The Governess of Highland Hall by Carrie Turansky

I enjoyed this introduction to an author that I had not previously heard of and look forward to reading more from her.  This book tells the story of Julia Foster who once worked as a missionary with her parents and due to circumstances winds up taking a job as a governess.  She finds the job to be challenging not only due to her position that is not quite a servant, but not family either.  She also finds her charges to be a challenge and does not get a lot of help from the master of the house.  This book shows how she manages to work things out while still holding onto who she is.

Fired Up by Mary Connealy

I really enjoy reading books by Mary Connealy and this one is no exception.  Fired up tells the story of Glynna and how she is determined to make it on her own as well as take care of her children.  Dare is the town doctor who has helped Glynna out, but seems to find trouble of his own. It is a great read and I want to thank Bethany House for providing me a copy to read.

The Secret Keeper by Beverly Lewis

Having read the other books in this series, I greatly enjoyed getting to read this one as well. It tells the story of Jennifer Burns leaving her English family and making the steps to join the Amish Church. It tells of how she adjusts and comes to really understand the ways of the Amish. Also the stories of other characters from previous books including Katie Lapp and her family. I received this book to review from Bethany House Publishers.

For Every Season by Cindy Woodsmall

This is another great book in the Amish Vines and Orchard's Series.  Rhoda has taken her talents with growing to Maine and is working hard to get the new orchard growing, but her relationship with Jacob has become more strained.  This book details how they work on their relationship and how others can can play a part in working things out.  I highly recommend this book as well as the others in the series.  More from the author can be found at www.cindywoodsmall.com
