"where the last rose blooms" book review

"where the last rose blooms" by ashley clark

this book is the 3rd (last) in the heirloom secret series.

the story goes back and forth from the modern time to time in history with 160 years spanning the lives of two women. having not read the first two in the series, i think i was missing some information of what had happened prior and had a harder time getting into the story.

i liked that mental illness awareness was a part of the story. i don't always see that in books i read and so important.

i ending seemed to just stop and leave a lot to the imagination of how things end. seems like there should be another book in the series, or different ending.

*i received this book for free from net galley in exchange for my review.

God Loves Her book review

 this is a great devotional written by women for women. perfect for getting some of God's word everyday for the busy person. the devotions are personal, relevant, and to the point. i like how well i could relate to so many of the stories.

i received a digital copy of this book from net galley in exchange for my honest review.

a time to bloom book review


"a time to bloom" by lauraine snelling with kiersti gironnis the second book in her 'leah's garden' series. i have been a fan of lauraine snelling's books for many years and this did not disappoint. i love the stories set back in time and it was fun to read about a story settled in my home state of nebraska.

this story is about how delphinium nielsen (knows as 'del') and her sisters are struggling to run a farm and keep a garden alive to survive. they are financially strapped even with 'del' teaching school. she is having to deal with parents who believe their children are better served working on their family farms than going to school.

del and her sisters' brother returns from war with a friend rj. rj believes in the school and wants to help, but there is tension between him and del. i won't give away the rest of the story, but this was fun to read and i look forward to the rest of the series.

i received this book digitally from net galley to read and give my honest review.
