Sweet read, love conquers the past
First Street Church Romances: Love's Cure (Kindle Worlds Novella) (Sweet Grove Beginnings Book 4) - Emily Murdoch

A quick sweet story that brings two wounded souls together. Mariana's blindness has made her angry for most of her life. Gerald's one mistake follows him to Sweet Grove. Her need for independence from her family is encouraged by Gerald. Feelings grow fast with the help of a little faith. I enjoyed the characters and this small town as it grows.

I received a copy of this story as a gift, and this is my unsolicited review.

The Death Cure
The Death Cure - James Dashner The conclusion to the Maze Runner series may rank as the best for me. I enjoyed seeing the deception of WICKED and others to Thomas and his crew. You never knew what happened when and who to trust. Even though he did not opt for the memory surgery, or maybe that was not even real--maybe they just planned the killzone autopsy all along--, it would have been interesting to see him get his memories back. I guess I will just need to read the sequel, The Kill Order. Like many of the dystopian novel series, they spent a lot of time just driving/flying from point to point, but I liked how the story developed.

Insightful approach to historical suffrage movement
The Cure for Dreaming - Cat Winters

Olivia's dancing around the edges of the suffrage movement in 1890s Portland, OR. She's strong-minded but quiet, dreaming of a future as a teacher or writer, but trapped under her domineering father's thumb. When she's hypnotized on stage the night of her birthday, she craves the relaxing peace of it. But when her father hires the hypnotist for a private session to remove her rebellious thoughts and ability to protest, she finds the drive to commit to a position and fight back against the patriarchy.

 

This was a brilliantly-told piece of YA historical fiction dealing with the early days of women's suffrage in the United States. The paranormal romance angle was really innovative, giving a fun, dramatic angle to gender relations, politics and the silencing of women. Flawless writing and storytelling, with clear trouble taken to include appropriate historical detail. I appreciated the effort to give the antagonists clear, believable and appropriate motivation as well. Even the villains have reasons for thinking and acting the way they do. Excellent effort and highly entertaining read.
