Book Review | The Brightest of Dreams

The Brightest of Dreams by Susan Anne Mason is the third book in her Canadian Crossings series. I haven’t read the first two, but the back copy of The Brightest of Dreams captured my interest, so I did something usual: I read Book Three…

Book Review | The Runaway Bride

Have you ever stayed up late to finish a book? As a mom of young children, I can’t do that as much any more. However, my newborn happened to have a fussy night just as I was starting The Runaway Bride by Jody Hedlund….

Reading Wednesday | When Silence Sings

I’ll be honest, historical novel, When Silence Sings, by Sarah Loudin Thomas, wasn’t what I expected. Perhaps I should have read the back copy more clearly. However, once I was into the story, it sucked me right in.

Reading Wednesday | The Lady and the Lionheart
