  • "A Delicate Glimpse of Medieval Jewi..."

    Overall

    I've read several historical novels of this period in which the Jews were treated as pariahs. When I saw this story, told through the eyes of a 12 year old girl, the granddaughter of a famous rabbi, I was immediately attracted. The conflicting emotions that Elvina feels are told skilfully by the author (a niece of Simone Weil) and interpreted brilliantly by the narrator. This is a beautiful tale that should not only be read by the target audience of 10 to 15 year old girls, but by anyone who enjoys a heartwarming message. It shows that reaching out to understand and help someone who is very different from oneself brings unexpected blessings.

    In France in the year 1096, everyone in the Jewish community is terrified of the Crusaders, who have been known to burn Jewish houses in the name of religion. One cold Sabbath afternoon, while 12-year-old Elvina is alone in the house, three soldiers pound on her door. One of them is wounded. Elvina has only a moment to make a difficult choice that could put her family and the entire community at risk. Can her guardian angel guide her now?

  • There You'll Find Me

    "A humorous and heartbreaking read"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    I was also given an advanced reader copy of it last year. I can’t believe that I waited so long to get to this book. It absolutely blew me away.

    Finley was such a real character; she grieved in more ways than one and with no one to really turn to (especially in a foreign country), she looked for her faith in the landscape of Ireland, where her murdered brother, Will, felt closest to his own faith. She struggled to understand the beauty that Will saw while he studied abroad, and my heart ached for her as she missed the importance and beauty of life in the present. This girl was broken in a way that no one but herself would be able to fix. The pacing for her story was absolutely perfect; nothing ever felt rushed – feelings and relationships developed naturally.

    The minor characters of this story were also so clear in my mind – the mother of your closest friend who treats you like one of her own, in this case the host-mom. The best friend who only wants what’s best for you. The mean girl at school. They were “stereotypic” characters written in a way that was unconventionally conventional. What I’m trying to say is that they were written well and weren’t just cookie cutter characters meant to be place holders for real people. The host family of Sean, Nora, Liam, and Erin – with all of their strange quirks (Liam and his legos!) and their quaint family-run Bed and Breakfast made the environment feel warm and cozy. And the setting of Ireland itself whisked me away to a world of accents, stews, and Celtic crosses.

    There was also more than one plot going on in this book and each was intricately woven into Finley’s story and gave her such a three-dimensional feel. I didn’t feel jerked back and forth between all of the plots and people, and enjoyed every moment of the book while I was in it yet still itched to find out what happened next in the other plots. It really drove home the point that Finely’s life wasn’t all about ONE thing (a cute boy, acing a final, grieving, finding her faith, etc) but that she had to handle all of these things at the same time, much like real life. And the faith portion of the book was incorporated in a way that didn’t feel “preachy” or overly-religious.

    Does the whole “movie star falls for girl-next-door” thing sound cheesy? Perhaps, but don’t pretend like you haven’t enjoyed a story like that before! Besides, this is so much more than that.

    There You’ll Find Me was a humorous and heartbreaking read. It made me laugh, it made me cry, it made me feel. I highly recommend this book to contemporary lovers, especially if you enjoyed The Fault in Our Stars by John Green or The Piper’s Son by Melina Marchetta.

  • "Great for road trips"

    1 of 1 helpful votes

    The entire Left Behind Kids series is an excellent listen for longer road trips. My children (12, 10) enjoyed each volume, and it was entertaining for myself as well. I am thrilled to support Christian based entertainment when it is well done, and the performance style of this series holds your attention.

    It should be noted that I have not read any of the books prior to listening to these dramatized versions???kind of like watching a movie before reading the book, there are probably some artistic liberties taken.
