Just wanting to get some more books for my To Be Read list. I'll see how much reading I get done with Sam around now, but until he's mobile I think I'll still have some time.

One of my recent favorites is "Candle in the Darkness" by Lynn Austin. It is the first book in her Refiner's Fire Series.

If you are a fan of historical fiction, this is a great book to read. It's been awhile since I read the book, so it is difficult for me to say much about it here. I would suggest going to http://www.christianbook.com and reading the excerpt. That's what prompted me to read the book in the first place, and I don't regret the choice. I've not had a chance to read the 2nd book in the series yet, but I really really want to.

"Eve's Daughters" is another wonderful book by Lynn Austin. Check out the excerpt on CBD's website for this one as well.

I liked "Eve's Daughters" too. Some of it made me really sad, but it was well written and a good plot.

"Candle in the Darkness" has some very sad parts too, and the writing is at least as good as "Eve's Daughters". I love how Lynn Austin makes the characters seem so real and draws you in to what they are feeling.

Sandy, Thank you for the wonderful reviews. I have read atonement child but not the Kingsbury book. She really has a way of tugging on the hearstrings doesn't she?
