The Interlude by Lin Stepp is the most delightful
contemporary Christian novel and part of the Smokey mountain series. I loved
The Interlude is a book that you do not so much
read as experience. I longed to jump inside its pages. With full descriptions
Lin Stepp paints pictures of both landscape and characters enabling the reader
to ‘walk’ through the novel.
The characters were wonderfully drawn with
realistic flaws and hang ups. They are warm and welcoming, opening their arms
to encompass the reader. We travel alongside them as their companion.
Claire At Edisto by Lin Stepp is the most delightful and heart-warming
Christian tale that will leave you smiling. It is the first book in the Edisto
trilogy and I cannot wait for the next two books.
This is a beautiful family novel
that deals with loss – a sudden loss that leaves a young widow with two
daughters aged five and nine. These young girls are wise beyond their years. “Don’t
cry to say goodbye to Daddy’s grave. He’s not there anymore.” Their faith is
infectious and catching.
There is a refreshing and at
times humorous honesty from the girls. They speak what is on their hearts. Lin
Stepp has perfectly captured their innocence in her portrayal. I adored their
interactions with the world around them.
A Very Austen
Valentine is a
delightful collection of six tales that are woven around Jane Austen’s Pride
And Prejudice and Persuasion. Tales one and six have the characters from
Persuasion. Tales one to five are based around Pride And Prejudice. Pride And
Prejudice is my all time favourite novel so I am very familiar with the
storyline. All the tales were warm and wonderful, and it felt like I was
catching up with old friends. Did I have a favourite story? Absolutely. See if
you have a favourite too as you take a trip down the years with some familiar
I Dream Of You by Robin Helm continues where Pride
And Prejudice ended. The focus is on Elizabeth and Mr Darcy now they are
married. There were some delightful verbal volleys between the two in this
Sir Walter Takes A
Wife by Laura Hile
is a really light hearted match making tale that has perfectly captured Lady
Catherine de Bourgh and Mr Collins. An amusing and fun read.
Nuggets Of Wisdom For
Life’s Journey by
Marvin E Johnson is a powerful Christian book that contains bite size chunks of
The book is set out over seven parts with seven
(six in part two) daily readings to study and digest. Marvin Johnson covers
numerous topics from God’s love to prayer, love, Ten Commandments, Holy Spirit,
Jesus, Christmas, choices and much more.
The readings should get you thinking about God

questions for self-examination.
Marvin Johnson’s style is easily accessible for
all. It feels like nuggets of wisdom from a dear friend rather than daily
