Beneath His Silence Review


 

About the Book

Book: Beneath His Silence

Author: Hannah Linder

Genre: Christian Fiction / Historical / Romance

Release date: November, 2022

 

Will Seeking Justice Lead to Her Own Demise?

A Gothic-Style Regency Romance from a Promising Young Author

Second daughter of a baron—and a little on the mischievous side—Ella Pemberton is no governess. But the pretense is a necessity if she ever wishes to get inside of Wyckhorn Manor and attain the truth. Exposing the man who killed her sister is all that matters.

Lord Sedgewick knows there’s blood on his hands. Lies have been conceived, then more lies, but the price of truth would be too great. All he has left now is his son—and his hatred. Yet as the charming governess invades his home, his safe cocoon of bitterness begins to tear away.

Could Ella, despite the lingering questions of his guilt, fall in love with such a man? Or is she falling prey to him—just as her dead sister?

More from Hannah

People always ask me what inspired a story. Where did I get the idea? Who was my inspiration? What true-life event motivated these characters into existence?

 

And the truth is, I don’t know. I’ve never known. When I was younger, I’d look clueless and shrug my shoulders. A few years ago, I would have probably answered “people”—and maybe there’s truth in that. People do inspire me. The way they walk, the places they go, the things they do, the way they dress.

 

But lately…well, I think it’s more than that. I don’t think it’s people so much as feelings. The nitty-gritty. The raw emotions, caught deep in someone’s chest, at the most pivotal points in their life.

 

Like the old man seated at a booth, alone in a restaurant, with his veiny hands cupping a mug of coffee. It’s not his shabby fedora that inspires me. Or the knotty cane leaned against his seat. Or the envelope stuffed into the pocket of his woolen overcoat.

 

It’s the look on his face. The slow blinking, the red nose, the flash of moisture as he takes another sip of coffee. Why does he sit alone? Who left him? Who caused the tears? What emotions render that lost, helpless, longing expression—and how will he cope?

 

If you would ask me what inspired Beneath His Silence, I probably wouldn’t have much of an answer. No concrete idea or moment would rush to remembrance. If anything, inspiration for Beneath His Silence was nothing more than a small thought. A feeling.

 

I wanted to write about a girl who learned to love someone she hated. I wanted to explore every aspect. The poison of her hate. The weight it pressed into her heart. The process—slow, startling, and healing—that sucked out that poison and replaced it with something unexpected. Love.

 

I guess that’s what I love about writing. Not the people. The characters. Not even the storylines and the plot twists and the fun settings.

 

I love the emotion. That’s what inspires me.

 

And if you find yourself in the pages of Beneath His Silence, I hope it will inspire you too.

 My Thoughts

 I have been looking at this book on my wish list for months. This is a new to me author so I wasn't sure quite to expect. I will tell you this book exceeded my expectations and I am eager to read more from Hannah Linder! This story starts off with a thrill of adventure and mystery and takes you in a direction you might not expect. There is swoon worthy romance and a tangled web of suspense that was DELIGHTFUL! Right when you think you have it all figured out you discover that you don't. The entire cast of characters was so well done and of course the setting. This book swept me up into the mystery and I really couldn't put the book down. Hannah Linder is an author to watch!

My Thoughts

 Oh my what a delightful read! This is the BEST book I have read by Megan Walker. The characters are delightful and fun. Their personalities are very different which adds for many entertaining conversations and scenes throughout the story. I was a little uncertain about her falling for a man who is not her intended. But as we know with the Regency times people often didn't know their intended or at least not well until right before the wedding day arrived. I think Megan did a good job in not crossing a line with the romance side of things. Mostly I just enjoyed the funny scenes and banter between not only the two main characters but also Liza. Many times I caught myself laughing out loud and I am hoping we get to read about these characters again. I thoroughly loved this book and I can't wait to read Megan Walker's next story!

The Bookshop of Secrets Review With Celebrate Lit



About the Book

Book: The Bookshop of Secrects

Author: Mollie Rushmeyer

Genre: Contemporary Women’s Fiction (Christian)

Release date: October 25, 2022

A collection of lost books holds the clues to her family’s legacy…and her future.

Hope Sparrow has mastered the art of outrunning her tragic past, learning never to stay anywhere too long and never to allow anyone control over her life again. Coming to Wanishin Falls in search of her family’s history already feels too risky. But somewhere in the towering stacks of this dusty old bookshop are the books that hold Hope’s last ties to her late mother—and to a rumored family treasure that could help her start over.

