Captive Dreams Window began as a blog primarily devoted to life. Now, I mainly do book reviews, however, on occasion, I will provide a thought-provoking post.

I am a prolific and AVID reader and love to blog/review books I’ve read. Most of these books have been graciously provided free. I generally review Christian books. Periodically I am asked to review other books.

I am a grandma who is constantly searching GOD’S will for her life with help from her family plus a constant large menagerie of pets. Ever striving and frequently failing, we want to become “buddies” with the Lord.


Love my family and Christ!

  1. I love your blog! I have been blogging since 2011 and recently started a second blog specifically for my book reviews/book content. How did you get the reader ranking on the side of your blog? That is interesting and different from any other blog I have seen. Thanks. Cindy

    1. Hi Cindy,
      I thought I replied to this earlier. However, I don’t see it!
      I got the reader rank from BookSirens. I was invited to review for them. After I was approved, I received the reader rank info. I can recommend you if you like.
      Thank you for your kind words about my blog!!


      1. I went and signed up for their site! I love that feature! I have not reviewed a book for that site yet, I have a few I need to finish before I can add more to my pile. Thank you so much for replying back and your willingness to recommend me 🙂

  3. Hello Robbye Faye! I am so honored you took the time to stop by and visit my site the other day! Your sweet comment encouraged me to continue sharing my photography of scriptures or Faith Pictures of Psalm 91. In reading some of your viewers comments, I saw you are a huge Jan Karon fan. I LOVE Jan Karon! Reading stories of Mitford and Father Tim literally changed my life and brought me closer to Jesus. Go figure! xoxoxo I’m looking forward to following your blog. God bless you, Denise

  4. Hi Robbye Faye!
    Thank you so much for the work you do here. I can feel your warm spirit radiating through the screen! I found your blog through your Amazon profile page. I’d like to reach out to you and tell you about the books written by the author that I represent. I believe you would enjoy them as you appear to be a Jan Karon fan. If you are interested, please contact me and I would love to send those to you. Either way, thank you again for your kind spirit and please have a wonderful New Year.

    1. Thank you so very much for your kind words!
      I apologize for taking so long to reply. I have been sick and am just now doing better.
      Thank you so much for thinking of me, I am honored. I’m currently booked out for several months. Perhaps, I could contact you around March-April time frame, or earlier, if I am able?
      I do enjoy Jan Karon, so I am sure I would enjoy the books!
      Thank you again so very much!


  5. I’d love for you to review my newly released TRUE life experience and non-fiction book “faulty Christian.” It’s received great reviews on Amazon. I’d be glad to send you the pdf. Thank you. God bless you and your work for Him.

  6. I am so blessed by your reviews! Praise God for using you! I am a new blogger, trying to inspire women with a small “dose” of inspiration, thank you for reading my posts. I want to write a children’s fiction Christian book and don’t have a clue of where to start, new venture for me. Can you offer information as to getting a publisher, illustrator… steps to take in getting started. Kind Regards, ritashavers@yahoo.com

    1. Thank you for your kind words, Rita!
      Congratulations on your venture.
      One of the first things I would recommend is to go to a Writer’s Conference. There are a lot, so I ould try to stick to the Christian ones.
      If you don’t mind waiting a couple of days, I’ll email you with information from others. (I would like to contact them first.)

    1. Nice meeting you, too!
      Thank you. I have more people that dislike the blog name, than those that like it, so I appreciate those kind words very much!
      Looking forward to reading more of your blogs, too!


    1. Thanks for the suggestion. I have never been a sci-fi fan. However, my son got my husband and I to read Ender’s Game…so I will check it out. Right now I am fully booked with reading/reviewing until sometime into the new year, so it may be awhile before I can get to it. Thanks for the suggestion.
      I am glad you are doing well!


  8. Hi Robbye: I found your blog on Goodreads in the Christian Bloggers thread. Do you enjoy biblical fiction? I’m giving you the link to the first four Sample Chapters page for Martha’s Sister Beloved Prodigal. Of course the hope is that you might like to review the book but it’s not required.

    1. Thank you for the inquiry! I do enjoy Biblical Fiction. However, at this time I am booked out until almost the beginning of next year.
      You can send the sample chapters to robbyefaye (at) gmail (dot) com, if you would like.
      Thank you for the inquiry, I’m honored you thought of me.


  9. I’ve been following your blog for a while, and I wanted to ask if you’d be interested in reviewing my first book, Faith’s Journey, that was published earlier this year. I’d be happy to send you a copy if you are. I apologize for approaching you in this way, but I didn’t see a contact link on your page.

    1. I need to fix that, I thought that it was on there. You can contact me at robbyefaye@gmail.com.
      I am currently booked out through October. Could I request you contact me toward the latter part of September? Please reference this message at the time, too.


  10. Hello! I found you on Goodreads. I am a Christian writer looking for people to review my novel “The Bread of Angels.”

    Here’s the back cover text:

    Meghan Martins walked into the cosmetology school and straight into the path of Becky Ellingson, her husband’s ex-girlfriend. Twenty minutes later Meghan raced out of Hair Nation with half her head highlighted and the reality that her husband was not who she thought he was. He had a son, a bank account, and jobs to provide child support which she knew nothing about.

    Meghan thought she’d find clarity by running away, but she found the truth to be far more distorted than she imagined. Everyone was hiding something. And everyone, it seemed, was struggling to maintain the notion that they were somehow better than someone else.

    It would take counseling, a good Bible study and a whole lot of tea to get Meghan Martins and her husband Ben back on the same page. Meghan would come to realize she was hiding just as much and was just as capable of creating damage as her husband.

    Tragedy, controversy and a new understanding of the human condition await Meghan in the tiny town of Oronoco, MN, but so do adventure, hope and witty friends who bring meaning back to her life.

    Please let me know if you are interested. Thank you for considering!

    1. Amber, thank you for contacting me! I feel honored.
      I would be willing to read and review your book. I am booked into late May, early June. I have a few spots (like today!) that are freed up due to unforeseen reasons. If you don’t mind my not being able to read it right away, or that I reserve the right to not review it (with the understanding that I will let you know why), then I’d be honored to read your book.
      I read the intro on Amazon and it sounds like an interesting story. It looks as if it is very relevant to some lives in today’s society.
      My email is robbyefaye (at) g mail (dot) com, if you would prefer to email me.
      Thank you again for contacting me!


  11. Thank you for choosing to share your time with me through following my blog. I hope it encourages you in your growing relationship with the Lord. If you find any of my posts appropriate for your blog, feel free to use them anytime. Thanks again for your support.
