I love to read. I am taking advantage of this Summer and getting a lot of reading in. The thing is, I find myself reading till all hours of the night! haha
I just finished reading "In search of Eden" by Linda Nichols. The way I ran into her was through Nicholas Sparks' website. When asked if he could recommend only 1 book to people, he said it would be "Handyman" by Linda Nichols. So, I read it and it was really good... now I am moving through the rest of her books.
In Search of Eden is about a girl who has a baby at 15 and her mother gives it away for adoption. She doesn't even get to know the sex of the baby... that haunts her life. Through circumstances, she has a chance to start looking for her. But it's more than about the search of a baby. This book is about healing of wounds, and how God is always with us, guiding our way. It was VERY good.
Other authors I like are (of course) Nicholas Sparks, Terry Blackstock, Dee Henderson. I have read ALL of Sparks & Blackstock. Working through Dee Henderson. I would recommend these authors.
Desere Hewitt gave me a bag of books to read. They are mostly about the "pioneer" era, you know, "little house in the prairie" times. I don't really get into that, though a couple of them were pretty good. I am more into present time stories. Maybe I relate better.
I have a lot friends who are big into Karen Kingsbury. I plan on reading her stuff, but I tend to want to finish one author at a time. So as soon as I get through Linda Nichols' books, I will get started on KK. She seems to write in series and I like that. Terri Blackstock does that too...
So, what are YOU reading this Summer?
