Book Review & a Look Back | A Chilling look at what may well – be our future… | The Liberation by Marissa Shrock

Can you hear the screams from there? Can you!!!

Marissa Shrock has finally given us the sequel to her stellar debut; The First Principle!

Do NOT miss this sequel!

Both books are a MUST-READ!

Marissa Shrock is an amazingly talented author!

Her words grab hold of you and absolutely will not let go until you reach the very end of the story! She illustrates the journey of her characters with such skill, you feel as if you ARE Vivica! (or rather… Fredrica)

I am so very excited to see this long-awaited sequel release. I devoured the first book of the series and have been patiently (not so much) waiting for the journey to continue!

The author provided me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review, but I will be purchasing it anyway! Yes, It’s that good!

More about The Liberation:

How far would you go in the fight for your country’s freedom when it’s crumbling from within?

In the near future, all seventeen-year-old Vivica Wilkins wants is a normal life. Time with her boyfriend, her computer, sports. But after becoming a fugitive, the only place she’ll be safe is among the enemies of the government. She has no choice but to join the Emancipation Warriors, the only hope for the United Regions of North America to return to the country it once was.

When her mother is taken as a political prisoner and slated for execution, the Emancipation Warriors change Vivica’s appearance, identity—everything. With her vaunted computer hacking skills, she’s able to infiltrate the government with a job that gives the Warriors a foothold in their fight for freedom and the chance to save her mother.

But soon Vivica is discovered, and her only chance of escape is to become allies with one of her greatest enemies. Together they must follow the government’s trail of evil to its highest levels, where they learn not only the future of their country is at stake, but the entire world.

From the cities of the United Regions of North America to the high-tech corridors of Asia, The Liberation is an international thriller with an all-too-possible scenario that will grab you by the throat and refuse to let go.

GOD BLESS!

HAPPY READING!

A Chilling look at what may well – be our future…

The First Principle is certainly what I would call a MUST READ! And I applaud Kregel Publishing for having the courage to stand up with women everywhere over a tremendously important issue!

This story hits home pretty hard for me as I was strongly encouraged by several family members to rid myself of a problem I was clearly not ready to handle – before my son was born.

Now, I was not a teenager and I am so very blessed I do not live in the same society outlined between these pages!

Because if I did, I would probably not have my precious babies – either one of them. And that would be a tragedy!

 

Now onto my review…

WOW! Just WOW! ~ From the front cover to the words on the back cover, this is just an exceptional book!

The frightening part is that many people could read this book and fail to see just what the problems are with how things work in the present government system…

However, I feel that Marissa Shrock does an excellent job of communicating how different a person’s outlook can be when they themself are in the hot seat.

Vivica’s ideals are a tiny bit shaky from the very beginning – she accepts what is – mostly because she has been told to accept it her entire life, but there is a niggling doubt. And it is that doubt that brings to light just how heinous the system is when she finds herself in trouble!

From there, the story just keeps spiraling deeper and deeper. Do not be fooled – this story is not just about teen pregnancy. There is a web of deceit and subterfuge laced throughout the pages that would impress even the most astute mystery reader!

And the underlying premise – salvation and redemption!

WOW! Just WOW!

I wish I could afford to buy and distribute copies of this book to every abortion clinic in the world. If even one mother changed her mind about what she is about to do after reading it, it would be worth EVERY penny because THERE IS NO PRICE you can put on a HUMAN LIFE!

I am SOOOO excited to discover that Miss Schrock is already busy on a sequel!

About The First Principle via Kregel:

The First Principle: A Novel by Marissa Shrock

In the not-too-distant future, the United Regions of America has formed. Governors hold territories instead of states, and while Washington, DC, is gone, the government has more control than ever before. For fifteen-year-old Vivica Wilkins, the daughter of a governor, this is life as usual. High school seems pretty much the same–until one day, that controlling power steps right through the door during study hall.

