My Review
Decimation is the second installment from R J Amezcua’s Mantis Force: Marium Kahnet series. This book is outside my normal genre, but is a perfect example why readers should pick up something new to read. They may never know how much they will like it. At least, that is the case for me. I thought it was a good read. It was a little confusing at times, but I believe that it was just me not used to fantasy books. And there is, also a lot of characters to keep up with. I have read the first book of the series and want to caution that it would probably be best to read it first before this one.

Decimation has a little bit of everything for a reader to enjoy. Which includes: unpredictable suspense, non stop action and adventure, and several wonderful thoughtful Christian message (which is my favorite of all). To me, this combination kept me going and wanting to see what would happen next in the story. There is a bit happening that made me intrigued. I never knew where the characters were going to go to on the following page. 

I give Decimation three and a half stars. I recommend it for those who would enjoy a clean fantasy and for fan lovers of Star Wars and Star Trek stories. They would not want to miss this one. I look forward to continuing on to the third book in the Mantis Force: Marium Kahnet series, Rebirth. Especially after reading book one, Retribution.

Virtual Book Tour and Giveaway: Queen Mary's Daughter by Emily Jane Hills Orford



Queen Mary's Daughter
by Emily-Jane Hills Orford




~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE:   historical fiction/fantasy

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

There are so many possibilities that affect the course of history. One change, one small item overlooked, can make a world of difference, not only in a person's life, but in the history and well-being of an entire nation. And then there are those multiple scenarios of what if? What if King James VI of Scotland didn't succeed in amalgamating Scotland with England? What if there had been another heir to the throne of Scotland? One who would secure its independence? Would Scotland have remained free and independent and a nation of its own well into the twenty-first century? And would Scotland, this independent version, make its own decision to join the European Union when its southern neighbor was choosing to pull away?

"Queen Mary's Daughter" presents another plausible timeline, one that incorporates both historical fact and fiction with the endless possibilities of time travel.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~

EXCERPT

“What?” the regent bellowed. “Not another Mary, and a Stuart at that. We cannot be related. Are we?” He winced in the dim light and bent forward to take a closer look. “You have her look about you. It is uncanny. You could almost pass for her. And that brooch. Where did you get that brooch?”

“I do not know, sir.” Mary Elizabeth took her time to choose her words carefully. She wasn’t sure how to answer about the brooch, so she steered clear of that comment, saying instead, “Are not all Stuarts somehow related?”

It was not the right thing to say. James Stuart, Regent of Scotland, was not amused. “Grab her. She must be a spy. Or a traitor. Either is punishable by death.” He pointed accusing fingers at the others. “The rest of you stay here. I will deal with this troublemaker.”

My Review

Queen's Mary Daughter is the first book by Emily-Jane Hills Orford I have read. I thought it was a great read. I was fascinated with Mary Elizabeth Stuart's story. It has a lot to offer - romance, history, time travel, what ifs, suspense, action, mystery and excitement. I did not find it to be in any way predictable, which is refreshing for this avid reader. I never knew what would happen next. 

I give Queen Mary's Daughter a well deserved 5 plus stars. 


I received this book from the publisher. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.

Book Blast and Giveaway: Claiming My Place: Coming of Age in the Shadow of the Holocaust by Planaria Price with Helen Reichmann West

Claiming My Place: Coming of Age in the Shadow of the Holocaust
by Planaria Price with Helen Reichmann West

Publication Date: March 13, 2018
Farrar, Straus and Giroux
Hardcover, eBook, AudioBook
Genre: YA/NF/History/Holocaust/WWII
A Junior Library Guild selection Claiming My Place is the true story of a young Jewish woman who survived the Holocaust by escaping to Nazi Germany and hiding in plain sight. Meet Gucia Gomolinska: smart, determined, independent, and steadfast in the face of injustice. A Jew growing up in predominantly Catholic Poland during the 1920s and ’30s, Gucia studies hard, makes friends, falls in love, and dreams of a bright future. Her world is turned upside down when Nazis invade Poland and establish the first Jewish ghetto of World War II in her town of Piotrkow Trybunalski. As the war escalates, Gucia and her family, friends, and neighbors suffer starvation, disease, and worse. She knows her blond hair and fair skin give her an advantage, and eventually she faces a harrowing choice: risk either the uncertain horrors of deportation to a concentration camp, or certain death if she is caught resisting. She decides to hide her identity as a Jew and adopts the gentile name Danuta Barbara Tanska. Barbara, nicknamed Basia, leaves behind everything and everyone she has ever known in order to claim a new life for herself. Writing in the first person, author Planaria Price brings the immediacy of Barbara’s voice to this true account of a young woman whose unlikely survival hinges upon the same determination and defiant spirit already evident in the six-year-old girl we meet as this story begins. The final portion of this narrative, written by Barbara’s daughter, Helen Reichmann West, completes Barbara’s journey from her immigration to America until her natural, timely death. Includes maps and photographs.

