Lately I have been on a reading kick and am not so sure why. The weather around here has been great and my "to do" list is never ending.
It would have to start with my confession that I rented New Moon one weekend when Ryan was on the road. There was not much else that night at Red Box and I thought I would see what all the hoopla was about. I got hooked and read the next 2 books, by Stephanie Meyers, in 2 1/2 weeks, all 1,462 pages! Not the best writing and I don’t even like vampires. I just had to know how Bella and Edward ended.
I should have gotten a clue while at Hastings I couldn’t find Breaking Dawn. Asked the nice girl working where I could find it and she directed me to the TEEN section.
But ah… I just finished up a wonderful book by the Christian author Francine Rivers entitled Redeeming Love. A novel based on the book of Hosea.
If you have not read this book I highly recommend reading it as soon as possible. It’s helpful to read the book of Hosea first. As it will only open your heart and mind further in understanding this woman God talks about in the Bible.
I can’t wait to start on her new book Her Mothers Hope.
The first in an epic two-book saga by beloved author Francine Rivers, this sweeping story explores the complicated relationships between mothers and daughters over several generations. Near the turn of the 20th century, fiery Marta leaves Switzerland determined to find life on her own terms. Her journey takes her through Europe and finally lands her with children and husband in tow in the central valley of California. Marta's experiences convince her that only the strong survive. Hildie, Marta's oldest daughter, has a heart to serve others, and her calling as a nurse gives her independence, if not the respect of her mother. Amid the drama of WWII, Hildie marries and begins a family of her own. She wants her daughter never to doubt her love-but the challenges of life conspire against her vow. Each woman is forced to confront her faulty but well-meaning desire to help her daughter find her God-given place in the world.
So if you are in need of a few good summer reads I highly recommend Redeeming Love and Her Mothers Hope.
I am giving away a copy of Redeeming Love today because I know that this book will touch your heart and soul.

The Teen section????.....nothing wrong with that. I've been there myself. I have never read or heard of Francine Rivers, but it sounds like something I would really enjoy and then pass to my daughter and then daughter-in-law. They both love Christian books, but I don't believe they have mentioned this author. Thanks for the chance to win.
Congrat's to Debbi for winning this fabulous read. And thanks to all those who entered.
