MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BIBLE/DEVOTIONAL

This is an awesome Bible/Devotional set for children. I was very surprised and pleased when I rec’d this. It is much nicer than I expected.  The Bible is a full text Bible, written in a little larger font to make it easier to read. And the NIrV has not notes, which makes it great for reading only. The Devotional is adorable. It has a verse for each 365 day of the year, and the devotion is a small paragraph. When my 6 year old niece saw this she immediately started reading the devotions. I love that it is simple enough that she could read it at six years old, yet it is the same Bible promises and truths that we read every day.

If you are looking for a new Bible and Devotional for your child, this is the one to check out. You will not be disappointed in this one!  I received this book from BookLook BLoggers to read and review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

Book Description

Emmie finds shelter in the arms of a soldier, but her secret could drive them apart.

When Emmie Croftner answered the door to her late husband’s home, she discovered a terrible truth. A woman she’s never met reveals that she and Emmie shared the same husband and that the bigamist had never divorced his first wife. The home and farm are not Emmie’s property after all.

But when she arrives, she discovers she’s carrying a child, conceived before her husband’s death. Was the new start she’d hoped for only a mirage?

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

A Heart’s Betrayal is the fourth book in Colleen Coble’s A Journey of the Heat Series. This series is a previous series from Ms. Coble, this one is a very short book for each story. In this story, Emmie Croftner finds out that her late husband wasn’t the man she thought he was, the home and everything she had wasn’t hers after all. After relocating, Emmie meets a soldier that just might change her life.

As usual, Colleen Coble writes a story with characters are interesting and intriguing, and make the story interesting. The situations in Emmie’s life leave her with a life of tension, so much so that she can’t stay in her town any longer. This change in her life leaves a more and different type of tension, because of her new place and new people in her life. The one thing with these short books is that you have to wait a month to read the next short installment. For me, it is much easier to read the entire story at once. I am keeping all of these books and will read them again one after the other!

A Heart’s Obsession by Colleen Coble

A Heart’s Obsession

A Journey of the Heart Series 

by Colleen Coble

a hearts obsession

Book Description

Can a woman held captive by her family make it back to the one man she knows she can trust?

When Sarah Montgomery’s father succumbs to his long illness, Sarah is faced with a life-altering choice: submit to her brother’s will and marry the deceptive Ben Croftner . . . or escape through the dangerous American West to reclaim the heart of her beloved Rand Campbell at Fort Laramie, Wyoming.

From captivity in her family’s home, Sarah makes her decision-and begins the perilous journey to Wyoming by train.

But even in the company of Rand’s brother, Sarah does not receive the reception she had hoped for. The necessity of a military wife has preempted her, and Rand is already engaged to Jessica DuBois, the seductive daughter of the post commander.

With her heart broken and her life in ruins, Sarah has no choice but to remain at Fort Laramie and try to win Rand back. But things will get tougher before they get easier . . . the obsessive Ben Croftner has just shown up in Wyoming.

What I think

 Sarah Montgomery finally gets to join her fiancée Rand Campbell, in Fort Laramie, Wyoming but is he really excited to see her? Seems like he has found someone else to occupy his time, making life difficult for Sarah. But then when ex-fiancé Ben Croftner shows up in Wyoming, things get a little more exciting, or maybe we could say tension was filling the air more than ever.

A Heart’s Obsession is another short story in Colleen Coble’s A Journey of the Heart Series.  a reissue of the Wyoming series published around a decade, and back this time in 6 short books. Though I like short books sometimes, its kind of frustrating that we as readers have to wait so long for the next chapters in the book. Its like reading a few chapters, putting the book down, and after a month picking it back up again. I am just not fond of this type of reading myself. But as far as the story, I love it! It is awesome, just as all of Colleen Coble books are!! I will keep them all, and read them again in the order of the series, and will enjoy them much more. I hope this is not a trend that publishers are heading toward, but it will be interesting to see.
