The Audacious Molly Bruno

The Audacious Molly Bruno: Amazing Stories from the Life of a Powerful Woman of PrayerTitle: The Audacious Molly Bruno
Author: Marie Armenia
Publisher: FaithWords
ISBN: 978-1-5460-3320-2

“Don’t be afraid to ask God to do whatever you want Him to do as long as you are willing to accept whatever He decides to do,” Molly’s Life Lesson #5 states in Marie Armenia’s book, The Audacious Molly Bruno.

~ What ~
This two-hundred-and-seventy-two paperback targets women who want to improve their relationship with God as it pertains to a ninety-two-year-old prayer warrior. After a foreword by Stephen Kendrick and introduction, the book contains thirteen chapters, two appendixes, acknowledgments, author’s biography, and notes. Due to topics of illness and death, it may not be appropriate for immature readers. Using the New International Version of the Holy Bible, the NLT, KJV, and TLB are also referenced.

In this short spiritual biography, daughter of Molly Bruno, a pastor’s wife with a fervent heart toward God, provides over eighty of her mom’s life lessons of showing Jesus’s love. From the writer’s childhood upbringing to being at her mother’s bedside when she passed into glory with God, the story has recipes for being real, prayer, witnessing, understanding of the Bible, and laughter as well as how to be a godly daughter, wife, and mom and more as seen through the author’s mother. Every chapter contains gray highlighted lessons the daughter learned from her courageous and outspoken mom.

~ Why ~
New Yorker Molly was a feisty, opinionated five-foot-two-inch Italian woman who loved the Lord and wanted to share His love with those she met – anyone, anywhere, anytime. I appreciate the detailed observations and perspectives Molly’s daughter shares about this beloved pastor’s wife and her zeal for God as she promotes the power of prayer. Be it praying for protection from a supposed sniper, eliminating hot flashes, or having unexpected bills paid, Molly truly focused on putting God first in her life, and her daughter adored her for being the person the Almighty wanted her to be.

~ Why Not ~
Those who do not have a personal relationship with Christ or who have no interest in improving their prayer life will pass on this book. Others may find the writer tends to put her mother on a pedestal at times. Some may feel uncomfortable reading the section on her parent’s dreams and visions.

~ Wish ~
While I enjoyed and agreed with the majority of the book promoting prayer, the second chapter concerned me when Marie writes, “There is something familiar to me when I read the prayer of Jesus in the Gospel of John, chapter 17. It’s because His prayer reminds me of my mother’s prayers. The way Jesus speaks to His Father makes it obvious they know and love one another. Sounds like my mother.” It seems awkward to say Jesus’s prayers are like her mom’s – shouldn’t it be the other way around – her prayers are like Jesus’s?

~ Want ~
If you are looking for a biography of one woman’s prayer life told through the viewpoint of her daughter, this may be a good read. As someone who is ardently trying to pray more, I must remember that God is in control and His will “will be done in earth as it is in heaven” Matthew 6:10 KJV.

Surviving ‘Uncle Hitler’

Surviving 'Uncle Hitler': Journey of a German GirlTitle: Surviving ‘Uncle Hitler’
Author: Dorothea Wollin Null
Publisher: First Steps Publishing
ISBN: 978-1-937999-49-2

“Because we never knew what the next day would bring, my fears became an integral part of my life,” Dorothea Wollin Null confesses in her autobiography, Surviving ‘Uncle Hitler’: Journey of a German Girl.

~ What ~
This one-hundred-and-twenty-one-page paperback is an autobiography of the life of a young girl who was born and raised in Germany when Hitler rose to power. With no profanity, a few adult situations and topics on war may not be appropriate for immature readers. The beginning includes acknowledgments and a foreword and brief biography on Adolf Hitler with the ending having an afterword and suggested reading.

Dorothea Wollin Null was born in 1936, and she lived to tell about being homeless, starving, and a Fremma in her own country as she and her family moved to escape Allied bombings, live in refugee camps, and go to school as an outsider. The now-eighty-plus-year-old woman conveys her childhood was racked with fear, the inability to speak, loss of memory, and state of shock while living with a severe attachment disorder. As she explains her birth to being an eighteen-year-old who comes to America, she expresses the lessons learned as a child, parental observances, and how God’s constant provision kept her and her family safe.

~ Wish ~
Because the book only covers the first twenty years of the writer’s life, it is abrupt and leaves the reader wondering what happened to her the next sixty-plus years as it is so vague. I struggled with the written sectional format that lacked depth and emotion. Had she concentrated on several highlighted accounts of her life and went into greater detail, it would be a more engaging read.

