The Ebb TideThe Ebb Tide by Beverly  Lewis
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Beverly Lewis writes The Ebb Tide

I like reading stories of the amish , seeing their faith in everyday life and relationships along the way.
In this story Sallie is a dreamer, always wanting to see far away places and she has taken a job to save monies hoping to do just that. She puts off joining church so she can have an adventure before she settles down.
When a young man in the community needs financial help for surgery, Sallie knows she cannot just save for a trip -she must help-she gives up her dream and helps.
Later an opportunity comes for her to be a nanny near a beach and she things seeing the ocean will be her adventure. She is to live with the family for the summer and help with the baby and his sister.
While there she meets a mennonite young man that she soon forms a friendship with.
Should we put ourselves in a relationship that we know is not where we should be? She would not have had a dilema in her life if she had not let herself get close to this young man BUT was it wrong or right?
Choices must be made in life and we have to be responsible about them.

I received this book from Bethany House publishing for an honest review. Thank you.

Bread of AngelsBread of Angels by Tessa Afshar


Bread of Angels by Tessa Afshar

I enjoy reading about bibical stories in fictional style. I can picture Lydia living everyday life and falling in love with a charming man, then to find out he and his mother had plans that were to hurt Lydia and her father was so sad. Trust is a big issue and when it is broken life takes on a different outlook.
I felt along with Lydia the betrayal. I admired the way she moved in a different direction yet still made purple and did well as a woman in the trade.
thanks Tessa for your research and the work you put into this book.
