"Book Review Friday"
1 Corinthians 13:4 "Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up."
Sarah Sundin's debut novel, A Distant Melody, is a must read!! I cannot stress it enough. Both men and women will be drawn into this beautifully written story page after page.

Here is the blurb from the back cover:



Never pretty enough to please her gorgeous mother, Allie will do anything to gain her approval--even marry a man she doesn't love.

Book Review Friday”
Psalm 123:1 “Unto thee lift I up mine eyes, O thou that dwellest in the heavens.”

The weekend has come upon us once more and I have another great book for you to curl up on the sofa with…

A good read for both men and women alike, “Dawn of a Thousand Nights” by Tricia Goyer, is the most historically correct World War II novel I’ve ever read!
I chose this book for today’s review because of its compelling story of tragedy, love, honor and faith. It is the 2nd book in Tricia Goyer’s World War II Liberator’s Series.
The story follows two pilots from the December 7th attack on Pearl Harbor, through the brutal Bataan Death March, and concludes with the end of the war in 1945.
If you like World War II fighter planes, gripping tales of Prisoners of War, edge-of-your-seat combat, and a classic love story, this book is for you!

Check out Tricia Goyer’s new book, “The Memory Jar”.

“True American Heroes”

In my first interview with a World War II Navy veteran, I discovered a function of the military that is new to me.
While I have spent most of my time researching Army tactics, following certain Army companies and infantries, and, yes, even researching the Army Nurse Corps, I have yet to even begin looking into other branches of military.
When I first heard there was a man from our former church who served in World War II, my internal radar immediately went up! So what did I do? I got on the phone and started making calls. With much thanks to my mother and Aunt I was able to set up a place and time to meet up with this veteran. Little did I know what was in store for me. . . It was my understanding this war veteran was a ball turret gunner on a B-17 Flying Fortress. However, upon my arrival I was informed my B-17 gunner was actually a Navy man—a turret gunner on a Grumman Avenger Torpedo plane. Immediately my mind started spinning. All my questions were based on the…
