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
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.
A Spiritual Battle Reigns
The Oldest Enemy by Michael J Webb is a complex
Christian novel about the spiritual battle between good and evil. It is a
battle that has been raging since the dawn of time. The Oldest Enemy is grounded in historical facts that Michael J
Webb has blended with his imagination to produce a tale that consumes.
The novel shows there is a very real spiritual
battle as a character made an oath with the Prince of Darkness. Evil cannot be
defeated in our human strength. We must call on the name of Jesus. “Rely upon
our Lord … and you will not fail.”
The novel is covered with the love of God. The
God who whispered names in the Bible still whispers names today. He is the same
yesterday, today and forever.
You Are Loved
The Good For Nothing
Boy by Jocelyn
Soriano is a charming children’s tale just perfect for ages eight and above. It
is a tale to read to your grandchildren or children or to let more confident
readers read to them self.
The story follows a boy with no name and
seemingly no purpose in life, abandoned by his mother. With the help of a
firefly the boy searches for his purpose. He meets many unique characters along
the way, each with their own unique gift. Hearts are opened and lives are
changed as lessons are learnt.
The moral of the story is to be just who God
created you to be. You are unique and you are loved. Bloom just where God has
planted you. He loves you just the way you are.
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.
