The Princess
The Princess
by Lori Wick
Edition: Paperback
40 used & new from CDN$ 0.01

5.0 out of 5 stars This was a wonderful book!, Jan. 27 2001
This review is from: The Princess (Paperback)
The Pricess is one of my favorite books. Sometimes I think about a certain part of it, go to read that part, and then end up rereading practically the whole book! The story is about Shelby, a woman who marries Prince Nikolai, a stranger to her who just lost his wife. It shows the way their relationship grows and how they both struggle to accept each other. They both have to learn that love is a choice, and they face many difficulties as they learn that lesson. This book shows the power of prayer and love in the lives of two of God's children.

This review is from: Only You, Sierra (Paperback)
In this book, Sierra Jenson is heading back to the US after a missionary trip in Europe. Only she's not going back to Texas. While she was in Europe her family moved to Oregon to live with her Granna Mae, who is old and needs care. On the way back to America, Sierra meets another American : a boy that amazingly has connections to other people in her life. Even after they part, Sierra can't get her mind off Paul. She has given him some advice that she doubts he'd take, but all she can do is pray for this mysterious boy. After arriving in Oregon, Sierra has a hard time adjusting to her new life. Her family has had time to get settled, but they expect Sierra to adapt right away to her new circumstances. She dislikes the school she's going to and has difficulty dealing with her grandmother's memory lapses. And she stilll can't keep her mind off of Paul. Then Sierra tries to sort out her life. She tries harder to adjust to school, her grandmother's mind starts to get a bit better, and then she receive a very interesting letter... This is one of the best books I've ever read. It kept me laughing and also encouraged me. If you read only one fictional book this year, make it this one!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Moon-Spinners!, July 4 2000
This review is from: The Moon-Spinners (VHS Tape)
This was a great movie. It had suspense, mystery, and even a little romance. I was glad there were no commercials when I saw it so I didn't have to wait for what happened next. What was it all about? It had to do with stolen jewels and attempted murder (or was it murders?) Let me just say I'm glad I wasn't living it in real life...

The Calling of Emily Evans
The Calling of Emily Evans
by Janette Oke
Edition: Paperback
62 used & new from CDN$ 0.01

5.0 out of 5 stars The Calling of Emily Evans - A GREAT book!, June 9 2000
This book is about a woman who is called by God to set up a church. She has many problems along the way, including poor attendance, a low food supply, and a difficulty convincing people that God is indeed real and needed in every single life. She does NOT step out of the boundaries of the Bible. Emily simply sets up a church and teaches because there is no preacher in the area. She doesn't preach, only tries to help people see the importance of a faith in God and tries to help them understand the Bible and how important it is. This is a wonderful book that helped me understand things more clearly and get things sorted out in my own faith. I thank Janette Oke for writing such a great book.

A Woman Named Damaris
A Woman Named Damaris
by Janette Oke
Edition: Paperback
30 used & new from CDN$ 0.01

5.0 out of 5 stars I LOVED this book!, June 4 2000
This review is from: A Woman Named Damaris (Paperback)
This book is about a girl named Damaris. She grew up in a home with an alcoholic and abusive father. She finally decides to run away. Damaris joins a wagon train heading west. When she finally reaches the end of the journey, she finds herself working for three people, all who are good to her. She boards with one of them, but she finds a true friend in Miss Dover, another of her employers, who helps her find what she has been searching for : her name in the Bible. With the search for her name, she finds something more, something that Damaris desperately needs : a relationship with God. Her faith helps her through many challenges, including her adoption of three orphan children. One of the things I love about this book is the connection to the Prairie Legacy series. (*Note* look at the name Lewis to find the connection!) Janette Oke fans will love this book. Even if you've never read them, you'll still love it! So read it as soon as you can get your hands on a copy!

The Young Unicorns

5.0 out of 5 stars The Young Unicorns, May 27 2000
This is a wonderful book. I loved it. It was full of mystery and suspense. The end is a shock. You just NEVER suspect it. This book is about the Austin family in New York. It also includes some new main characters, Emily and Dave. The book involves an attempt to control the city, then the world. The plan to take over almost comes true. This book is one that any person should read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Troubling a Star, May 27 2000
This was an awesome book! It's one of my favorites. It has everything that makes a book great : mystery, suspense, even a little romance. This book is about a naive teenager named Vicky Austin. She receives an amazing gift from the great-aunt of a good family friend, Adam Eddington : a trip to Antarctica. On the way, Vicky makes some new friends. Some are good, true friends who are on her side. Others are not what they seem. She ends up involved in a struggle for money and power. Vicky's life is in danger, and she can't get out of it without help, which comes from a source very welcome by the readers. Throughout the book, Vicky grows up, and learns much about herself and about the other people in her life. Like I said, this is a great book, really fabulous. Give it a try. You might just enjoy it.

This is a wonderful book. It is sweet and funny, especially the last chapter. You will find youself smiling over it. Two children try to get their elderly parents together. In the end, the results are delightful, though much different than they imagined. All in all, it is a wonderful book.
