Another week has come and gone at ReadLove ! Here’s what you may have missed:
Christian Chapters: A Faith of Her Own by Kathleen Fuller
4.5 of 5 Hearts. Kathleen Fuller’s Latest Visit To Middlefield Refreshes The Soul.
Fans of Beverly Lewis and James Herriot will find much to love in this story of a young Amish woman seeking A Faith of Her Own.
Kids Corner: The Troubles of Johnny Cannon by Isaiah Campbell
3.5 of 5 Hearts. Part Realistic Historical, Part Unbelievable Spy Thriller.
The Troubles of Johnny Cannon is essentially a tale of two Johnnys. While the action that takes place in Cullman, Alabama, is authentic and sincere, when Johnny comes face to face with Castro in Cuba, it feels like the ship has steered into entirely different waters. Still, readers who like heavy doses of action may be willing to suspend their disbelief long enough to learn some important lessons.
Kids Corner: T.A. Barron – “Countdown to a Meaningful Life” – One Last Word: LOVE
ReadLove joins T.A. Barron for a blog series to celebrate the upcoming publication of The Wisdom of Merlin: 7 Magical Words for a Meaningful Life. This campaign is based on Merlin’s answer to the question, “What is the meaning of life?” Surprisingly, the answer has only seven words…but they are the most powerful words of all.
For seven weeks, we have focused on seven magical words that took us on an inspiring journey. You might have thought that with the seventh word, the campaign was over…but think again.
There is one last word that flows through each of the seven magical words and which Merlin considers “the most magical word of all”: Love.
The Last Word: Love [Read the full article]
That’s everything that happened on ReadLove this week. See you next week!
Until then, I’d love it if you shared a bit about your week in the comments!
