Jesus Always Forgives Us

IMG_8689

A Love So True is beautifully written and reminds us that there is compassion regardless of what others do. This is the second book in the Teaville Moral Society series. I thoughly enjoyed reading the book and found it hard to put down once I started reading it.

Evelyn has a huge heart for women and children of the Red Light district. Her desire is to buld a home that these women can call their own. (My heart ached for those for felt they needed to prostitute themselves out.) No one wants to support this endeavor. If Evelyn can not convince local businesses to support and help financially, her dream may not happen.

David Kingsman is in Teaville to get his father’s business, A.K. Glass back on solid ground. His plan is to only stay in Teaville for a short time, that is until he meets Evelyn. He finds himself dropping in at the orphanage just to talk to Evelyn. Both David and Evelyn experience the same things we all do: second chances, joy and heartache. A common theme throughout the book was that Jesus forgives us regardless of what we think or the mistakes we make. Can they both trust God’s plan despite what may be stacked againist them?

I received an Advance Reader’s Copy of “A Love So True” for an honest review.

The Ebb Tide

The Ebb Tide is a story about a young Amish woman whose dreams took her all over the world. Our lives are like the ebb tide, low at certain times during our seasons of life and needing God’s hand and high at other times.

Sallie Riehl is strugling with having to join her Amish Community and her promise to her mother to be baptized and join the church. How can Sallie be happy? While working as a waitress at a local restaurant she meets an English family when serving them dinner. She travels to Cape May, New Jersey with the family for the summer as a nanny to their daughter Autum.

While in Cape May, Sallie meets Kevin, a Mennonite. For the first time since leaving home for the summer, it dawns on Sallie that Kevin understands her and the desires to travel.

As the summer progresses so does the friendship between the both of them. Sallie starts to see how God has plans for her that are different from what she has and her heart is confused.

Will God lead Sallie to a different place or will it just be a friendship with Kevin?

We all have an ebb tide and rely on Jesus’s love and strength to carry us through.
