Blog Update

Hey Everyone
I want to apologize for not keeping my blog updated lately. I have been busy with my knitting business. On another note my husband and I are going through something very personal I don’t want to talk about it. Don’t worry it has nothing to do with our marriage we are doing good. We will be going out of town for a while. I will try to do some reading while we are gone but it will be hard because we are going to be busy. I hope everyone is having a good week.

Review: Throne of Grace (Cliff Walk Courtships Book 1) by Cecily Wolfe

Arthur Davenport has it all: looks, money, and a successful future planned by his parents. He knows that something is missing, but when he and Josie, his mother's maid, develop a friendship that can only be based on Christian values, he realizes that his love for her is the key to his happiness. Can he convince her that he would gladly give up his life of luxury for a life of service with her?

Newport Rhode Island in the last decades of the nineteenth century was a stunningly beautiful and glamorous playground for the rich during the summer months, and perfect setting for a romance between a rich young man from New York City and a local girl who works for his family. The two couldn't possibly expect to have anything in common, as he is expected to follow his father in a financial career and she is merely a maid with a mother who takes care of  local children while their parents work.

Arthur Davenport spoiled and bored, unsure  of his place in his family and in the eyes pf God, truly meets his match in Josie Warren, who is often just a nit hard on herself for not being the perfect Christian in thought as well as deed. The two meet on the famous Cliff Walk, and neither of them can imagine where or how their instant attraction will take them as he struggles to make his parents understand that his calling is the same as hers, to help those less fortunate. He has no money of his own, and if they disinherit him out of disapproval, how can he help Josie, who has spent her life working hard to help support herself and her mother?  More importantly, how can he convince her that he would gladly give up his life of luxury just to be with her?

Wow what a truly amazing book. I absolutely loved it. I couldn't put it down. It is so sweet and romantic. I would highly recommend this book. I am looking forward to reading the other books in this series.

Happy Reading Everyone!

Review: The Competition by Cecily Wolfe

Here is a summary of what the book is about. For Mary Sofia, The Penultimate writing competition is more than a chance at a free college education; she wants to show her younger siblings that they can all rise above their violent family history. For Raiden, the pressure to succeed comes from within, although he knows that family traditions play a part in his determination.

For Camara, writing fiction is almost compulsive, but her own dark secret maybe the best story she can ever tell. For Michael, swimming and writing fit his introverted personality perfectly, but meeting a smart and beautiful girl at The Penultimate makes stepping outside of his comfort zone easy.

All four will compete against each other along with 96 other high school juniors for the chance of a lifetime: a full scholarship to a prestigious private college. Some students will do anything to win, but others may pay the price.

I thought this book was well written. It was a very interesting story. I found some unexpected twists in this book.

I look forward to reading more books by this author.

Happy Reading Everyone!
