Once I started reading Beneath Copper Falls, I didn’t put it down until three in the morning. I have went and bought another book by her. I also finished it in one day. Can’t wait to read these books!

  34. One of the best read this year: Prague Winter by Madeleine Albright
    I enjoy reading about WW2 and the events leading up to it and this was a lot of new for me. Heartbreaking and informative.

  35. Usually I would say the one I just finished….it was great but I think my favorite was Isaiah’s Daughter by Mesu Andrews.

  36. One excellent book I read this summer is “The Theory of Happily Ever After” by Kristin Billerbeck. I love her writing!

  37. I’ve read so many excellent books this summer. One was Matchmaker by Evangeline Kelly. Another one was A Perfect Weakness by Jennifer Davids. Another excellent book was A Captured Bride by Michelle Griep.

  38. Judah’s Wife, by Angela Hunt, is a book I enjoyed reading. I learned a lot about the silent years, the Maccabees, and ancient Israelite customs and difficulties. I love a book that makes me see the world or humanity differently.

  39. As Bright As Heaven by Susan Meissner. It takes place during the Spanish flu epidemic, a period of history I didn’t know much about.

  40. A great book I read this summer was Sheila Walsh’s In the Middle of the Mess. Sheila is so real and genuine in her writing, and readers will feel so connected with her story. She helps you to go from shame, guilt, and desperation to healing.

  41. I was not too impressed with my summer reads, but I really liked some books I read this past year. Sophie’s Heart by Lori Wick, For Love or Country by Jennifer Hudson Taylor, Burning Sky, and More Than Meets the Eye by Karen Witemeyer were very good.

  42. I read several books that I really liked over the summer. Two of them are The Amish Quilter by Mindy Starns Clark & Leslie Gould and More Than Meets the Eye by Karen Witemeyer.

  43. I haven’t read just one great book, I have read many! The Sons of Blackbird Mountain, The Love Letter, and currently reading As Wide As The Sky. I think every book transports me to a time and place that not only lets me escape reality for a while, but usually teaches me something about history or how I might possibly handle a certain scenario.

  44. Just finished Tomorrow About This Time by Grace Livingston Hill. Loved it. Love romance, amish, and mystery. Love Leslie Gould books.

  45. I really loved Lynette Eason’s Called to Protect and Dead Drift by Dani Pettrey, and Jen Turano’s Caught by Surprise was a hoot. How am I supposed to choose between all the great reads this season??

  46. I just finished reading ‘A Rebel Heart'(Daughtry House Book #1) by Beth White. It was amazing!! It was rich in history, suspense, and a perfect blend of mystery and romance.

  47. Sarah Sundin’s Waves of Freedom Trilogy- delightful read. Patriotic and a Christian point of view that contributes to the story and doesn’t weigh it down. Her stories brought me into the historical fiction world of WWll, I’ve read all the completed trilogies, and these books once again, ‘well done’

  48. This Summer I read Suzanne Woods Fisher’s outstanding: “Anna’s Crossing (Amish Beginnings Book 1)”. I loved all three books in the series, because it combined genes I love: Early American Settlement, America’s Settlement by Persecuted Christian Groups, Historic Christian Romances, & American Settlers & Indian Interaction stories!
