I will admit from the start that I had a hard time getting in Egypt’s Sister by Angela Hunt. I found myself rereading some pages and unable to relate to the characters, this was the first book I have read by Angela Hunt and most often do not read biblical fiction, with that said the author wrote an awesome book The main point of the story was Chava’s relationship with God and Urbi, an Egyptian princess who became as close as sisters. Urbi unexpectedly ascends the throne as Queen Cleopatra. Chava believes their bond is strong enough to survive, but her ultimate betrayal takes her from everything where she must choose between love, honor and God’s will for her life. Overall, a well written story that just didn’t do it for me. I received this book from the Bethany House, but I was in no way required to leave a positive review. I will wait and read Book 2.
The Essential Guide to Prayer: Life-Changing Teaching on the Simplicity of Having a Powerful Prayer Life, by Dutch Sheets is focused on implementing prayer into everyday life.
This book is based on the author’s personal reflections and experiences, as well as research and scripture passages. We should go further in our prayer life by learning how to be intentional when praying. God will answer our prayers on His time, not ours. After the first chapter, I started loosing interest in the book. Some areas were too preachy for me. I don’t need to be movtivated from a book to pray.
I liked some of the questions that are at the end of each chapter- Did you understand? Great resource if you want to focus more on prayer. All opinions in ths review are my own.

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Wedding Dress comes a new captivating novel of secrets, romance, and two women bound together across time by a shared dream.
Why not read The Wedding Dress while waiting for the release of The Writing Desk.
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.
