The Memory House by Rachel Hauck

Twin Souls Sixty Years Apart

The Memory House by Rachel Hauck is the most delightful dual timeline novel set in 1953 and present day. Rachel Hauck has done it again – and created a wonderful novel that will ignite the reader’s heart and soul.

The characters are warm and welcoming and realistic with their fears and failures. They are easy to identify with.

Prayer is important. “He suspected Mom’s prayers had a hand in this.” Prayer is powerful and how wonderful to think that our prayers can influence lives for the better.

Sometimes we have a day that defines us. There is a ‘then’ and a ‘now’. This is the case for the two lead females. Their stories run parallel but sixty years apart. Their crucial decisions are similar but different.

Memories are at the heart of the novel. Memories make us who we are. They may keep us warm at night or they may fill us with terror. Memories may trap us in the past but we need to face them and move forwards.

The Love Letter by Rachel Hauck

The Love Letter by Rachel Hauck is the most delightful Christian contemporary and historical novel that enthrals from the start. This is a book that is just crying out to be read. You do not want to miss it.

The Writing Desk by Rachel Hauck

Do Not Worry Or Be Afraid

The Writing Desk by Rachel Hauck is the most wonderful contemporary and historical Christian romance. It is a perfect read, one that will warm your heart and soul. It leaves you feeling good and with a smile on your face as you celebrate God’s goodness and faithfulness.

The novel explores how God desires a relationship with us all. Even when we do not know Him or do not acknowledge Him, He is present in our lives, speaking into them. It’s just that we fail to recognise His voice.

Going to church does not necessarily mean knowing God. “She attended church only to be seen by people, not God.” Church in the early twentieth century (and sometimes today) could be seen as a status symbol. It was never God’s intention for this to be so. The church is the people – people who live for God. “He kept his faith quiet and simple.” By viewing one’s example of living out a Christian life, others will be drawn to Jesus.

A Royal Christmas Wedding by Rachel Hauck

Listening To God

royalA Royal Christmas Wedding by Rachel Hauck is a contemporary Christian romance and the fourth book in the Royal Wedding series. It can however be read as a stand-alone.

I always adore Rachel Hauck’s novels, knowing they will be truly delightful and have the heart of God. This Royal Wedding series has been wonderful. A Royal Christmas Wedding is the stuff of fairytales. It is not airy fairy though as it has God at the centre. God is recognised to be the Lord of our lives. We need to put Him first. Our heavenly Father always wants the best for us.

There is the dilemma of which father to listen to – our earthly father? Or our heavenly One? When they are at odds we need to trust our heavenly Father to work not only in our lives but also in the life of our earthly father.
