c girl

Fourteen-year-old Rosalind has always been a foster girl without a past, until she’s sent to live with a long-lost grandmother in a house full of memories—and secrets. Soon Rosalind discovers that there’s more to her family history than she ever dreamed. Set in 1960s South Carolina, this unforgettable story of family, friendship, and faith is perfect for readers of all ages.


About the Authors:

Daniel is professor of history emeritus at Ottawa University in Phoenix and held history teaching appointments at East Carolina University and Glendale Community College.  He is the author of I Only Laugh When It Hurts (Pelican Pub. 2009) and coauthor of Nathan Bedford Forrest: In Search of the Enigma (Pelican Pub. 2007) that won the Arizona Book Award for biography and was a finalist in the National Benjamin Franklin Book Awards.

Mary-Helen earned a BA in History from Limestone College and did graduate work in Library Science at Brigham Young University.  Certified in History and English, she recently retired after twenty years with the Peoria Unified School District where she began as Audio-Visual Specialist at Ironwood High School and then operated the Media Resource Center for the district. An avid genealogist, she has researched and authored five books on her family’s history in Georgia and was a contributing editor to the Georgia Genealogical Magazine. The mother of four sons and grandmother of twelve, she is now indulging her interest in writing.

My Review:

I really enjoyed reading Charlie’s Girl.  I stayed up late to finish it.  It was about a 14 year Rosalind who came to live with her Grandma after her parents died. For a number of years she was shuffled from foster home to foster home before her Grandma tracked her down and wanted custody of her.  Rosalind had a hard time at first as the girls at school and church made fun of her.  She was laughed at and talked about.  Then the family next door moved in.  There was a girl her age who she became friends with and an older brother that she liked.  You will need to read the story to see what happens.  I loved the characters and the setting of Charlie’s Girl.  I am sure once you start reading you will not be able to put it down.

Silver-White by Shawn Underhill

“The woods are lovely, dark, and deep,

But I have promises to keep,

And miles to go before I sleep.”

~ Robert Frost

*Evie’s family has been holding out on her …

Big time.

On an unexpected visit to her grandparents’ house in New Hampshire’s secluded North Woods, the sixteen-year-old literally runs into the truth of the long-hidden family secrets, and finds herself thrust without warning into the clandestine world of the Great North Pack—a wild and exhilarating world of rugged beauty, heart-pounding adventures, and long nights running under a sea of stars … but as she’s set to discover, a world also fraught with potential dangers lurking in the shadows.

“Simply put, this book was amazing. I’ve read more fantasy novels than than I can count, but this one is certainly one of the best. The heroine isn’t some wishy-washy pansy that screams at everything, and the focus of the story isn’t on some unbelievably beautiful teenage girl who suddenly becomes the biggest, baddest member of her species falling in love with some big, bad, sexy member of her newfound species. It’s about a girl becoming something she never knew existed, finding her place within the pack family she values more than ever before, and an age-old feud that threatens everything she loves.” ~Morgan

About Secretly Smitten:
Summer, fall, winter, spring-Smitten, Vermont, is the place for love . . . and mystery!
There’s a secret in Grandma Rose’s attic-a forgotten set of dog tags belonging to her first love. But David Hutchins was killed in action and never returned to Smitten. How did the dog tags end up in the attic?

The mystery intrigues Rose’s three granddaughters-Tess, Clare, and Zoe-and they decide to investigate, though their mother, Anna, warns against meddling. But as the seasons turn and the mystery unravels, the three young women and their mother encounter some intriguing mystery men of their own. Has a sixty-year-old puzzle sparked something new for this close-knit family of women?

Join popular romance novelists-and real-life BFFs-Colleen Coble, Kristin Billerbeck, Diann Hunt, and Denise Hunter for four delightful intertwined tales of mystery and sweet intrigue.

My Review:
I really enjoyed reading this book Secretly Smitten.  I love the small town and all the people in it.  The story starts at Natalie’s Bridle shower when Mia finds some military dog tags while playing in the attic.  The girls find out that it is their Grandma’s long lost, thought died boyfriends dog tags.  He had been killed while serving in Korea.  How did they get into their Grandma’s attic?  Was he still alive?  Did someone from his family leave them?  The girls decide to solve this mystery even though their Mother doesn’t want them to.  She is afraid they find out something their Grandmother doesn’t need to know. Along the way of solving the mystery they each find someone special.  You will want to read Secretly Smitten to find out what happens.  I liked the book and hope that another one is on its way.
