Review: From This Moment by Kim Vogel Sawyer

 

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Blurb: 

A lost ring brings together two wounded souls--a youth minister haunted by the past and a spunky church custodian--in this heartwarming romance from the bestselling author of The Librarian of Boone's Hollow.

Growing up in the foster care system, Jase Edgar always dreamed of one day starting his own family. But his fiance's untimely death shattered his plans. Moving to Kansas and serving as a youth minister should be a fresh start, but he can't seem to set aside his doubts about God's goodness long enough to embrace his new life.

Newly-appointed church custodian, Lori Fowler is battling her own challenges. Her strained relationship with her father and her struggles with overeating convince her she's not worthy enough for love. When an Amish weaver enlists their help locating the owner of a ring found among the donated clothing she uses as fabric, Jase and Lori find themselves drawn to each other. But will they be able to release the past and move forward from this moment into a joyful future?



My Review: 

Kim Vogel Sawyer has been on my top favorite author list for years now. I have read every single one of her books and have been eagerly waiting for her newest release, From This Moment. She knows how to touch the readers heart and feel the Grace of God, while crafting a beautiful story. This one is no different. I adored Jase and Lori and was interested in what would happen to them throughout. I had the whole book read in one sitting.

From This Moment would get one hundred stars from me if it were possible. I highly recommend it for readers who enjoy reading faith filled Amish r0mance. It should not be missed.

I received an ebook copy of From This Moment from the publisher. This review is one hundred percent my own honest opinion.

My Experience with Haiti

Prior to the 2010 catastrophic 7.0 magnitude earthquake that caused immense damage to the country of Haiti, many people would not have been able to tell you that Haiti and the Dominican Republic share the island of Hispaniola just a two hour flight from Miami.

I knew where it was because our family had adopted a child from Haiti in 1997. At the time the earthquake took place, my husband and I were in the process of adopting twins from a different orphanage in Port au Prince Haiti. It had been over three years and our adoption was not yet complete. During those three years I visited the twins at the orphanage five times. Other family members went with me on some of those trips, and at one point, all of our children still living at home went to visit the orphanage.

This was an eye opening experience for my family. In fact, I volunteered us to do the daily wash. That meant hand washing clothes and sheets for 135 orphans using large metal tubs and harsh soap, then rinsing the clothes in other tubs before hand wringing them and hanging them on clotheslines. Once home, my children no longer complained about unloading the dryer!

Cooking was done in large pots over open fires and mainly consisted of rice and beans, or red sauce over rice. The cooks originally prepared the food in a wooden shack, but more than once one of them would get so hot she’d pass out, so an outdoor area was set up for food preparation.

After the earthquake, there was a mountain of paperwork to be done to get refugee status for children in the orphanages who had families waiting for them. Finally the children were brought to the United States, although some of the orphans went to other countries too, to be united with their forever families. Sadly, many were held in the airport for days before being released. For our family, the long wait was over January 25, 2010. Now our family is complete with three birth children and five adopted children, three of whom are from Haiti.

Some of the places mentioned in the book resemble real places in Haiti, although they have been fictionalized. I hope you will not only read Catching Hope, but will also take time to learn more about the country of Haiti.

My Review

Catching Hope is another good read by Kathy Cassel. I thought it was one that was easily to read in one sitting. It is just under one hundred eighty pages long but full of intrigue. There was a lot there that I liked reading in a book. This includes: mystery, suspense, danger, action, and adventure. I love how there was a lot of faith elements to it. I found it to be an inspiration to read. 

I am giving Catching Hope four and a half stars. I recommend this one for readers who are teenagers and up. I am sure they will not be disappointed. Kathy Cassel is starting to become among the authors that I look forward to reading. This one is definitely worth a read and should not be missed. I really like it.

My Review: 

My family and I enjoyed watching Dolphin Island. It had some funny parts that kept my kids entertained. We adored Mitzy the Dolphin. She was so cute. I love the roll she played throughout the movie. She was no doubt my favorite character of the movie. The storyline was heartwarming and I loved the bond between Annabel and her grandfather. It was great how their new friends jump in to help when they needed the most. 

I am giving Dolphin Island four stars. It is clean and I believe it would be okay for all viewers young and old.

Ella thought becoming a mother to five daughters a month after marriage would be difficult.  Sixteen years later, letting go is even harder.  What should be a joyous time of Amaryllis spreading her wings as she graduates from the College of Industrial Arts… isn’t.

Ella fears that Amaryllis will lose a grip on her faith, her upbringing, and the goals Ella believes she should have.  Will Ella’s mother-in-law’s high society friends puff up the girl until Amaryllis loses sight of what’s important?  If Amaryllis stays away, can Ella trust that the Lord will keep the girl safe? Can she trust Him with her daughter’s well-being period?

Of course, she can!  But will she?

When everything begins to crumble around her, Ella must decide where she will place her trust—in her own capable hands or in the Lord’s sovereign ones.

