Book Review: A Cousins Promise (Read in 2011)
A Cousin's Promise - Wanda E. Brunstetter

A Cousin Promise is done well. I know I read this way before starting my book blog. I really did enjoy this. This book is about Loraine and Wayne. Will Loraine keep her promise? Though Wayne seem to have had accident and was left crippled.

Will Wayne see is way and hold on to his happiness? I really can not remember much it been that long ago. If I ever do re-read this book again I truly hope it as good as the first I read it. I do not see why it would not be.

I remember some of it story and plot. I know that it was written well. I did enjoy the story none the less. Will Wayne be able to get over his struggles and look to god and faith. Will Loraine be able to get over her rejection with gods help? What will happen once Loraine old boyfriends returns? Who will Loraine choose to love and marry?

Faith comes home after living in the English world. She has her daughter in tow with her. What happen to Faith Stutzman Andrews and her daughter. Faith is widowed but what happen to her husband and what makes her to come home.

Noah is enjoying with doing things in the kitchen rather then work in the fields. Noah seem to like help other out and make them feel better. Will Noah be able to help Faith? Their seem to be rules that Faith must follow when she returns back to her parents home.

Will Faith decide to stay or will she leave once again. Noah seem like he likes Faith and her daughter. The author does well with this story. It show that it okay to return back home. Will Faith and Noah find love with each other? It seem that Wanda does this. I remember bit and parts about this story when I read it about seven years ago. I would love to reread it in audio book if I ever get the chance.

This book is worth reading. If you are a fan of christian fiction or even Amish fiction. Wanda is a really good storyteller and this story is no different.

[REVIEW] Code Name Verity by Elizabeth E. Wein
Code Name Verity - Elizabeth Wein

“It's like being in love, discovering your best friend.”

I cried. I'm still crying. This book is so well written but it is heartbreaking. Don't know how or when I will recover.

[REVIEW] The Night Mark by Tiffany Reisz
The Night Mark - Tiffany Reisz

"Once someone loves you that much, loves you more than you deserve, you can't go back to being loved the normal way."


cw: depression, suicidal ideation


I have a hard time reading outside of my favorite genres, and I was afraid of this book because I am not big on time travel books; however, I do have the challenge to finish and I did enjoy this one. It's terribly romantic and also depressing. The first part is hard to get through if you are depressed. Faye has lost the love of her life, and she finds little reason to go on living. Perhaps it's twisted that I related to her pain and her depression. Thankfully I haven't lost any great loves, but sometimes getting out of bed and functioning like a human is incredibly difficult.

 

I will say Reisz writes really well. I got hooked on her prose, her dialogue is superb, her sex scene was well written, and she really makes you fall in love with her characters, even with the ones that are dead.

 

Yes, the book does suffer from a type of instalove, but given the circumstances, it wasn't too strange though it did make the story feel rushed to me and... messy. Faye travels to the past and meets Carrick, who looks a lot like her dearly departed husband Will, and she falls for him instantly. Thing is Faye is not in her body but in the body of Faith Morgan whom Carrick pines for since he met her. These are two characters that loved other people that looked like them and then fell in love with each other. See? It's super messy.

 

It's like I loved the story but I also feel like Faye didn't finish grieving so much as find a Will-shaped bandaid and that's why I couldn't really give this a higher rating.

[REVIEW] One Night in December by Josie Silver
One Day in December - Josie Silver

This book was really cute. I teared up a few times reading this, it was surprisingly overwhelming. Laurie and Jack are lovely, flawed characters, and you root for them and wonder how the hell they are going to end up together because the author throws everything but the kitchen sink at them. It is a slow burn which I am not used to reading, but I enjoyed it

except for the damn ending. Why oh why must these novels end so ABRUPTLY? I've read three books in a row that end so suddenly; I found myself doing a double take. Give me an extra chapter where the couple is happy and together PLEASE! I need that balm after suffering for so many pages.
