Review of Rome Sweet Home by Scott Hahn
Rome Sweet Home: Our Journey to Catholicism - Scott Hahn,Kimberly Hahn,Peter Kreeft

This is a very difficult book to rate. I appreciated the authors' deep faith and ability to share their religious experiences through this book. I had a hard time with how simple their conversion from being Protestantism to Catholicism seems to be. The authors both had graduate degrees (multiple) in theology but then presented their "awakening" to the true Catholic faith as being as simple as reading a book or looking at a Scriptural passage a new way. It was written in a way that was almost hard to believe that it could be so simple. I understand that this wasn't meant to be a book of theology, but I would have appreciated a more in-depth analysis of how their conversions took place over time rather than the seemingly instant intellectual conversions as they happened.

I realize I am probably being far too critical, but that was how this read struck me. I do have a sincere appreciation for the story told here.

Maisie dragged to Germany
Journey to Munich: A Maisie Dobbs Novel - Jacqueline Winspear

It's 1938 and Maisie is back in London, trying to see what she's going to do with her life now. She's still somewhat distraut by the death of her husband and child and is trying to see what her future has in store for her when the Foreign Service interrupts her with a mission. An important inventor and businessman has been detained in Dachau Prison and the German government will only release them to a family member, but his only relative, a daughter is seriously ill in hospital. Fortunately Maisie looks a lot like her. At the same time, her husband's ex-partner wants her to search for his daughter, the person Maisie blames for his death, who is also in Munich.

She's about to embark on a tour of the beginnings of Nazism and there's a lot of commentary about it.

Interesting read, Maisie is becoming almost a James Bond type of character.

The Long Journey Home (Johnson Family Legacy Book 3) by James Robinson Jr
The Long Journey Home - James Robinson Jr.

The Long Journey Home is book three in the Johnson Family Legacy series, and boy does this family certainly have lot of drama going on in their lives!

 

I must confess though this can be stand alone I really do feel it would have been better having read books one and two beforehand (I have them on my Kindle now but just didn’t have time to read them before this review was due) The story flows well with enough of a backstory thrown in at the relevant times but there seems to have been a lot happened to get the family to this point.

 

This book picks up after events that happened at the airport – and start of with Samuel and Tabitha rekindling their love in the hallway of a hotel whilst trying to get into their room… very sexy start but one that I wasn’t expecting one bit! There seems to have been a lot gone down at the airport and in the previous books and from what I can summize Samuel’s father picked his bags up and left his mother literary in the airport to go an live with his secret lover whom he has a child with! It seems not all was well with Samuel and his wife Tabitha either, but they seem intent on fixing the wrongs.

 

This book has so much family drama, and covers topics of suicide, alcoholism and infidelity – seriously I don’t know how one family can have so much going on in their lives but you are sucked right into their problems and as you sit by and watch them sort through it all and hopefully come out the other side you can help but be thankful you life isn’t as messed up (or is it….?)

 

I would recommend reading the first two books to get the back story on what lead everyone to this point.

Book Review : Escape Journey vol 1
Escape Journey vol 1 - Tanaka Ogeretsu

oct 1-1

It’s Naoto’s first day of college, and the last person he expected to see was his high school ex Taichi, whom he’d dumped after a huge argument. Even though years have passed, Naoto finds he’s still steamed over some of the harsh words that were exchanged, but he also recognizes how much Taichi has matured since then and can’t help getting pulled back in. Will the discovery of his friend’s crush on Taichi fray the fragile threads of this mending relationship?


Book Review : I do enjoy Boys love manga but this I didn't really like I had some issues one there was a defiant non consent sex scene it made me uncomfortable and the relationship isn't the healthiest there were some cute scenes not sure if i'm going to continue .