When Vivica speaks out to defend her pregnant friend against the harsh treatment of Population Management Officer Marina Ward, she has no idea she’s sowing the seeds of a revolution in her own life. But it isn’t long before she discovers her own illegal pregnancy. Now she has to decide whether to get the mandatory abortion–or follow her heart, try to keep the baby, and possibly ruin her mother’s chances at becoming president.

A rebel group called the Emancipation Warriors, who are fighting to restore freedoms once held unalienable, offer her asylum. Can Vivica trust these rebels to help her or will they bring everything crashing down around her? Accepting their help may come with consequences she isn’t ready to face.

Marissa Shrock’s debut novel crafts a chilling story of what may be to come if we allow the economic and moral crises currently facing our country to change the foundations on which we built our independence–and of the difference one person can make when they choose to trust God’s lead.

Want to WIN a copy of Maggie Brendan’s NEW book – The Trouble With Patience?

 

Who is excited about this NEW series!

I know I am!

Before we get to how you can WIN… here’s a bit about the book from Baker Publishing:

 

Patience Cavanaugh has lost hope in romance. The man she yearned to marry is dead and her dreams are gone with him. Now she is consumed with restoring a dilapidated boardinghouse in order to support herself.

Despite Patience’s desire for solitude, Jedediah Jones, the local marshal with a reputation for hanging criminals, becomes an ever-looming part of her life. It seems like such a simple arrangement: She needs someone with a strong back to help her fix up the boardinghouse. He needs a dependable source of food for himself and his prisoners. But as she gets to know this “hanging lawman,” Patience finds there is far more to him than meets the eye–and it could destroy their tenuous relationship forever.

With a keen eye for historical detail and a deft hand at romantic tension, Maggie Brendan invites you to a Montana gold rush boomtown, where vices and virtues are on full display and love is lying in wait.

Amy is JUST THAT FANTASTIC a writer!

First a bit more about Miles From Nowhere:

 

Chelsea Morris has always been responsible, dependable, and focused on her dreams of fashion design, a dream that will officially begin come fall, when she leaves for college in New York City. As she settles into her role as the lead designer for the local summer stock theater group, she decides to make the most of her last summer in North Carolina. But with her best friend Emily busy working late and spending time with Zander, and tensions with Chelsea’s boyfriend, Todd, running high, the summer she envisioned seems to be falling flat.

Then Dylan joins the latest summer production. There’s something about the college boy that makes her feel free and alive, and soon she’s broken up with Todd, and is sneaking out late to meet Dylan at parties and breaking rules at the playhouse. But before she knows it, her exciting nights are interfering with her job, her role on the play, as well as her relationship with Emily and with her parents. Worse, Chelsea finds herself feeling more and more estranged from God.

As the summer becomes wilder than she ever dreamed, Chelsea must decide if her heart is leading her in the right direction after all.

(CLOSED)Who wants to win a copy of Rachel Muller’s NEW release – Maggie’s Mission?

 

4 days ago, my good friend Rachel Muller released her sequel to
“Letters From Grace” and today I am offering you an opportunity to win an eBook copy of the book – “Maggie’s Mission”!

A bit more about the book:

 

A buried vow and a broken past meet face to face on enemy territory…

Lieutenant Maggie Johnson has overcome many obstacles in her life, including her parents’ disapproval of her enlistment in the Army Nurse Corps and the sudden death of her GI boyfriend, Danny Russo. A sudden blow that forced her to leave behind a promise once made. But Germany introduces more hurdles that hinder her life. Like Army nurse lieutenant, Peggy Blizzard—a woman as cold as her name.

While trying to avoid a war breaking out within her own barracks, Maggie pushes through Germany’s harsh winter, and Peggy’s cold shoulder, and aims to do her job—saving lives. But when tragedy strikes the field hospital, it’s Maggie’s life that needs saving instead.
Maggie’s harrowing rescue will haunt her for months to come when a ruggedly handsome soldier comes to her aid and resembles the face of a man she once loved . . . a man who is dead.

Is war playing mind games with Maggie, or is she facing the ghosts of her past?

(CLOSED) Who wants to win a book!

