“All in Good Time” is a very well written book about life in Denver, Colorado in the late 1800’s. The author paints a great picture of the times and makes you feel like you are there. This book shows us that no matter what has happened in our past we only need to ask God for forgiveness and He will see us to a better future. This book shows us that sometimes our plans are not what He has in mind and we must always listen to Him. I received a complimentary copy of this book for this review from Tyndale House Publishers.

This book is a new take on the fairytale “Cinderella”. The author brings the “Cinderella” plot a new life as she incorporates God and faith into the story and also makes it into a story that adults will want to read and can relate to. This book is labeled as young adult but I think all adults will enjoy this book as it will take them on a new adventure with a beloved fairytale from childhood. This book shows us that when we have God in our lives and trust in him then all things are possible. I received a complimentary copy of this book to review from www.booksneeze.com.

“A Tendering in the Storm” picks up the story in Washington Territory. Emma and Christian have settled in and made a home for themselves away from the new colony. They have two children and things seem to be going better for them. But then tragedy strikes and Emma finds herself a widow with a third child on the way. When her husband’s family tries to take her sons away from her she marries Jack Giesy a distant cousin of Christian’s. She thought that they could have a good marriage but the true Jack starts showing through. Emma soon realizes that she needs the protection of the colony and leaves her husband.
“A Mending at the Edge” takes place in the new territory of Aurora. Emma lives there with her four children and is estranged from her husband. She knows she made a mistake and is trying to make up for her bad decisions. Even though the colony has accepted her and her family she still is searching for a purpose in the colony. She faces many tough days but she is a strong willed woman who keeps pushing through.
Emma Wagner Giesy was true pioneer woman. She left her home and started out on a new journey with the man she loved. The two of them kept their eyes on God and trusted to see them through the dark times they encountered. If you are a fan of true pioneer stories then you will enjoy this trilogy. I received this book for free from Blogging for Books for this review. Click here to read Chapter 1 of "A Clearing in the Wild".

This was another great book by Dorothy Love. This is a story of a young woman who does not want to be a burden to anyone and is determined to stand on her own two feet even when everything is against her. This story also shows us that when we are faced with hard decisions and we turn to God and rely on Him, He will see us through.
