CASA de Naomi The House of Blessing 
by Paula Rose Michelson

Fifteen-year-old Naomi wants to practice her faith in public, find her uncle, and help him raise enough money to bring their family to America. To accomplish this she agrees to companion a blind, old woman whose family plans to tour Europe and settle in the United States. Her plans are thwarted when the woman passes away aboard ship, and Naomi is handed over to immigration. While she awaits her interview, an old Ti├é­a comes to Naomi's rescue and offers to take her in. With nowhere to go and no one to turn to, Naomi agrees and unwittingly enters the country illegally.
This is Naomi's journey from adolescence to womanhood, from frightened isolation and captivity to the noble status of heiress with a mission and responsibility many would shirk placed upon her shoulders. Along the way, she contends with piercing memories, hurtful loss, jealous opponents, a devious lawyer, and a curious priest. Through each step of this journey, she guards two secrets she dare not share with anyone, not even Chaz, the man she has married. Will she keep his love when he discovers who she really is? Find out in the first book of Paula Rose Michelson's saga, The House of Blessing.

  
Dandyflowers 
by Jordon T. Maxwell
 
A dusty attic, an old chest, a daughter's engagement and a father's long held secret. Welcome to Dandyflowers, Jordan T. Maxwell's debut novel. Dandyflowers will take you on a gripping and whimsical trip from the present to the past and back again. Mr. Maxwell masterfully weaves the story of Jerry Collins and Laura Butler who find each other in a small, rural Missouri town during the turbulent 1960's. You will experience the full spectrum of emotion as Jerry and Laura live and learn and love and grow, but most of all as they love. Together. 



What I Plan On Reading:

  Baby Boomers Polly Nichols, Lindsay Wilson, and Gretchen Anderson may live worlds apart, but they have one common hobby – a penchant for board games. Polly’s serene Kentucky campground turns sinister when the manager is a VICTIM of murder. In New Zealand, Lindsay’s life is turned upside down when MIND GAMES and evidence drag her into a murder case - as a suspect. At the Kettle’s On Campground in Georgia, Gretchen matches wits with a murderous wordsmith intent on winning the latest game of SENTENCED. You’ll love the games, the characters, and the stories – and we promise, you won’t be BOARD to Death! To our readers: Our characters are Christians, just as the authors are who created them, so their lives and their stories reflect this viewpoint. We hope you enjoy our fun and unique stories.


So, that's what I'm reading...What are you reading this week?
And as always, Happy Reading.....