 

I was gifted a copy of this book at the recent ACFW conference! What a GREAT perk! I was not required to review it but I love to review books so I’m going to!

First I will say; this book is nothing like any other I have ever read… ever!

WOW!

I thought I was reading about a much earlier time period but party lines and going after the vote is so much more familiar to me than most of the historicals I’ve picked up recently… (Yes, it also makes me feel old to admit that.)

Even having a gift with languages, I don’t think I could have kept up with this story so easily if Lauraine Snelling were not such a great story-teller!

What a wonderful idea for a story!

And what a wonderful author Lauraine Snelling is!

No other author I know of pulls off making the story about more than just the main characters quite so well (well maybe one other but I won’t name-bomb Lauraine’s review – if you wanna know, send me a message and I’ll tell you)

Suffice to say, this is a book worth reading and I know I’m excited for #2!

How about you?

Beloved Author Lauraine Snelling Returns Again to Her Popular Red River Valley Setting

Trygve Knutson is devoted to his family and his community. With his job on the construction crew, he is helping to build a future for the North Dakota town of Blessing. Though he loves his home, he sometimes dreams of other horizons–especially since meeting Miriam Hastings.

Miriam is in Blessing to get practical training to become an accredited nurse. She’s been promised a position in the Chicago women’s hospital that will enable her to support her siblings and her ailing mother. Although eager to return to her family, Miriam is surprised to find how much she enjoys the small town of Blessing. And her growing attachment to Trygve soon has her questioning a future she always considered set in stone.

When a family emergency calls Miriam home sooner than planned, will she find a way to return? If not, will it mean losing Trygve–and her chance at love–for good?

(CLOSED) A Review of “A Love Undone” by Cindy Woodsmall! | And a GIVEAWAY

I do believe Cindy Woodsmall has another hit on her hands!

WOW!

I started reading A Love Undone and before I knew it I was 3 chapters in!

The story captured me completely, which is precisely why I love Cindy’s writing style.

I will say this… when you begin reading, you never see tragedy coming.

If you read the blurb on the back of the book, you know something is coming – you may not know what or when but you know something… is coming.

But you will never see it coming!

You start reading and you’re immediately pulled in to the story and when tragedy does strike, you are completely unprepared for it.

I’m telling you, it will hit you like a ton of bricks.

And that is only one thing that makes this such a well-written book!

You get to experience the shock with the characters – you get to feel the same pain right along with them. You can’t close yourself off to it because you are completely and totally shocked… just like they are.

The characters are the next best thing about this story.

There is always such depth to Cindy’s characters, you truly feel as if you know them each personally – even secondary characters. You will love them, you’ll feel their pain and their joy, and you’ll find yourself in their shoes – trying to live with the choices they’ve made.

I believe that is one of the things that makes Cindy Woodsmall such an excellent writer. She puts depth and detail into her stories without going on and on. She excels at using the story itself to show you who the characters are and what they’re going through.

DO NOT MISS THIS BOOK!

Keep reading for details on the giveaway…

Here is that back cover blurb I was talking about…

At nineteen years old, Old Order Amish Jolene Keim was on the brink of happily-ever-after when everything changed, stealing the future she expected and burdening her with an unbearable decision. For the next ten years, Jolene throws herself into family life—and then she meets Andy Fisher. The horse trainer and father to a sweet nine year-old challenges her and holds up a mirror to issues Jolene has been unwilling to face.

Andy is cautious about his deepening friendship with Jolene, but he believes she knows the truth about him – that he is a grass widower. As a man whose wife has abandoned him six years past, he is unable to divorce or remarry according to the Amish ways. Andy has wrestled with God concerning his reality, and he had found peace with the solitary future facing him…until he met Jolene.

As Andy and Jolene find themselves confronted by difficult choices, will they trust in God’s guidance—or will the allure of their deepening friendship only lead to further temptation?

