I got to enjoy giving another review for a book. This one was for Amy Walsh’s book, A MISPLACED BEAUTY. It is a great book for anyone who loves period romances. It takes place in Victorian England, and the author manages to leave you with a good feel for what life was like for the upper class young women of that era. Georgina, the main protagonist, is a young woman living in Victorian London and enjoying the debutante season there. Struggling against her own poor choices and the expectations of her family and the society she lives in, she tries to find marital happiness for herself. What made the book more interesting is that the story is based on the actual diary of a young woman found during the restoration of one of the homes from that time period. The book has a strong Christian theme, and I enjoyed the chapters which brought in two famous ministers from that day, Dwight Moody and Charles Spurgeon. Overall, a clean romance and interesting read. The book is available on Amazon.com.
Hope everyone is having a good day! Below is a book review I had the privilege of doing for the author, Felicity Abbott. The book is available on Amazon and is a good read for teens and their parents.
This an interesting and well written story with a strong message about an issue, bullying, that is present in all of our schools, both public, and in this book, private. Parents can feel safe about their teenager reading this book as it is a good clean read and brings out the Christian value of treating one another the way you would like to be treated. I liked the main character, Lacy, a young teenager. Written in a believable way, she is a victim of bullying along with several of her friends. The story shows how difficult it is for teenagers to know how to handle a bullying situation by themselves, and how important it is for parents to stay close to their children and to know what is going on in their lives. It also depicts how devastating the effects of bullying can be for some children. Again, this is a good read for any teen and their parents on a subject which is so common in our society among our teenagers.
