A Variety of Good Things to Read

I like to read about a lot of things. I hope you find something to enjoy.


The Mayflower bride by Kimberley Woodhouse. A story of the trials of the Mayflower voyage, with tales of faith, persecution and love.


Imposter by Davis Bunn. Bunn is a master weaver in this book of suspense, drawing many threads and skillfully weaving them together, a story full of action and surprises.


In the field of grace by Tessa Afshar. A beautiful retelling of the book of Ruth. Boaz and Ruth’s love story, their growing faith in God, and how God brings them joy from their sorrow.


Full Disclosure by Dee Henderson. A great story of friendship and marriage, suspense and surprises to the end.


The Seeds of Change by Lauraine Snelling. A touching story of a family’s trip west on a wagon train after the Civil War, and of the home they find in Nebraska.


Chasing Shadows by Lynn Austin. An incredible novel of the Netherlands during World War II, from 1939 to 1945. Stories of families, their losses and survival, working to save Jews and others in danger, and how they learned again how not to hate. 


  1. Thanks for giving up a heads-up on more good books to read. You forgot to mention my new release though. LOL

    1. Sharon, sorry. We'll need to take care of that.:) From Kathy

  2. Hi Kathy. Wow, I wish I had time to read all of these recommended books! There are just too many books and never enough time.

    As for the fun thing I did this week, I talked to a group of 8th grade students about patriotism and the ways we at the VFW Auxiliary support and assist veterans. I was able to share about our Patriot's Pen essay contest which is open to all students in grades 6-8. The students were engaged and asked questions. I thoroughly enjoyed talking with them. I see such promise in so many of our teens as they prepare for their role as adults!

    1. Patti, that sounds like fun. Thank you. From Kathy

  3. Hi Kathy! Hearing about your new car brought fond memories for me as Keith drove a 1968 blue VW, affectionately named "George", when we met! He even proposed in that car!
    Our fun continues in our new house, with contractors coming to complete work and brand-new furniture in our bedroom, after 45 years of inherited, big clunky furniture.
    Today, we are going to Rolla, MO, to visit with Darryl and Robin, as well as Marleen (Brinkmann) Anderson.
    Lotts of Love to all your family

  4. Oh my. Sounds like getting away from the house is a good idea.:) From Kathy