I reviewed Hidden yesterday but here’s a bit more about Hidden anyway:

HIDDEN by Vannetta Chapman
Home is where our story begins …

DANA JACOBS would rather forget the night of tragedy and violence that marred her childhood. She is now supervisor in charge of the Department of Homeland Security in Taos, New Mexico. Her team is prepared to handle any threat—biological, chemical, conventional, cyber, even nuclear. BENJAMIN MARSHALL is newly assigned to Dana’s office. Straight from a six year military deployment, he is not what Dana wants or needs.

Ben knows God has a reason for putting him in this place at this time—to help Dana. When a local school is threatened, they open a case which leads them on a chase through the Enchanted Circle and Carson National Forest, pursuing a man filled with a bitterness Dana can understand. But her anger is different. It’s justified, it remains hidden inside, and it hurts no one.

Can Dana face her own mortality? And when she does, can she truly understand what it means to forgive and to be forgiven?

 

THANK YOU!

God Bless!

“A White Christmas in Webster County” by Laura V. Hilton releases September 15th! | Advance Review AND Giveaway! (CLOSED)

 

A White Christmas in Webster County

OK… WOW!

There should be a warning label on this book:

WARNING: DO NOT PICK UP THIS BOOK IF YOU HAVE ANYTHING IMPORTANT TO DO!

Seriously… if you pick it up, you won’t be able to put it down unless someone makes you.

Laura V. Hilton is putting out some positively amazing books lately! Not to say that her previous books weren’t great but to be honest, I didn’t get pulled into them like I did with A White Christmas in Webster County and The Snow Globe – I was blessed to review an advanced copy of this wonderful book which is scheduled for release in November of this year.

A White Christmas in Webster County is actually scheduled for release September 15th so this is a bit of an early look at it too!

 

The story is wonderful and original to boot. This is definitely not a story you see over and over, and it certainly isn’t a plot you would ever expect to see in an Amish Fiction story but it works, it really works!

Wonderful to realize that, while their faith may differ somewhat from ours and they certainly live their lives more plain, the Amish are not so different as we might think! I know I related to Mercy in a lot of ways.

I don’t know about you but I can’t wait to see what’s next from Laura!

Don’t miss a single book!

Here is more about “A White Christmas in Webster County” from Whitaker House:

A Mother’s Helper
Mercy Lapp is ready for a fresh start. Having lost her beloved fiancé in a fishing accident during his rumschpringe, she escapes the painful memories by moving from her community in Shipshewana, Indiana, to Seymour, Missouri, where she takes a job as a mother’s helper. She isn’t exactly shy, but she’s hesitant to get involved with the youth in the community because she isn’t going to stay. She especially doesn’t want a new romance.

An Adventurous Hero
Abner Hilty is excited to see his twin brother, Abram, for the first time in years. The two fled their hometown of Shipshewana when their witness of a murder put their lives in danger, Abner heading to Montana to work on a ranch and hunt big game, Abram meeting a girl in Missouri, marrying, and settling down there. Abner decides to spend the holidays with them in Seymour, but he has every intention of returning to Montana, maybe even for good.

An Unexpected Snowstorm
At a chance encounter, Abner is immediately drawn to Mercy, and even more so when he realizes that they’ve met before, back in Shipshewana. Initially alarmed, Mercy soon warms to his attentions, even though she keeps him at arm’s length. She also branches out and begins attending youth functions, forming new friendships that are solidified during a rare snowstorm. Just when Mercy and Abner are beginning to think about a long-term relationship, Mercy gets a phone call that changes everything. The information would have been welcome months ago, but now that she knows Abner, she’s torn, and she will have to do some serious soul-searching to decide how to act on it.

Review AND Giveaway! (CLOSED) | What Your Heart Needs for the Hard Days by Holley Gerth

What Your Heart Needs For the Hard DaysFirst a few words from Revell about this delightful little book:

We all have days that make us want to pull the covers back over our heads and eat a dozen cupcakes.

Thankfully, Jesus said we don’t “live on bread alone”–that includes cupcakes–“but on every word that comes from the mouth of God” (Matt. 4:4). What we really need is truth.

