Prayer: Does It Make Any Difference? by Philip Yancey
Prayer: Does It Make Any Difference?

MicB, January 1, 2013

I have read this book several times and each time, I find something new. My prayers are re-newed and inspired. Yancey takes the pressure off of trying to "pray right." There is no right or wrong way to pray. There is simply letting God be with me, wherever and however I am in the moment.

Royal Assassin (Bantam Spectra Book) by Robin Hobb
Royal Assassin (Bantam Spectra Book)

MicB, December 30, 2012

I would agree with the other reviewer-not quite as strong as the first book. Very entertaining and gripping none the less. Well worth reading, just to find out what happen's next, and get into the third book.

Assassin's quest

MicB, December 30, 2012

Totally engrossing-I couldn't put it down! Had to get the rest of the trilogy. Hobb's makes this fantasy world easily assessable; no weird names, geography or rules of alternate universes to memorize. If I want to work that hard, I'll read non-fiction! Almost all of the characters are likable and relatable. It kept me guessing what the answers to the mysteries could be!

The Fencing Master by Arturo Perez Reverte
The Fencing Master

MicB, July 19, 2012

A friend recommended Reverte to me and this seemed like a
a good one to start with; long enough to be interesting but not so long I'd be sorry for the time if it wasn't good. All in all, an intriguing character study of a man who is an anachronism in his own time. Throw in political unrest, a mysterious woman, a murder and you've got a decent read.
