"Deceived" {a review}

A child whose death was never explained, a body never found, and a mother who never gave up hope are the basis of a book by Irene Hannon titled "Deceived". When a chance encounter in a mall reawakens the hope that Kate has held onto for years that her son is still alive, a new friendship and random events open the door to answers she has long been seeking. 
This is the kind of book I love to read. I gladly give this book 5 stars and set it into my read again pile. Pick this book up and enjoy it with the beautiful fall weather and a cup of coffee.

Just in time for a new week.....

With this new job I don't really have a whole lot of time for reading BUT I was so excited about these two books that I made time for them.
Dan Wash and Gary Smalley have added to their Restoration series with "The Desire". This book follows Michelle and her husband in their journey to have a child of their own. While on a trip to Africa, Michelle's husband, Allen, meets a girl who changes his perspective on how that child will come into their lives. Michelle is not on board. So, when her mom meets a young, pregnant girl who wants to find a forever home, Michelle and Allen have to weigh their desire for a child of their own or a child who God wants to place in their arms. The surprising conclusion of this book is worth the wait. 

Now you know that I love anything that Holley Gerth puts out and her new book is no exception. I love how every time I read her words it is Holley speaking directly to me. And I love how much I needed this book when it came. Her words give encouragement in the dark hours and even on the good days. She is a mother of words and this is a new "daughter" to be proud of. 

I am excited about these new books and can't wait to hear what you think.