If you’re tired, discouraged, or feel a little empty inside, my prayer is that by the end of our time together, you’ll be refreshed and nourished in a way that will sustain you through whatever the future may hold.

Remember, you’re not alone, my friend.

In this uplifting book, Holley Gerth invites you to be filled with the strength, peace, and joy that come from God’s promises. Each of the 52 devotions based on the Psalms will help you remember that God is good and we’re all in this together.

Holley Gerth is a bestselling writer, certified life coach, and speaker. She loves connecting with the hearts of women through her popular blog and books like You’re Already Amazing, You’re Made for a God-Sized Dream, Opening the Door to Your God-Sized Dream, and You’re Going to Be Okay. She’s also cofounder of (in)courage and a partner with DaySpring. Holley lives with her husband, Mark, in the South. Learn more at http://www.holleygerth.com.

This book is the perfect companion to Holley’s book You’re Going to Be Okay.

 

I LOVE THIS BOOK!

All you have to do is LOOK at it and it will cheer you up!

Yes I am a sucker for a cute little book that has a coffee cup on the cover… but that is only a part of this book’s charm!

Just wait til you get a look inside! Holley Gerth is a genius! She has put together a beautiful, endearing, uplifting book and anyone – absolutely anyone can find something inside that will apply to their life!

Yes it is set up so that you can read and study one concept each week for 52 weeks of the year but I don’t think many of you will want to stop reading once you get started!

It is such a comfort to find good, Biblical advice, especially in this crazy, upside down world we live in.

And I absolutely love the little sections provided at the end of each chapter for notes, the bible verses and the wonderful prompts. Not only does Holley delve deep into what the Bible tells us Jesus wants for us – she draws us in and interacts with us while doing it.

Bravo Holley!

I am compelled to go out and find more of Holley’s wonderful books and I hope you will feel the same!

Why oh why haven’t I seen these fantastic little books before!

This is a book that everyone needs to have handy for those everyday challenges that make us feel worn out and defeated – along with their personal Bible of course.

Author Spotlight: Jamie Carie |And… Announcing the WINNER of her special giveaway!

Last week I reviewed Jamie Carie’s Forgotten Castles series for you and this week I am doing a very special interview and announcing the winner of the contest I announced with the third review.

So read on:

 

A bit about Jamie via her WEBSITE:

About » Biography

A Preacher’s Daughter

As a preacher’s daughter, Jamie traveled with her dad—to and from Bible studies across Indiana—where they talked theology – creation and the fall, God’s love, the earthly walk compared to the spiritual walk, and how we are born for more than what we can see or touch.

The highlight of those nights was stopping at a truck stop in the middle of the night where her dad would spend a little of the offering basket on two slices of pie and a couple of Cokes. Nothing ever felt so special as a middle of the night slice of pie with her dad. And nothing could stop the writing pouring out of her.

As Jamie grew up, she discovered her heart was filled with songs and poetry. During high school she wrote lyrics for her brother’s band. After college, Jamie married, had two sons and decided to stay home with them. During this time, she wrote skits, poems, plays and short stories for schools and churches.
When her eldest son turned five she dove into the world of novels. She’d read romance novels for years, but couldn’t relate to the flawless, saintly heroines in Christian romance novels. So she decided to write her own.

Snow Angel was born on a frosty night in an old farmhouse in Fishers, Indiana, where the cold floor gave plenty of motivation for the snow scene. Jamie loves to write late at night when the house is quiet and the darkness seems alive. Elizabeth and Noah had been playacting in her head for a long time, so the story went fast.

Ten years later Snow Angel was published and won the ForeWord magazine Romance Book of the Year winner, was a National “Best Books 2007” Awards winner, and a 2008 RITA Awards® Best First Book finalist. It was the beginning of her dream career. Her newest novel, Rush to the Altar, is her first contemporary – a warm, funny and poignant love story about a widow woman who falls in love with an NBA player.

Jamie and her husband Tony have been married for twenty-five years and live in Indiana with their three sons, a giant dog named Leo and their newest baby, a half Siamese/half Snowshoe cat named Luna.