Amazon | Barnes and Noble

Praise

“Price has boldly elected to tell the story in Basia’s own first-person, present-tense voice. The result is a dramatic, suspenseful account of survival in extremis, told in collaboration with Basia’s American daughter.” ―Booklist “Price's rendering of West’s mother’s early life reads like suspenseful historical fiction, telling a rarely heard side of the Jewish experience during WWII . . . Family, friendships, and romance give poignancy to this unique coming-of-age story, which is further enhanced by maps, a glossary, and an afterword.” ―Publishers Weekly “A rich exploration of a Holocaust survivor’s sheltered childhood, the atrocity that failed to destroy her, and her later life as an immigrant.” ―Kirkus Reviews “I was completely engrossed by this drama of survival. Barbara Reichmann's story is quite extraordinary. It is sad, and terrible, and yet somehow captivating. The whole story of those who survived the Shoah by passing as Christians and working in Nazi Germany is an often forgotten part of the historical record.” ―Kai Bird, Executive Director, Leon Levy Center for Biography at CUNY Graduate Center, and co-author of the Pulitzer Prize–winning American Prometheus: The Triumph and Tragedy of J. Robert Oppenheimer “As occurs with The Diary of Anne Frank, this book merges the dire circumstances of the Holocaust with the tenuousness of being a teenager. But Claiming My Place expands the view provided in the diary for one critical reason. Anne Frank’s story is told within an isolated cocoon. In Barbara’s story, however, the Holocaust is in full view as her experiences unfold.” ―David H. Lindquist, Ph.D., IPFW College of Education and Public Policy / Regional Museum Educator, United States Holocaust Memorial Museum “This frightening true story of a young Jewish girl's flight from the deadly grip of the Nazis celebrates the surprising ingenuity and raw courage found only in the depths of the human spirit. Risking what few others dared, Barbara Reichmann, née Gucia Gomolinska, speaks with wisdom and uncommon self-awareness through her detailed, colorful, and evocative recollections from earliest childhood. In the final portion of this book, her daughter, Helen West, continues Barbara’s journey in an insightful and loving overview of Barbara’s life from the family’s arrival in New Orleans in 1951 until her death in 2007. This is a great read with the suspenseful, inspiring and uplifting appeal of a novel, about a character who will capture the reader’s heart.” ―Allan Holzman, Peabody and Emmy Award-winning director and editor (Steven Spielberg’s Survivors of the Holocaust, Old Man River, The Native Americans) "Thanks to the detailed memories and the conversational tone, this book provides an engaging and informative reading experience with as much appeal as a fiction title. Recommended for most YA nonfiction collections." ―Magdalena Teske, West Chicago Public Library District School Library Journal "This book was truly a celebration of the human spirit. What a gift she has for putting you in the story. Her way with words, plus her weaving of the actual events recounted to her by the unbelievably courageous Basia and her daughter Helen, was nothing short of magical. The included photographs and epilogue served to fully round out this amazing tale. I never wanted this book to end!" ―Rabbi Lynn Brody Slome

Blog Tour and Review: Gathering of Sisters by Darla Weaver




About the book

Spend a day with sisters.

Once a week Darla Weaver bundles her children into the buggy, hitches up her spirited mare, and drives six miles to the farm where she grew up. There she gathers with her four sisters and their children for a day with their mother. In Gathering of Sisters, Weaver writes about her horse-and-buggy Mennonite family and the weekly women’s gatherings that keep them connected. On warm days, the children play and fish and build houses of hay in the barn. In the winter, everyone stays close to the woodstove, with puzzles and games and crocheting. No matter the weather, the Tuesday get-togethers of this Old Order Mennonite family keep them grounded and centered in their love for God and for each other, even when raising an occasional loving but knowing eyebrow at each other.

