Spotlight and Cover Reveal for Tanya Eavenson’s Book The Rescue!

About the Book

Upon the death of her mother, Rosalind Standford’s life shatters. She is forced into a betrothal to a cunning banker close to her father’s age.

Cowboy Trent Easton, Rosalind’s childhood friend, returns to his roots in Boston society to find her engaged to another. Though she once rejected him, when Trent learns she’s in danger, he’ll do whatever it takes to keep her safe—even taking her to the altar in the black of night. But will his name and the remote wilds of his Texas ranch be enough to protect her? Or will freedom cost them their lives?

THE RESCUE, the first book in Tanya Eavenson’s brand new series, All Roads Lead to Texas, is set to release this September! I can’t wait to read it!!

P.S.  Isn’t the cover gorgeous?

Worrisome Wednesday (at least for me!)

Books

Recently, over the course of a few months, a spate of historical fiction books arrived in my box. I love historical and Biblical fiction. I enjoy history, and books like these bring the time period alive for me. However, because of my PTSD, I am unable to review them, which greatly saddens me. They are all written by great authors, and some are even sequels, which makes the situation doubly sad.

Authors, please know, I love your books and so enjoy reading and reviewing them. Sometimes, I just can’t. Please accept my apologies and know I pass the books on to other enthusiastic readers.

Delilah “Buzz”

Fay Lamb’s book, Delilah, deals with many daunting issues. Some almost everyone faces, some others have faced, some people are still dealing with-issues like child abuse, alcoholism, homelessness and abandonment. However, you aren’t left with despair because the story models forgiveness, kindness, charity and Christ-like love.

Today, I chose to mention homelessness. One portion of Delilah’s story highlights the plight of the homeless. Over the winter, I had an experience with someone homeless. We don’t have many homeless in our town. A combination, I believe, because of its size and lack of anywhere for these poor souls to go. Though my story, https://captivedreamswindow.wordpress.com/2018/12/04/strange-and-unusual-encounter/, doesn’t have the ending Delilah does and focuses on a slightly different aspect, the plight of homelessness is poignant and vital for us to consider.

Read Delilah; you’ll be so glad you did!!

It Is Finished, He Is Risen And Now He Lives So We Can!

Happy Easter/Resurrection Sunday

Luke 24:1-9 King James Version (KJV)

1 Now upon the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they came unto the sepulchre, bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain others with them.

And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre.

And they entered in, and found not the body of the Lord Jesus.

And it came to pass, as they were much perplexed thereabout, behold, two men stood by them in shining garments:

And as they were afraid, and bowed down their faces to the earth, they said unto them, Why seek ye the living among the dead?

He is not here, but is risen: remember how he spake unto you when he was yet in Galilee,

Saying, The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.

And they remembered his words,

And returned from the sepulchre, and told all these things unto the eleven, and to all the rest.

“Buzz” About Delilah by Fay Lamb

Every now and then I read a book that really touches me deep inside. To say that Fay Lamb’s books touch me on the deepest level possible would be an undervaluation of the impact of her books.

Delilah, in addition to other books Fay has written, left an indelible print (no pun intended!) on me. Because of its influence, I decided to do “Buzz” About Delilah every few days through the remainder of April. Today is the first one.

Delilah

She’s definitely changed. I don’t know why or how. She’s still self-confident. She’s bright. Maybe a little too brash at times, but I’ve seen her tone it down a notch or two.” Who’d have thought he’d be defending Delilah James?
