Don’t Tell Teacher by Suzy K Quinn

Utterly Brilliant

Don’t Tell Teacher by Suzy K Quinn is a totally gripping contemporary psychological read that I just could not put down. I read it with heart racing to the conclusion. It truly was marvelous.

Suzy K Quinn created an eclectic mix of characters, all unique with their individual personalities. The action is seen from various points of view as it alternates between present day and recent past.

How well do we know people? Do we really know what goes on behind closed doors? Can you spot the truth from the lies? These are all questions raised by the novel.

The reader enters the world of social workers and troubled children. The latter need lots of help and the former are over loaded with paperwork. We see the effect of this on the staff. For some, all paperwork must be completed. For others, it is children first. “I’d rather help children than tick boxes.” These troubled children took up residence in my heart.

She Walks In Love by MaryLu Tyndale

More Than We Can See

She Walks In Love by MaryLu Tyndale is a Christian medieval adventure with the love of God at its heart. It is the second book in the Protectors of The Spear series but can be read as a stand-alone.

This is a novel that will consume you from the start as you journey with the characters through the novel. It is a good old fashioned fight against evil.

Life is a spiritual battle. There is so much more than we can see, hear and touch. The forces of darkness rage against the light but the light still shines in the darkness. The darkness will not reign as God has already defeated it. Some battles cannot be won by pure physical strength alone. We need to put on the armor of God, stand firm and remember His truths. There are “entities that could not be defeated by sword or arrow, but only by the Word of God and the name of Jesus.” Prayer is our most powerful weapon. “Lord if you’re there…” Jesus walks alongside us and is only a prayer away at all times.