The rest of the week is full of laundry, and errands, and work that never ends. But Tuesday is about being sisters, daughters, and mothers.

Hear straight from Amish and Mennonite people themselves as they write about their daily lives and deeply rooted faith in the Plainspoken series from Herald Press. Each book includes “A Day in the Life of the Author” and the author’s answers to FAQs about the Amish and Mennonites.

About the author

Darla Weaver is a homemaker, gardener, writer and Old Order Mennonite living in the hills of southern Ohio. She is the author of Water My Soul, Many Lighted Windowsand Gathering of Sisters. Weaver has written for Family Life, Ladies Journal, Young Companion, and other magazines for Amish and Old Order Mennonite groups. Before her three children were born she also taught school. Her hobbies are gardening and writing.

My Review

Gathering of Sisters: A Year with My Old Order Mennonite Family is an interesting read. I enjoyed getting a glimpse of Mennonite life. I love seeing the love, support and togetherness between the sisters. They made me giggle and made me cry.
I give Gathering of Sisters: A Year with My Old Order Mennonite Family a well-deserved five plus stars. I highly recommend it for readers who want to read firsthand account of Mennonite life.
I received this book from the publisher. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.

Social exclusion is a form of bullying experienced by some children. When it occurs, they feel isolated, alone, and humiliated.

Meet the Author:



Dr. Mildred Peyton is the President and Founder of Peyton Consulting, LLC. Dr. Peyton established her consulting firm, which was initially geared towards school bullying services, in March 2016. She was inspired to create Peyton Consulting and become a children's author on bullying after completing her doctoral research study entitled, "Exploring the Meaning of School Bullying Among Parents of Victimized Children."

During her undergraduate internship in 2002-2003 at Salisbury Middle School in Wicomico County, Dr. Peyton and her team developed and facilitated a mentoring program, providing one-on-one conflict resolution and mediating skills to students who were identified by the program coordinator with ongoing needs of behavioral issues. One of the key/primary areas Dr. Peyton and the other mentors focused on was educating and addressing bullying issues with bullies and victims. And in her graduate program, Dr. Peyton also facilitated a school bullying focus group in 2005 at Maryvale Elementary School in Montgomery County, to teach participants about bullying behaviors and how to avoid bullying others. She also attended several bullying workshops to learn about the latest studies while working with the students. Her passion on this topic followed her even as she served as a member on the Committee on Hate/Violence at Montgomery County Office of Human Rights, in 2013. There she developed a brochure for students and parents for the annual bullying symposium and, provided rich knowledge and skills on this topic throughout the year.

Today, the company has expanded its services to target workplace bullying as well. With the experiences of others and Dr. Peyton's personal experience with adult bullying in the workplace (which caused her to resign from her employer in 2016), she believes attention, guidance, and solutions are also critical in this area. Dr. Peyton holds a Ph.D. in Human and Social Services with a concentration in Social Policy Analysis & Planning. She has a Bachelor's degree in Social Work and Sociology and a Master's degree in Counseling Psychology. Dr. Peyton is committed to using her knowledge and skills to influence positive change among students and adults.

Common Signs Your Child Is Being Bullied

There are common signs that indicate a child may be experiencing bullying. These signs are usually misinterpreted or overlooked by most parents, especially when their child has not communicated their thoughts or feelings to the parents. Some children are afraid to share their concerns with their parents or a trusted adult, as they fear the problem will worsen. That's why recognizing the signs of bullying will save time and, eliminate some of the guesses that may sometimes be associated with a child who has encountered bullying.

If you're a parent or guardian, it is essential to be knowledgeable of the signs of bullying, so you're prepared to help your child if they are being bullied.

When a child is being bullied, he or she is intentionally harassed or assaulted by their peers (or sometimes even by an adult).  Most victims suffer physically, emotionally, and mentally as a result of this negative behavior. Without the right resources and support systems in place, it's possible to notice the following signs of a child who is bullied:

- Physical complaints such as random/sudden
  headaches and stomachaches

- Frequent visits to the school nurse's offices

- Difficulty sleeping

- Loss of appetite/Change in eating habits

- Anxiety

- Depression

- Afraid to go to school or ride the school bus

- Unexplained physical marks, cuts, bruises, etc.

