Looking for a book that will challenge you and make you feel uncomfortable? I wasn’t but it turned out to be exactly what I needed. A few months ago, I won a contest on Anne Jackson’s blog to be one of several people to receive a copy of “Scared: A Novel on the Edge of the World” by Tom Davis. I hadn’t heard of Mr. Davis but I thought I’d give his novel a chance. Scared is a story about a photojournalist named Stuart Daniels. His life has hit rock bottom after witnessing and photographing the brutality in the African Congo. Stuart is sent on one last mission to redeem his career to a small African country that is in the middle of the AIDS crisis. He visits a village of young orphans and widows. In particular, he meets a little girl named Adanna. She has been forced to grow up quickly after her father left and her mother died. She is the sole caregiver for her younger siblings, Precious and Abu. Stuart is challenged to bring real hope and restoration to Africa through Adanna’s story. “Now, in a dark place that’s a world away from home, Stuart will once again confront the harsh reality of a suffering people in a forgotten land. And as a chance encounter becomes divine providence, two very different people will find their lives forever changed.” I was in tears over this book. It is such an emotional read as the author describes the harsh reality of a community that is “ravaged by tragedy and disease”. My eyes were opened to a part of our world I’d never even considered. Because of it being such a tragic yet redemptive story, I’d recommend not reading this book in public unless you have tissues near by! I cannot wait until Mr. Davis releases his next book in this series: “Priceless: A Novel On The Edge Of The World” in June of 2010.

Kresley Cole delights readers once again with yet another amazing Lore tale, Pleasure of A Dark Prince. Lucia the Huntress is a fierce Valkyrie who has experienced love as a young girl but all was not as it seemed. She barely survives to enter into her immortality and becomes a fierce Valkyrie along with her sisters. She paid a high price to survive. She’s confronted with Garreth, the womanizing highland warrior Prince reluctant to take his older brother’s place as king of the Lykae. But he definitely recognizes Lucia as his mate. And with the Ascencion nigh, a kind of apocalyptic battle of immortals, can Lucia afford to give into her passion for Garreth when she has so much to lose? She’s a runner, evading Garrett and leading him on a merry chase which royally pisses him off. He finally catches up to her in the Amazon – let the party begin. Hot, hot and hotter. Temps outside equal temps in the bedroom. Garreth is determined to keep his mate safe and help her in her quest to kill an evil god. But of course, he wants something too, using blackmail and whatever means at hand to get what he wants. And with Lucia keeping secrets from him, Garreth is not a happy mate. Their journey will lead them to an unimaginable culmination with so much suspense along the way, I couldn’t put the book down! These two characters practically smolder off the page. Kresley Cole has written another winner! Garreth and Lucia’s story has been worth the wait. She has built a rich cast of characters, teasing us with Garreth and Lucia's story in her first book. As a bonus, we get catch up with Lachlain (Garreth’s brother and the rightful Lykae king) and Emma (A Hunger Like No Other) and Bowen and Mariketa (Wicked Deeds On A Winter’s Night). Mariketa has to be one of my favorites, she’s too funny and cute in her avarice when it comes to business. And what an epilogue! Yes, definitely – more of that please!

Each novel is set in the west in the 1800s. All are seeking a new life and a new place to call home. Each author has put their spin on the perfect Christmas for any bride. I have discovered a few new authors to me. I could never pick the best story because they are all fantastic. I give The Westward Christmas Brides Collection 5 stars, great job ladies. If you enjoy historical fiction I highly recommend The Westward Christmas Brides Collection to you. A Christmas Prayer by Wanda E. Brunstetter April 15, 1850 three covered wagons set out to travel the wild west from Independence, Missouri to the land of opportunity, California. All travelers are strangers from different walks of life. Cynthia Cooper travels with her mother Mabel and fiancée Walter.

James Lassen and his family do everything in their power to help the Jenners. They give and care for others like the Samaritan in the Bible. Not expecting anything in return but giving their all. This is a great story of compassion. I really enjoyed this story and found the author did an outstanding job. The Reluctant Runaway by Melanie Dobson Omaha, Nebraska December 1889 Lavinia Kathryn Starr is on the run from her evil step brother Patrick. As she boards a train for New York City Patrick closes in on her. She is on the run again this time on a train to parts unknown.

They were headed to Huxley to join family and friends for Christmas when the weather stops them in their tracks. Charlotte Crandall and her elderly mother Ms Vivian, barrister Benjamin Cottingham and his 6 year old granddaughter Melissa and driver Daniel Becker like Molly all had big plans. Molly OBrien was looking to start a new life only to find herself on a rowdy ride. Samuel Harden finds instant attraction to the spunky redheaded spitfire he rescues. The passengers of the stagecoach end up on a deserted ranch owned by Samuel and find their best Christmas yet. This was a great novel about grief turned to joy. I really related to the characters. Forging a Family by Vickie McDonough Advent, Texas 1890 Beth Ruskin, is a agent with the Childrens Aid Society, delivering kids to their new families.

Christmas, Maybe by Janet Spaeth For as long as Suzette Longmont can remember she has dreamed of the wild untamed nature of paradise, riding horseback with her hair blowing out behind her.

They face tragedy, sickness and are caught in the cross fires of a war that should be over. As they fight for their lives Juliets atrocity toward Jacob softens into something far more likeable, maybe even a fondness or love as the wagon train travels. This is a great story showing how nothing is impossible with God. By far this story will pull at your heartstrings like none of the others. I enjoyed my fist book by Jennifer Rogers Spinola very much. Christmas Bounty by MaryLu Tyndal Santa Barbara, California 1855 Caroline Moreau is a widowed mother of two, trying to keep her husbands dreams alive. But barely keeping Moreau Winery alive. As her and her children leave market they come across a public hanging in town square.

Caroline is in need of some one to protect her, the children and vineyard. Could Dante become the man of her dreams and save them? You will have to read this fantastic book to find out. Caroline is filled with a unbreakable faith that will inspire you. This was a glorious novel. I want to give a high-five to the authors Wanda E. Brunstetter, Susan Page Davis, Melanie Dobson, Cathy Liggett, Vickie McDonough, Olivia Newport, Janet Spaeth, Jennifer Rogers Spinola, and Mary Lu Tyndall and publisher Barbour for bringing compelling Christian books that are entertaining and give hope to the reader with stories of faith.

Passion is the third book in the fallen series. This book takes us through some of Luce's past lives. The only negative thought I had of this book is "girl why do you keep running from Daniel". Although finding out about her past lives is interesting, it also makes you even more ready for the action.
