Emma ~ Jane Austen

Emma fancies herself a matchmaker and a good one at that.  Vowing never to marry she finds enjoyment in finding "matches" for her acquaintances.  But when match after match ends in heartache, she begins to reconsider her matchmaking abilities.  And when her resolution to never marry gets put to the test and she begins to see that the only man she could ever marry is quite possibly in love with someone else, her world threatens to fall apart.


Being a huge fan of Jane Austen I loved this book! I'd seen several versions of movies, so I knew what was going to happen.  But, of course no movie can fully capture a book, so there were a few surprises for me!
Find it! Read it! Love it!

Finding God's Path Through Your Trials ~ Elizabeth George

When faced with trials it's sometimes hard to stay focused on God and to know where and how to go.

Elizabeth George does not claim to have all the answers, nor does she have the "few steps to complete happiness", but she does have the Bible, which she so wonderfully leads us through to show us how God intends for us to deal with our trials.  But not to just deal with them but get through them and get through them in a God honoring way which makes us more like Christ.

Sundays At Tiffany's ~ James Patterson

Ever have an imaginary friend?  Jane did, his name was Michael.  They were the best of friends.  He was really her only friend and then one day he had to leave her. Jane was devastated and crushed.  But years later a grown-up Jane is wondering if you are really supposed to see your imaginary friend when you're 20 or 30 years old and if you're really supposed to fall in love with them?


I thought this was a sweet story.  There was an adult scene which need to  be left out.  It was a quick, easy read, but would I read it again?  Probably not.
