Due Back...

Literature adds to reality, it does not simply describe it. It enriches the necessary competencies that daily life requires and provides; and in this respect, it irrigates the deserts that our lives have already become. -C.S Lewis

A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens. What an amazing story!

Son of Hamas by Mosab Hassan Yousef. This was another amazing story, only this one is true! Not only was Mosab Yousef disowned by his family for choices he made, but publishing this book has, i'm sure, placed a target on his back.

Three by Ted DeKker. Very, very good! A nice twist at the end, which I love in a story.

Phantom of Pemberly by Regina Jeffers. I really enjoyed Regina Jeffers's Wayward Love, about Captain Wentworth )from Persuasion). However, this one seemed too long and dry. I kept finding myself wishing it would end already. I was also expecting it to be a little bit spookier.

Mercy's Embrace: So Rough a Course
by Laura Hile. This is the first in a trilogy about Elizabeth Elliot. Really enjoyed it. I loved how she drew characters out of other Jane Austen novels. I also love how she takes Elizabeth Elliot as we knew her in Persuasion, and changes her through circumstances instead of pretending she was misrepresented in Persuasion.
