How can you go wrong with a story idea like this??
– A hard-working, widower soldier that needs help with his two wild daughters.
– A former dance-hall singer posing as a mennonite teacher hired to teach said daughters.

I mean, seriously…what could go wrong?

This is such a fun story. Regina Jennings always has great characters that are full of personality and character. There is plenty to keep the story moving along without it feeling like a heart-racing read. I, for one, prefer not to be stressed out through an entire book and she keeps a great balance!

Be sure to pick up a copy of this one. Go through the link in the pic and get it by Christmas!! Isn’t that cover beautiful? You know that your mom, sister and best friend would be thrilled to open this up!

Thanks so much, Bethany House, for this awesome book. As always, this is my honest opinion. Here’s to many more!

BTW – Check out my fun face-off with this lovely lady!!

A Moonbow Night

by Laura Frantz

First of all, if you haven’t ever heard of a moonbow, it’s pretty much what it sounds like. A lunar rainbow.  double-moonbow-in-dorgaliIt’s gorgeous, isn’t it?

Secondly, let me just say that if you are looking for a “Hallmark” style book, keep on walking. Laura Frantz doesn’t do anything halfway and this is proof!! There’s a reason why she is my favorite such a popular author. 😉

So, let’s get into it.

Ever heard of Daniel Boone? Well, you are going to learn a LOT about him and the things he did during his life. Laura always incorporates so much history and geography in her books. It’s incredible how much I learn with each one. Of course, it’s mixed with such great storytelling and really deep characters that you barely realize you you learning (not that I mind. I am a HUGE history buff).

You will fall in love with Tempe and Sion as you read this story. They work through great loss, crippling fear, and the hardships of life on the unpioneered frontier; both individually and together. Their faith is tested and their lives are fluidly changing. Nothing unrealistic here. Only the eye opening realism of life in “Kentucke” 1777.

Pick up your copy ASAP! You won’t want to miss this one. You can also check out my face-off with this lovely lady HERE. Also, for some extra fun, you can go to her pinterest page dedicated to A Moonbow Night.
