Sacred Hearts, Book Review

Sacred Hearts
by Sarah Dunant
This Book brings us on a journey of a young girl who's destiny is not what she had imagined. Love and betrayal in itself can be unforgiveable but when a young girl is placed in a nunnery against her will anything can happen. This is a compelling story about strength, love and spirit. What can Serafina do to overcome her fate as a Nun, will she succomb to her lot in life, or will her high spirited nature take over?
This book was an interesting tale, a refreshingly different read about a time forgotten, I loved the spirit of Seraphina and her Nun friend Zuana. It was quite enlightening to read about a convent and the life's within.

Labor Day, Book Review

Labor Day
by Joyce Maynard

This is a book that will touch you deeply. Love and forgiveness are bound together in Labor Day, what would you do for the sake of love? Read Labor Day and you will find a touching story about love, sacrifice, and the lengths one will go to when love is involved. Love generally has twists and turns, and the twist in this book is one that could be potentially dangerous.

I loved this book, after reading it in one sitting, I will definately read it again as well as highly recommend it to others. This is a book that can renew one's faith in true love, love that lasts, and love that conquers. Wonderful read, and I will be watching for more books written by Joyce Maynard.

The Bride Will Keep Her Name, Book Review

The Bride Will Keep Her Name
By: Jan Goldstein

Released June 16, 2009

A love story with a plot, a bride with an agenda, in The Bride Will Keep Her Name, Jan Goldstein keeps you on your toes with twists and turns that you would not ordinarily expect in a romance novel. This isn't just any old love story, but a story that will have you gripping the book a little tighter, it will have you laughing and sometimes crying as you follow Madison's quest to the alter. The lesson in this book, as Madison's mom likes to say, is, "be careful what you wish for."

This was a fun, refreshing read. So many times a romance novel is just like every other romance novel on the shelves, not this one. I would definately recommend this book if you are looking for a fun, lighthearted read.
