Another week has come and gone at ReadLove ! Here’s what you may have missed:
Christian Chapters: Hannah’s Choice by Jan Drexler
3.5 of 5 Hearts. An Engaging, Yet Somber View of Amish Life in Conestoga, Pennsylvania, 1842.
Jan Drexel gives the reader a carefully researched, historically rich look at the forces which may have led Amish settlers, including some of her own ancestors, to leave Lancaster County and travel westward to Indiana. Though somber, Hannah’s Choice never loses hope while carrying its message that nothing is more important than faith and family.
Non-Fiction Shelves – You’re Already Amazing LifeGrowth Guide by Holley Gerth
5 of 5 Hearts. An Encouraging, Empowering, Scripturally-Sound Guide To Becoming the You God Created You To Be.
If you’re feeling lost, broken, unloved, imperfect, insignificant, overwhelmed, or all of these things, don’t fret. Holley Gerth’s You’re Already Amazing LifeGrowth Guide can help. You might say it’s like a road map, or, if you’re directionally challenged like I am, a GPS for your heart. What’s more, it’s as comforting as chocolate, hot cocoa, coffee, or ice cream! My advice? Set down your burden, dry your tears, pour a cup of tea or grab a cookie, and sit down for a “talk” with Holley!
Christian Chapters: A Reluctant Bride by Kathleen Fuller
5 of 5 Hearts. A Beautiful Testament to God’s Ability to Rebuild, Renew, and Restore.
A Reluctant Bride is not a fairy-tale romance or swoon fest, but it demonstrates clearly how God can take broken pieces of shattered hearts and create something not only beautiful but unbreakable. For that reason, it may just be the perfect love story.
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!
