JewelofPersiafront

Today it's a real pleasure to review the latest release of my writing peer, and publisher, Roseanna White.

One of the many things I like about WhiteFire is they publish books that some would call edgy Christian fiction–I prefer the term, realistic.

The wrong things happen in life, and that's why we need the Savior. But in WhiteFire Publishing, while these issues happen within the story, the story must always point back to the need for Jesus Christ to wash away our sins. That's what happens within the pages of Jewel of Persia which I rated 5 stars.

Simply salsaSimply Salsa

“Picture yourself seated in a comfortable chair. A luscious Latin melody dances in the background as you spend a few hours with a dear friend. Her smile embraces you like a warm hug. Her openness encourages you to share your heart. And her words of wisdom challenge you to follow the God of boundless love.

This golden afternoon mirrors the experience of reading Janet Perez Eckles’ Simply Salsa: Dancing Without Fear at God’s Fiesta. The book takes a refreshing look at the Christ-life—with a unique Latina flair. Authenticity drives this project, whose author shares her wisdom through real-life stories with a sprinkling of Spanish (translations provided).

The choices and challenges Eckles has faced include everything from life in a new land and language at the vulnerable age of twelve to the crushing loss of an adult son to the heartbreaking news of her own impending blindness.

Reader-focused questions and challenges enhance the book’s conversational feel. The author’s gentle humor and transparency allow readers to learn and laugh without finger-pointing or lectures.

Reader-focused questions and challenges enhance the book’s conversational feel. 

 

As one recent reader said, ‘Janet may be blind, but something tells me she sees more than most of us’.”

When her husband goes away on a business trip and the kids are sent off to the grandparents for a month, Rachelle heads back to Jubilant, Texas, to visit family and reconnect with her past, her purpose, and herself.

Petticoat ranchPetticoat Ranch, by Mary Connealy

I'm not normally a big fan of frontier historicals, but Mary Connealy has blessed heroine Sophie Edwards with the heart of a modern woman. If you've ever struggled with the whole "submissive wife" concept (and who hasn't?), you'll identify with Sophie right away. I'd like to see this story in movie form, especially the climactic scene, with all the been-there-done-that nuances between the Edwards girls as they take on the bad guys. LOTS of fun.
