Hope Harbor ~ by Irene Hannon

Hope HarborHope Harbor is the first installment of Irene Hannon’s new series, and it is different to her normal suspense story. For all that, I thoroughly enjoyed the story.

Michael Hunter has come to Hope Harbor hoping for a rest and some answers to some major life questions, including resentment against God. He finds his answers through some surprising people, including the lovely Tracy Campbell who has her own issues.

Both main characters have to move past secret pain in their past lives and allow themselves to love once more. In addition to being an enjoyable romance story, Hope Harbor also reminds us, the readers, that God is ultimately in control of every situation.

Irene has woven into the story-mix several unusual characters who play leading roles and make for a fun but thought-provoking read. Five stars for a great read.

I received this book from Revell Reads in exchange for an honest review. I look forward to reading the next book in the series. You can purchase the book here.

In All Things – A Compilation of Devotions by Authors of Africa

In All Things

Lockdown!

As the very strict lockdown imposed on South Africa was prolonged, I decided to suggest a 13-book project for some of the writers on my Christian Writers of Southern Africa Facebook group.

On the 10th July, eleven authors stepped to one side to work on what was to become an extremely fun, and at times very challenging, project. Over a period of 16 weeks, we tackled and produced a 13-book boxed set of daily devotions, all with a covering theme of Africa.

Journey of the Heart Book Review

Journey of the Heart by DiAnn Mills

Journey of the Heart is a Christian historical fiction story set in the year 1857. DiAnn Mills has done her thorough research into the traditions of the Comanche Indians of that period of time, which makes for interesting reading.

White woman Katie Colter promises her dying father that she will leave her Comanche home where she has grown up and join her aunt and uncle at the white man’s fort. However, when she leaves the Indian family whom she loves, she also leaves Lone Eagle, the warrior she has pledged to marry.

Kaleidoscope

What is a kaleidoscope?

Patsy Clairmont describes a kaleidoscope as “a simple tube of mirrors filled with pebbles or beads”. As we hold it up to the light and peer through the pinhole at the end, we see amazing colours and designs we didn’t know existed.

Patsy likens the book of Proverbs to a spiritual kaleidoscope. As we peer at the seemingly random statements that make up this book, Patsy helps us see “God’s wit and wisdom in a whole new light.” read more