If she could only say one thing to her readers it would be, “Live the dreams God has destined you for!”

 

 

And now for my interview.

 

Is there any particular inspiration behind the Forgotten Castles series for you?

 

This was my first series so I was initially excited to have the longer story arc to work with. A typical novel is around 90,000 words and while I find that comfortable it was challenging and thrilling to create a world/characters for more like 270,000 words. My other main inspiration for the series was Alexandria, the heroine. I wanted an adventuress who solves a mystery and then I had the idea of I’s. She travels to three countries that all start with I (Ireland, Iceland and Italy) to find her parents. I didn’t realize the challenge of setting a book in Iceland when I made that decision! Lol! The language and names had me banging my head against the keyboard on more than one occasion but I learned a lot writing that series. I fell in love with Ireland and Italy and have since traveled to Ireland and Scotland. (Italy is next!)  I was so blessed to find an Irish historian while writing book one of the series, The Guardian Duke, who checked my work for accuracy. My husband and I were able to meet him when we visited Killyleagh last September (for our 25th wedding anniversary) and I was able to actually tour the private castle, Killyleagh Castle, that is on the cover! I can’t tell you how amazed, blessed and surreal it felt to stand at the top of the castle and see the beautiful village of Killyleagh below after researching it for Alexandria and Gabriel whirlwind adventure around Ireland.

Are any of the characters modeled after real people you know? Family/ friends?

 

I never admit to that – lol! No, seriously, I think all of my characters are bits and pieces of myself, family and friends…and even other characters I’ve read about or watched in movies or on TV. It’s a wonderful mystery to me how a character starts out as a vague idea and then becomes living and breathing on the page with personality qualities and thoughts and feelings I didn’t know they would have. That is one of the glorious moments of creating a story.

image

 

 

What made this story so different from your others – this is the first of your stories that you’ve stretched into a series…

 

I think instead of that “historical” feel I was pulled toward solving a mystery, going on an adventure and, of course, true love. Love, what it looks like and the depths of it, is a theme that I will always explore in my writing. God’s love has no end and it is reflected in us and through us, his creation, so I will never reach the end of what it can look like. I love the thought of that!

image

 

 

Will we see more books in the series – perhaps focusing on other characters we’ve become attached to?

 

I’m not sure if I will ever revisit these characters or not but I consider it a huge compliment when readers ask for that. That means you fell in love with my characters like I did and a writer can’t ask for more!

IMG_2930

 

 

Or do you already have another series planned/ in the works/ pitched? If yes, Would you tell us a little about it?

 

I am now working on another three book series called the Land of Everyoung. It’s about three sisters who, when their father passes away, are sent on individual journeys that he has arranged for them in his will and set in the fantasy world of Everyoung. Think Lord of the Rings but with a lot less fighting scenes and more romance. It won’t be a continuous series so it can be read out of order. I hope to get book one, The King’s Chatelaine, out before the end of this year and as always, I’m very excited about what I’m currently writing and what is swirling in my mind for books two and three. Check my website www.jamiecarie.com and my Facebook here and here for more to come and contests coming up!

 

THANK YOU Jamie for taking the time to chat with us a bit! I don’t know about everyone else but I always enjoy reading about the story behind the story!

 

NOW for the announcement you’ve been waiting for! (Don’t go away until you’ve read all the way to the bottom of the post though – LOTS of interesting info below the announcement)

Who has won their choice of a book from Jamie’s Forgotten Castles series?

The winner is:

Alyssa Faith Washburn

I will be contacting you shortly with info about how you can claim your book!

And now for some more about Jamie Carie and her wonderful books!

 

Jamie’s most recent release is A Highlander for Christmas – A special Christmas novella! Read on for more information.

image

Lady Juliet Lindsay has made a colossal mistake. In the face of her parents’ rejection she realizes that a single stolen kiss could cost her everything. Sent to her aunt and uncle’s home in Scotland, she finds something in the rugged highland beauty that steals her heart…and a highland man, who seems her other half.

