Trouble with Tulip – Mindy Starns Clark

Having grown up with Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew mysteries I fell in love with Callie Webber of the Million Dollar Series. I wondered if Mindy Starns Clark could develop another character that would intrigue the imagination the way Callie did. When I say the title “Trouble with Tulip” I still wondered. But then I met Jo Tulip and fell in love again with a Mindy Starns Clark character! Jo is different than Callie and the story line very different, but a lot of fun to read.

I am looking forward to the next book in the series!

The Atonement Child – Francine Rivers

Last year I read Francine Rivers book, And the Shofar Blew, and loved it. Although it’s “fiction” there are many trues that every pastor and his family should keep their eyes open for.

I hadn’t read any of Ms. Rivers other books, because they were more historical fiction. (not something I can get excited about – sorry) But I came across The Atonement Child and decided to read it. (Especially when I picked it up used for $2!!) I wasn’t disappointed! Dynah Carey had everything a girl could, loving godly parents, a fiancĂ© that was destined to be a great pastor, when tradegy hit. Dynah’s life is turned upside when she is raped and then forced to face hard decisions. It’s a story of healing and forgiveness. I can’t relate with the pain that women face from having an abortion. But this story reminded me of the importance of forgiveness and their need to find it for themselves. And the importance of the church to support brothers and sisters in the Lord, not destroy them!

Distant Echoes – Colleen Coble

I LOVE Dolphins!!! So when I saw the cover us this book and read the back cover to see a dolphin was a primary part of the story I had to read it. It was a wonderful story of God’s forgiveness and His desire for us to forgive those who have hurt us. There was also espionage, cane spiders, and of course, love.
