The Christmas Prayer - Wanda E. Brunstetter

Looking for a good Christmas story. Wanda give you one. I really liked it. They wonder what it like to be on trail to west to California. It about Three wagon trains that meet up and are all set to travel to get to California.

There a young girl that is to marry a fellow traveler? Will she do so to help her mother or will her heart win out? For there are two others that are interested in Cynthia. There are quite adventure for all of them.

They seem to get stuck in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Will they survive or will they not. Will Christmas bring them together or will is pull them a part. Will Cynthia get her Christmas payer be answered?

Wanda does a wonderful job with showing us the hardships of Oregon trails and natures? She show us what it like on the trails though a young woman and always the friendship that are built.

The Prayer of the Night Shepherd by Phil Rickman
The Prayer of the Night Shepherd - Phil Rickman

Series: Merrily Watkins #6

 

This installment of the series has links to Arthur Conan Doyle and his Hound of the Baskervilles. Merrily has more deliverance stuff, of course, and there's more background character development with her relationship with Lol. There is a potential haunting and although a skeptic would still find a lot to deny, I think it counts towards the 2018 Halloween Bingo Ghost Stories square.

 

I'm really terrible at writing about these books.

Over the River and Through the Woods
The Christmas Prayer - Wanda E. Brunstetter

Wanda Brunstetter’s “The Christmas Prayer” leaves me with mixed feelings. A brief novella, it is great for a one-to-two hour diversion, and the writing is very easy to understand. However, these qualities are also part of my criticism. The storyline seems like it would have been better suited to a full-length novel, as the plot comes across as rushed, jumping over weeks and even months at a time. The same is true of the characterization. As the reader, I did not feel any strong connection with any of the characters, and they were not developed to any real extent. Part of the narrative comes from Cynthia Cooper’s journal, which in my opinion detracted from the flow of the story. This read more like a teen or young adult novella, and everything came together too neatly and too quickly to be believable. It is reminiscent of a Hallmark Channel movie. Nevertheless, the cover is absolutely beautiful, with an embossed gold border on both the front and back, and anyone looking for a fast, feel-good tale will enjoy this one.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing and was under no obligation to post a review.

Clash of the titans! LOL
Half a Prayer - Rick Gualtieri

 

Sorta.

 

The group of misfits go up against shape shifting rock monsters that can transform your dead body into a new shape shifting rock monster.

 

Deep in the sewers of Las Vegas.

 

Then on to defending themselves against the egomaniac that is the leader of the vampires, namely Alexander the Great.

 

As the rock monsters swarm the proceedings in a bid for supremacy, Genghis Kahns granddaughter (great granddaughter?) shows up to fight beside her beloved Bill because she's insistent that he can't die until her marries her.

 

We still don't know where Dave took off to.

 

These are really throwing off my tentatively scheduled reads, so, as Bill would say, fuck it!  LOL

Do’s:

4.Height at which it must be installed:
The wooden temple for the home should be placed at a particular height from the ground; it should be high enough so that when the idol of god or goddess is set, then the base of the idols should be at the level of one's chest.

Don’ts
1.Photographs of the deceased ancestors should not be placed near the idol of gods and goddesses. It is considered inauspicious.
