I love books. You know that already. I've got a backlog of books to share, so today's post is the first of three for June. After all, it's the season of the beach read, isn't it? Enjoy!

BROKEN Roni Askey-Doran: Women's Fiction

Broken is infused with an absolutely authentic voice that gives the hidden thoughts of the abused and emotionally ill a chance to speak for themselves. A must read. 

GOING THROUGH THE CHANGE Samantha Bryant: Women's Fiction/Fantasy

Going Through the Change is chock full of black humor that skewers the twin notions that menopausal women aren't as good as younger women and that menopause is a disease that must be treated. Bryant's ladies are superheroes. Read this one if you are postmenopausal, perimenopausal, or a long way from "the change." 

THE WOOD'S EDGE Lori Benton: Historical Christian Fiction

Lori Benton's done it again! The Wood's Edge is a page turner full of 3-D characters. Their stories tell of courage, fear, forgiveness, and belief. A Wonderful Must Read Book! All of Lori Benton's books make belief an integral part of the character, not an afterthought, or a values lesson. That takes true inspiration. 

THE ROBE Lloyd Douglas: Christian Historical Fiction

This is a classic story of old Rome and the spread of the story of the Galilean who turned the world upside down. Wonderful, inspirational read.

I hope you find something you want to read, but if not, there's more where these came from...next week. ;-)


  1. I've only read one of these, the rest are going on the list.

  2. Yay for Lori! Darn it, I have to get that one. So behind!

  3. Going Through the Change sounds good! I'll have to look that one up.

  4. Going through the change sounds like a hoot.
    Wasn't The Robe made into a movie years ago, or am I thinking of something else?
    Nice to meet you Zan Marie.

    1. Going through the Change Is a hoot, Sandra! And yes, The Robe was made into a movie long ago. My mother still talks about it. In fact, her desire to reread this one led me to read it for the first time.
