A Man's Heart by Lori Copeland

Zondervan Publishing has Provided Me with A Complimentary Copy of this Book

Jules sacrificed marriage to tend to her ailing father. Now Pop is gone, Cruz hates her, she's caring for her deceased friend's children, and her sister is furious that she's been disinherited---all while Jules is struggling to save her father's drought-stricken potato farm. How much can one woman bear? Can she ever win back Cruz's heart?

I have read a lot of Lori Copeland’s books and she is GREAT. I loved this book so much, it was very hard to put down. I laughed and cried in the book but it was worth it. Jules changes her mind twice to marry Cruz Delgado because of her selfishness. But as the book goes on, she goes to college but eventually comes home and realizes that she is in love with Cruz all those years. But, he is just not so sure about allowing his heart to love her. In the meantime, Jules loses her dad, her best friend also. It is a GREAT book, I would definitely suggest this book to everyone.

Seek Me with All Your Heart by Beth Wiseman

Emily Detweiler's family abruptly moved to Colorado after tragedy struck in Ohio. But Emily can't get far enough to escape what happened there.
David Stoltzfus is not happy when his family relocates from Pennsylvania to Colorado. Never mind that they haven't told him why. David struggles not only with this unwelcome move, but also with the fear that a health condition could keep him from living his life in full.

Emily and David each come to terms with a past that follows them, testing their faith and resolve. Will they overcome adversity and step onto the path God has chosen for them?

I loved this book so much, I can’t wait until the next book comes out. Thank you Beth for giving us such a good book. I cried and laughed in it also. The book is about families that have left Ohio and Pennsylvania to start a new life and the struggles they have when they arrive in Canaan, Colorado. It tells of the struggles between Emily Detweiler and David Stolzfus and how they overcome their problems, mentally and physically. It even draws you in as David’s aenti Kati Ann has marriage problems. It is just a GREAT book.

A Year with God by R.P. Nettelhorst

I review books for Book Sneeze.

Make this the year you let God's Word "dwell in you richly"---and marvel at the results! Each entry in this 365-day devotional features Scripture verses in which God speaks, accompanied by insights and applications to enhance your understanding. Learn what God says about hope and fear; perseverance and quitting; companionship and isolation; and more!

This is a very good Daily Devotional. From the moment you read the first devotional to the last, you can feel God’s presence, it is like God is speaking directly to you. This devotional has Scripture verses and then the explanation of the verses in our everyday life. What I like is that there is a Table of Contents and it has subjects on Hope and Fear, Love and Hate, Loyalty and Betrayal, etc. So, that way, if you are going through a rough time, you can read on that particular subject. I love this book and I would suggest everyone have this devotional. It is VERY GOOD!!

A Secret Identity by Gayle Roper

I am a reviewer for Harvest House Publishers.

Cara Bentley is raised by her grandfather to appreciate family. When she discovers—quite by accident—that he was adopted, her whole perspective changes. If he wasn’t a Bentley, who was he? If she isn’t a Bentley, who is she? She determines to find her real family. Ending up in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, she takes a room at the Zook family farm. When she seeks the help of attorney Todd Reasoner, the search for the truth begins in earnest. But as mysterious accidents begin to happen, Cara suspects her attempt to find out the truth is not welcome-and neither is she.

This story is very good. It keeps your interest from the start. You will fall in love with Cara Bentley, as I did. Cara Bentley is full of life and I think that is GREAT. She goes in search of her grandfather’s real family after he passes away and in the mean time, she finds love. Her brother is not in favor of her going to search for this part of their roots but she does it anyway, she is so independent. I thoroughly loved this book. I will suggest this book to everyone.