~ Want ~
This book that focuses on a young German girl’s perspective of living in Germany during World War II to fleeing to America is a quick read that perhaps those who know her or have heard her speak would be more inclined to enjoy.

Thanks to BookCrash, First Steps Publishing, and the author for this complimentary book that I am under no obligation to review.

Gobi: A Little Dog with a Big Heart

Title: Gobi: A Little Dog with A Big Heart
Author: Dion Leonard
Illustrator:  Lisa Manuzak
Publisher: Tommy Nelson
ISBN: 978-0-7180-7529-3

Maybe you will be my forever friend, Gobi thought as she nuzzled Dion and drifted off to sleep,” Dion Leonard writes in his children’s book Gobi: A Little Dog with A Big Heart.

~ What ~
This thirty-two-page oversized hardbound targets four to eight-year-olds who enjoy stories about a dog finding a friend. With no scary scenes, it would best be read out loud to beginner readers. The bright and bold illustrations grace both sides of the pages with an easy-to-read font.

Based on a true story, Gobi is a scrappy dog living in the desert. When he sees a group of runners, he follows them, hoping to make new friends. The dog befriends Dion, one of the runners in the race who is determined to focus on winning. When the man backtracks to get his faithful follower, the canine knows he has a forever friend.

~ Why ~
This is a charming tale about finding and keeping a friendship. I like how the dog seeks out the runner and sticks close to him, waiting for a sign of acceptance from the man. The drawings are descriptive and expressive.

~ Why Not ~
Some readers may not care for books about dogs. Beginner readers may struggle with some of the tw0- and three-syllable words.

~ Wish ~
Although the book does show the love between a man and his best friend, it does not show a young child the responsibility of having a pet dog.

~ Want ~
If you are looking for a short, happy read about a dog who finds a lifetime friend, this is a keeper.

Thanks to BookLook Bloggers for this complimentary book that I am evaluating by choice.

Esther: Finding Yourself in Times of Trouble

Esther: Finding Yourself in Times of Trouble (Drawn In Bible Study)Title: Esther: Finding Yourself in Times of Trouble
Series: Drawn In Bible Study
Author: Eugene H. Peterson
Publisher: NavPress
ISBN: 978-1-63146-787-5

~ What ~
Part of the Drawn In Bible Study series, this 112-page hardbound targets those who like a creative way to study the book of Esther in the Holy Bible. The story is divided into four sections that are twenty pages each and include black and white illustrations to color, questions, commentary, and author’s notes. The Message of the Holy Bible is quoted, and it ends with notes per chapter on how to lead a Bible study and advertisements.

The story of Esther is told within four chapters that explain her relationships with pagan King Xerxes, cousin Mordecai, evil Haman, and God. With drawings to color, questions with areas to write in answers, and a few highlighted author’s notes, the reader can spend time focusing on how this iconic woman saved many Jews from genocide through her faith in the Almighty.

~ Why ~
Many readers find a deep connection to God by reading His Word and doodling as they concentrate on what is being taught. With Esther being one of my favorite Bible characters, I enjoyed reading her story again and how she trusted God through her trials and tribulations. Including over twenty drawings that include scenes or wording, the story flows between the pages with a total of sixty-five questions spread throughout, ending with comments and prayers.

~ Why Not ~
Those who do not have a personal relationship may not be interested in this type of coloring Bible study book. Others may not care for coloring or doodling. The book does not lay flat so may be hard to color, and some pictures are on both sides of the paper, so felt tip pens may bleed through the pages.

~ Wish ~
Being a fan of the King James Version of the Bible, I do not care for The Message. I wish the illustrations were only on one side of the page so they could be removed and framed.

~ Want ~
If you are looking for a Biblical devotion on Esther with coloring pages for someone creative, this will make an excellent choice.

Counting Down the Beatles

Counting Down the Beatles: Their 100 Finest SongsTitle: Counting Down the Beatles
Author: Jim Beviglia
Publisher: Roman & Littlefield
ISBN: 978-1-4422-7154-8

“As always, these rankings are based solely on my opinions of the songs, not any chart success or cultural impact or anything like that,” Jim Beviglia writes in the introduction of his book, Counting Down the Beatles: Their 100 Finest Songs.

~ What ~
This two-hundred-and-eighteen-page hardbound covers one-hundred songs of the Beatles in an order chosen by the book’s author. After acknowledgments and an introduction, the counted down one-hundred-to-one songs are dissected and explained. The ending includes notes, bibliography, index, and author’s biography.

