Embodied Light: Advent Reflections on the Incarnation by Melissa Tidwell
Embodied Light: Advent Reflections on the Incarnation

N, November 1, 2013

I'm really loving this. I like bringing the full body into the reflections. Staying in touch with my body during a time when a lot of junk food is in my face is very helpful. As a personal devotional I find this a wonderful book. Three and a half stars because I am disappointed that the reflections don't continue through Epiphany.

The Advent cycle is four weeks. I was a little confused by the six week group study guide provided at the end. I'm not sure the best way to gather six times in the four week period. Just my lack of creativity.

Thank you Upper Room for sharing this title with me in exchange for my honest review. I was grateful for this opportunity.

Another Forgotten Child by Cathy Glass
Another Forgotten Child

N, June 11, 2013

I really like Cathy Glass's books. I would recommend them to anyone that liked Torey Hayden or Mary MacCracken. All of these authors trace the growth of children with enormous emotional challenges. Cathy Glass is British and so shows us another country's way of helping these children. The things that work and those that are problematic. Ms Glass's dialog is sometimes stilted, but she is a great storyteller. When I pick up her books, I just can't put them down. I get absolutely nothing done until the last page is finished.

The Glimpses of the Moon by Edmund Crispin
The Glimpses of the Moon

N, June 5, 2013

This was a very fun book. It took me a little while to get into it, but it was worth the trouble. Great characters, good story, lots of laughs. I was very glad to have it on my eReader. Edmund Crispin uses a lot of archaic language. Having a dictionary at my fingertips was really helpful. I really enjoyed this book and am ready to read it again. My enthusiasm convinced my husband to read it. I'll be glad to have someone to share it with. Thank you to NetGalley for introducing me to this delightful book.
