The Ride of Her Life
First and Foremost I want to say congrats to Stacey, she was chosen for commenting on the Short Straw Bride review. Please e-mail me your home address (firstname.lastname@example.org) and you will get the goodies that Ms. Witemeyer sent me as well as this book that I'm reviewing now The Ride of Her Life :-)
The Ride of Her Life is the last book in the Lake Manawa Summers series. Here we have Lilly a single mother trying to make the best for her son Levi. Her life right now is trying to start over after her husband's death. Not only does she have to deal with raising a son alone, but she has her late husband's parents dictating to her what they want of their grandson. These wishes they have for her son is making him go to a year round boarding school at the tender age of six. This poor woman has been through enough and now she's dealing with in-laws who want to separate her and her son.
You may remember Lilly from the previous stories, you will also see memorable characters that make up the other two books. Lilly is in a tough time of her life and Ms. Seilstad does a great job of writing the angst of dealing with meddling grandparents, a new man in her life, and learning how to trust God. Not only does she deal with these subjects, but she also throws in some mystery and danger. If you like a good book that has suspense and romance you will enjoy The Ride of Her Life.
*This book was given to me via Revell a division of Baker Publishing Group for my honest opinion and I honestly did. It is also “Available May 2012 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.”
Proverbs 10:19 NASB
Don't talk too much, for it fosters sin. Be sensible and turn off the flow.
I'm a talker, really I'm pretty sure I talk all the time. Sometimes it's with thought and other times it just flows without thinking. My mother always said "Breeze, think before speak." And truthfully that's really hard, but here this verse is saying Don't talk too much! It fosters sin, wooh boy I really am not inclined to foster sin, so why I don't I be sensible and turn off the flow.
