The Black Stallion (Black Stallion #01) by Walter Farley
The Black Stallion (Black Stallion #01)

I guess all girls love horses. I know I did and I devoured The Black Stallion series. This is the first in the series, any of which will please a young horse lover. The stories are exciting and each one is unique. If there is young girl you need to buy a gift for, get her this volume and you may not have to ponder, in the future, over what she might like. The series is long and will cover many birthday and holiday gifts.

Steps to Christ by Ellen Gould White
Steps to Christ

phylvo, February 7, 2012

This is a small volume, packed with concepts that enable us to know Jesus and to walk His walk. You will find thoughts on every page you will want to save. It is easy to read and deep thoughts are given in simple language. A book written for the man in the pew and for the man behind the pulpit. Keep it by your bed, insomnia has its benefits.

The Ritual Bath (Peter Decker & Rina Lazarus Novels) by Faye Kellerman
The Ritual Bath (Peter Decker & Rina Lazarus Novels)

phylvo, February 7, 2012

This is the first in an engrossing series, based on detective Pete Decker and his Orthodox wife, Rina Lazarus. This book, in addition to a spellbinding criminal case, introduces us to the characters, explaining how they met and how they overcame some seemingly insurmountable obstacles to their love. I highly advise you to start with this book and then I know you will go on to read the rest, as Pete and Rina get on with their lives and how they solve some rather unique crimes. Faye is one of my favorite authors, can you tell?

Suzanne's Diary for Nicholas by James Patterson
Suzanne's Diary for Nicholas

phylvo, February 7, 2012

James Petterson writes great mystery stories, but was I ever surprised at this book, a totally different type of story. This is a moving, keep the kleenix handy, story about love and the various aspects of it. Suzanne left a diary for her son, Nicholas, to read after she is gone and reading it now is a woman who loves Nicholas' father. Love takes us down some strange paths and Patterson surely leads us deftly along this one. You will enjoy this book and it will clean out your

The Source by James A Michener
The Source

phylvo, February 7, 2012

This is my all-time favorite read. The saga of one spot in Israel through time. We join an archeological dig and the artifacts they discover take us back in history and we experience life in the stone age, life when people sacrificed babies to hungry gods and life when invaders despoiled the land and took away treasure. The perspective is through the lives of one stone age man's descendents. It is written so that each section is complete in itself. The only ongoing portion is the current time dig adventures. It is a fat book, but don't be put off by that. You can read some and put it down and pick it up and jump right into it. Keep it handy because the "put it down time" will get shorter and shorter. Enjoy!
