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, 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!
