The Creole Princess

by Beth White

First of all, BEAUTIFUL COVER!!! That’s a huge part of my review right there!!! Simply gorgeous! Secondly, this is a fun book centering around the Revolutionary War. You had me at … Well, both of those things!!!

I’ll admit, the beginning was a bit confusing with all the names getting thrown at you. As the book goes on, you start to follow. Lyse, the main character, has a rich ethnic background and trying to follow her line is CRAZY!

That being said, it was a fun read! Pirates, the war, spies, and romance. All right up my alley!!! It was a book about accepting who you are without reservation, bringing God glory in it and showing His love. It seemed like it might have been written more towards a YA audience, but I am not sure if that was the intent.

Pick up a copy for yourself and a friend! The link is in the pic above!! Thanks, Revell, for this fun read! As always, this is my honest opinion. Here’s to many more!!

The Creole Princess
A Novel

BACK COVER

Torn between loyalties to family and flag, one young woman is about to discover that her most important allegiance is to her heart.

It is 1776 and all along the eastern seaboard, the American struggle for independence rages. But in the British-held southern port of Mobile, Alabama, the conflict brewing is much quieter—though no less deadly.

Lyse Lanier may be French in heritage, but she spends most of her time in the company of the ebullient daughter of the British commander of Mobile. When a charming young Spanish merchant docks in town, Lyse is immediately struck by his easy wit and flair for the dramatic.

But is he truly who he makes himself out to be? Spies abound, and Spain has yet to choose a side in the American conflict. Is Lyse simply an easy mark for Rafael Gonzalez to exploit? Or are his overtures of love as genuine as Spanish gold?

With spectacular detail that brings the cultural gumbo of the Colonial Gulf Coast alive, Beth White invites you to step into a world of intrigue and espionage from a little-known slice of the American Revolutionary War.

Son of Hamas

by Mosab Hassan Yousef (with Ron Brackin)

son of hamas

Oh My Goodness. Let me just tell you that this is one of the most amazing books you will ever read. If you follow the news AT ALL, you have heard of the Hamas. They are responsible for many suicide bombings and other attacks that you have seen and heard about in Israel. This is the story of Sheikh Hassan Yousef’s son and heir to the Hamas legacy.

Sheikh was one of the founding fathers of the Hamas, and, by far, the most powerful. His son, Mosab, was expected to follow in his footsteps and lead this radical group. All was in place until he was shown the amazing love and mercy of Christ and begin to work and spy for Israel.

This is 100% true and will keep you wide awake while reading it at 2:00am (since most of us are mommies and that’s the first freakin’ second we have to ourselves).

While this is not a new release (copyright 2010, 2011), a movie, The Green Prince (based on the code name used by the Israelis), is coming to theaters and is a MUST SEE.

You can look at this website to find out when it is coming to a theater near you. If it isn’t, you can request it:
