It has been a busy time at work getting ready for the annual meeting. I'm still reading, of course. I just have not been able to post anything because of the time.
REVIEWS FOR TWO BOOKS I'VE READ
AMONGST THE FLAMES BY T.K. CHAPIN
I enjoyed this book. I read it in two days. The heart of the story is family. This is seen through a male firefighter's perspective, Cole's. God draws Cole back to Him when everything Cole takes for granted in one day is gone. You see God's hand all through this novel in a healing and mighty way. I enjoyed seeing this story through the eyes of the main character, Cole. The problem that surfaces in his life is one that affects many marriages today. Cole is faced with a decision that will change his whole life. This novel gathers marital problems and reveals that godly men are not quiet but they take a stand on God's word and mentor those that cross their path. The mentor to Cole is a likeable guy that encourages Cole and often reminds him of the truth whether Cole wanted to hear it or not. We live in an imperfect world with imperfect people and family problems arise. Some may be easy to get through yet others are much harder. I was reminded to not take anything for granted, it can be gone in the blink of an eye. Forgiveness is hard but necessary to grow in my walk with the Lord! Forgiving others and for others to forgive me, that power comes only from God.
This is a good book. At times it was a challenge to read because it was a bit difficult to keep my attention and in other places it wasn't and I wanted to keep reading. It does help one know the perspective of a child that lived through WWII. It did end in the way I hoped.

New Christian Series by A.M. Heath
I have just finished the first book in this series "From Where Can I Flee". I enjoyed this book, It has a different perspective from one soldier that I don't remembering reading in any other Civil War Fiction Book.The author weaves God's graciousness all through the pages. I was holding my breath when I finished the last chapter, relieved and looking forward to the next book in this series to read more about these characters and what God does in their lives. Hard times are still ahead of them and I eagerly wait to see how they face those challenges.

I hope everyone has had a great weekend! It has been a bit cooler here in Oklahoma, I love this kind of weather.
I finished reading "The Lost Heiress" by Roseanna M. White
This is the first book by her that I have read and I will be reading more. "The Lost Heiress" is a delightful book that keeps you on your toes not knowing who exactly can be trusted within the pages.
It was hard to put down. The story is beautifully written and the storyline very well thought out and put to paper. The good characters will find their way into your heart and you will find yourself wanting to warn them of the evil characters. I won't go into details because you need to read the book. Believe me, you will not be disappointed.