Iain MacLeon, chieftain of the clan MacLeon, has one thing on his mind in a time where politics are like a tempest brewing—sheep. He loves his people and his land but he didn’t know he also needed a woman to share the load. And then he sees her…the flame-haired Englishwoman who steals his heart and holds it hostage against all his beliefs and all he holds dear. But how will he persuade his clan to love her as he does?

 

And don’t miss the Forgotten Castles series!

The Forgotten Castles Series is a three book series that follows amateur sleuth, Lady Alexandria Featherstone, as she travels to Ireland (book one – The Guardian Duke), Iceland (book two – The Forgiven Duke), and Italy (book three – A Duke’s Promise) in search of her missing parents. Full of adventure, romance and mystery the three books sweep readers across Europe in pursuit of a famed invention. Along the way, Alexandria develops feelings for her guardian – the brooding Duke of St. Easton, who has recently suffered a physical blow that is changing his life. Gabriel thinks of his new charge as an unwanted complication in a time when his life is coming apart at the seams but soon comes to cherish her letters and admire her faith. Their journey will be fraught with danger as they come ever closer to God’s plan for their lives.

 

“Someday I will meet you and see your face.”

Gabriel, the Duke of St. Easton, is ordered by the king to take guardianship over Lady Alexandria Featherstone whose parents are presumed dead after failing to return from a high profile treasure hunt. But the heart-driven Alexandria ignores this royal reassignment. Believing her parents are still alive, she travels to faraway lands to follow clues that may lead to their whereabouts.
Gabriel, pressured by the king’s ulterior motives, pursues Alexandria across windswept England and the rolling green hills of Ireland but is always one step behind.
When they do meet, the search for earthly treasure begins to pale in comparison to what God has planned for both of them.

 

 

Tethered by her impulsive promise to marry Lord John Lemon—the path of least resistance—Alexandria Featherstone sets off from Ireland to Iceland in search of her parents with a leaden heart. Her glimpse of her guardian, the Duke of St. Easton—the path less traveled by—on Dublin’s shore still haunts her. Will he come after her? Will he drag her back to London, quelling her mission to rescue her treasure-seeking parents, or might he decide to throw caution to the wind and choose Foy Pour Devoir: “Faith for Duty,” the St. Easton motto. The Featherstone motto Valens et Volens: “Willing and Able” beats in her heart and thrums through her veins. She will find her parents and find their love, no matter the cost.

The powerful and wing-clipped Duke of St. Easton has never known the challenge that has become his life since hearing his ward’s name. Alexandria Featherstone will be the life of him or the death of him. Only time and God’s plan will reveal just how much this man can endure for the prize of love.

 

From the Land of Fire and Ice back to England’s shores, Alexandria Featherstone finds herself the new Duchess of St. Easton. Her husband has promised a wedding trip to take them to the place where her imperiled parents were last seen — Italy and the marble caves of Carrara — but a powerful Italian duke plots against Alex and her treasure-hunting parents.

Hoping to save them, Alex and Gabriel travel to Italy by balloon. Fraught with danger on all sides and pressured by Gabriel’s affliction to the breaking point, they must learn to work and fight together. The mysterious key is within their grasp, but they have yet to recognize it. This journey will require steadfast faith in God and each other — a risk that will win them everything they want or lose them everything they have.

This is the Last Stop in the Forgotten Castles series | “A Duke’s Promise” by Jamie Carie | AND A GIVEAWAY! (CLOSED)

A Duke's Promise

An ending has never been so bittersweet.

I’m not at all certain there are enough words to describe the emotions this powerful story has invoked within me!

In my review of book 2, I said that I hope they NEVER make it into a movie because they’ll just ruin it and I still feel that way. But I am amazed at the irony of that statement because there is a note about a certain part of the book only being shown properly on-screen. I simply can not explain it – except to say that it was an odd insight.

I also mentioned that I was quite happy about there was another book because it meant the adventure had not come to a close but now that it has, it is indeed bittersweet.

