Seeking with All Your Heart - Lisa Johnson

 I found the story heart-gripping and heartwarming at the same time while I was reading.  In fact, I read this novel in one sitting as it was that good.  I wanted to see how the author was going to bring about the solutions to the dilemmas and challenges the various characters faced.  The story, while fictional, has some familiarity in my personal experiences so it was all the more engaging.  I believe all who read this will be able to relate to the tale being told.  Read and enjoy!

    A Good Read

    This is.the 3rd book in this Florida series. I didn't find it as interesting as the first two. There wasn't much.mentioned about what was happening with the characters from the first two books. Except for Zeek. Who has now.purchased the Cafe across the street from the hospital & has a possible love interest.

    I hope there is a book #4. Maybe to see how Zeek's life has progressed. How Sally is doing? What Derek's path in life will be.

    I was wonderfully surprised by A Mother's Promise by Anna Schmid

    I was wonderfully surprised by A Mother's Promise by Anna Schmidt, which is Book 3 of Women of Pinecraft series. I loved this book so much I plan to read the two previous books in the series, which are A Stranger's Gift (book #1) and A Sister's Forgiveness (book #2)

    Having been a young widow myself, I found it easy to identify with the feelings and mourning stages that Rachel went through. I admired her for deciding to make a new life for herself and her son, Justin in Florida. It also took courage for her to go to college before she married in the Mennonite community that did not encourage their women to do so. She was a women with an incredibly sweet spirit, that drew most people to her. It was wonderful to see how that same sweet spirit worked on others in the book who did not want to give her a chance. She touched many lives and they were all changed for the better.

    Dr. Ben Booker is a man that I instantly liked. And his niece Sally is an strong young girl of 13, to be inspired by. Thank you Anna for a very enjoyable book. I will recommend this book to my friends and give it a 5 out of 5 stars.

    I received this book from Barbour Publishing and Net Galley for my honest review.

    4 STARS
    The Women of Pincraft

    A Mother's Promise is a good story and made for a great Sunday read. It also made me greatful for my girl's good health.
    Rachel Kaufman is a widow with a 12 year old son, who decides to leave Ohio, and take a new job in Florida.
    Her old friend for collage lives thier and helped her get a job working in the new hospital. Rachel likes her new job but she is on call a lot and is working on getting her certifcate at the same time.
    Justin Kaufman is 12 and for the first time is going to a public school. He gets into the wrong gang of kids.
    Sally tries to be his friend but Justin listens to his new friends over her. Sally has luekemia and is in remission. Her father is on the President of the board at hospital. Her Uncle Ben is a doctor.
    Rachel and Justin are living in a small guest house for free for the trial time at the hospital.
    Everyone except Darcy Meekins hospital administrator likes Rachel and thinks she is doing a great job.
    Dr. Ben Booker is single and is close to his sister and niece Sally. He works closely with Darcy at the hospital and does not realize she has set her cap for him.
    Hester Rachel's friend that got her the job we met her in A Stranger's Gift. Some of the same characters can be found in both stories.
    Thier is drama,conflict and problems but thier is forgiveness and hope, and love.
    I have enjoyed getting to know these characters and would love to see them again.
    I look forward to reading more books in The Women of Pincraft series.
    I was given this ebook to read and in exchange of honest review from Netgalley.
