review SPOILER ALERT! 2017-06-19 00:21
A Moonbow Night
A Moonbow Night - Laura Frantz

My review contains spoilers and they're mostly my thoughts...

First of all, let me start by saying I didn’t know what a moonbow was until I read this story and went to check it out online. I never saw a moonbow but now I seriously want to! There were many such references in A Moonbow Night by Laura Frantz which I absolutely loved. I mean WOW!

A Moonbow Night is my third Laura Frantz book, and boy this was one explosive novel! It’s a clean, slightly Christian themed historical romance and her latest release. Previously I’ve read The Mistress of Tall Acre and The Colonel’s Lady; I loved the first, was very frustrated with the other but I knew I’d like to try another of her book soon. This one definitely takes the cake! It wasn’t just the writing and the historical research (loved how she integrated the Daniel Boone and family as a part of the storyline) - Ms. Frantz excels in both gracefully - but also the story itself. So many things were happening; sometimes warm and fuzzy that’ll put a smile on your face, while other times something really, really heart-wrenching! It says a lot when it took me about the first 40% of the book to get into the story cause I found all the references made quite confusing.

Sion Morgan, a Welsh descendant surveyor, was on a mission to survey the areas around the Shawnee Rivers (pardon my geography; I don’t live in the US). He had to check out this backwaters, where the lands are equally full of temptation and danger, for the approaching settlers. Sion knew it would be one of the most dangerous jobs out there, with the Indians on the hunt for human scalp, but he was very dedicated. He had a small group of men helping him, which included an elderly man called Nate, their mapmaker, and not so helpful, Cornelius Lyon and Cornelius’s manservant Aidan. Two chain bearers as well.

Early Review – No Surrender by Patrick Bisher with Jon Land #PatrickBisher @jondland
No Surrender: Faith, Family, and Finding Your Way - Patrick Bisher,Jon Land

No Surrender by Patrick Bisher & Jon Land was not what I expected, but so much more than I anticipated.

 

The true story is disheartening and uplifting, emotions flitting through the pages like butterflies through the air, leaving me feeling like all things are possible.

 

This is an early review and the book is up for preorder, releasing July 4, 2017.

This is one you won’t want to miss.

 

No Surrender: Faith, Family, and Finding Your Way

Amazon  /  Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

Patrick Bisher’s true story is all about overcoming hardship and finding his true path in life. His determination and perseverance can be an inspiration to us all, giving us hope and encouragement to dream and reach for it.

 

Michigan is my home state, so knowing Patrick is a fellow Michigander made me want to know his story even more. He is an amazing  man with a story to share that we can all walk away from being better off for knowing it.

 

Imagine, as a child, a 9 year old boy, hearing, “You’ll never be able to walk again.” When I read that, the first thought to pop into my mind was One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.

 

At the end of each chapter is an inspirational summary of ‘What you can learn from this.’

 

Patrick takes us from a childhood of bullying, harassment, despair and pain, to an adulthood filled with hope and determination and a desire to inspire and uplift. He is dealt blow after blow, struggling to find his way through every setback. Even when he is lost, he finds an inner strength.

 

Life is full of surprises and the road twists and turns, a journey we must all take, but there is no straight line.

 

Funny that he also tasted the General Motors life and found it lacking. I worked there for fifteen years and took early retirement because I wanted more. It felt like a prison to me and I had to spread my wings. Sometimes we have to take a leap of faith. No risk, no reward.

 

I totally agree with his final chapter and it concerns me for our country’s future.

 

Patrick believes in Paying It Forward. His story takes us from him being bullied and labeled as a cripple who would never amount to anything, to being a Navy SEAL, when everyone said it wasn’t possible, to giving back to all those who need a little help in achieving their goals and desires.

 

Believe…believe in yourself.

 

I felt so good after reading No Surrender and I want to thank Patrick for his service to our country and his willingness to share what he has learned with all of us.

 

I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of No Surrender by Patrick Bisher & Jon Land.

More Social Media Hype
The Decoded Company: Know Your Talent Better Than You Know Your Customers - Leerom Segal,Aaron Goldstein,Jay Goldman,Rahaf Harfoush

I listened to the audio book and it really does not live up to its subtitle.

 

The book is ready by two of the authors and this is a huge mistake and the authors should have hired a professional to read their audio book.

 

While I do agree that the one size fits all in large companies/corporate America is the wrong way to approach things and that the world is changing that is really the only thing that I liked about the book.

 

Much of the other parts of the book sounded like ideas recycled from other book and I really did not like that they cite Timothy Ferris' 4 Hour Work Week and 4 Hour Body because I read the 4 Hour Work Week and find it dubious.  

 

I cannot recommend this book.

Your Perfectly Pampered Menopause: Health, Beauty, and Lifestyle Advice for the Best Years of Your Life - Colette Bouchez

This book is very informative.  I will need to keep this one for reference. How did I ever get this old? I definitely don't feel this old.
