Out of the Dark Blog Tou.png

Good morning! Today, I have the privilege of being part of MacKenzie Morganthal’s blog tour. She is the author of two books, both dealing with Human Trafficking. I reviewed the first book a few weeks ago and today, I am reviewing her newest book which happens to be the sequel of Not Abandoned.

Not Abandoned: A Review

Title: Not Abandoned
Written By: MacKenzie Morganthal
Genre: Christian Suspense
Recommended Ages: 13 & up (due to the topic, not the content)

Introduction:

Human trafficking. It’s something that most people don’t talk about, but it happens every day. Maybe you know someone who just disappeared and was never heard from again.

Where Dandelions Grow: A Review

Today I am privileged to have a new book on my blog. Not mine, you’ll have to be a little more patient for that, sorry. Hopefully November, but don’t quote me on that. This book is by an author I have seen around here and there, but never really connected with until she emailed me about 1 1/2 months ago. It was fun getting to know her a bit and now I’ve also had the honor to read her new book and review it here. But first, a little about the book.

About the Book

What happens when your world falls apart and your dreams are mocked by those closest to you?

Destiny’s idyllic childhood full of laughter and cousins abruptly ended when her mom uprooted the family to move them across the country with strict instructions to never talk about Swallow Ridge again. Eleven years later Destiny moves back to her hometown, determined to find her cousins… and answers.

Plagued by generations of bitterness and manipulation, Destiny hides her life-long goal – unwilling to let anyone else trample her fragile dreams. But living in the cozy town full of dandelions teaches Destiny there’s more to life than what she’s been taught.

Is it possible Swallow Ridge not only holds the answers Destiny so intensely searches for, but also the hope?

Book Review: Gestern

Gestern Tour Banner

 

Did you know Gestern is the German word for Yesterday? I didn’t until I read the excerpt I’ve included in this post. J. Grace Pennington has a new book out entitled, Gestern. I’ve read the others in this series and it sounds like another intriguing one. There are some great giveaways and guest posts going on, so be sure to read all about them.

About the Book

GesternFrontCoverYou never escape your past

Andi Lloyd is more comfortable than most with interstellar travel, but she’s not prepared for the perils and peculiarities of a world she has all but forgotten—the planet Earth. As the Surveyor undergoes repairs, her brother August receives a message with news that will send both of them across the world to a place he never wanted to visit again.

Neither of them are prepared to be thrust into a world of political intrigue amid the tangled forests and crumbling ruins of Austria.  They aren’t prepared to encounter wild animals and endure cross-country hikes.  And they definitely aren’t prepared to face it all alone.

But despite the dangers they must press on into the unknown to find a way to save Andi’s life, to decide the fate of Earth itself—and to rescue a lonely girl who just happens to be their little sister.
