Christian's Hope by Ervin R. Stutzman Book Review

Christian’s Hope (Herald Press, October 2016)
When Christian Hochstetler returns to the Amish after seven years in captivity, he finds that many things have shifted.
Captured as a child during the French and Indian War, Christian has spent much of his life among Native Americans, who cared for him and taught him their ways. Now that Christian is home, his father wants him to settle back into their predictable Amish life of farming, and Christian’s budding friendship with Orpha Rupp beckons him to stay as well.
Yet Christian feels restless, and he misses his adoptive Native American family—who raised him as their own son. When faced with a life-altering decision, will Christian choose the Amish identity that his father desires for him? Or will he depart from his family and faith community yet again?
Christian’s Hope tells the story of the younger brother of Joseph and son of Jacob, whom readers have come to love in the first two books in the Return to Northkill series. Based on actual events and written by a descendant of the Hochstetler family, Christian’s Hope brings the sweeping epic of the Return to Northkill series to a soul-stirring end.

My review:

This is Book Three in the Return to Northkill series by Ervin R. Stutzmann. What happens to a young boy when he is captured by Native Americans during the French and Indian War. Will he ever again be able to go back to living as an Amish person? In seven years he has really missed a lot. His father wants it to be like it was before. Even though he was captured he was treated well by his other family and he feels their absence in his life. Which way will Christian pick for his future? Will he be able to remain Amish?  I liked this story and I liked the characters. I am giving this book a 5/5. I was given this book by Litfuse Publicity Group and all opinions are mine.

Where Hope Prevails by Janette Oke and Laurel Oke Logan Book Review

Where Hope Prevails by Janette Oke and Laurel Oke Logan

When Beth Thatcher returns to Coal Valley, she has much to be thankful for: her school is expanding, and she hopes to marry the man she loves in the spring. But soon, a new teacher who openly rejects God gives her cause for concern, as do new challenges in her relationship with Jarrick.

My review;

Authors Janette Oke and Laurel Oke Logan have written another great story. Elizabeth Thatcher has come back to Coal Valley after she has been with her family who are somewhere else. She is going back to her students and her friends. One of them is Jarrick Thornton a Mountie who she thinks is going to ask her to marry him. She does not like the fact however, that he is always away from home. Beth believes that he should be around more. Beth is not at all certain what she is going to do. Beth is trying to be strong but, will that be enough for them to have any kind of future? I am giving this book a 4/5, and all opinions are mine.

Without Warning by Lynette Eason Review

Without Warning

by Lynette Eason

Intensity. Skill. Tenacity.
The bodyguards of Elite Guardians Agency have it all.

Katie Singleton, a partner with the Elite Guardians Protection Agency, stumbles upon her next assignment quite by accident. Spotting blue lights at a familiar restaurant, she stops to investigate, only to discover that owner Daniel Matthews has become the target of someone who will go to any lengths to put him out of business.

Daniel might be concerned, but he's not convinced that a bodyguard--and a female one at that--is necessary. A new attack and his niece's urgings are enough to make him reconsider. He and Katie must figure out who's behind the intimidation and threats--before a would-be killer strikes again.

My review:

This is the second book in the "Elite Guardians" series by author Lynette Eason. Daniel Matthews owns a restaurant and there is someone who is trying to make him close it down. He is not afraid though. Katie Singleton who is a partner in the guardians discovers that he is in trouble when she sees blue lights in the restaurant. Daniel is finally convinced that he needs a protector by his niece and after he is attacked again. They will have to work together to catch the suspects. Will she be able to keep him safe, even if she is a woman? Will they ever find the criminals? I was given this book for a review. I give this book a 4/5. They are my opinions.
