My first book for this Mailbox was a win from Debbie at debs book bag. The Last Christian deals with futuristic scifi (2088) with combining mans quest for eternal life with God's gift of everlasting life.
I am not very keen on sci fiction type of reading but am looking forward to this book. I also think it is time I got out of my comfort zone reading wise and got into things which I am a bit hazy about . My reading has been almost zero on this type of subject so I am very keen to read this book and come back to you with a review.
Twelve Times Blessed by Jacquelyn Mitchard was a gift from my daughter. The blurb says "A warm and moving novel of love second time around". That would be interesting I am sure.
The story spread over one year deals with a woman trying to balance responsibilities of family with feelings of the heart. I have enjoyed stories which are compartmentalized into days or months before so will enjoy this book I am sure.
The last one Lady of the Roses (also from my daughter) by Sandra Worth is one I have been eyeing for some time. I like historical fiction very much but there is so much of it around and all good and getting the latest is like trying to find a needle in a haystack. This was a really lucky find for me. Her latest book looks wonderful but that will have to wait and I will have to be happy with this one.
The book dealing with the war of the roses and Isobel and John Neville whose enduring love carries them through a very tumultuous period of English history.
I am lucky that over the last couple of months I have had access to such varied reading. Some months are not so! I also like to mix genres - do other readers feel the way I do. Looking forward to everyone else's Mailboxes!
