"My Cup Runneth Over" by Janeva Gardel

 

My Thoughts......

 

What a beautiful novel that I had the privilege of reading!  This was truly a wonderful amazing read of Skylar Mathis and Zyon Davis that seemed from the first time they meet that they were made for each other.  I enjoyed how this author was able to bring in the christian faith effect of the read and I especially loved that title: "My Cup Runneth Over" bringing out so many important messages for all to be able to absorb. The reader is only left with knowing that 'true love really does exit and of God's love.'  The characters were all very well developed and definitely bringing the reader  a believable as well as a relatable read that made one  could feel that they knew these people as there was an 'importance of prayer, scripture, forgiveness, restoration, being able to move on for a healthy relationship and finally a HEA.' I will be looking forward to the next story that will deal with Skylar's best friend  Zavia and Zyon's brother Xavier in 'Surely Goodness and Mercy Shall Follow Me.'

The Imam's Daughter by Hannah Shah
The Imam's Daughter - Hannah Shah

This one was heart-breaking, but I couldn't stop reading it! Kudos to the author for speaking out, especially on the subject matter and of a culture that most of us don't understand.

 

Synopsis: She lived the life of a devout Muslim in a family of Pakistani Muslims in England, but behind the front door, she was a caged butterfly. For many years, her father abused her in the cellar of their home. At sixteen, she discovered a plan to send her to Pakistan for an arranged marriage, and she gathered the courage to run away. Relentlessly hunted by her angry father and brothers, who were intent on executing an honor killing, she moved from house to house in perpetual fear to escape them. Over time, she converted to Christianity and was able to live and marry as she wished. Hannah found the courage to live her live free from shame, free from religious intolerance, and free from the abuse that haunted her childhood. This is a remarkable true story of how a young girl escaped a life of torture...a story you won't forget!

Bread of Angels by Tessa Afshar

This was my first book by Tessa Afshar, but it definitely won’t be my last. “Bread of Angels” is a stunning work of Christian biblical fiction, providing a rich backstory for Lydia, a seller of purple cloth who is mentioned in Acts 16. She is remarkable not only for her conversion to Christianity and for her hospitality, but also for being an unmarried yet successful businesswoman. At the tale’s opening she is a teenage girl working with her father to create the purple dye that he has perfected, but storm clouds soon appear on the horizon, and Lydia’s life is forever altered.

Although she perseveres, fear continually dogs Lydia throughout her life, along with a sense of guilt and shame at the secrets she keeps. Her story is one of a gentle, industrious life, and yet her heart cannot find true peace. One day, however, she meets some visitors to Philippi, and as her story coalesces with those of the apostles, she realizes—in more ways than one—what she has been missing.

“Bread of Angels” quickly drew me into Lydia’s story, and her sometimes harrowing experiences lent a touch of suspense to the narrative that made this book a difficult one to put down. Each chapter begins with an epigraph, a quotation from Scripture, which serves as a chapter title of sorts and which correlates to the action in the novel while also further grounding the work theologically. I would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in women of the Bible and in Christian fiction in general.

"Relentless Heart" by Tyora Moody

 

My Thoughts....

 

Another good read where we see the Assistant District Attorney Asia Reed is still at her job 'fighting a losing battle in the faith department.'  Now why is that...not being married at almost forty and also with no little ones. Has Asia's life career taken over her life?  Will she find that someone that is just for her.  Well, as her life goes on for some reason Asia receives a phone call from a former boyfriend who wanted to share something with her.  Are things looking up for her?  Well, not so fast for in this read Asia will have another case soon before her where she will have to come out front and center to get all the details out to bring the one guilty to justice.  Who is this new detective that is now working with Asia?  How will these two work together and will they be able  to bring this killer to justice? With all of Asia's brassiness  "Will Asia's persistence put her in the path of a killer?"  To get all of these answers and so much more answered  you will have to pick up this good Christian, mystery-thriller with suspense to see how well this author brings this well written story told so well to the readers.

 

Thank you to the author for a early read and my providing my honest opinion of the novel "Relentless Heart."

Reading progress update: I've read 56%.
To Wager Her Heart (A Belle Meade Plantation Novel) - Tamera Alexander

Loving it! There are multiple storylines with each character that keeps it interesting. There's the town itself and its people, the railroad, a horrible accident and freed blacks trying to educate at Fisk University.
