This was my first Shreve book and I very much looked forward to reading it. Because it is written as a series of inteviews it is a different kind of reading experience. You can read my full review here
on my blog.

Yes, I finished North and South
. This book went a lot quicker than Wives and Daughters
. I still think it's going to be hard to get to my other novels if these classics take me so long. I think I just need to make more time for reading.
Anyway, I just got another book to read called Lemon Tart
by Josi Kilpack. It is borrowed from a friend, so I have to bump it up to top priority. I still hope to get to my other books though. In the meantime, I am going to be doing a… Continue

This book sucks. Why? Because it doesn't even scratch the surface of the information you can get from T Harv Eker's Millionaire Mind Course - and you may be able to get the course for free!
I've been to the class and I've read the book and the ONLY way I would recommend the book is if you didn't have access to a class. BUT - I would recommend you get to the closest course to you - Now.…

“It’s a Tuesday morning in February, and I get up as usual, and I stumble into the bathroom to take a shower in the dark. Which is my school-day method because it’s sort of like an extra ten minutes of sleep.
It’s after the shower. That’s when it happens.
It’s when I turn on the bathroom light and wipe the fog off the mirror to comb my hair. It’s what I see in the mirror. It’s what I don’t see.
I look a second time, and then rub at the mirror again.
I’m not… Continue

Absolutely wonderful. The story is told, in part, from the perspective of Friar Tuck. However, it is still a third-person narrative rather than a first-person like Scarlet. Tuck's role in this third novel is much more significant. And the idea that a humble priest can have such an impact on the lives of everyone around him, including the King of England is important.
Tuck picks up right where Scarlet leaves off, with Bran and his followers… Continue

Scarlet is the second in the King Raven trilogy about Robin Hood. The story picks up where Hood leaves off, with Will Scarlet being kept prisoner by Count de Braose. Will is in prison for alleged treason to the crown, and will be hung, unless he tells the count where to find King Raven. While in prison, Will is narrating his story to a young monk named Odo, so parts of the story are from Will's first person perspective and others are a third person… Continue

After his father's death and after his kingdom is overtaken by Norman invaders and the people enslaved, Bran flees and is presumed dead. He takes refuge in the forest near the Welsh border.

This is one of those terrific books that I see myself going back to again and again. Kendra and John Smiley were blessed with a strong-willed son named Aaron. In this book, Kendra shares the experiences of parenting Aaron. What is so terrific is that Aaron, now a successful veterinarian, also writes in this book. He shares his perspective or "closer look" and we get a great glimpse into the mind of a strong-willed child.
I particularly enjoyed… Continue

When this book arrived, my husband grabbed it before I could, so his review follows. -----------------------------------
Synopsis – An Israeli scientific/military team is sent back in time to find proof of the theft of the body of Jesus Christ from the tomb, and thereby discredit the story of the resurrection and in so doing discredit the faith of ‘followers’ in an Israel set in the future.
An author’s first book is always so… Continue
