Gratitude Month: Thanksgiving Book Reviews

“One thing I admire about Linda Weaver Clarke’s writing is that she desires to put the reader right there with her characters by describing the setting so well that you are swept away. From page one Linda eloquently describes in interesting details the surroundings and the feelings of her characters. I love when I begin reading a book and am taken in! The relationships and the communication between the characters is top notch.” –Melanie Ski, Jubilee Reviews


Book or Ebook: Desert Intrigue: The Adventures of John and Julia Evans
Review: Romance, Mystery, and Regional History Collaborate to Create a Satisfying, Intriguing Story! It was difficult to put this one down. I cared about the characters, I cared about their ranch, and I was brainstorming right along with this delightful family, figuring out how to either remove the curse or solve the mystery that threatened to destroy their way of life. There are children flirting with romance, relational complexities, and a wedding in the works that just won’t seem to come together. The writing is clear and lively, never calling attention to itself or getting in the way of the story. The touches of humor and inclusion of regional history tie it all together to make a satisfying story all the more fascinating. Highly recommended! –Steve Miller, Author


Ebook: Writing Your Family Legacy
Review: It’s important to teach our children their heritage. Each of us has a story from our ancestors or even our own story to tell. It’s up to us to write these experiences down. Make your family legacy something your children will be proud of. “Many books are written about genealogy and how-to and give you templates, but this one is worth the time and effort to read and pass on to others. This one is a gem.” –Jimmy, Reviewer

Ebook: Reflections of the Heart
Review: Reflections of the Heart has 13 chapters of inspirational writings such as: The secret of Happiness, Laughter is the Best Medicine, Parenthood – A Great Responsibility, and Music Soothes the Soul. “The nuggets of wisdom are right-on, the quotes inspirational, and some of the stories moved me to tears. Goodness, what was the mysterious (and dreadful!) ailment that afflicted George as a boy? And my heart goes out to the author having had to bear a body cast at the tender age of 13... I now have a good idea of the kind of person the author is. You are a grateful, loving, sensitive, honest, courageous (not easy going to college at age 48!!!), giving woman – one I would love to meet. Reflections of the Heart reflects a beautiful heart and I was blessed by reading it.” –Evelyn Uslar-Pietri, Author

Print book please
I'm torn between the Mystery/ Romance book because that type really apeals to me and then there is the investigating your family history because I've been doing family genealogy for probably 30 years and I'm real facinated with that.

Mary Preston said...

I would love to read DESERT INTRIGUE thank you. It does look very interesting.

Writing Your Family Legacy is the one I would love to win. I do the family history and always find something new to learn when I read books and articles. The word "emotion" is true when writing about the family.
Appreciate the giveaway.
