I have never read anything from this author. The book was nice from the first page to the last page. I give this book 5 stars. I would highly recommend this book. This book was mainly about three women named Mary. Mary of Nazareth, Mary of Bethany and Mary Magdalene.

 

Mary of Nazareth, was the mother of Jesus. Mary of Nazareth remained by Jesus' side from His first breath to His last, Mary's loyalty never once wavered.

 

Mary of Bethany, poured perfume on the Lord and wiped his feet with her hair. Mary of Bethany loved to sit quietly and peacefully at Christ’s feet, and become lost in His unfolding of the truth. People could smell her perfume from far away, so they started their journey to Bethany. They had also heard that Jesus was there.

 

Mary Magdalene witnessed Jesus' resurrction and told his disciples. Mary Magdalene walked to the tomb. Mary Magdalene traveled with the followers of Christ. Several of them shared her spirit filled history.

This is the first time I have read a book like this one. I normally don't read this kind of book. I am more into, vampires, werewolves, and witches. I will give the book a four. If you like this type of book, I would recommend it to you. The book is divided into six parts: Part One I Want to Grow Up to Be Spider-man, Part Two Maybe You're Not Cut Out For This, Part Three The Real Right Stuff, Part Four The Door to Space, Part Five Russian Roulette, and Part Six Worth the Risk. The book also had a prologue and an epilogue.

 

Mike served as a Astronaut at NASA from 1996 until the fall of 2014. The first time he left Earth was on March 1, 2002. Which consisted of seven people, five veterans and two rookies. When he joined in 1996 the class consisted of 44 people. At the end, all that was left was 8 people. He left NASA to become a full time professor at Columbia. His main class and most popular was Introduction to Human Space Flight.

 

I really enjoyed looking at the pictures and reading about them. Also what I thought was kinda neat was that he could tweet from space. All the astronauts had nicknames. Mike's nickname was "MASS".

Posted by [email protected] on December 12, 2016 at 2:40 PM Comments comments (0)

I have read some her books. They were good. I give her books a 4. I would recommend this book to all that likes these kinda books. I like the front and back covers of the book.  Home on the Range, is the second book in the Double S Ranch series.

The story is about Nick and his daughters. Nicks brothers left the ranch, so Nick had to run his father's ranch by himself as the ranch manager. Nick and the girls lived in town. Nick's wife, Whitney, left him and their daughters, Cheyenne and Dakota. She was a princess but was not ready to be queen so she left with the court jester or commonly known as a rodeo riding hired hand. 

The principal at school wanted Nick to meet with a therapist, Elsa for the girls. The girls were not doing well in school. Eventually together they try to get along for the girls sake. Elsa will become Cheyenne's tutor. Nick and Elsa finally agree that they are in love and want to be together.

Food 52 A New Way to Dinner

Posted by [email protected] on October 10, 2016 at 2:50 PM Comments comments (0)

This is another new author that I have gotten.  The pictures are beautiful. The front and back covers are pretty also. I would highly recommend this cook book.

The book is done with the seasons: spring, summer, fall, and winter.  Even though the recipes look good, I don't see myself using this book often unless it is the desserts section.

As far as not using the book often is on me and my taste alone, and has nothing to do with the book.

The Angel of Forest Hill

This is going to be another good book. This is gonna be the 10th book by Cindy Woodsmall. I highly recommend this book. I will give it 5 stars.

As the story starts, Rose and her family are at the breakfast table, when the bishop stopped by.  He talked about a family in West Virginia that needed help with the children.  The mom had a baby and lost too much blood during surgery and died. The bishop asked Roses's dad if she could go and help the family with the children. They said yes.  Joel, the kids dad would have to marry Rose or she could not live in the house, so they set up guidelines and got married.

A few years pass and one dad Joel's dad brought an envelope and put it on the table and left.  Come to find out it was annullment papers. Rose goes to see her mom and finally her mama finally breaks down and apolizes for the way she was treated all her life. She tells her to go back to Joel.  It takes a while but they get everything worked out.

Fraying At The Edge

Posted by [email protected] on September 8, 2016 at 9:30 PM Comments comments (0)

I absolutely love this author and her books. I have read nine of her books so far. I would definitely recommend this book and her others. This story is set in Summer Grove, Pa. I give this book 5 stars.

 

The story begins with Lovina on her knees asking God for his help. Her daughter Ariana, that she raised, was switched at birth. Her real daughter was named Skylar. When they found out, each girl went and had to live with the other parents for a year. Ariana and Skylar had to adjust to ways of life that are completely foreign to each young lady.

 

Nicholas is Ariana's real dad, and he wants Ariana to spend one year with him and her biological mother, Brandi Nash. Nicholas convinced the girls to do a one-year trial period in exchange for her father not suing the midwife who made the mistake. Skyler chose a year with her Amish family rather than going to rehab for a drug addiction. Quill, the former Amishman who helps families who want to leave the Amish community.

 

The only person Ariana can contact is Quill Schlabach, former Amish that left the Amish. Quill, is a former Amishman who helps families who want to leave the Amish community.

I have read  three of her books so far, and all were good. I give this book 5 stars. I would highly recommend this book.  I can hardly wait to read all of her books. 

Rebeka's brother, Andy dies in the cave. Her parents, Nell and Festus wants to have a grave marker inside a fenced in area, so that future generations would know their ancestors, so Rebeka decides that she wants to work so that she can buy a stone for her brothers grave. Rebeka gets a job at the Mammoth Cave in Kentucky. The only draw back is that only men can work there. She decides to dress and talk like a man and she goes by the name, Reb.

She has to work with an experienced worker, named Tolley. He shows her the complexities of the cave. They are joined by a student named Devlin. Devlin is what you would call a cartographer. He has come to map the tunnels for a project at school.

The Wolf Road

Posted by [email protected] on June 26, 2016 at 5:10 PM Comments comments (0)

This book was a good read. I give this book 4.50 stars. I would recommend this book.  I will have to get more of her books. This book is about a little girl, Elka, who was given to her grandmother so her parents could go and look for gold. As a young girl, she was found by a man named Trapper.  He teaches her how to live in a post apocalyptic world.

Elk finds out that Trapper is not the man she thought he was, and decided to go north to find her parents. Kreagar Hallet was Trapper's real name is wanted for the murder. When she set to go and find her parents, which she knew was a long shot, she ran into some people, some were nice and some was not so nice.

Elka ran into a women named Penelope. They became friends and they helped each other. Penelope helped her find her parents, but it wasn't the reunion she was hoping for at all.  Her parents had The Tin River Claim. Elka and Penelope went into the cabin and found a lot of dishes and dirt every where. No signs of anyone living there.  The went and searched the outside and found a grave with her daddy's name on it.  They went back inside and uncovered the sheet on the bed and found her mama dead also. She buried her next to her daddy.

The Wurst of Lucky Peach

Posted by [email protected] on June 20, 2016 at 7:00 PM Comments comments (0)

The cook book itself is pretty.  I give it 4 stars. I would recommend this to anyone who likes this kind of cooking.  Myself I don't think I will be cooking very much out of it.

The Wurst of Lucky Peach cook book, covers about 100 different sausages.  It does not have very many recipes. The sausage quest covers: Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia, North America, and South America.

The majority of this cook book is about the survey of sausages around the world. It tells about the authors going around the world on sausage safaris.
