I hesitated to read this book because I just didn't want to get scared or depressed, but the author's use of the 5 year old Jack to tell the story gave it a fresh, curious and unique voice. I could not put this one down and would recommend it to everyone.

Another wonderful book by Charles Martin. This story of enduring love, the heartbreak of cancer, and the power to endure anything will keep you spellbound and cheering and crying all at the same time.

Any Minute by Joyce Meyer

This book was just what I needed to read at the time I picked it up. I had no idea when I started that it was Christian fiction. The story is a modern day adaptation of "A Christmas Carol". And even though the story is an old one, the message is still a good one. Pass this one on to someone that might need to read it again.

Tradd Street #2: The Girl on Legare Street by Karen White

Good light read, but not as good as the House on Tradd Street. Maybe I shouldn't have read them back to back. This book, I don't think, could stand on it's own. There is too much background in the first book that you need for the second one. The ending for me was a little of a let down. I thought it would be more complicated.

Asta in the Wings by Jan Elizabeth Watson

This is an amazing little book. I finished it in one sitting because once I got past the first 10 pages, I just couldn't put it down. Even though it deals with a sad and horrible subject of child abuse, It does it in a way that will bring smiles and laughter to your face. The strength and spirit that Asta has will give you a renewed believe in the spirit of survival.
