A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS?

I have to be honest, I didn't think I would like this book at first...What with it being Sci-fi! I'm not that big into that genre...But I decided that I should give it a whirl, especially when John said it had romance in it...What girl could turn it down...Then I thought that it was going to be really 'alien-y' but they are basically regular people like you and like I.



Once you get started with this story, your not going to be able to put it down!!! I started reading thinking it was going to take forever, but then I couldn't stop reading, and I ended up staying up WAY to late :) Now the first part, is kind of slow, but once you get to the heart of the story it just gets better and better!!!



It starts with the Story of Death of the Tavern...This is the story of the beginning! And then the Secrets of Zareba is the end of the beginning...



I have to say, this has to be the hardest review to write...I'm trying to figure out what I can say, without giving away the good stuff :)



It all starts with Micheal and Triana, getting accused of cheating during a history project, because their stories are very similar, causing the teacher (Mr. Cample) to suspect them of talking to each other during the course of their projects.
So Mr. Cample calls a meeting of the Children and their guardian/parent... Dr. Jonas Harwell, adoptive father of Michael, and guardian of Triana, sits down and starts explaining everything...How these two kids who have never heard of the opposite story, could have been so alike...It takes you through reading both stories, and lets you in on some secrets of Triana, and Dr. Harwell!!'


I would say this is a must Read!!!!!!

Back Cover:
When life gets complicated, Grace Graham runs. She's left romantic relationships, friendships, and even her family after the death of her mother. But now her sister, Jana, is giving her one last chance: Come home and help care for their father-whom Grace still blames for her mother's death_or never show her face in Shoal Creek, Tennessee, again.

With her son, Dylan, in tow, Grace returns home from California. But is she returning for the right reasons? And when costly decisions from the past suddenly put her son's life and the lives of other children in town at risk, will she have the strength to stand strong and await Another dawn?

A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS?
This is a great book, now it doesn't really have the romance factor that most of my books I review have. But it's a great story!! Grace has been running from things her whole life, when something got sticky she left. But when circumstances make it impossible for her to run, she must 'face the music' for her actions in the past.
When Dylan gets sick, at first she thinks nothing of it...until someone mention Measles! Which she never vaccinated Dylan for, since she was scared of the chemicals it would be putting into his body, when they were practically non-existent in the U.S. what she didn't factor on, was someone who was just visiting across the seas...bring it home to her...which she brings home to the infants of Shoal Creek, Tennessee...
What will Grace do when the whole town is turned against her, how will she cope? Will she lean on God? Or will she run at the next possible timing?
