Rich in Years by Johann Christoph Arnold

Rich in Years, Finding Peace and Purpose in a Long Life is so inspiring, through the use of real-life stories, quotes and information from many people. I love all the different quotes he includes and photos with short quotes at the beginning of each chapter. It is a real treasure chest of encouragement and very thought provoking as I journey through my life. Once quote he included from Macbeth really hit home for me," Out, out, brief candle! Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player That struts and frets his hour upon the stage And then is heard no more: it is a tale Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, Signifying nothing." There are so many other short little tidbits of wonder information included in Mr Arnold's book. I highly recommend it. I received my copy of this book from Handlebar Publishing in exchange for this honest review. All opinions are my own.

Inspiring Story-Miss Brenda and the Loveladies

Miss Brenda and the Loveladies is an inspiring story of a woman that used her experience and resources to turn life around for a group of ladies that no one would give a chance to, not enough themselves. I liked the story and how she wrote about each of the ladies and their experiences but I would have liked more about her own life, how she grew up, her childhood and how she got to the point where she was that gave her the passions she had for these women. There is some of that at the beginning of the book and a short part about how she almost got put in prison but I wanted more. It is a quick read and very interesting, anyone involved in prison or prison ministry would really relate and enjoy this novel. I received this book for free from WaterBrook Press/Blogging for Books for this review. I was not required to write a positive review.

Review: Betrayal

Betrayal by Karin Alvtegen

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book was a great psychological ride through the art of betrayal which was at times creepy but other times thrilling but the end was not what I expected and I was disappointed. But well worth the read for the author's great writing.

Review: Purgatory Ridge

Purgatory Ridge
Purgatory Ridge by William Kent Krueger

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I love the Cork O'Connor series and this one didn't disappoint. Aurora is on fire in this Purgatory Ridge, in more than one way and Cork is right in the middle of political issues and land dispute. But it gets very personal in this mystery. Really enjoyed!
