A Biblical fiction of Rahab. It's a story of redemption and forgiveness of self.

I am in a reading funk; tried both of these books and just can't get into them. l think they'd be good books to read. I might have to try again someday, but just not right now.

Short stories of Ms Lewis's life and the lesson she learned. Christian non-fiction.

I enjoyed the stories as they brought back memories growing up on a dairy farm in rural North Dakota however I didn't like how she told the story talking to her daughter that she chose never to conceive. I still recommend though.

Loved this book. Dual timelines of two women who loved and lost and then lost memories. All the characters were loveable.

If you're looking for fantastic writing this isn't it, but the stories within were interesting if your fascinated by humanity. I enjoyed the read.

Note: foul language

Reader6691 I love foul language warnings. Thanks. I wish there was a content rating system for books like there is for movies. 3w
InnerSavvy @Reader6691 I like knowing about language, violence, and sexual contact too. 3w

This is classified as a historical fiction in most places but I would not call it that. To me it's more of a literary fiction family drama with a little bit of romance and mystery thrown in. It was entertaining to listen to. Note: language, explicit sexual scene, and violence

I read this book because I wanted to hear her take on Scientology. Overall it was okay and I'm glad I read it l. Sometimes hard to follow the Scientology system.

Victoriahoperose If you‘re interested more in the history and implementation of Scientology there is another book called going clear which was very informative and infuriating! 1mo

I probably shouldn't have read this book. I didn't really like her first one but was hopeful. Unfortunately our theology doesn't match, so I struggled listening to it.

Good memoir of having her brain attacked by her immune system. Scary yet encouraging that there is hope.

Another great story by Katy Ganshert. Two sisters both trying to find themselves. It might have been more poignant because of the one sister having so many miscarriages.

A well written story of a young girl coming of age in the early 1900s in Brooklyn. Loved her as a character and loved the bluntness of the Mom. Joy, laughter and tears.

Excellent book. First part is her life during WWII. The second is life after and third, my favorite, is how to heal.

"Maybe to heal isn't to erase the scar, or even to make a scar. To heal is to cherish the wound."

A small book to make you think about clutter...what it is, how you view it, how to tackle it. This is not a how-to, more philosophy than how-to. Recommend if you like thinking about what makes you, you and if you like Rubin's style.

I have read this author before. She does a great job of taking facts that are known in history and creating a story around them. The story about Jefferson's son with his slave was beautifully done. Young adults and adults should I read it.

This was a plodding that made me feel heavy. it fits with what the story was about, but I struggled to get through it. It may be for you if you like a dystopian novel. This book should have made me really think about ethics but it didn't.
