Headed for Bookmooch

I plan to put these on Bookmooch. Email me if you want them.

I recently read two Debbie Macomber books. A Season of Angels is basically the same book as Touched by Angles listed below. Different humans, same angels, happy endings. Susannah's Garden is about a middle-aged woman who returns to her hometown a few months after her father's death to move her mother into an assisted living facility. She had been dreaming about a high school boyfriend for months and while she is there, ends up looking for him. The book has a surprise ending (happy of course) and she makes peace not only with her decesased father but also with her daughter and she realizes how much she loves her husband. She ends up buying a flower shop on Blossom Street in Seattle.

An Echo in the Darkness is book II in her Mark of the Lion series. It is about a Jewish/Christian girl named Hadassa who is thrown to the lions and survives and uses her life to spread the Good News. There is a love story included but it is not at all graphic. The sexual depavity of the Romans is mentioned in and is a part of the book, but there is nothing graphic--no bedroom scenes, and the sinners end up repenting. It took a little longer for me to get into this book than what River's modern-day novels do, but I ended up enjoying it and will look for others in the series.

They Called Her Mrs. Doc is by Janette Oke. It is about the daughter of a Montreal physician who marries a doctor who is determined to return home to the frontier to practice medicine. It is told from the viewpoint of the old woman looking back at her life. It is Christain fiction and a little preachy but an enjoyable read.

Wisconsin by Andrea Boeshaar is a series of three novellas all set in Wisconsin in the present day. They were all love stories, all quite predictable and very preachy.

  1. Thanks for the heads up by email. I've been behind in blog reading lately as well as blog writing. I'm going to have to have my bookmooch go "on vacation" on Monday since my books will be packed and on their way to the US.
    I was thinking the other day that YOU thought of the bookmooch concept - drats, think what you could have done if you'd had the computer knowledge
