Thanks for stopping by. You'll find some reviews of books I've read, maybe a video I've made and maybe a free offer I've stumbled across! I love to read mysteries and thrillers. Favorites include James Lee Burke, Lee Child and Sue Grafton. I love discovering new authors. And sometimes there is nothing better than a new cookbook. I love to cook and bake and love to read new recipes...and look at the pictures of the food!

Review: American Dream: the New World, Colonial Times and Hints of Revolution
The New World, Colonial Times, and Hints of Revolution
Girls are girls wherever they live—and the Sisters in Time series shows that girls are girls whenever they lived, too! This new collection brings together four historical fiction books for 8–12-year-old girls: Sarah’s New World: The Mayflower Adventure (covering the year 1620), Rebekah in Danger: Peril at Plymouth Colony (1621), Maggie’s Dare: The Great Awakening (1744), and Lizzie and the Redcoat: Stirrings of Revolution in the American Colonies (1765). American Dream will transport you back to the birth of our nation, teaching important lessons of history and Christian faith. Featuring bonus educational materials such as time lines and brief biographies of key historical figures, American Dream is ideal for anytime reading and an excellent resource for home schooling.
Four great stories for girls aged 8 to 12 to help them understand American history better while enjoying a wonderful story. This book is written for a Christian audience and helps the reader learn important faith lessons.