Only, the bookshop is in shambles, and the elderly owner is in the beginning stages of dementia and can’t remember where the books lie. To find the last links to the loved ones she’s lost, Hope must stay and accept help from the townsfolk to locate the treasured volumes. Each secret she uncovers brings her closer to understanding where she came from. But the longer she stays in the quaint town, the more people find their way into the cracks in her heart. And letting them in may be the greatest risk of all…

About the Author

Mollie writes contemporary fiction with a heart for history. What does this mean exactly? She loves to write inspirational fiction in contemporary settings with fascinating historical elements, people, objects, and stories woven throughout.

A modern girl herself– She wouldn’t want to go a day without modern plumbing and central air! But she’s always felt a special connection to the past. The legacies and lives left behind are like gifts waiting to be unwrapped, and she’s excited to share this blend of history and contemporary living with readers.

A born and bred Midwestern gal, Mollie Rushmeyer, makes her home in central Minnesota with her husband and two spunky, beautiful daughters. She is not only a bibliophile (the dustier the better, in her opinion), she’s a true anglophile at heart. Tea and coffee fuel her travels, by Google maps at least, and her passion for the written word.

More from Mollie

Since childhood, opening up a book unlocked a whole new world for me. Of possibilities and adventure, and made me care for people and places that didn’t exist. Like stepping through the wardrobe into Narnia, books transported me. It was like magic.

As I began dreaming up The Bookshop of Secrets in its early stages, I knew I wanted to create a character who loved books and was in awe of their transformative and transportive power as much as I am. Thus, Hope Sparrow, a human trafficking survivor and ultimate book lover, was born. I also wanted to honor my grandpa, who planted the seed—love of the written word—in my heart from the time I was very young. And so, Ulysses, the owner of Dusty Jackets Bookshop in the story, is based on my sweet grandpa who has since passed away. But I know he’d love this homage to all things literary.

Afterward, I didn’t know if I’d ever write again and I was more terrified of that than not gaining back the full strength of my left arm.

In the middle of writing this book, in 2018, I had a stroke. As with most medical emergencies, it was quite unexpected. I had a hole in my heart (that has been repaired, thankfully). Afterward, I didn’t know if I’d ever write again and I was more terrified of that than not being able to fully move my left arm again. My brain had to make new connections and it was so difficult, still is some days, to be creative. To find the right words.

But God. In the way that only He can, He brought this forgotten story, this project’s finish line that seemed to be at the summit of an insurmountable mountain within reach. I thought I had something to prove to myself. I begged God not to forget my dream to write. Like He could. But in the end, I just had to trust like my character Hope. Trust that He is good even when life hurts and is uncertain.

“Do you know what the opposite of fear is?”

“Bravery? Peace?” Dare she say her namesake, hope?

“The true counterpart of fear is faith. It takes faith to walk into the future, the unknown, with confidence. Secure in the love of the One who created you and those around you outweighs any hardship, real or imagined, that lies on the path ahead.”

I hope following Hope’s journey of healing and love in The Bookshop of Secrets truly blesses you.

My Thoughts


How could I not be excited about a book with this cover and set in a bookshop!? This was a lovely sweet story and about as bookish as I expected. It was an adventure of finding hidden books in a bookshop and who wouldn't want to do that? I enjoyed Hope's character as there were a lot of layers to what made her who she was. The mystery element that flows through the story line kept me flipping the pages as did Ulysses, the elderly character that made this book all the better. There is a lot packed in this story and a while a few chapters seemed a bit slow I still enjoyed it. I am eager to read what Mollie Rushmeyer writes next!!

Sundown Review

About the Book


Former Delta Operative Colt Kingston knows when someone is lying. He may not know the truth, but he sure doesn't trust Tae, the woman who is caring for his ailing father at Sky King Ranch. Behind those beautiful blue eyes, he can tell there is a troubled--and smart--woman.

A few of her stories prove true--he's found the crashed plane and the dead body inside. Still, her story of survival seems too incredible to believe . . . until the thugs she claims to be hunting her show up and threaten Sky King Ranch. Now Tae must disappear, along with her secrets.

But Colt's not about to let her go it alone. And when they discover that her secrets include the antidote to a plague that threatens the world, it'll take all three Kingston brothers to save the country they've vowed to protect.

Susan May Warren brings her Sky King Ranch series to a climactic close with this high-stakes race against the clock. (Goodreads)


My Thoughts

Susan May Warren can write a dang good story. In this case a GREAT trilogy. This is my second favorite series she has written and I am sad to see it ending. I loved this book. It starts off with action and you absolutely have to read the entire thing in one sitting. Sleep is not as important as finishing this delightful adventure! I love all the Kingston brothers and I was curious how Colt's story would be told. There are some twists and turns I wasn't quite expecting which is always great. The romance is perfect and the family dynamic is one of my favorites. This book does talk about a virus and that part was a bit too realistic but it was necessary for the story to unfold. The ending had me tearing up quite a bit and touched my heart more than expected. I get too attached to these characters! While this book can be read as a stand alone, I wouldn't recommend it. Start with book one and get to know all the Kingston brothers and also book two has a lot of back story that ties in with this final one. 

