Very young, wet behind the ears but ready to serve the Lord, Calvin Harper arrives at his first parish in the small town of Victory as their new priest. Being a bit nervous and shy he has no idea what to expect. Morning Prayer is always attended by four quirky, elderly ladies that break him in quickly: Avis, Esther Rose, Mary, and Ruby. From their first awkward meeting he never dreamed the impact these women would have on his life, especially Ruby. She takes the new priest gently under her wing, encouraging, guiding, and teaching him not only about dealing with all the different personalities in his new church, but also about life. They bond as the story of Calvin navigating the perils of his new ministry unfolds. He grows with Rubys help by learning to face each challenge through Gods eyes, not the circumstances he faces. Although Calvin only serves at the church for three years, he grows very close to Ruby and her husband. When he is assigned to a new church in Boston, Ruby keeps in touch my writing him. These letters are very personal in nature, sharing about her childhood, young adulthood, courtship, and marriage with her beloved husband, Whit. This is where you get a glimpse the World War 2 era through the eyes of the young people of that time. My favorites were the love letters she exchanged with the two soldiers in her life. The poignancy and sensitivity with which the author writes these letters, it is hard to believe they were not real. Her correspondences also reveal the heartaches and hardships faced by senior citizen as they age. This book was a blessing in several ways. I found it a sheer pleasure to read. Also, Rubys character was such a blessing in her godly, peacemaking attitude in dealing with others, and her great faith and courage in dealing with her own trials. But one of the most surprising ways it touched me was totally unexpected. Some of the women in the story faced the death of their cherished husbands. Their struggles and emotions in comforted me as I had just lost my precious husband a month earlier. This book is beautifully written and touches you on every emotional level you can conceive. Definitely one you want to read! I received this book free from Abingdon Press. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

Present for my college-age grandson who just got into poetry, and what better start than Collins, a Poet Laureate? The book contains lots of new poems as well as selections from other Collins books. A perfect choice.

Faith O'Connor is in love with the bad boy Collin McGuire. Collin wants nothing to do with Faith b/c of her faith in God, but he longs to be apart of a loving family again. His solution is Faith's younger and more beautiful sister Charity. But can Collin continue to deny his feelings for Faith? And can Faith put her love for Collin aside to stay true to God? In this book Mrs. Lessman has captured the truth about what it is like for a young Christian girl (at any age or time period I might add) to draw a line in the sand and stay pure for God and her future husband (in this day and age the line is almost non existent) instead of throwing your morals to the wind and just doing what feels good at the time. No harm done, right? Wrong and Mrs. Lessmen shows that following God's path and not our own leads us to happier marriages and lives. Not that our lives wont be harder by doing so but just much better in the long run. Anything worth having takes a lot of effort. That message needs to be out there, and I believe Mrs. Lessmen has done it with this book. I would recommend this book to the young and young at heart!! Please read.

No one can plot a fantasy novel like Suzanne Collins. Amazing! Each turning pages will suck you in, like a black hole!

I didn't realize this was a trilogy at first, but once I did, I had to have all three. This is the 2nd book in the trilogy of the Harper Bride and let me tell you , it is AMAZING! The story line, the details and the overall vision I got while reading this series was complete amazement. It's exciting, scary, funny and sad at times. Definitely worth the price I paid!
