  • Living Half Free on Nov. 17, 2012

    I have just finished reading Living Half Free by Haley Whitehall. I was taken back in time to the the dreadful days of slavery. I felt mixed emotions reading this book. I felt anger, terror, and dread, as I read of the sadistic abuse. I cried, and rejoiced,along with Zachariah as he struggles along. Was extremely happy for him when he found love with the Cherokee woman, Lillian. Haley Whitehall has done an excellent job of bringing this story to life.
  • Grits and Glory on Dec. 12, 2012

    Just finished reading Grits and Glory (Plantation Shadows Book 1) by Haley Whitehall, couldn't wait to turn the pages to see what was going to happen to Peter Warren next. This is an interesting book about the civil war, from the soldier's viewpoint. My heartbeat quickened as I found I could almost hear the hidden door of the secret room in Jack's house and the noise it made when slid back. I could feel Peter's fear has he hid in this dark room. Haley Whitehall has done a fantastic job of taking me back into the civil war and I feel as if I have truly experienced it myself. This book has made me understand even more what my gg-grandfathers went through as they left home as young boys / men to fight this war. I found myself with tears in my eyes at several points. Can't wait for the next book in this series to see what Peter decides to do. Will he take the captain up on his offer and stay alive, or will he die with honor.

  • Who Tells the Moon to Sleep? on Dec. 20, 2012
    (no rating)
    Just read the heartbreaking picture/story Who Tells the Moon to Sleep? by Haley Whitehall . It will be a fantastic, tender-hearted book to share with my grandchildren about the days of slavery, and the children then. What the life was like for the slave children. Tess questions why her and Mama are told when to do everything, even play or eat or sleep, but other things in life aren't. She comes to realize that they can never completely be owned as no one, not even Master Embry can own their heart or mind. There are beautiful illustrations by Bill Pilgrim to go along with story.
  • Scar Jewelry on Dec. 26, 2012

    In Scar Jewelry by Sue Perry, twins Deirdre and Langston who are very different in their personalities, set about to learn more about their mother who is in a coma. Their mother has done such a good job of covering up her past that they have no idea who she truly is or was . The way Heater/Heather has handled changing and hiding her identity is different in this book from anything I have ever read before. At first no-one wants to answer their questions, but eventually they do receive help from some of the Mother's life-long friends. Each new answer seems to lead to even more questions. With each twin having their own ideas about what they find and how it should be handled. With the twins even finding secrets about themselves. A real page turner to see what each new twist or turn will hold. Makes one wonder how well do we know our parents/loved ones? I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

  • Unshackled and Free: True Stories of Forgiveness on Dec. 30, 2012

    As Christians we are instructed to forgive others. "For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins." Matthew 6:14-15 NIV Sometimes this is hard to do, or I find it so at times. Unshackled and Free: True Stories of Forgiveness compiled by CJ & Shelley Hitz is a delightful collection of inspirational stories about forgiveness. Read others stories and how they have dealt with forgiving who has wronged them. There are some heartbreaking stories included here, that they still managed to find it in their heart to forgive. I highly recommend this eBook to anyone that has a hard time with forgiveness. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

  • Road Salt (Wings from Ashes, 2) on June 01, 2013

    I just finished reading the book Road Salt by Linda Nelson, I would recommend this book to ALL young readers. I learned a lot about a subject I have only heard about so far which is people using Bath Salts to get high. Linda makes the reader feel that they are with these four teenagers as they are experiencing this road trip and all the things that happen along the way. This is a great book which will make the reader think. How well do you know your friends? Do you or your friends think you need to get high to have fun? I hope that this book reaches all young and old alike that thing getting high on bath salt (or anything) is the answer. I hope it reaches all that are thinking about giving it or any drug a try. Drugs are such an epidemic in today's world with so many young and old alike loosing their lives needlessly.

  • Work From Home for Low Income Families on Nov. 18, 2013

    I received a copy of the Ebook Work From Home for Low Income Families by Lia Burres This is a great book for anyone wanting or needing to get started working online from home. It is full of information on ways that you can work from home. You’ll learn how to sell online, advertise, and create your own website all FREE! It has LOTS of links to get you on your way and she has only added things that HAVE actually worked for her which I think is a big PLUS as she has weeded out the bad to only give you what will really pay off. As she has said herself the book isn't very well organized but I can see where that would be hard to do with all the information and links that she has in there. I have personally learned a lot from this book. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review, rather it be good or bad.
