Review: White Fur

White Fur White Fur by Jardine Libaire
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I see elements of strong writing and story telling. Lyrical at times. I enjoyed the concept and found aspects of Elle's story refreshing but I am not sure how many would give up a fortune just like that. 75% way in I lost momentum though I finished. I think it was when it became choppy and so many characters weaving through. I am grateful for the free copy but I struggled to get through.

Review: Finding Gideon

Finding Gideon Finding Gideon by Eric Jerome Dickey
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Eric Jerome Dickey is a master at his trade. I tried to fall in love with Finding Gideon but... not sure what happened. Lots of characters and twists and turns. It was an effort to read. I would still read more of his work.

Write Now Literary is pleased to announce Journey To Faith, a Christian Drama Play by Elizabeth G. Honaker, April 10-14, 2017
  • ISBN-10: 1530416477
  • ISBN-13: 978-1530416479
Elizabeth Golibart Honaker hails from Sparta, Tennessee, where she teaches writing support and English at Motlow Community College. Her undergraduate degree is in Liberal Arts, and her first MA is in Theology. This has given her the breadth and scope to write over fifteen full-length passion plays in the last twenty years – seven of which are in print with others being prepared for publication – as well as dozens of shorter scripts, short stories, and poems on Christian topics. Her first historical fiction novel, Come Before Winter, was published in 2014. In that same year, she completed her second MA in English and Creative Writing (Fiction) at Southern New Hampshire University.
When she is not writing or tutoring, she spends her time devising new home projects for Allen, her husband of 45 years. She also enjoys communicating with her two wonderful grown children and buying (and making) trinkets for her four lively grandchildren. She is passionate about sharing Christ, missional activities, and her local church. She also loves gardening, sewing, piano playing, and Star Trek as time permits.
Luke's Gospel conveys the great compassion of Jesus the Christ in two special stories: the faith of the Centurion in Chapter 7, and the faith of the woman who was healed of a lingering condition in Chapter 8. This play blends the two stories, taking the audience into the revelation of God's love to a sinful world.

Brand New Release from Michelle Stimpson and Casandra McLaughlin

                                        When these two women get together, you are guaranteed a Must-Read


Deacon Brown's Daughters


 Back in the day, green-eyed Stanley David Brown was a ladies’ man. Now he’s God’s man, and he’s got a lot of cleaning up to do. But where does an absentee father start in the quest to get to know the children he abandoned? Will they give him a chance to make up for lost time?  
Like so many absentee fathers he thinks that as long as their mothers are taking care of them, they survived, they're fine, the past is the past. They should just move on. Stanley has missed out on his chance with his son. But his three daughters, Yolanda, Kim, and Sabrina, are in for a surprise when their long lost father comes strolling back into their lives. 
Stanley’s presence is met with three different responses, not to mention the reactions from his children’s mothers. Stanley is doing his best to win the girls’ hearts, but how many times can one man apologize before giving up again? Should he be held accountable for not being there when he didn't know how to be there? Should they have reached out to him? Should their mother's try harder to track him down? Is there an age limit to end parental responsibility? Is non payment of child support a reason to keep your child away from their father?


 This story is near and dear to our hearts because it hits close to home. Growing up my dad didn't live in the house with me so I can certainly relate to the girls. My parents got a divorce when I was young and although my dad was granted visitation it just still wasn't enough. Our visit were few and far between, we were just going through the motions. I was still disconnected from him emotionally and he thought things were fine. It wasn't until I got pregnant with my own daughter that I was able to share with him how I felt. He was shocked and honestly didn't know how to connect with me emotionally. I'm so glad that he took full responsibility and  was willing to work on our relationship. I'm so thankful that God restored our relationship and we're closer than ever.  Absentee fathers seem to be what's trending now, and unfortunately some people don't ever get the opportunity to get to know their fathers. It's our prayer that as you read Deacon Brown's Daughters that you'll search yourself and try to mend those broken relationships. Join this journey of life, love, and forgiveness as Stanley and his daughters walk through touch territory in a storyline that rings true for so many people. Grow with Stanley and his daughters as they all grow to know the Best Father ever!

Review: The Marriage Pact

The Marriage Pact The Marriage Pact by Michelle Richmond
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I can easily say I have never read a story like The Marriage Pact. That's big because I read a lot. The Marriage Pact is like the Stepford Wives taken to the umpteenth power. What a twisty over-the-top read. I really couldn't begin to imagine what was happening. It was weirdly good but a bit much at times. I really didn't know what to expect and while I can't say I completely understand all the experiences Alice and Jake faced, I stayed up late reading trying to weave through this convoluted tale until the very end.

Review: The Idea of You

The Idea of You The Idea of You by Amanda Prowse
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Idea of You has a slow build. With each page comes another layer into Lucy's story. You learn how the past can impact a future. I cried a couple of times watching her navigate through being a new wife and stepmother while battling her own demons. Forgiveness isn't easy, especially forgiving oneself. There was a lot to be learned about truly loving yourself. Many go through life without ever achieving contentment which is why I enjoyed reading about Lucy's journey. Heartwarming and a satisfying read. I would definitely read more from this author.
