Book Review - " Amish Proverbs"

Suzanne Woods Fisher has created a beautiful gift book, " Amish Proverbs - Words of Wisdom From the Simple Life." Fisher's book is filled with pictures portraying this simple way of life along with ancedotes and tidbits of wisdom. One of my favorite proverbs that is included in this book is "Faith is the bridge over which we can cross all the unknown waters of tomorrow." Especially in today's society and no matter what "group" we affiliate with, faith is something that we all need in order to face the struggles and hardships of everyday life and have something to get up for in the morning.
Revell Publishers were kind enough to provide me with a second copy of this book to give-away! If you would like a chance to win it, please leave me a comment with your family family proverb. I will choose the winner a week from today, Tuesday, September 7th. Good luck!

Book Review - "The Bishop"

The much-anticipated fourth book in the Patrick Bowers series by Steven James, "The Bishop" has arrived! A congressman's daughter is dead, and the killers are not done. However, Agent Bowers is having difficulty finding a link between the murders that are taking place. In the midst of trying to solve this difficult case, Bowers is also dealing with issues in his person life. Tessa, Bowers daughter has several questions as she is facing ethical dilemmas and trying to make decisions.
This is a well-written novel, long, but worth the time to read it! Honestly, the story will pull you in and you will fly through the pages. James' writing is quite graphic at times just to forewarn you, however this is expected in a suspense/thriller novel. Those scenes can be read quickly or skipped as the story is not one to be missed for suspense fans!
