No Place To Hide by Lynette Eason

I am a huge Lynette Eason fan! I've loved every novel she has written and I get super excited when she has a new release. This has been a great series. Here in the Hidden Identity Series she brings us the third installment, No Place To Hide

I invite you to check out my reviews for No One To Trust and Nowhere To Turn. You will want to read these in order. Yes, it's possible to read them as stand alone's, but reading them as a series will give you a more enjoyable read. 

Lynette pens novels that capture the reader's imagination. She introduces us to characters that we care about and provides us with vivid detail to the surroundings. She gives enough information that's needed, but still allows room for the mind to ponder. I love that! They are characters we can relate to on a certain level. Many of us have wondered, where we would turn or if there was one we could truly trust. And here we see that these characters feel like there's no place to hide from what's chasing them. As Lynette so brilliantly weaves this story we see that there is always a place to hide in the One who loves us mightily. 

I'm seeing that with this series trust is a main theme. Okay, can you imagine being on the run and not really understanding why? One of the main characters, Jackie Sellers, finds that a childhood friend is in need. She's in the position to help him, but is he being honest? Is he telling her everything she needs to know? In other words, can she trust him? She jumps in and gives aid only to find herself now in danger. 

Let's flip it now to the next main character, Ian Lockwood, is on the run. He's being accused of a crime, and trying to find his way out. Out of no where comes Jackie. The girl he has loved forever. She's willing to help, but can he trust her to help and not turn him over to the police? He takes a chance and together they find themselves in circumstances neither could have imagined. 

Here we have a novel about friendship and just what will one do for their friend. Jackie is ready and willing to help her friend no matter the cost. That's a great friend to have along side when trouble comes. Both of these characters have secrets. They have been out of touch for many years and much has happened to each of them. It's as though their friendship just picked up where they had left it years ago. 

We see many different ways in which love is given and trust is received. I love how Lynette entwines each novel with faith at the center. In this case the main character has walked away from God. She knows God. Has a relationship with Him, but things are complicated. She's a bit angry at Him. But through the twists and turns of this novel we see her reach for a new kind of relationship with Him. One that's built on trust. A no matter what kind of faith. 

This novel was a gift from Revell for sharing my review with you.

The One True Love of Alice-Ann by Eva Marie Everson

Oh, just where do I begin? This is the stuff in which great novels are made. I made my way through this richly beautiful novel turning page after page with such deep emotion and thought. I couldn't turn the pages quick enough, but I didn't want it to end to soon. It's one of those novels you could continue reading as long as there were pages. No page just made of fluff, words with no meaning on the page. Every single line in this novel created a story that will last in my heart forever. 
Ms. Everson, I am so happy stories of the war were shared with you. Oh, to have your Sunday school teacher share with you, "You can't choose who you fall in love with, but you can choose who you marry", is a blessing that has now enchanted your readers. What a story you have weaved together. History penned with such depth, detail, and a story that captures the heart. 
This lovely story begins in 1941. The war has started. Picture a family gathered around the Zenith to hear t…

The Glassblower by Petra Durst-Benning

I came across this selection on Amazon. I had seen so many reviews that it intrigued me. I had never read anything from this German author. The cover caught my attention as did the description of this novel. 
It's a part of a trilogy. I am getting ready to open up book 2, The American Lady. I cannot wait to begin. I tell you this book marveled me. I wasn't quite sure what to expect. What a journey into another time and place. 
We travel to Germany where this novel is set. The year is 1890 and we find ourselves in Lauscha, Germany. The author did a fantastic job at the perfect description of not only the area, but circumstance, and heart of the characters. Her writing style flows so easily that the pages almost turn themselves. 
The characters are easy to love. Three sisters who are now wondering, after their father had passed from this earth,  how they will now provide for themselves. It isn't going to be easy, but these sisters show us how to prevail over challenges that…

The" I Am" Makes Us Think About What "i am"

In Genesis 1:26-27 it shares something valuable to each of us about who we are in God. We are created in His image. What I love about this verse below is that is says, "make man in OUR image". What's OUR? The trinity, God, the Holy Spirit, and Christ Jesus. Ponder that. I mean really go deep. We are make in THEIR image. 
"Then God said, "Let US make man in OUR image, according to OUR likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth. So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him, male and female He created them."
We are His workmanship. He knew us before we were ever born. He weaved us together within the womb, but even before then He planned our life perfectly for us. That's so much to ponder isn't it? 
"For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared…

Unexpected Blessings

The last words my dad spoke to me from his hospital bed were, "Rob, take care of your mom." Those are words I have never forgotten. I have not only honored them for my dad, but for my mom. I too am commanded by my Father to honor my mother and father.
"Honor your father and mother so that you may have a long life in the land that the Lord your God is giving you." Exodus 20:12
My mom gave her life in caring for me. On my first birthday, my very first Christmas, was spent in the ICU as I was very sick with pneumonia. A little later I would burn myself with spilled coffee. A few years later I would tumble down many stairs and once again spent time in the hospital. 
I remember all the times I was sick and could feel my mom's hand brush against my forehead as she checked for fever. All the times she must have stayed up all night as I was sick. 
When I was little she would pour me a bowl of Raisin Bran. I loved it. Only I didn't like the raisins. She would take t…

Of Stillness and Storm by Michele Phoenix

This is my first novel read by Michele Phoenix. I love the premise of this novel and all that she opened my eyes to. We always hear of the 'calling' by missionaries. We want to go where God calls us. We want to make a difference. 
To be called by God isn't the same for every soul. We all fit differently into His plan. Our walk with Him isn't ALL we do for His name, but our relationship with Him, our intimate journey with our Savior. 
This novel is raw and transparent. For me, it was the journey of Lauren. We see that her husband feels called to work in Nepal and with the people, but we really don't read about much of his personal journey. 
Their son, Ryan, is struggling. We can see through the conversations he has with his parents that he is truly unhappy. We see the fall, but we don't really get a close glimpse into his heart. 
It is with Lauren that we journey. She feels alone and lost. Through her words we can 'feel' the pain in her heart. She is br…
