Book Tour: The Accidental Guardian
The Accidental Guardian - Mary Connealy

Are you a person would would like to see what an wagon trail is like. Learn about it some what. Well you get glimpses of it though the accidental guardian. You can see what it like to be a survivor of a wagon train.

 

We find out about Tracy Riley and some of his past. He has to protect not only woman but also two children. They are survivors of the wagon train. We seem to be following more of Deb's story rather then her little sister Gwen and the children. Though maybe in the second book we learn more about the children and Gwen story.

 

Deb is adventurous and Trace and seem interested in Tracy from  the beginning. Trace put Deb in his bed that first night. Is there romance between them or not?

The Walk
The Walk - Richard Paul Evans

This was such a sad, sad story. I cannot imagine going though those things and well, wanting to get through it. Alan had a beautiful wife, his own ad company, a nice home and suddenly it was all gone. He decided to go on a walk, a long walk, across the whole continent. He set his sites to a place over 3,000 miles away. As he walked he did a lot of thinking and met some people who gave him more to think about. He doesn't finish his walk by the end of the book because something happened that required him to take a break. The book seems to end abruptly but it is the first in a series. It definitely gives a person plenty flood for thought. I'm glad I finally read it.

The Preacher's Wife
The Preacher's Bride - Jody Hedlund

This book was so much better than I expected it to be. I looked at the cover and the title and thought it would be a silly romance novel. As it turned out, it was actually a well written story based on John Bunyan who wrote The Pilgrim's Progress but also focusing on Elisabeth, his second wife who support him. I was surprised to find out that many of the details and characters were based on fact and transcripts. This book was an amazing view into the past world of the Puritans and their persecution.

We Were Made to Be Courageous
No Less Days - Amanda Stevens

Not having much experience with the speculative fiction genre, and purposely going into this book without reading more than the first sentence of the description, “No Less Days” proved to be a pleasant surprise. This was more or less my first foray into the genre, and I must admit that I was skeptical about how the Christian aspect would play out, but Amanda Stevens truly did a masterful job of interlacing the two. The plot is unique and plausible enough to be intriguing without having to completely suspend belief, and the characters are relatable in their flaws and struggles. Moreover, the subject matter is particularly prescient for contemporary culture.   

Immortality. It seems that society increasingly seeks this elusive state of being, but what might the consequences be? What boon would earthly immortality offer? Mark 8:36 asks, “For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul?” “No Less Days” confronts this issue head-on. The central characters are unable to die because of a doctor’s propitious but ultimately naive intervention in each of their lives a century and a half prior. David Galloway unwittingly meets them, and while they share the same unnerving quality of longevity, it soon becomes apparent that altruism is not likewise shared among them. David’s faith is tested as he struggles to do the right thing in what appears to be a catch-22 situation while also navigating a potential romantic relationship with a mortal woman. At the end of the day, what this novel epitomizes is that the focus should be on the legacy that we leave behind.

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

Praise in the Storm
My Heart Belongs in Glenwood Springs, Colorado: Millie's Resolve - Rebecca Jepson

Glenwood Springs, Colorado, 1888. The peaceful surroundings belie the burgeoning turmoil that enters Millie Cooper’s life once again. As a poor fisherman’s daughter from Nantucket, she has ventured west and established herself as a nurse, working under a kindly doctor. The heartbreak of her past seemingly behind her, she has settled into the routine of her new life. However, when she reluctantly agrees to accept a position as personal attendant to a condescending, asthmatic woman, her past returns with a vengeance. Forced to confront what she had hoped was behind her—and the fact of her lingering hurt—she strives to find peace in the midst of life’s storms.

From the start, “My Heart Belongs in Glenwood Springs” captured and held my interest. Millie makes a dynamic character, with an independence that is unique for the time period and that serves as both a blessing and a hindrance given the constraints of nineteenth-century society. There are many twists and turns in the plot as characters emerge and interact with one another, and as a result, the novel’s conclusion is not clear-cut, with the suspense lasting until the end. This is difficult to accomplish in works of this nature, with a strong thread of romance and redemption and what can easily become a cookie-cutter narrative. As Millie’s story illustrates, healing sometimes comes long after the initial hurt, but God’s grace and mercy can always be found in all of life’s circumstances, guiding us toward His good purposes.
