In this book we see how different people react to tragedies in their lives. Genevieve drew closer to God and trusted Him to see her through while Tristan distanced himself from God. We also see how two people’s secrets can damage a relationship but that if they put their faith in God He will show them the truth. This is the first book in the Gulf Coast Chronicles and it will draw you in from the beginning as it paints a very detailed picture of what life was like during that time. This is a book full of romance, history, and intrigue that will keep you turning the pages. I received a complimentary copy of this book to review from Revell.

This book will keep you turning the pages and make you wonder what will happen next. This book is filled with intrigue and vividly describes the Victorian times in London. This book continues Julia’s spiritual awakening as well. In the first book we learn that the man she thought was her father was an atheist. Edward pushed her to discover the truth about God and in this book we see how she finally accepts God and turns to Him to see her through. I highly recommend reading “Born of Persuasion” first to get Julia’s entire story. “Mark of Distinction” will leave you hanging for the conclusion of the Price of Privilege trilogy. I received a complimentary copy of this book to review from Tyndale House Publishers.

This is another wonderful book by Siri Mitchell. It will pull you into the roaring twenties and paint a picture of what life was like during prohibition. She gives very detailed descriptions of the speakeasies that popped up during that time along with corruption going on in Boston. This book will make you chuckle at some of the situations Ellis finds herself in and you will feel for her as she always feels like a letdown to her family. I received a complimentary copy of this book to review from Bethany House Publishers.

This was an amazing book that you will not be able to put down. It is a fast paced thriller that will keep you pulled in and turning the pages and wondering what will happen next. In this book we see how we all must turn everything over to God and realize that we are not God. He is the one in power but if we turn to Him and trust in Him He will give us the strength to do what we did not think we could do and to move forward in our lives. I received a complimentary copy of this book to review from BookLook.

This is another amazing book by Tracie Peterson that sweeps you away. The characters in this book face many challenges and feelings that we do in today’s world. Marty was so overcome by grief from losing her first husband that she turned away from God. She thinks that God is not a very loving God to take away those that love and worship Him. Marty and Jake both fear falling in love and facing rejection from someone they care deeply about. We can all put ourselves in their shoes and learn something from this book and remember to turn towards God in our times of need. I received a complimentary copy of this book to review from Bethany House Publishers.

This is a story that tests the faith of Tillie and Keondric. Tillie feels that she is unworthy of forgiveness from God so she has never been able to fully forgive herself for her past sins. We see how once she is able to forgive herself God leads her to the great love she has been hoping for. This is the third book in the Edge of Freedom series and it is a very well written book that will sweep you into this devious plot. I highly recommend reading “No Safe Harbor” and “Dark Road Home” to get the complete story from the beginning. I received a complimentary copy of this book to review from Bethany House Publishers through NetGalley.
