Reading Wednesday | Daughter of Rome

Have you heard of Priscilla and Aquila? If you’ve read the Book of Acts in the Bible, you’ll recognize their names since they’re a couple who worked with the Apostle Paul. Something notable about these two is that Priscilla is not only listed alongside…

Reading Wednesday | On Wings of Devotion

Ever since I learned that Philip Camden would be one of the main characters in the second book of Roseanna M. White’s Codebreakers series, I couldn’t wait for the book to come out. Readers first met Cam in The Number of Love as a…

Reading Wednesday | Echoes Among the Stones

I finished reading Echoes Among the Stones, Jaime Jo Wright’s latest time-slip novel, last night. Putting words to a review this morning doesn’t feel fair to the impact of the book. It’s the type of story that leaves a reader thinking long after the…

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

Reading Wednesday | Harvest of Rubies

This past summer, I had the privilege of attending the Northwestern Christian Writers Conference in Minneapolis, Minnesota. While I was there, I had the opportunity to meet Tessa Afshar, author of several novels. I had read her book Thief of Corinth and told her…

Reading Wednesday | Stealing Jake

Reading Wednesday | The Spice King

As soon as I saw the cover for the first book in Elizabeth Camden’s new series, I couldn’t wait to read it. A historical novel about spices, botany, and political intrigue, it mixes romance with with world of commercial food, business rivalry, and treason….
