My Review

First off, it’s obviously the first thing you notice – just how BEAUTIFUL and PRETTY this Bible is?!!?  ROSE colored gilded pages?!?!  Yeah, that got me for sure!It really is a gorgeous design – I love the cloth over board version (they have it in other covers as well) with the flowers and pink colors. Something else you notice immediately upon opening up this Bible is that it is full color – not just color inserts or just a hint of color here or there, but on every page, and it just all flows and aesthetically is very pleasing.

In our evening church services we’ve been focusing on Esther lately, so I decided to focus a bit on Esther for this review.  Each book has beautiful (do you sense a word I keep using, haha) book introductions.

There are also Character Profiles scattered throughout and articles on relevant issues

Overall, this is a BEAUTIFUL Bible for any woman… and with Mother’s Day approaching, graduations coming up, this would be the perfect gift for that woman or girl in your life.  Don’t forget to enter the giveaway above!

Her Secret by Shelley Shepard Gray Amish Fiction Review

2 Comments

Her Secret (Avon Inspire, March 2017)

A suspenseful tale of a young Amish woman who is forced to move to a new town to escape a threatening stalker

After a stalker went too far, Hannah Hilty and her family had no choice but to leave the bustling Amish community where she grew up. Now she’s getting a fresh start in Hart County, Kentucky…if only she wasn’t too scared to take it. Hannah has become afraid to trust anyone—even Isaac, the friendly Amish man who lives next door. She wonders if she’ll ever return to the trusting, easy-going woman she once was.

For Isaac Troyer, the beautiful girl he teasingly called “The Recluse” confuses him like no other. When he learns of her past, he knows he’s misjudged her. However, he also understands the importance of being grateful for God’s gifts, and wonders if they will ever have anything in common. But as Hannah and Isaac slowly grow closer, they realize that there’s always more to someone than meets the eye.

Just as Hannah is finally settling into her new life, and perhaps finding a new love, more secrets are revealed and tragedy strikes. Now Hannah must decide if she should run again or dare to fight for the future she has found in Hart County.

My Thoughts:

I really enjoy a good mystery, and I also enjoy Amish fiction.  This book, having both of those elements, was a really great read.  I thought Shelley did a great job of there being a mystery and tension while still allowing the peaceful Amish way of life to seep through – it was a really good blending, in my opinion.  It was a little short – I would have preferred there be a bit more character development, but it definitely makes me want to read more of her books!  If you enjoy Christian mystery and Amish fiction, I think there’s a great chance you’ll love it too!

Friday Fun Day: Chirps Chips

Leave a CommentNot chips, but Chirps!  Does that make you say, “Whaaat???”  – it did me when I first heard of the new chip alternative with more protein.  I’ve had various “themes” for Fridays here on the blog (and many many many Fridays with nothing at all), including “Fitness Fridays” and “Fashion Fridays”… but I […]

Do You Brush Your Teeth Enough…

Leave a CommentI will shamefully confess that one of my healthy ambitions this year is to be more diligent about my dental hygiene.  There. I said it.  How pathetic, right?  But truly, I haven’t been always so diligent.  Working from home is one reasons I blame for my sometimes lack of dental diligence.  But really, […]
