I know it has been quite a while. I hope to post more often this year as I have been slacking lately. I thank you guys for hanging in there. I will post articles again soon I just want you to know that these are three books that are notable and must be read. And just by coincidence they are all female authors. Now while the first one selected is well-known and popular the other two you can most likely find on Amazon or Barnes & Noble by ordering them.
I last posted this kind of review back in April two years ago so I really have to catch up!
And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie. (Originally under a different title) Published 1939
A definite classic! Ten strangers are invited to a party but eventually a horrific series of deaths plagues them. The murderer is a mystery. All they know is each person dies by the line of the respective nursery rhyme that is located at each of the guest’s bedrooms. Who is the clever but evil person about? And why does the person feel what they are doing is right as the person believes they are bringing their sins they got away with to light and they must die for it. This book will keep you guessing. And it has one of the best twists in some of the greatest literature out there. Warning though. Very violent.
Confessions of a Prodigal Daughter by Sarahbeth Caplin. Published 2012.
Wonderful and amazing. This young Jewish woman had to go through a lot growing up. It was bad enough she lived in a heavily conservative environment where the Catholic boys ridiculed her beliefs but she started to believe and be interested in this person called Christ. Then because of that she feared of being a “stranger” to her own family. This non-fiction story of a personal journey is poignant and very thought-provoking. It goes from telling a story to bringing up points only a Christian professor would think about but this is Sarahbeth’s story and it must be read.
Frozen Footprints by Therese Heckenkamp. Published 2012.
I love the clever title as well as the story within. The title takes the “Footprints in the sand” poem and gives it a cold, daunting spin. A twin goes out to search for her male twin brother when her own grandfather is too stubborn to believe he is even in trouble. Her plight leads her to a nightmare she might never forget as she falls into the hands of a cruel man planning to benefit from their rich old guardian. After the opening scene grabs you the story pulls you in, taking you on a crazy ride that you will not want to forget. The story is about a Catholic girl who is thrust into a situation that might make her question why with her rich grandfather she lived such a responsible free life. Reading this book will make you ask over and over: “Why isn’t this a movie?!”
