She Still Calls Me Daddy – By Robert Wolgemuth

May 16, 2012

What a wonderful book! I found it to be right on as the analysis of the father-daughter relationship must shift when the daughter marries. It is indeed true that a husband must leave his father and mother and cleave to his wife (Gen 2:24) – a wife must do the same. Read more

Book Review – A Pearl in the Sand by Tessa Afshar

May 15, 2012

It’s clear that I don’t feel the same way about the book as other reviewers. I had such a hard time reading it that I put it down within the first 100+ pages. I picked it back up later but skipped forward another 100 pages to see if the end could hold my attention any better than the beginning Read more

Dead Famous

March 21, 2008

Like reading?  Like Big Brother?  Then you’ll like Dead Famous.  If like me, you’re not into watching any reality shows, then this is still a cracking read.  A murder is comitted in a BB house, but how is certainly a mystery, one an old fashion copper with two whipper snappers helping him.  While obvious to all that it’s an inside job and if you’re a bad detective like me, then it will keep you guessing and up all night.  The contestants were chosen with care, meaning that they all had things to hide.  I can say without giving anything else away, that it wasn’t the butler and I just hope that the real BB people don’t get hold of the book to get any ideas, otherwise they’ll get more than they bargained for.

A Quiet Belief in Angels by R.J. Ellory

March 13, 2008

The tension at times in this beautifully written book is almost too much to bear. I wanted to rush headlong through to its conclusion, but at the same time I wanted to slow down to savour every word.

I love it when an author takes a particularly popular genre and turns it into genuine literature through a style of his own. That’s exactly what top selling author Roger Ellory has managed to do. Read more
