Here is what I’ve finished since last time (links in this section are to my reviews):
Rare Earth by Davis Bunn. Former operative Marc Royce has been sent into Kenya to help bring supplies to an area devastated by drought and a volcano eruption, but he secretly has another mission. Excellent.
The Bridesmaid by Beverly Lewis, second in the Home to Hickory Hollow series, Amish fiction. Joanna has been a bridesmaid multiple times but finally meets a young man, except he is from another town and obligated to work his father’s farm. Her secret hobby of writing becomes known and gets her in trouble. Always love Beverly Lewis: hers is the only Amish fiction I read.
The Discovery by Dan Walsh. A young author inherits the home of his famous author grandfather and finds an old unpublished manuscript which may reveal things his family never knew. Very good.
The Maid of Fairbourne Hall by Julie Klassen. A well-to-do young women escapes her step-father’s plans for her to wed an unscrupulous young man by disguising herself as a maid and going to another town, ending up at the home of two brothers who were former suitors. A very enjoyable read.
A Wrinkle in Time by Madeline L’Engle, not reviewed yet.
