Forsaking All Others by Allison Pittman- Don't Miss This Book!

Camilla Fox escaped the home of her husband Nathan and her new sister wife Amanda leaving behind her two children and the home she had known since leaving the home of her parents. When she is found near frozen by Colonel Brandon and his soldiers as they take extra care to see to her safety and comfort. She knows she must return for her daughters to save them from the same life she had succumbed to when she was a teenager. But with uncertainty of her fate looming nothing can prepare her for what she finds when she reaches Salt Lake City to reclaim her daughters, realizing this may be the greatest challenge yet that she has ever faced.
I was excited to read this next book in the series as I was with the first one, Time and Eternity. The author has a way of telling a story and drawing the readers deep into the novel. This one will certainly "grab you" and have you reading late into the night! I enjoyed meeting new characters as well as catching up with ones from the first book. Highly entertaining and a book you certainly won't want to miss. This one could be a stand alone novel even though it is part of a series. The overall message is inspiring and I would highly recommend this novel to others. Very Well Written. Tyndale House Publishers provided a complimentary copy to me for my review.

The Scroll by Grant R Jeffrey, Alton L Gansky- Everything I Expected and More!

David Chambers renowned Biblical Archaeologist, is a man who has lost his faith and is searching for something crucial in his life. Abram Ben-Judah, an old friend contacts him and asks him to come back to the Holy Land for one final dig, to unearth the treasures of the Copper Scroll. Funding has come from a benefactor, a great supporter of Biblical Archaelogy and David finds himself working alongside other members at the dig site, who are not of his choosing including Amber, his fiancee. The treasures in the tunnels await the explorers, but is the ultimate cost worth the price that must be paid?

Mr. Gansky is a favorite author of mine and this book did not disappoint! Danger and intrigue along with interactive dialogue, excellent character development, twists and turns, and realistic scenery await the reader! As I was reading The Scroll I was reminded of possibly an Indiana Jones movie sitting on the edge of the seat and I felt as if I were there with the characters experiencing what they did. I learned quite a bit about archaelogy from this book and I was challenged in my faith. But don't expect to finish this book in one sitting plan three or four uninterupped evenings and let the authors take you on a fascinating journey. I would highly recommend this book! Very well written!!! I received this book for free from Waterbrook Multnomah Publishers for my review.