I can't recommend this trilogy enough! If you enjoy clean romance and adventure you simply must pick up these books! 

 

Five Stars.

Where the Blue Sky Begins Review

 

 


About the Book

 After an accident brings businessman Eric Larson and eccentric Eunice Parker together, the unlikely pair spend more time with each other than they would like while facing challenges beyond what they imagined. As Eunice comes to accept her terminal illness, they both wrestle with an important question: What matters most when the end is near? (Goodreads)

 

 

BUY HERE


My Thoughts

I have really enjoyed each novel that Katie Powner has written. She is so great about writing characters that you wouldn't expect and with such depth. This story takes us into the lives of Eric and Eunice. Eric is a cocky businessman and Eunice is dying. Thrown together in the strangest of places by coincidences that involves a scooter and a list, the two go on to experience life through a slightly different lens. Both characters grow throughout the story but Eric is who really touched my heart. That could be because I can relate to him the most? Regardless this story is not at all what I expected. I loved the small town setting and the secondary characters truly shine through the pages. 

This is not my favorite book by Powner but it was still a good read. It will make you think and consider on a big picture level, especially when it comes to forgiveness. 


Three Stars.

Mary: Daughters of the Lost Colony Review



About the Book

Book: Mary

Author: Shannon McNear

Genre: Historical/Christian/Romance Fiction

Release date: October, 2022

 

Worlds Collide Along the Shores of the Outer Banks

Immerse yourself in the “what if” questions related to the Lost Colony of Roanoke. What if an English boy and a native girl met in the wilderness? The push-and-pull between two very different worlds begins as one seeks simple friendship and the other struggles to trust. And can it—dare they—allow it to be more?

Sparks fly between Mushaniq, free-spirited daughter of Manteo, and Georgie Howe, whose father was brutally murdered by undiscovered native warriors before they’d been on Roanoac Island a full week. As Georgie struggles to make sense of his life and to accept that not all they call “savage” are guilty of his father’s death, Mushaniq grapples with her own questions about who Manteo has become. As tentative friendship becomes more, forged in the fire of calamity and attack upon their community, both must decide whether the One True God is indeed who He claims to be and whether He is worthy of their trust.

More from Shannon

Why did I write Mary? The series started as an idea suggested by my editor and soon became something of an obsession. This installment was inspired partly by the Legend of the Coharie, a fragment of the very murky history surrounding the Roanoke Colony and the Lumbee people of North Carolina. According to this legend, George Howe, the son of the colonist by same name who was brutally murdered a few days after their landing on Roanoke Island, married a daughter of Manteo, the Native man who traveled twice to England, later led a group of the colonists inland for refuge and eventually became an ancestor of the Lumbees. Then, as my Lost Colony research expanded, my interest in the nuances of two cultures meeting and blending grew into a desire to pay tribute to what might have been the first (and possibly only) example of European and Native peoples living together in peace. Imagine if this had been the defining moment of our country’s founding?

 

As usually happens, fictional characters (even those based on historical figures) sooner or later run away with the story—and that’s the part I find most exciting! I hope you, the readers, also enjoy this tale of Mushaniq (squirrel in Carolina Algonquian) and Georgie, which serves as both a parallel story and sequel to Elinor.

My Thoughts

I have always been fascinated with the history of the Lost Colony. I love thinking up ideas on mysterious events in history that have little explanation. This book surprised me but in a good way. The first book in this series was very slow for me because I didn't feel fully invested in the characters. This story captured my attention right away. I love the characters and the historical details are DELIGHTFUL! The back of the book has a list of Carolina Algonquian words that are used throughout the book and I referenced it multiple times. 

The author does type a bit of a "caution" prior to the first chapter. She is sticking with historical accuracy and some of the things that happen in the book are not necessarily what we are accustomed to in our current culture. This is a clean book but there is a lot of discussion about coming of age and how the settlers vs. the Native Americans handled purity and sexual relations. There are many differences of course on a lot of things between the two cultures and I found it to be completely fascinating from a historical standpoint. 

All that to say, this is not your typical story, so grab a copy and get ready for an adventure! 

I really enjoyed it! 

Five Stars.

Body of Evidence Review


 

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/60797668-body-of-evidence

About the Book

 Forensic pathologist Grace Reilly has seen her share of unusual deaths in rural Missouri. But when she begins to notice a curious pattern in autopsies of elderly residents whose demise appears to be natural, she takes her concerns to Sheriff Nate Cox.

