these are just a few of the books I've enjoyed recently.
You're the one that I want: a Christiansen family novel by Susan May Warren. Beautiful descriptions of grace.
Sequoia Scout by Brock and Bodie Thoene, breath-stopping adventure in California when it still belonged to Mexico.
Between Sundays, by Karen Kingsbury, football and foster kids, fathers and sons.
War room: prayer is a powerful weapon by Chris Fabry. Written from the 2015 movie, story of prayer as a weapon to save a troubled marriage.
The other Wes Moore: one name, two fates by Wes Moore. Two young men, African American, approximately the same age, from similar neighborhoods in Baltimore. Both grew up without a father in their homes. They grew up to follow two drastically different lives. The author provides a detailed list of organizations which serve and help young people in trouble.
Tiger in the sea: the ditching of Flying Tiger 923 and the desperate struggle for survival by Eric Lindner. A fascinating account of an airplane which had to make a forced landing in the North Atlantic in 1962, and heartwarming stories of survivors’ lives after.
All these books sound great! You gave enough of a description I want to buy (or at least look them up in the library!) them all!
Thank you, Amy. I got them all from BARD, Library for the Blind.Delete
Putting yourself into the roles of the characters can be exciting in a way you can't achieve by watching a movie or TV show. It does work. Thanks for the reminder Kathy.ReplyDelete
Kathy, all of these sound like good reads! I think I would especially enjoy the story of the airplane disaster since I have always loved to fly. (No, sadly, I never got to pilot a plane - just fly in several!). Sequoia Scout would be a close second for me. I have read a book by Brock and Bodie in quite some time. Thank you for sharing!ReplyDelete
I love books by the Thoenes.:)Delete
Wow, I loved your recommendations for books to read!! One that I loved (but haven't read for years) is Unbroken. It took 2 movies to cover the entire story of Louie Zamperini, so IMHO, the book is better.ReplyDelete
Thank you, Kathy, for these recommendations!! :)
I read the story of Louis Zamperiniand liked it too.Delete
Thank you for these recommendations! I also loved Unbroken and would highly recommend it. It took 2 movies to incorporate the entire book, so just read the book. :)ReplyDelete
I liked Unbroken also.Delete
Very good books. I'm filling my ebook library for the time I have radiation. Good suggestions. Thanks.ReplyDelete
Oh! Thank you for these descriptions, Kathy.ReplyDelete
They sound like books I would enjoy.
