Summer is here! One thing I love about summer is having time to relax and dive into a good book. I wanted to beef up my “to be read” pile and asked a few of my fellow writers what books they loved and would recommend. Here they are:
Once Upon a Prince by Rachel Hauck
Every young woman wants to be swept away by a handsome prince! Rachel’s writing is fun and delightful!
After the Leaves Fall by Nicole Baart
This is a beautifully written coming of age piece that has stayed with me long after I put the book down. Baart writes with gritty beauty, and her characters are flawed but amazingly real.
Promises to Keep by Ann Tatlock:
Our book club recently read this wonderful novel. Ann’s writing is simple yet profoundly elegant as she tells the story of two little girls and their dreams to reunite with their absentee fathers.
Hacker by Ted Dekker
Hacker is a modern-day allegory that will open your eyes to the world all around us that God longs for us to see.
Full Steam Ahead by Karen Witemeyer
Full Steam Ahead is a fun historical romance build around some interesting historical facts and a very unique hero and heroine that will make you smile as well as think.
Insight by Deborah Raney
I know it’s a few years old, but it still speaks to me with a fresh voice, deep characters and believable challenges we might face someday.
Restoration by Wanda Dyson
A fascinating look at the problems, human and spiritual, in restoring an abandoned church.
The Book Thief by Makus Zusak
A masterful story that weaves a young girl’s passion for books during a time in Germany when many books were outlawed.
The Turning by Davis Bunn
I suggest it because it’s a multi-layered, high drama story with compelling characters who each hear a voice they must decide whether to obey or not.
A Table at the Window by Hilary Manton Lodge
I LOVED Hilary Manton Lodge’s A Table at the Window. I loved the food, family and romance that Lodge writes about so well.
