Review for Rekindled

Tamara Alexander’s debut novel, Rekindled, is a love story in the true sense of the word. From the moment the reader meets Kathy and Larson to the end of the story, Tamara grips the heart and won’t let go. We agonize with Kathy as she learns her husband died in a great snow storm, and then we feel Larson’s pain as he heals from horrific wounds and finds that everyone believes him to be dead. Riding a roller coaster of emotion, the reader experiences the despair, the fear, the courage, and hope of Kathy and Larson. Secondary characters are unforgettable. From couple who save Larson to the helpless girl Kathy wants to save, Tamara creates men and women who live long after the book is finished. Rekindled tells not only a story of undying love of a man for a woman, but also God’s never ending love for His children.

Milestone Birthday

Well, it's been while since I posted. So much going on.
Yesterday, June 22, I entered another decade on my birthday. When my mother turned 70 I thought she was so old, but now that I've reached that milestone, it doesn't seem odd at all. Usually I celebrate my birthday with my cousins, but this year we've postponed our cousin's visit until late July.
God has brought me through so much in my life, and the fact He has let me survive this long tells me that He isn't finished with me yet. I'm eagerly looking forward to what he has planned for me in the coming year.
