Summer Reading – Week4 Blog Holiday

Summer Reading – Week4 Blog Holiday

Taking time to read good fiction books. I love summer reading.

At Write!Canada I picked up a few books. Didn’t know what they were going to be like. I was pleasantly surprised.

Julianna by Mary Bentley-Lloydsummer reading


A well-written story of history and romance set in the days of arranged marriages. I couldn’t put the book down and I read at night – so needless to say later night than normal. I got caught up in the action, the faith and the characters. Social issues also dominate the story. A great read.

In Search of Truth by T.L. Wiens

summer reading

What a delight to find this book at Write!Canada. I know the author, a former poster from Under the Cover of Prayer. I couldn’t put this book down either. I finished it tonight as I sat outside in our new gazebo. A tale of a young girl driven to living on the streets through misconception and misunderstanding. I love the way she fights back to regain her love of God and her self-worth. Very interesting study in how the church can empower people rather than glorify God. A tale of truth. Loved it. You can find out more on her website. In Search of Truth.

  1. What fun to find out what you’re reading! You’ve certainly “earned” some leisure time to read and relax.

    I just finished reading Silence and Beauty by Makoto Fujimura – will be sharing the review here later. Reading Anne Graham Lotz’s new book: The Daniel Prayer. So Good!
    I wish you lived nearby – Wouldn’t it be fun to start a book club together!

I love to connect with you.
