Don’t Miss This Awe Inspiring True Story!

7 Lessons From Heaven is a book about Dr. Mary Neal’s incredible afterlife experience. This book does not only describe her near-death-experience but also how angels often intervene in our everyday lives. She also writes about how living a joy-filled life is easy, once you truly understand what awaits you after death.

Dr. Mary Neal had a kayaking accident in Chile and drowned. According to scientific data, anyone experiencing what Dr. Neal did, would be dead. But Dr. Neal is not only alive, and well without any brain damage, she is currently a practicing board-certified orthopedic spinal surgeon in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Her near death experience boggled my mind. One of the most comforting parts of her story was that she had no fear, none at all. The moment Dr. Neal realized she wasn’t going to survive the accident, she was engulfed in love. She tells her story with amazing detail. This book is so heartwarming that I didn’t want it to end. I savored each page.

Dr. Neal includes in her book, stories about how angels not only intervened in her life but others as well. She also talks about meeting Jesus and having a life review. The last part of the book is dedicated to living a joy filled life knowing that God’s promises are true. If you were not convinced before reading this book, that there is indeed an afterlife, Dr. Neal’s true account will erase all doubt. Highly recommended.

Summer that made us:850::.jpg.jpg

Don’t Miss this Touching & Memorable New Release by Robyn Carr. I loved Every Page of This Superbly Written Novel!

The Summer That Made Us–Coming 9/5/17–Check It Out!

The Summer That Made Us is an amazing book that touches the soul. It’s an emotional story about loss, heartache, healing and forgiveness.

The summer house on Lake Waseka was a special place for Jo and Lou, and their daughters, until a tragic accident occurred. The two Hempstead families were always a bit dysfunctional, but after the accident, they completely fell apart. The two sisters, Jo and Lou who were once inseparable, were now estranged, and their daughters, permanently scarred.

The summer house had been off limits for over twenty-five years. Meg, one of the daughters, however, has Cancer, and wished to spend her last summer at the lake house. Meg was the kindest sweetest and most giving daughter of them all, but she wasn’t done yet. Meg had one last gift to give everyone.

This story moved me to tears, made me laugh and warmed my heart. I loved every page of this superbly written, uplifting and heart wrenching tale. Do yourself a favor and don’t miss out on reading this quality book; crafted with raw emotion, rich dialogue, and fully developed characters.

Thank you, Harlequin and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy! I loved it.

Messages from a Wonderful Afterlife by Kristy Robinett

aug 8::.jpg

Don’t Miss Kristy Robinett’s New Release, Coming 8/8/17

 

Messages From a Wonderful Afterlife is an enlightening and fascinating read. In this book, the reader discovers some possible signs that a deceased loved one may use to send a message. Kristy Robinett talks about her own life, and experiences, as well as giving the reader; a peek into some of the sessions that she’s had with her clients.

I found the author’s words encouraging and positive. The stories in the book demonstrate how comforting connecting with a deceased relative can be. Death is a difficult subject to talk and read about. But, Kristy Robinett’s message is clear, there is an afterlife, and it is wonderful!

Messages From a Wonderful Afterlife is an easy to read, well-written, and informative book. Thank you, Llewellyn Publications and NetGalley for my advanced review copy.

The Return by Suzanne Woods Fisher

The Return:850.jpg
Don’t Miss This Fabulous New Release by Suzanne Woods Fisher!

 

The Return is a fascinating story depicting the unrest in Pennsylvania during the 1700s between the early settlers, Amish and the Indians.

Bairn Bauer was a well known Amish Pastor in Lancaster County. He was, however, according to many of his parishioners, too liberal with the Indians. Bairn and his wife treated the Indians the same as they would treat anyone; with kindness and respect. John Elder, a Scots-Irish preacher, didn’t share Bairn Bauer’s beliefs at all, and regularly stirred up trouble.

Tessa Bauer, the preacher’s daughter was often teased about being freakishly tall and outspoken. She felt, however, that her height and impolite mannerisms were the least of her faults. Her problem was jealousy. The man she loved, had eyes only for her friend Betsy. She was beautiful, kind, and petite. Tessa often wished that her friend would just disappear. And then, to everyone’s surprise, she did.

When Betsy was taken by the Indians, Tessa was torn up with guilt. The guilt she felt however, didn’t stop her from going after Hans. Although, she loved being with Hans, Tessa knew that his heart still belonged to Betsy. Unfortunately, wishing Betsy gone, was not the worse thing, jealousy would drive Tessa to do.

Caleb, a half-breed Indian took Betsy under his wing and helped her through a difficult transition. Caleb believed himself to be a nobody, but in reality, he was the most amazing character in the book. He sacrificed and put himself in danger, to help others, again and again, and never asked for anything in return.

This is the first book that I have read by this author, but it won’t be my last. The writing is superb, and the story, uplifting and captivating. The book touches on many subjects, such as: love, trusting God, the danger of prejudice and jealousy, and the healing balm of forgiveness.

Thank you, Revell publishing and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy. I loved it!

Walking Into The Unknown by Ginny Dye

Walking into the unknown.

 

I have read every book in The Bregdan Chronicles Series, and have enjoyed them all. Although Walking Into the Unknown was my least favorite, I still found the book to be inspirational and uplifting. The lengthy descriptions and flashbacks, though, did slow the pace of the book down.

Walking Into The Unknown begins where book nine left off. Carrie Borden is on Cromwell plantation grieving the loss of her husband, Robert. Even though, Carrie knew that Robert died saving someone whom they both loved, her pain still crippled her. To complete her medical degree and get away from the plantation where she had lived with Robert, Carrie decided to travel to New Mexico and help the oppressed Navajo Indians. The Indians had been forced from their land to Basque Redondo, a new Reservation. Ever since the move, though, they have been dying of starvation and disease. So, Carrie gathered up a team of medical students who were willing to travel to New Mexico, across rough and dangerous terrain by wagon, in order to assist the Indians in need.

I loved reading about the Navajo Indians and wished that the book contained even more about them. It’s obvious, though, that the author did a lot of research for this novel. All in all, I enjoyed Walking Into the Unknown and will definitely continue reading The Bregdan Chronicles Series.

The Idea of You by Amanda Prowse

The Idea of you 4.99

 

Don’t Miss Amanda Prowse’s Newest Release!

The Idea of You, A Beautiful Story, Well Told!

 

The Idea of You is a powerful and moving story.
Anyone who has lost a child, battled with a teen, or struggled with a blended family, will be wholly immersed in, and captivated with this novel.

Lucy and Jonah Carpenter were heart-broken; the pain of three miscarriages had taken its toll. The overwhelming sadness in their home was straining their marriage. Lucy was also agonizing over a tense relationship with Jonah’s teenage daughter as well as with her own mother. But, what was really wearing Lucy down was the dark secret she had unsuccessfully tried to bury.

Lucy’s sister, Fay, envied Lucy because of her prestigious job, and the free time that came along with having no children. But, what Fay didn’t realize was that Lucy was aching to have a child of her own, to cuddle with, cook for, and fuss over.

This is a beautifully written book about parenthood, relationships, and families. Life can be cruel, and unfair, but it can also be exhilarating, blissful and full of love. This story flows effortlessly, allowing the reader to feel, ponder, and like a soothing balm, even heal. Amanda Prowse is an amazing writer, and an author I’m glad I found.

Thank you, Lake Union Publishing and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy!