I love the way the story has ended and I am amazed at how Jamie Carie was able to leave the story with such a feeling of possibility. Even though this story has come to an end, there is such a feeling of what is still to come.

The third book in Jamie Carie’s Forgotten Castles series is a shining beacon of what God’s love is capable of accomplishing and even though the path of our heroes is not completely free of obstacles, their steps are clearly being led by God’s own hand.

The third book is certainly the most serious of the three but it is done so very well, the story simply flows from the second and I applaud Jamie’s talent once again.

Like me, you may not wish for the series to end, but you certainly do not want to miss this book. And don’t be surprised if you find your heart a little broken as you turn the last pages.

At least Jamie Carie has written stories of other adventures we can enjoy!

5star

Here is what B&H says about A Duke’s Promise:

Award-winning writer Jamie Caries concludes her most epic storyline with a wonderful twist in A Duke’s Promise, the final Forgotten Castles novel.

From the Land of Fire and Ice back to England’s shores, Alexandria Featherstone finds herself the new Duchess of St. Easton. Her husband has promised a wedding trip to take them to the place where her imperiled parents were last seen — Italy and the marble caves of Carrara — but a powerful Italian duke plots against Alex and her treasure-hunting parents.

Hoping to save them, Alex and Gabriel travel to Italy by balloon. Fraught with danger on all sides and pressured by Gabriel’s affliction to the breaking point, they must learn to work and fight together. The mysterious key is within their grasp, but they have yet to recognize it. This journey will require steadfast faith in God and each other — a risk that will win them everything they want or lose them everything they have.

My review of “Huckleberry Hill” | Book 1 in A FANTASTIC NEW series from Jennifer Beckstrand!

Huckleberry Hill by Jennifer BeckstrandThe quote on the cover says it all. Jennifer Beckstrand is a delightful voice in the storm of tragedy that typically occupies the pages of Amish fiction novels.

“Huckleberry Hill” is full of unexpected twists and laugh-out-loud mishaps. The characters are delightful and most definitely one-of-a-kind. The plot is well thought out and intriguing.

I won’t spoil it for you but watch for a
running joke about pie… PRICELESS!

I would never have expected such a delightfully fun story about a pair of matchmaking grandparents.

WHO COULD!

But it is a delightfully fun adventure where the main characters get into all sorts of trouble. I want to say Lia, Moses and Rachel are my favorites but the truth is, Anna and Felty clearly steal the show.

They make me miss my grandfather so much – they’re that real.

Jennifer Beckstrand is an amazingly talented writer who brings you right into the story with her descriptions of the characters and their surroundings!

THANK YOU Jennifer for sharing this exceptional story with us! I’ve just received Huckleberry Summer and my review will appear shortly since I’m certain I won’t be able to put it down! The third book – Huckleberry Christmas is slotted for release in October.

Be sure to check back here SOON for a special interview with Jennifer Beckstrand AND for an opportunity to WIN your own copy of “Huckleberry Summer”!

More from Kensington about Huckleberry Hill:

With their thirteen children grown, Anna and Felty Helmuth are ready for their next adventure. That means trying their hands at matchmaking–because what could be more fun than igniting love when it’s right–and undoing mismatches when they’re wrong. Now Huckleberry Hill just might turn out to be the most romantic spot in Wisconsin. . .

 

Lia Shetler is resigned to being a spinster. She’s too tall and sturdy to ever be marriageable–so says her overbearing dat. Instead, she’s helping her pretty, spoiled sister Rachel secure the perfect husband–the Helmuths’ grandson, Moses Zimmerman. But the more Lia sees of Moses’ gently teasing ways and quiet understanding, the more she wishes he could be hers alone. . .

 

Moses knew his grandparents couldn’t resist trying to find him a wife. But he never expected it would be the graceful, sensible Lia–a woman who is tall enough to look him in the eye, and honest enough to make him question a promise holding him to his past. Now both will need the kind of miracles only faith and courage can bring to finally reach for a lifetime of happiness. . .
