Christian Fiction and Non-Fiction Reviews and Nuggets from Life!

This past month has been really busy and I haven't had the opportunity to post. It was my busiest time of the year at work and my husband and I became grandparents again with the birth of grandson.

This is a must read series and a must read book.

About the Book Name of book: Bitter Eyes No More Author: April W Gardner Genre: Historical Romance Release Date: Feb, 2017 A man of abiding honor, tested by a woman of ruinous passion. A woman of unspeakable sins, pursued by a God of unquenchable mercy. Spanish Florida once sheltered Lillian McGirth from her fears. Now, it feeds them. Mercy is for the deserving; for Lillian, an unwed mother accused of treason, there is only battering and defeat, but her fall breaks softly in the arms of an unexpected arrival, a man too beautiful of soul to stain with her lost character. Captain Marcus Buck sails in on a pledge to save Miss McGirth from herself and from her child’s father, a ruthless don. All the while, he’s to regard her as virtuous and worthy of protection and to guard said virtue from pilfering. But the terms are flawed since he must first guard her from himself. Regardless, he is determined. He will free her, repair her name—simple labor compared to dodging