When the Backstory Is Tragic

Family lore abounds in my family tree, much of it tragic. There’s the Boyd Irish crystal heiress who forsook her heritage for love in 1747 colonial America. The Billingsley American patriot hanged in his front yard by Tories in 1776. The Brooks great-grandfather who lost his three brothers in the Civil War and its aftermath. And the De Graffenried Swiss baron who brought a group from Switzerland to establish New Bern, North Carolina in 1711 and was captured by Indians.

Among the most tragic stories is how my grandmother, Ella Pyle Banks, buried 5 daughters and 2 husbands. Mama Ella and Papa Tribble’s story has waited years to be told. Part of it is the inspiration for my latest novella release, Soon the Dawn.

Ella Jane Pyle met William Tribble Banks in Indian Territory prior to Oklahoma statehood. They married in Elmore City in 1904 and welcomed seven girls over the next 18 years. Papa Tribble, a kind and sensitive one-armed man, farmed. And Mama Ella, known for her salt-of-the-earth character and neighborliness, was the one folks called on to tend their sick and prepare their loved ones’ bodies for burial. She possessed a will of iron, but her voice was whisper soft. I love the story about how Papa tried to kiss her while they were courting, and she responded with a slap. “No kiss from me until you’ve proposed.”

When I decided to write for publication, I knew I would create stories based on my family’s experiences. There are transatlantic stowaways, rejection by Quaker brethren, murder of a groom at his wedding reception, prisoners of war, deaths by lightning, fortunes won and lost, and more disease and death than I can imagine. With such drama hanging on the various branches, how could I not include these stories?

What’s an author to do with such tragedy?

Tragedy and loss are integral parts of life on fallen Earth, but triumph invariably attends each loss. Wellness follows disease. Light peeks through the darkness. Blessings attend tragedies. And life follows death. It’s the space between the two that intrigues me as a storyteller.

My task, then, in creating a story inspired by Papa Tribble and Mama Ella’s experiences was to find the colorful strands among the black, the shining light amid the darkness, and the blessings tucked into the folds of the woe.

Soon the Dawn contains dark and light strands and many colors between. But it’s the stitching—Jesus—who binds the strands together. He turns an ordinary morning into a hint of the “Sweet By & By.” As the delicate aroma of the Rose of Sharon, He scents the sultry stillness before a summer storm. And He wraps the bitterness of grief and failure in the richness of His incomparable grace.

I offer Soon the Dawn to Jesus as a tale that reaches beyond the ordinary to the extraordinary because of His grace.

My Review: 

I have enjoyed books by Linda Brooks Davis. So, I was excited to have the opportunity to read her newest novella, Soon the Dawn. It is the first book from her latest series, Valley of Promise. I thought it was a great book. At just above one hundred fifty pages, it is a quick read but full of history, faith and love. I had issue reading all of it in one sitting. I enjoyed getting to know Ella, as well as Amaryllis. 

Soon the Dawn gets four and a half stars from me. I recommend it for readers who enjoy clean Historical Fiction. I look forward to reading the next installment from the Valley of Promise series. This one was a great introduction to the series and will be eagerly waiting to release.

I received Soon the Dawn from the publisher. This review is one hundred percent my own honest opinion.

My Review: 

Love and Other Moods is a wonderful debut for Crystal Z. Lee. I found the plot to be unique and quite refreshing to read something new and different. It was nice to travel to modern day Shanghai with Naomi Kita-Fan. I loved watching this young woman grow throughout the novel. She had to learn a lot about herself and the world around her. Her story was fun and entertaining. I can not imagine going to a different country and go on such an adventure. I enjoyed seeing this journey through her eyes. The details are so detailed, colorful and vivid that I really felt like I was right there. It flowed so well that held my attention from start to finish and kept me continuously captivated. I loved it. 

I will be giving Love and Other Moods four and a half stars. I would love to read more by Crystal Z. Lee in the near future. She has great talent as a story teller and I look forward to see where her imagination will take her readers next. I recommend this one for readers who enjoy reading Coming of Age novel and the New Adult genre, as well as, for those who love learning about other cultures, such as, the Chinese culture. It is most definitely worth a read and not to be missed. I thought it was a great read.

My Review:

Caitlin E Bangsund’s Marvellous Macey, The Delightful Days is a cute little tale. I love entering into little Macey’s world. I thought she was an inspiration and a good role model for so many readers who would be able to relate to her. I love her imagination and her ability to love and be kind with all she encounters. She just puts a smile on my face. She is a brave little girl and am so glad to meet her. It is exciting to find out that this story is based on the real Macey, which is marvellous! How sweet is that?

The pictures from Marvellous Macey, The Delightful Days are so wonderful. These beautiful and creative illustrations are the makings and from the talents of Csongor Veres. I thought the pictures were a perfect addition to the story and ones that easily keeps young readers attentive and involved. 

Marvellous Macey, The Delightful Days gets a very well deserved five plus stars from me. I highly recommend it for readers who are three to nine years old. I hope to find more books by  Caitlin E Bangsund in the near future. I am hoping to meet Macey in another story soon. I can not wait to share my copy with my son’s elementary school librarian. She will be so excited to have it on the school library shelves for her students.
