A Song Among the Trees By Susan Meissner

I received this book from bloggingforbooks.com for free for my honest review of this book.

Book Description:
A house shrouded in time.
A line of women with a heritage of loss.

As a young bride, Susannah Page was rumored to be a Civil War spy for the North, a traitor to her Virginian roots. Her great-granddaughter Adelaide, the current matriarch of Holly Oak, doesn’t believe that Susannah’s ghost haunts the antebellum mansion looking for a pardon, but rather the house itself bears a grudge toward its tragic past.

When Marielle Bishop marries into the family and is transplanted from the arid west to her husband’s home, it isn’t long before she is led to believe that the house she just settled into brings misfortune to the women who live there.

With Adelaide’s richly peppered superstitions and deep family roots at stake, Marielle must sort out the truth about Susannah Page and Holly Oak— and make peace with the sacrifices she has made for love.

My Thoughts:
A Sound Among the Trees is the first b…

Book Description:

"A Perfect Plan" by Beth Wiseman

Priscilla King has been planning to marry Chester Lapp since she was sixteen years old, and when Chester proposes on Priscilla’s nineteenth birthday, wedding plans begin immediately. What wasn't planned was all the problems the couple encounters as their big day approaches. A house disaster, a ruined wedding dress, and a sick attendant all make the couple wonder if God's sending them signs to call things off.

"The Perfect Match" by Kathleen Fuller

Love On The Line by Deeanne Gist

I received this book from Bethany House Publishers for free for my honest review of this book.

Book Description:

Rural switchboard operator Georgie Gail is proud of her independence in a man's world ... which makes it twice as vexing when the telephone company sends a man to look over her shoulder.

Dashing Luke Palmer is more than he appears though. He's a Texas Ranger working undercover to infiltrate a notorious gang of train robbers. Repairing telephones and tangling with this tempestuous woman is the last thing he wants to do. But when his stake out puts Georgie in peril, he realizes more than his job is on the line.

My Thoughts:
I am a huge fan of Deanne Gist's books. I have read almost all of them and find myself not able to put them down. Love On The Line didn't seem to hold me the way the others did. The book was well researched as far as the era, telephone history, and even the information about birds and bird watching. I found the history information very intere…

Forever Faithful By Karen Kingsbury

I received this book from Waterbrook Multnomah's Blogging For Books program for free for my honest review of this book.

Book Description:
The entire best-selling Forever Faithful trilogy, now available in one volume:

Waiting for Morning
A drunk driver...a deadly accident...a dream destroyed. When Hannah Ryan loses her husband and oldest daughter to a drunk driver, she is consumed with hate and revenge. Ultimately, it is a kind prosecutor, a wise widow, and her husband's dying words that bring her the peace that will set her free and let her live again.

A Moment of Weakness
When childhood friends Jade and Tanner reunite as adults, they share their hearts, souls, and dreams of forever--until a fateful decision tears them apart. Now, nearly a decade later, Jade's unfaithful husband wants to destroy her in a custody battle that is about to send shock waves across the United States. Only one man can help Jade in her darkest hour. And only one old woman knows the truth that…

Reclaiming Lily By Patti Lacy

I received this book from Bethany House Publishers free for my honest opinion of this book.

Book Description:
When an insidious genetic disease strikes her family, Harvard graduate Dr. Kai Chang must alert Lily, the sister Kai left on orphanage steps years earlier. Standing in her way are the Powells, Lily's adoptive parents. Gloria Powell distrusts Kai and thinks her presence will send their troubled seventeen-year-old over the precipice of teenaged angst. Can Kai and Gloria, separated by culture and faith but devoted to Lily, reconcile their differences and trust their dreams to God?


My Thoughts:

Reclaiming Lily is the second book by Patti Lacy I have had the privilege to read. Reclaiming Lily is a beautiful story of a Chinese family torn apart by revolution, an American Family who adopts one of the Chinese children, and a sister whose life goal is to honor her mother's dying wish of Reclaiming Lily. Dr. Kai Chang figures out that her mother died of a hereditary disease, Polycy…
