Amy Inspired by Bethany Pierce



ABOUT BOOK:
Amy Gallagher is an aspiring writer who, after countless rejections, has settled for a career as an English professor in small-town Ohio just to pay the bills. All her dreams suddenly start to unravel as rejections pile up—both from publishers and her boyfriend. But just as Amy fears her life is stuck in a holding pattern, she meets the mysterious, attractive, and unavailable Eli.

She struggles to walk the fine line between friendship and something more with Eli, even as staying true to her faith becomes unexpectedly complicated. When secrets, tragedy, and poor decisions cause rifts in Amy's relationships, she must come to terms with who she's become, her unrealized aspirations for her life, and the state of her faith. Can she dare to hope that she will find love and fulfillment despite it all?

A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS?

I have to say, this wasn't one of my favorites. This was one of my books from Bethany House. I mean I enjoyed it, but I would necessarily go out and tell my 10 closest friends, 'You have to have it'. I thought it was kind of slow in getting started. And then when it did get to the good part...It was like the end of the book.


Would I say , Never pick up this book? No, by all means, it was a good book. But it's not my favorite read of 2010! But I suggest, you pick up the book, and decide for yourself. :)

A Rush of Wings by Kristen Heitzmann

This is a review, of the newly revised copy of A Rush of Wings.

BACK COVER:
Though her panic is real, Noelle St. Claire is uncertain what danger she is fleeing. Fragmented images and slivers of memory have driver her to abandon her wealthy, sheltered life in new York for the hope of a haven-remote and safe.

Noelle's arrival at the Rocky Mountain horse ranch owned by Rick Spencer and his brother Morgan causes more than a little stir. Beautiful, vulnerable, yet strangely secretive, Noelle is an enigma the two contrasting brothers seek to unlock. But as their attentions breach the wall she hides behind, the past becomes a menacing threat from which Noelle can no longer hide.

A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS?
I fell in love with Rick Spencer! He is like my dream man!! Mountain, Rugged, Good looking, and some sort of Cowboy! And did I mention Romantic? He's the quite one of the two brothers, God-fearin, and a real sweety! Morgan Spencer, He's the 'bad boy' sorts...You know the one you secretly like, but would never really marry? Yep, That's him! :) He brings Noelle out of her shell some, but can never get her to like the real him. Now Morgan is just as good looking as Rick, but he's not the Cowboy type...You all know what I'm talking about ;) He's the business man of the family. Flying everywhere for his job. Too much like Noelle's life before she ran away!

Noelle, To put it bluntly...the girl has problems! She's been through a traumatic experience when she was a child, which her brain choose to keep hidden in her memory. And then when her Fiance got mad that she was breaking it up, parts where coming back to her, but she didn't know that it wasn't from that horrific time in her past...she thought it was the present. So she grabs all her cash she can find, and starts riding the bus.

All I can say is, Read this Book! I loved it! It was moving in the fact that, in her darkest hours, God was able to help her, and how that no matter how much we tell ourselves, just ignoring it will help, it really doesn't. It sometimes (most of the time) makes it worse!

~ Sorry for how long it's been since I last posted...Maid to Match will be coming shortly...I've been on Vacation, and working Long Hours...so again I am sorry, and I hope to have it more regular again here soon!
