Their Frontier Family

Their Frontier Family by Lyn Cote

 This is one of two books I purchased for myself because this month I turn 66. I had been wanting this one since I read about it in the Loved Inspired News several months ago. I
normally read the Loved Inspired Suspence which I get from the readers service.

 But this one caught by eye, just the cover made me want to read it. Then I read a bit about the book. It was great, love the scenes Ms Cote descibes, takes you right into the story. I really liked Noah's character, and her beautiful writing style keep me reading, and I loved the outcome of the story.  Great read.
 

Marrying the Major

Marrying the Major by Victoria Bylin
This was really a good book, loved it. Great characters, great scenes,
even the emotions of the story people were good. I wish she would do a
sequel to it, showing their lives in England and the how they solved
 the problems of being Lords and Ladies with Gods help after his father
 was so nasty to people there.

The Black Box


I had gotten her several boxes of jiffy mixes, cakes, icing, muffins, etc. for Christmas to help her learn to cook. The kid was sitting with her back to the chest of drawers when he came into the bedroom screaming at her, he hit her head and caused it to knock up against the chest, he punched her with his middle knuckle again in the knees and  head, over and over.  Screamed at her to get out, she was thirteen and before he started in on her, she was sticking her finger in the box of jiffy mix icing she got for Christmas and eating it. The darn box cost 10 cents. He was always punching her like that leaving bruises and bumps on her. And what really got to me is that the marriage counselor told her to go live with him. SOB.
