The Christmas Pony.. a book review

Do you like Christmas Stories?

I love this time of the year when you find tons of books with a 
Christmas theme.

Melody Carlson has a new novel out called

The Christmas Pony


With Christmas around the corner, the Turnbull family is in need of a few small miracles.
It is 1937, and Lucy Turnbull knows better than to wish for a pony this Christmas. Her mother has assured her in no uncertain terms that asking for a pony is the same as asking for the moon. Besides, the only extra mouths they need at their boarding house are the paying kind. Then an interesting pair of strangers comes to town, and Lucy's world changes forever.

This was a fun story to read.  Lucy's character reminded me of a
child with a one tracked mind.. and she knows 
beyond anything else, she is going to get a pony for

This is one story you will want to read this holiday season...

Snuggle up with a good book this winter

Do you need some great books to snuggle up with this winter?
Recently I have read some great novels, I would like to share with you.

Twice Promised
by Maggie Brendan

 Two beautiful brides. One unsuspecting groom. Three weeks to figure it all out.
Greta Olsen arrives in Central City, Colorado, as a mail-order bride, expecting to marry Jess Gifford, the man she's come to know through his tender letters. But when she meets Cora Johnson, she discovers she's not the only bride waiting at the train station for Jess.
Already shocked to find they must compete for Jess's affection, the young women can hardly believe it when not Jess but his brother Zach picks them up from the station--and reveals that Jess knows nothing about any mail-order bride, let alone two. Will either bride make the match she hopes for?

You can imagine the fun these ladies are going to have in this book. Both ladies think they are there to marry Jess, but Jess  had no idea. 

This is a very funny book, I laughed, laughed, laughed while reading it.  Maggie has a great since of humor.  It comes through in her writing.

A promise to Love 
by Serena Miller

A Promise to love is a story about an Swedish woman named Ingrid, and a young widower  Joshua.

Joshua is about to loss his  rambunctious children when his wife's parents take him to court. 
Ingrid, is so upset during the court hearing that she stands up 
and tells the Judge that she will care for Joshua's children.
Joshua has no idea what is in store for him!
It is a very heart breaking story. Ingrid discovers that Joshua's first 
wife was very sick. She tries to hide the truth but only to 
get hurt in the process. 

This is a great novel... I love how Ingrid is a very strong woman that 
handles things when they come up. 
She has had tons of heart ache already, but she handles these 
new challenges with grace.

This book will be one you really want to read this winter!

Are you still with me?

Now on to the Last book!

 A Flight of Fancy
by Laurie Alice Eakes

Cassandra Bainbridge has already called off her wedding to Geoffrey Giles once, but when the couple 
are involved in an accident, Cassandra decides she wants nothing to do with Geoffrey anymore.

Geoffrey will not give up on the love of his life.

This novel is about a man fighting for what he wants and not giving up until he gets it!

You see the accident leave Cassandra worried about what people will think if Geoffrey marries her...

This novel is a heart felt book , that will keep you engaged!

It is a must have for those winter, snowy days when you 
want to snuggle and read by the fireplace.

~These books can be found at your local bookstore where Revell books are sold~

*All of these books were given to me by Baker Publishing Company*

What are you thankful for today?

November is the month we set aside to give thanks. 

November is the month we celebrate Thanksgiving, the time where we remember our founding fathers coming to America. 
Its the month where we tell and retell the story of the Pilgrims and the Indians.

Its the month that I have set aside, (as well as many of my friends) to take time out each day to write something
I am thankful for.

 In every thing give thanks....
1 Thess 5:18

So today's thankful...

I am thankful for my husband, Doug. He is a very hard worker, and does anything and everything he can to support his family.
I love that he is willing to set aside things he wants, to 
be able to give to the family what we need.  

I love you Doug, and thank the Lord everyday that 
he placed you in my life!

What are you thankful for today?
