Unveiling the Kings of Israel by David Down {Review}

    Purchase Answers in Genesis’ most popular resources at great sale prices— shop today! In the beginning of February, I told you about an awesome book from Answers in Genesis that made me really want to get this one too! If you missed that review, make sure to check back and read about Unwrapping the Pharaohs (review) as well. Many years now, I have slowly been collecting books for our studies. After all, I have known that I wanted to teach Classical Christian Education since my AppleBlossom was just a thought and now our studies for Ancient Egypt are finally here and we use these resources daily. At first, I found myself confused as I was just going on memory and thought that indeed Unwrapping the Pharaohs and Unveiling the Kings of Israel were, in fact, one book until I started writing out my lists and then I was shocked to discover. . .

A Curious Beginning (Veronica Speedwell) by Deanna Raybourn {Review}

  First in a new historical mystery series about intrepid Victorian England adventurer Veronica Speedwell Following my reviews you know that I spend most of my reading hours in the realm of Christian Historical Fiction; however, there are a few authors that are in the general fiction market that I gladly and eagerly jump into their novels. Therefore, I realize this recommendation is not for everyone who reads my normal reviews. With that said, A Curious Beginning is an amazing book and a wonderful start to a new series with an author divined with a creative mind Deanna Raybourn. I absolutely loved the Lady Julia Grey series that I started reading on recommendation of my author friend Michelle Moran and I devoured every additional story. Deanna does have another series set in the 1920s that I have not entered into yet. Stepping back into 1887, Veronica is an incredible character.. . .

After a Fashion (A Class of Their Own) by Jen Turano {Review}

The first in the new ‘A Class of Their Own’ series If you read my post about reasons to read an e-novella then you know how I first discovered Jen Turano was through a freebie that I stumbled upon and I knew immediately that I had found a new favorite author. Since then I have been delighted with all the stories in the Ladies of Distinction series and now I’m finding myself to have the same opinion of the A Class of Their Own series. Through a fluke I actually was able to read In Good Company (my review), the second in the Class of Their Own series before I finished After a Fashion and while they can easily stand on their own as independent reads, they do build the story with friend (and friendly!) characters. In November 2012, I was given the Christian Fiction Blog Alliance Best Tour Review. . .
