Her Firefighter Hero by Leigh Bale

My review today is on the Love Inspired, Her Firefighter Hero. This is first book in the Men of Wildfire Series. I don't think I have ever read any of Leigh's books before but I enjoyed this one. It was well written and heart warming. I'm sure you will enjoy too.

 Widow Megan Rocklin owns a restaurant and is struggling to care for the business, pay bills, and care for her children. Her husband had been killed in a wildfire less than a year ago and picking up the pieces isn't all that easy. She does know one thing though, she will never get involved with another firefighter.

Fire Management Officer Jared Marshall has just moved to Minoa, Nevada. He has been devastated by a divorce. His ex-wife not only had remarried but is now expecting when she had refused to have children with him. He had no desire to put himself in line to be hurt again until he met the beautiful widow and her adorable children.

A journey of two brokenhearted souls controlled by the fear of loving again. God has a plan for these two, a plan for a hope and a future. God has a plan for you too. Give Him your heart and watch Him turn your life around.

Without Rival by Lisa Bevere

My review today is on the non-fiction novel, Without Rival. I don't know about you but I find Lisa a great minister to the women of faith. I'm sure she brings many women to the Lord as well. She is an awesome warrior of God. This book is well written, will change your heart, and help you become the woman God made you to be.

This book will show you how to embrace you own identity. It will reveal some of the things in your past that have become a hindrance to you in your walk with God. This book will show you that you are unique and that God loves you in your uniqueness. We no longer look to others as rivals but see that we have an enemy that is trying to bogged you down through offenses and rivalries.

This inspirational book will turn your life around. It's set up for a Bible Study with questions at the end of each chapter. There is also a video that goes with it. Check out this wonderful book and become a unique woman of God.

Anna's Crossing by Suzanne Woods Fisher

My review today is on the Historical Amish Romance, Anna"s Crossing. This book starts in April of 1737 and has to do with the horrors and trials of crossing the ocean to the New World. The book is well written, much researched, and full of faith. I'm so thankful that I wasn't forced to endure such hardships. I thought the book was well done with the very severe conditions. It is handled well and I'm sure you are going love this book.

Anna Koneg was forced to leave Germany and her precious grandparents with her Amish community. She had no desire to leave everything she loved only to spend months to reach a New World filled with horrors of natives and starvation. There was no future for them in Germany and there lives were in danger. Anna is the only one in her community that can speak English so she must translate for her people. They left their village in April.

June 29th they finally boarded the ship. They would go on to Plymouth before they could cross the ocean. Seasickness soon had everyone under the weather except for a young boy Felix who was like a little brother to Anna. His father had already gone to the New World to purchase land for them. This young boy was her responsibility since her mother is still grieving from the death of her second son. Felix had a cast iron stomach and was able to explore all he wanted while are were ill.

Bairn is the Carpenter of the ship which makes him third in command. His is upset by the fact that the ship is overcrowded and they are not prepared for so many people. Hundred of people were force to live in terrible circumstances in the below deck. The deck hands called the Amish and the Mennonites the "Peculiars." and had little use for them. July they finally got to Plymouth. Bairn was disappointed he was unable to go ashore but would have to deal with these people. He is somehow drawn to this Amish community especially the beautiful Anna. July 17th they finally head out to Philadelphia. October they were finally able to leave the ship. A voyage of twists an turns that turn their wold upside down.

This is a journey of trials and tribulations of survival through horrendous adversities. God has a plan for this little community. A plan for a hope and a future. God has a plan for you too. God has a plan for you too. Surrender your heart to Him and watch Him work in your life.
