Ryan's Crossing

Ryan’s crossing; the second book in the crossing series is the continuing saga of the people of the town of crossing. It continues with the first ones theme of forgiveness and the power of love and the love God show’s us all each and every day. I feel, like the first book it was a bit rushed and a wasn’t as much in depth as I would have liked, like there wasn’t a lot of details with the characters past and there isn’t enough information included about their everyday lives. I was a little disappointed at the fact that after Amber and Peter got married, they almost completely disappear from the story, and I would have liked slightly more about both of the weddings in the story.

I really liked the story all in all and am looking forward to reading the next one due to come out soon. I think the story plot is well thought out and the characters were well thought out and had their own sets of strengths and weaknesses. I would suggest the story to lovers of Christian fiction and shorter books as this one isn’t super long. I rate it 4 out of 5 stars.

I was not made to write a good review only to voice my honest opinion on the story; I was given this book for free, by the Author Carrie Daws for review

Crossing Values

Crossing Values is an amazingly written story of the power of forgiveness and unending love. As the story starts you are not sure what is going to happen to the people in the town aren’t going to get hurt. However, as the story progresses you see how each person is influenced by her coming into town and it changes each of them in their own little way. I think the story could have been slowed down a little bit so you could get to know the inevitable characters of the story a little bit better and not have to guess different things about them that the story doesn’t include. Other then that I loved the story and it was so easy to fall into the story and not want to come out of it until the story is finished.

The book is short, at only around 160 pages, yet in that small number of pages Carrie Daws makes a huge difference in her reader’s lives and makes them think deeper about the story and the meanings behind it and the power of God’s forgiveness.

I was not made to write a positive review, only to voice my personal opinion on the title above mentioned. I received this book for free for review thru Carrie Daws, the Author.

I enjoyed reading every page of it and it was amazing and very thought provoking, something I feel every novel should have at its base. I started reading this book and it was so hard not to read it all the way into the night until it was finished. I enjoyed it that much and it had a grip on me few stories do, but love when they do! I would recommend this book to lovers of Christian fiction and Fiction with redemption at the roots.I really enjoyed this title and i think you will too. I rate it 5out of 5 stars.I received this book for review and was not made to write a positive review, only to voice my opinion on the book, I received this book from Thomas Nelson Publishiers.

Her life at stake, Robin doesn’t know who to trust and wonders how she can help protect innocent people. Why is God silent amid all the pain and injustice? And how do these people of faith continue to rejoice in their suffering?

Even though this book was very long, it had some parts that i felt could have been omitted from the story. It had a good story line and a good topic but was hard for me to get into at first and through out the book had a hard time reading it and keeping my head i the story and being able to comperhend the story fully. It got a little better as time went on but i didn't enjoy the book as much because of it. But all in all its a decent read. I would recommened this book to those who enjoy Christian fiction and arent afraid of getting their nose stuck in a long book!
