Well, it's finally spring and know how I can tell? Why, the Spring Reading Thing is finally here. Katrina at Callipider Days has set up a Mr. Linky so that we can
snoopcheck out and see what everybody else has on their lists. I'm telling you, I got so many book ideas from the Fall into Reading Challenge that my To Read Booklist is a mile long. And some of those are on my spring list.
So without further ado I present my book list for the Spring Reading Thing.
This was one that was on a lot of your fall reading lists. So I'm giving it a go. From the back cover: ...in 1964, when a blizzard forces Dr. David Henry to deliver his own twins. His son, born first, is perfectly healthy, but the doctor immediately recognizes that his daughter has Down syndrome. For motives he tells himself are good, he makes a split-second decision that will haunt all their lives forever. He asks his nurse to take the baby away to an institution. Instead, she disappears into another city to raise the child as her own.
I've heard a lot of great things about this book. From the back cover: "...focuses on the model and guidance provided by God the Father - the ultimate child and family expert. ...a map for learning to see ourselves and our children through God's limitless tenderness-to raise our kids the way God raises us.
Highly recommended by the salesclerk at my local Christian bookstore. From the back cover: "Paige Williams slips into her hot tub in the blackness of night - and finds herself face to face with death. Alone, terrified, fleeing a dark past, Paige must make an unthinkable choice." Got your attention? Hee. Brandilyn's books have been coined as "seatbelt suspense". I'm looking forward to reading Brandilyn's work for the first time.
Another of my favorite authors. From the back cover: "...A blend of the movies Castaway and The Big Chill, with a touch of the television series Lost, creatively thrown together with the biblical story of the beggar Lazarus and C.S. Lewis's The Great Divorce." -Publisher's Weekly
The authors share personal secrets of multiplying love in any marriage relationship.
Another favorite author. The sheriff of Justice, Illinois, is hunting a killer and he's not pleased when a detective representing one of the victim's families comes to town as she might very well be the next victim.
Wow, looks like I really stacked the deck with favorite authors this time around. Maybe that'll guarantee I can meet my challenge.
