ich ebenfalls wieder geliebt und verschlungen.

One Sentence Review – The Point of Death by Roslyn Woods
The Point of Death: An Austin, Texas Art Mystery - Roslyn Woods
 

The Point of Death: An Austin, Texas Art Mystery (Michelle Hodge,#0)

MY ONE SENTENCE REVIEW

 

I did enjoy The Point of Death by Roslyn Woods that reads like a character study of the good and the bad people do, how they perform in dangerous situations, under pressure, as the gals draw in their small circle of close friends and put the pieces of the mystery together.

 

I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of The Point of Death by Roslyn Woods.

Travel Back To Meet Jane
The Jane Austen Project - Kathleen A. Flynn

Very enjoyable time travel, back to Jane Austin's time. A couple of future people are sent back to find the lost letters of Jane Austin. The comparisons, the reality of life then and the futuristic was awakening to the characters and me. If was easy to fall into the world created by this author. Even more fascinating was the world the travelers came from, returned to and the changes that happened from their interferences and influences. So many changes, from so little time, it made me think about all the possibilities.
I picked this up wanting more Jane Austin, as a fan it's required. Check the fan manual. LOL. As I went along with this audiobook it became more about these two people and their lives so fluid. Jane, was more of a off to the side character to me. The author did an excellent job of making feel realistic. I would love to read more works from her.

Red Hot Daddy
Red Hot Daddy - Austin Bates,Aiden Bates Red Hot Daddy - Austin Bates,Aiden Bates The story was pretty disjointed. It was confusing because it seemed like there were gaps in the sequence of events. The reunion was interesting but the in between with their relationship left me wanting. There was no sense of time between Damien and Tommy reuniting. They seemed to have had a very casual relationship from what readers could read Damien would spend pockets of time with Tommy like he was a dirty little secret. Tommy projected as a tough omega that wouldn't roll over very quickly for any ole alpha or allow himself to be mistreated. I know he had history with Damien but to see him allowing Damien do just that and treat him as a plaything made it a bit of a tough read. Between that and this I couldn't rate it any higher. The story was good and showed promise. It did pull me in and kept me reading.

An ARC was provided to me in exchange for an honest review.
