The Tea Planter's Wife

Historical novels are a great genre and I recommend them to every single reader. Gwen, our heroine, is trying to survive the times and the situation of her life and it is enjoyable to read unfolding. The Tea Planter's Wife  Dinah Jeffries is interesting and worth the days of getting lost in the story. I think I may have avoided a few hiccups of the story because of distractions but that was my fault. It does deal with lots of slavery of colored individuals but that was a sign of the times and handled well throughout this book.

The Separatists

Do you like historical drama novels where you will be addicted to reading through the last word? Then I have found the book for you and it is The Separatists  by Lis Wiehl and Sebastiab Stuart. Since our days are filled with so much political drama this story has a better place in my heart and feeds my obsession with our political climate. This is full of life dramas and the way we react to the bizarre realities of these situations. The kind of situations that would destroy any mortal but were handled exceptionally well by Erica our heroine. Best summer nights read.

Foundations of Drawing

I love, love, love learning new techniques in the media of painting because I can never learn too many tips. Foundations of Drawing  by Al Gury is educational. I devoured each of the pages and loved all of the tips and examples shown throughout this informative book. I can only say that this will be the one book to refer to for some time to come. If I had to only be given one book for painting techniques than this book would be the one, the definitive one. I highly recommend!

The Physics of Everyday Things

The title of this latest book sums up the entire premise of the contents in this book it explains all the bits and pieces of everything. The Physics of Everyday Things  by James Kakalios has given us a very thorough look of the items we use on a daily basis and how they work and how unassuming they are to our life.  This book almost reminds me of a history class I once took in school that was all information and based on what was already known or easily researched. Interesting, very interesting. I received a copy for this review from blogging for books and all opinions are my own.

Sweetbriar Cottage

What an inspiration to read a story about second chances and the idea that He really put this in the works all along. Sweetbriar Cottage  by Denise Hunter is everything and more. I may be biased and I will be honest about this and that is I adore every single story by Hunter. I am forever grateful for her power with words. Noah and Josephine are so easily my new favorite couple because of their flaws and love for one another. Such a great story.

Launch Your Dream

I thought, at least, a few times over my life that it would be such an interesting experience and possibly life altering to start my own business. However, fear and lack of knowledge on where to begin is what has held me back. Fortunately the latest book to come from Dale Partridge,Launch Your Dream, will get  me and anyone wanting to turn their love of a skill into a profitable adventure. I thought this book would be a bit dry and that was not true. I devoured each of the chapters and a fire has been set in me. I received a copy from book look bloggers and all opinions are my own.
