Candle In The Darkness
Candle In The Darkness
by Lynn Austin
Edition: Paperback
Price: CDN$ 13.60

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderfully written, June 26 2003
This review is from: Candle In The Darkness (Paperback)
Having grown up in Virigina, and being well aquainted with our Civil War history, I found Lynn Austin's story telling to be beyond excellent. The words she uses paints a facinating picture of not only Richmond, but of life during those times. This story of Caroline grips you from the first page, and never disappoints. Thanks for a wonderfully written story. I can't wait for book two in the series!

5.0 out of 5 stars Meet the O'Malley's - you'll love them!, Feb. 10 2002
This review is from: Negotiator (Mass Market Paperback)
Did you read DANGER IN THE SHADOWS? If not, DO IT! There you will meet Dave Richman, the FBI Hero of this book. You don't have to read DANGER before reading NEGOTIATOR, but you will want to read both of them, and all the following Henderson books. In NEGOTIATOR, Kate O'Malley is a negotiator, a very good one. In her world she struggles with how justice and mercy can co-exist. Dave Richman is an FBI agent who believes that God is merciful and just, and struggles with helping Kate understand. Throw in a major blow-up, a plot that keeps you guessing, plus a friends/family unit of support that is incredibally realistic, and you have a book you won't want to put down. You will also want to attend the next O'Malley family gathering! I am so glad that Ms. Henderson invites us to join the family in several other books. Don't miss them!

The Truth Seeker
The Truth Seeker

5.0 out of 5 stars This time it is Lisa and Quinn........, Feb. 4 2002
This review is from: The Truth Seeker (Paperback)
This continuing saga of the O'Malley clan focuses on Lisa. I love the way Dee Henderson has created such a diverse and rich family unit with the O'Malleys. A noted forensic pathologist to her peers, Lisa is the one the family sees as always getting herself into trouble. The trouble this time is very real, and in the end helps her come to some life changing decisions. Dee has a wonderful way with words, and I especially like the way she has artfully told a few scenes in this book in retrospect. Just read it and you will see what I mean!
Another plus about this series is that you can start with this story and it won't mess you up to go back and read the others. While the family steps in and out of each others lives, their devotion to each other is a constant theme. One book about the O'Malley's and you will definately want to meet the rest of them!

RIVERS OF GOLD
RIVERS OF GOLD
by Tracie Peterson
Edition: Paperback
35 used & new from CDN$ 0.01

5.0 out of 5 stars The Alaskan Adventure continues........, Feb. 4 2002
This review is from: RIVERS OF GOLD (Paperback)
Tracie Peterson has done another wonderful job of storytelling. The continuning tale of Grace, Peter, Karen and their families, is really a story of forgiveness, acceptance, contentment and learning to trust. Ms. Peterson does a great job of creating "real" characters, and the descriptions of the Alaska Gold Rush seemed real to me as well. I have always liked the way she weaves faith throughout her stories with out being "preachy". A must read if you have read the first two in the series, and all three a must if you haven't yet started!

The Protector

5.0 out of 5 stars Dee Henderson does it again!, Oct. 26 2001
This review is from: The Protector (Paperback)
With an ongoing series, there usually comes a book that is good, but not as good as the rest. Not so with Dee Henderson's O'MALLEY series. Each book brings us a different "family" member, yet each can stand alone with it's characters and story -and they all are great reads! Jack, the firefighter brother, is the central character of THE PROTECTOR. As in each of the O'Malley books, there is a mystery to solve (I was surprised at whodoneit!) as well as self discovery for the characters. Ms. Henderson writes characters that you can believe exist, that you can identify with as they struggle, and rejoice with as they find answers.
I really enjoyed meeting not only Jack and his friends in this book, but also Rachel, the subject of the next O'Malley book. Plus, we got up to date on the other family memebers...if you haven't read any thing from Dee Henderson - start now. If you have keep at it! THE PROCTECTOR won't let you down!

5.0 out of 5 stars A blast and a half!, Feb. 17 2001
Very well done pop-up book with a great wind-up rocket that travels through "space" on "track" pages. Great packaging, great art work, all around nicely done. As my wind-up collector husband says - "excellent"! And the kids loved it the one time he let them play with it as well!

MAIDEN OF MAYFAIR, THE
MAIDEN OF MAYFAIR, THE
by Lawana Blackwell
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Lawanna Blackwell does it again!, Feb. 11 2001
This review is from: MAIDEN OF MAYFAIR, THE (Paperback)
Once again, Lawanna Blackwell transports you back to times past. Her characters become real - you can feel their joy, their pain, their struggles, their victories. The Maiden of Mayfair brings us a new family with all of the above. It is a wonderfully written tale of learning how to forgive, and how our selfish actions can affect the lives of others. Ms. Blackwell does an excellent job of teaching her characters about God's love and forgiveness by using their true to life circumstances. All of her books are believable, readable, and hard to put down! This one is no exception.

Looking for You All My Life
Looking for You All My Life
by Melody A. Carlson
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Will it ever snow - will Jed and Maggie ever get together?, July 18 2000
Once again you are back in Pine Mountain for the third book in the series, and once again you will be delighted at the happenings in this small tourist town. Melody Carlson blends forgiveness and misunderstanding into a delightful tale that involves all the characters from the other two, as well as some new ones (villans of course!). You will struggle for truth with the Pine Cone news crew, want to ground Leah for her mostly unintentional actions, find yourself praying for snow and cheer for Maggie and Jed as they discover what peace God has for them. A must series for anyone who has ever lived in a small town, as well as those who want to know what it would be like to live in one!

4.0 out of 5 stars A History lesson on forgiveness, July 15 2000
This review is from: Wings Of Refuge (Paperback)
Lynn Austin does a great job of blending the lives of Abby, Hannah, and Leah into a story of the power of hate and the even stronger power of forgiveness. She accomplishes this by putting you right into the lives of each of these women through a series of "flashbacks" throughout the story. At first this bothered me (I'm not a "dream sequence fan!") but as the book progressed I realized that it was the best way to tell each story. When you experience the hurt with them, you can also experience the joy and peace that forgiveness brings.
For people interested in history of the Holy Lands, this covers the Roman invasions to present day conflicts. The descriptions of the wars and the prejudice are accurate give insight that we don't get from the news. I learned a lot, after I stopped skimming those parts! They are important to help you know the characters - and how forgivess was hard for them and those they love.
An excellent choice for you who love historial fiction, as well as you romance-only readers. This books shows that everyone needs to be forgiven - and sometimes forgiving ourselves is hardest of all. A second wonderful book by Lynn Austin.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great edition for the windup collector!, July 7 2000
I bought it because my husband collects windup toys and this book comes with two! (surprised him with it - something very difficult to do!) Beautifully illustrated and a cute story - a hit for race fans young and old!
