Review of Amanda Weds A Good Man

AMANDA WEDS A GOOD MAN NAOMI KING
*I received a copy of this book for review purposes. All opinions stated are my honest feelings about the book. I was not compensated for the review. *
I reviewed one other book by this author, Abby Finds Her Calling, which I loved. I was so excited to be able to review another book by her. The reason for this is that Naomi King is a quality writer. She writes with knowledge. There are many books about the Amish, (this I know because every winter it is to Amish romance and Christmas stories I cuddle up with). If you read enough of them you know that finding an author who writes with knowledge about the Amish is difficult.

Amanda Weds A Good Man was everything I hoped it would be ...and more. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the author kept the story very real. Amanda has children. The man she marries, Wyman, also has children. Blending families is a difficult task no matter the circumstances. Yet somehow we think for the Amish it may be different…

Review of On the Isles of Mozambique

On The Isles of Mozambique by Mila A. Ballentine
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow. This book was so interesting!I was expecting a story about travel and the sights of an isle, like what you would find in a travel magazine. This book is so much more. It is filled with heart pounding adventure and a bit of romance. My heart broke in parts of Samira's story. I cried both sad and happy tears through out the book.
I have read several books by this author. Each book was a surprise. The author enjoys writing in different genres. What remains consistent is the author's ability to tell a story. She researches her stories and has a vivid imagination. She writes a perfect mix of reality and fantasy. This book does not disappoint.
