I recently finished reading Elizabeth Mittlestaedt's inspiring story in Walking In My Shoes. In a small Hungarian village where her family had lost most of their possessions when a communist party took over their country after World War II, is the setting of her childhood. Her family of eleven lived in near poverty. But Elizabeth had dreams of achieving more and longed to pursue higher education to attain those goals, yet circumstances held her bound. The craving for freedom and a better life had gripped her, and wouldn't let go, so she took matters into her own hands, resulting in devastating consequences.

When I take my last breath, life here will end, but I will step into a new beginning that is beyond imagination.

Book ReviewBook Review: At Love's Command
I recently finished At Love's Command by Karen Witemeyer. I've read many of her books. Her writing and storytelling ability are phenomenal. This book does not disappoint. It's a Christian western romance. If you love this genre, you will not want to miss it. I listened to it on Audible, and the narrator did a fantastic job.

Book ReviewBook Review: Meant for Her
This novel pulls you into the story right from the first sentence. Candi has just been rescued from a horrifying situation: kidnap, rape, as well as physical and emotional abuse. The book doesn’t go into every gory detail of the attack, but rather into the emotional turmoil Candi now finds herself in. The faithful support of a loving, older brother who steadfastly and patiently, without judgment, stands beside her and encourages her helps Candi to feel secure. But he can’t be with her all of the time. Through the friendship of a pastor’s wife and the help of a counselor, things Candi had suppressed come to light and allow her to begin to heal.