Nate is skeptical about the link Grace is seeing between the deaths--and her suspicions of foul play. But her persistence is compelling. Once she finally convinces him her theory is credible and they join forces to investigate, danger follows. Because exposing the truth could destroy several lives--including Grace's. (Goodreads)

BUY HERE

 

My Thoughts

This is my favorite book from the Triple Threat series. I really loved Grace Reilly as the leading lady and the suspense carried throughout the entire book. I wasn't on the edge of my seat but I did want to know what in the world was going on with the murders! The small town setting reminded me of home and I liked how certain things weren't drawn out to the ridiculous point. There wasn't any wishy washy romance drama and I thought it was well written and didn't take away from the plot. The ending wasn't terribly shocking but settled the story nicely. This is not my favorite book by Irene Hannon but still an enjoyable quick suspense read.

The Secrets of Emberwild Review

 

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/60324262-the-secrets-of-emberwild

 About the Book

A gifted trainer in a time women are not allowed to race, Nora Fenton prefers horses to men. They're easier to handle, they're more reliable, and they never tell her what to do. After her father's passing, Nora is determined to save her struggling horse farm, starting with entering her prize colt into the harness races at the 1905 Mississippi Fair. If she wins, she may have a chance at independence. But when a stranger arrives and starts asking disconcerting questions, she suspects he may have other motives than unseating her in the training job that is rightfully hers.

Silas Cavallero will do whatever it takes to solve the mystery of his father's death--even if it means training an unwieldy colt for Nora, who wants nothing more than to see him gone. But when mysterious accidents threaten their safety and circumstances shrouded in secrets begin unlocking clues to his past, Silas will have to decide if the truth is worth risking ruining everything for the feisty woman he's come to admire. (Goodreads)

 

BUY HERE

 

My Thoughts

I wasn't sure what to expect with this story as this is a new to me author. I really found the overall plot to be interesting and Silas a great hero. I had a difficult time loving and sympathizing with Nora and I think that is partly why this story was a little bit of a struggle for me to read. The first few chapters I was totally invested but it got a bit slow and drawn out for me. There are some twists at the end that complete the book in a good way but the middle was a challenge. It took me until the end to appreciate Nora's character and the ending was very well done. While much of this book was predictable, I did enjoy the last plot twist and I think others will also. For those that enjoy southern historical fiction with a touch of suspense this book is for you!

Paul's Promise Movie Review & Giveaway!

 


 About the Movie

Set in the peak of the 1960s Civil Rights movement, Paul's Promise is the inspiring true story of Paul Holderfield, former racist firefighter-turned-pastor who started one of the first integrated churches in the American South. It’s one man’s journey to hope and healing during a troubled time in our Nation’s history that resulted in one man’s decision to serve God and stand up to injustice - a story that continues to make a huge impact on the community to this day. 

 

 IN THEATERS October 21, 2022

 

Paul's Promise chronicles Paul Holderfield, Sr.’s life, who is raised poor and knows what it’s like to go to bed hungry and hear his mother pray at night for food for her children. In the 1950’s, during the Little Rock Central High School crisis, Holderfield is a North Little Rock fireman who remembers turning his back on a Black man, hoping he will not recognize him, but he does. His childhood best friend Jimmy Lipkin approaches Paul for a handshake, but Holderfield puts his hands in his back pockets and refuses to shake Lipkin’s hand. Later convicted by his actions, Holderfield tells his wife Barbara that he will never again treat a human being that way.

 

 


 

 

My Thoughts

I really found this movie to be interesting for many reasons. It is based on a true story, prayer is key and Paul's mom does not give up and remains strong in her faith, and it shines a bright light on the history of the racism in our country. We would be foolish to think that many of these things regarding racism don't happen still today. This isn't a cheerful movie and it has a lot of gritty difficult issues within the story line. There is a lot of humor peppered in to add levity to an otherwise very sobering film. I really enjoyed the added humor because it was done well. Basically the film revolves around Paul and his mother not wanting to die before he becomes a changed man in Christ. It was truly a good movie.  There are some great lines one of which Paul's mother says, "He (God) can change anything, even a man's pride." Most all of our sin boils down to pride so I really appreciated that sentence.

This is a great movie and I am glad it was made. It is well worth watching!  

 

FIVE STARS! 

 I would use caution if watching with children as there is a lot of heavy issues such as: drinking, racism (in many forms), yelling, domestic abuse (not too graphic), hospital scenes of someone dying, etc. There is nothing I would say that isn't "clean" but I would still use caution if you have children watching with you.

 Many thanks to Damascus Road Productions for providing a sample of the product for this review. Opinions are 100% my own.
