    Winner of the 2001 Christy Award, Lynn Austin captures the turmoil of the Civil War in this stirring novel. From vast plantations to the cramped closets of the Underground Railroad, it follows one young woman's inspiring journey of risk and sacrifice.

    Very inspiring book. Going through some tough times in my own life and this story truly helped to renew my faith and strength. Excellent encouragement in the worst of times.

    This is how wars are fought now: by children, hopped-up on drugs and wielding AK-47s. Children have become soldiers of choice. In the more than 50 conflicts going on worldwide, it is estimated that there are some 300,000 child soldiers. Ishmael Beah used to be one of them. This is a rare and mesmerizing account, told with real literary force and heartbreaking honesty.

    Overall

    This is a very disturbing revelation of how children are abused in our world today. I had heard about children soldiers but didn't fully understand that they were running and hiding to survive, to avoid being taken. The fact that their own citizens made them outcasts out of fear made you want to scream. Thank God that there are people trying to make a difference. I for one am investigating how I can help.

    Fragrant blossoms herald spring, but the orchard is also a place of secrets and heartache. After the death of her husband Frank, Eliza is left with three young children and mounting debts. When a gentle stranger enters her orchard, she experiences a peculiar sensation of familiarity with the man. But will his unknown past jeopardize all that she has fought for?

    Overall

    I've just discovered Christian Fiction. Figured romance novels with God sprinkled in. Just pray and you'll get your man. So wrong! This book and her others are filled with drama, real life issues, challenges that we all face in one way or another. It shows how God moves in the background, how things that appear coincidental are truly scripted by God. I'm a King and Koontz fan and still am entertained and moved by this author.

    Raised on a South Carolina plantation as the house pet of her white master's daughter, Kitty never made a decision for herself. Now, as a young adult, she must preserve her faith while making the biggest decision ever: stay with her master and go south to avoid the Yankees or run away tonight to the North with Grady, the field slave she has come to love.

    Overall

    Loved this book. While it gives the reader a much clearer view into the dehumanization of being a slave (things you would never even think about) it shows how God moves in our lives and what comfort trust and faith can bring. This is one of the best books I've downloaded. The writing puts you right there. Concerned it might be a cheesy romance novel, but not at all, very profound.
