Keeps you guessing!

Refuge on Crescent Hill
by Melanie Dobson
Kregel Publications

A great story with lots of suspense and emotion.

I would highly recommend this book. The author is very thorough and descriptive. It read like a movie. You feel very emotionally attached to the characters and would like to read more about them.

There is a great storyline without bad language or immoral scenes. The book keeps you guessing. I would like to read more books by this author.

I was given a review copy from the publisher, but a positive review was not required.

Beautiful Story

The Three Trees
by Elena Pasquali
Illustrated by Sophie Windham

A delightful what if story about three trees, who had big dreams, thought that they could never come true, then realized them beyond their hopes.

It is called a traditional folktale, the part about the trees is imagined, the life of Jesus is fact. He is the Son of God, the Saviour of the world.

One thing about this book that I enjoy is the way that it can be applied to our lives. Whatever we've been through, whoever we are, God can use us for His purpose when we put our lives in His hands, and only eternity will tell us the good we can accomplish in His will.

The book is colorfully illustrated with very few pages, a great discussion starter.

I received this book from the publisher to review, but a positive review was not required.
