Excellent Historical Books! πŸ‘

Happy Wednesday, half way through the week! πŸ‘

I’ve listened to so many audio books in the past few weeks, I can’t remember the sequence πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈ. I’ll probably do at least two posts.

When The Men Were Gone, is amazing πŸ‘! I don’t often say a book must be turn into a movie but this is one of those exceptions πŸ’•. Author Marjorie captures the emotions of a Texas little town, as it divides when a female steps out to coach a high-school football during WWII. Throw in the loss of loved ones to war, and the humbling way the team protests at a board meeting set to cancel football, it was useless to try keeping my tears at bay 😭 . No romance just a great moving book, inspired by a true story, that can be enjoyed by everyone. I give it 5 πŸ’•.

Another 5 πŸ’•Β novel brought on by Lynn Austin. This light romance and had me laughing out loud! πŸ‘Β  It was adventurous, full of humor and a great analogyΒ of God’s fatherly love that will keep you reflecting long after you have finished itΒ Β πŸ’•Β .

This was a great novel by Susan Meissner! πŸ‘Β I was laughing in the beginning but, like most war novels I got weepy mid way. This contemporary story about a woman who digs up family history in attempt to understand why this house used during the Civil War seems to have ghosts and a curse. Although light in romance, it displays all shapes of true love. I rate it 4 1/2 πŸ’•Β .

A Chance at Forever is a very romantic story of two souls who must confront their past. I love how author Melissa Jagears demonstrates the cause and effects of being bullied as well as what the bully might be feeling. It is such an important subject well addressed.

The narrator had a good voice and was okay, but a couple of times I failed to realize the switch of character because the lack of change in her voice. It’s still a great novel and will be looking into other of her books πŸ˜‰.Β πŸ’• πŸ’• πŸ’• πŸ’•Β
