5.0 out of 5 stars “As automatic as panicking.”, April 29, 2013

Joana James has a secret formula for instant Christian success. Well, no, it’s not instant, but it will work. These “wisdom bursts” were tougher to write than the first book in the series, I bet, but so necessary. We want to worry, we want to pick up that burden we were supposed to let Jesus have, we want to ask friends instead of asking God. James sets all these normal human behaviors up like tin cans on a fence ail and shoots them right off, pop, pop, pop. Through dark times, through tough times, through the “over and over” times we fail to be like God, we have to listen to these simple, practical lessons. Get up. Go on. Trust God.
4.0 out of 5 stars Faith Makes a Way, April 27, 2013

I hoped the adventure part of this story would get rolling a little sooner, but the reality of life is that it isn’t all fun and fantasy. I loved the part where Patty had to fix up the boat. And the whole point about temptation and deception is that it catches us off guard, so this story is both fantastic and realistic. There are plenty of creatures in Kingsley to delight and keep the interest of young readers. It seems like a perfect “read to me, mommy” kind of story.
4.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Love Casts Out Fear, April 23, 2013

This historical suspense romance has lots to like. Some of the characters reminded me of the Emma Thompson movie version of Sense and Sensibility. Andrew is steadfast and sweet like Edward. Kate, Tara’s little sister, is boisterous like Margaret. Tara is her own person, though. You can feel her fear and sympathize with her keeping life at arm’s length. God, Andrew, and her family all practice persistent love through the terrors of the past and present.