- Missing or damaged toys, school supplies,
  lunches, money, clothing, etc.

- Poor academic performance

-Begins bullying siblings (especially younger siblings)

- Anger

- Frustration

- Isolation from family and friends

- Self-destructive and suicide ideations

- Bedwetting

- Clingy; afraid to be alone

- Low self-esteem

Of course, these symptoms may also indicate other problems. However, a good starting point to determine what may be the cause of your child's symptoms is to ask them if they're being bullied.

My Review

Sophia Writes to Her Bully is a wonderful and relatable book for school age children. Sophia experiences rejection from her fellow classmates at school. She wants to be friends with them and play with them. However, she is heartbroken when Amber is verbally not so nice to her. My heart breaks with her. As a mom of a fourth grader, I wanted to cry for her. She goes home upset and tells her mom what happened. This is when Sophia’s mom suggests writing Amber a letter and to let her know how her mean actions are affecting her. What does this letter say? Will Amber be nicer or continue to bully Sophia after reading the letter.

Sophia Writes to Her Bully is one children’s book that I believe every parent should give to their children. It would be a perfect opportunity for a parent and child to discuss what happens to Sophia and possibly even discuss their own issues dealing with a bully. Also, it gives them a chance to discuss how Sophia dealt with it and see how it helped in the end.

Sophia Writes to Her Bully includes wonderful illustrations. They are beautiful and colorful that children would find appealing. I personally enjoyed them myself.

In addition to the story, Sophia Writes to Her Bully includes at the end of the book, the following:
An in depth definition of bullying
Facts about bullying
Tips for students, parents, and school personnel how to deal with bullying
Resources for those who have experienced bullying that parents can use
Bullying Statistics

I am highly recommending Sophia Writes to Her Bully for all parents and their young children. I believe many would find this book relatable and useful. I will be donating my copy to my children’s school library so others in their school to read it, as well.

I give Sophia Writes to Her Bully a well deserved five plus stars.

Publisher: Quentorex Studios
Release date: April 11, 2017
Tour dates: Oct 1 to 31, 2018
Content Rating: PG + M (No explicit sex scenes or bad language)

Book Description for Retribution:

In a war-torn galaxy, Jazrene Vallo, the supreme spiritual leader of the Marium Kahnet, is close to fulfilling her divine destiny: refashion the Order as a beacon of light. But her plans for the sisterhood to become the official ambassadors of peace are compromised when she is forced to send mercenaries to capture rogue elements of the sisterhood seeking revenge against those responsible for murdering their families. Failure to capture them will bring an irreversible blemish upon the sisterhood. Unbeknownst to her, it may be too late to stop them.

After fifteen years of methodical planning and burrowing into the highly classified Leviathan project, the cadre of vengeful sisters are ready to execute their mission. Their goal: to destroy the Stadageos, vast military testing and bio-engineering bases where the twisted machinations of fallen creation formed the ungodly fierce races of Leviathans.

My Review
Retribution is the start of R J Amezcua’s Mantis Force: Marium Kahnet series. This book is far from the genre I usually like to read. However, it is, also, a perfect reason why other readers should try other genres. One may actually enjoy something new. This was the case for me. I thought Retribution was a pretty good read. Because I am not used to the fantasy fiction genre, I did find myself a little lost or confused at times. I did finally catch on half way through. I am interested where the story goes in the rest of the series. 

Retribution has a lot to offer for many readers to enjoy. Such as: mystery and suspense, likeable characters, a lot of action and adventure, and, my favorite, message from a Christian perspective. The plot was great that kept me interested. The book is not very long, so I had no problem having it read in one sitting.

I am giving Retribution three and a half stars. I recommend this story for those who enjoy a good, clean book in the Christian Fantasy Fiction genre. In my opinion, I believe it is definitely worth a read. I am interested in finding out where else R J Amezcua’s imagination will take him to next. It is obvious to me he has great talent and will have no problem releasing more fascinating stories. I look forward to see what happens in the second installment from his Mantis Force: Marium Kahnet series, Decimation. 

I recommend this good book, Retribution.
