A Strike to the Heart by Danielle Grandinetti
Historical novel set in Wisconsin in the 1930s. Check out my post on Instagram.
A Rose for the Resistance by Angela K. Couch
Part of the Heroines of WWII series, though each book is a stand-alone story. Read my review.
A Healer’s Promise by Misty M. Beller
Book 2 in the Brides of Laurent series. Read my review.
Aunt Jane of Kentucky by Eliza Calvert Hall
One of my cousins told me about Aunt Jane at Christmastime. Highly entertaining! Not to mention, a fascinating glimpse of a bygone era. Apparently in the public domain because the Kindle version is free.
The Bear by Jamie Lee Grey
Book 1 of the Mystery Babylon series. Speculates on a possible future for America if things continue the way they are.
Eternal by J.P. Ramzy
Intriguing “left behind” storyline but it had some gaps that made it hard to follow. It’s the first in a trilogy but I’m not sure I’ll read the others.
Wisdom for Beekeepers by James E. Tew
Rebecca picked this one out for me at the library when I asked her to get me a book on beekeeping. Maybe not the most complete book on the subject, but some good information.
The Book of Lost Friends by Lisa Wingate
Such a great story… and this is one that is further enhanced by the voices reading the audiobook.
The Economic Collapse Chronicles by Mark Goodwin
I’m currently following a year-long Bible reading plan on the YouVersion app called Four Streams. It goes through the Old Testament once, the New Testament 4 times, Psalms twice, and Proverbs 3 times over the course of a year. These are the books I completed in April:
- I Peter
- II Peter