In this countdown based on the author’s opinions, approximately two pages are written on each song that has the song, album, and year produced in its title. Usually, the paragraphs cover why the artists wrote it, what the song is about, what it sounded like, comparisons to other songs including by other artists, or conflicts about it.

~ Why ~
Without giving the author’s number one favorite Beatle song and not “Because” “I Don’t Want to Spoil the Party,” I liked flipping through to my favorites and reading tidbits about the music or behind-the-scenes interactions. I found interesting that McCartney’s “Michelle” was originally a French tune he had played before he became a Beatle, Lennon was paying tribute to Dylan in “You’ve Got to Hide Your Love Away,” Harrison took a line from James Taylor in “Something,” and “Rain” had Starr’s favorite bit of drumming in it.

~ Why Not ~
Some may not agree with the countdown list of the author, wishing their favorite song or songs were in the top ten. Others may feel there were too many assumptions on the writer’s part of how or why a song may have been written or arranged.

~ Who ~
A writer for American Songwriter magazine, Beviglia has been reviewing and writing about music for ten years, including books of several musician’s countdowns. He lives in Pennsylvania with his family.

~ Wish ~
Being more of a visual person, my husband wished there were pictures of the albums or band included in the book. I found too many of the listings had references to other songs by the band or other artists.

~ Want ~
If you are looking for a book that is a collection of the why, what, and how of a myriad of Beatles songs, this may be your “Ticket to Ride.”

Thanks to Bookpleasures and the author for this complimentary book that I am freely evaluating.

Reflections with God while Waiting to Be Healed

Reflections with God While Waiting to be HealedTitle: Reflections with God While Waiting to Be Healed
Author: Linda Seger
Publisher: Clovercroft Publishing
ISBN: 978-1-942557-70-8

“Although I want God to be the One Who Heals, I have been most amazed at experiencing God as the One who strengthens me, upholds me, and makes it possible for me to endure,” Linda Seger writes in her book, Reflections with God While Waiting to Be Healed.

~ What ~
At one-hundred-and-forty-four pages, this small paperback targets those who are sick, have a disease, or suffer from some physical or emotional illness and want to concentrate on God while dealing with it. After endorsements, dedication, acknowledgments, forward by Dr. Michaele M. Sparaco-Posey, and table of contents, there is an introduction followed by thirty-five short chapters and ending with an afterword by Dr. Gail Henry. The New International Version of the Holy Bible is referenced.

With the author having cervical dystonia and breast cancer, she has journeyed through many different avenues to have a deeper relationship with God. Her book is divided into four sections that cover the questions, concerns, and struggles of an illness or disease, the faith and dialogue of trying to stand within Biblical Job’s circle, how to surrender but also not give up, and having hope in spite of still having the problem.  In the end, she finds not only the value of the in-between of the illness, but also how God’s will and timing allow her to light the way for others who are suffering.

~ Why ~
Although I currently have no debilitating disease, I have had my share of cancer and pain. Seger explains how we are instruments of God when we are sick or ill who have to surrender, fight the Shadow, endure, and learn that not everything has been taken away. I like that the book can be viewed from those healthy or sick, as we yearn to become more intimate with God.

~ Why Not ~
Those who do not believe in God and His loving grace and amazing power may not be interested in this book. Some Christians may disagree with her suggestion of asking for wisdom from Buddha, Mohammed, or a saint. Others may find some of the author’s chosen paths of therapies may be unusual such as the rubbing on of “Holy dirt” from New Mexico, a thirty-day Novena, and wearing a coat hanger on her head.

~ Who ~
A prior film industry script writer, Seger has written fourteen books and given seminars and lectures around the world. A Christian Quaker, she lives in Colorado with her husband and cat.

~ Wish ~
While the writer blends many religious concepts and spiritual therapies for healing, including more Bible verses to meditate on may be helpful for some readers who want to focus on God more and not themselves. I wish there were consistency in capitalizing all pronouns of God for reverence.

~ Want ~
If you or a loved one is suffering from pain or illness and want to cling tighter to God while realizing His timing and ways are always perfect, Seger’s book may help you on your path to acceptance, endurance, and healing if it is God’s will.

All the Pretty Things

All the Pretty Things: The Story of a Southern Girl Who Went through Fire to Find Her Way HomeTitle: All the Pretty Things
Author: Edie Wadsworth
Publisher: Tyndale House Publishers, Inc.
ISBN: 978-1-4964-0338-4

“What Daddy looked for in the bottom of the bottle, I looked for on the faces of everyone I met. I guess we weren’t that different after all,” Edie Wadsworth realizes in her memoir, All the Pretty Things.

~ What ~
At three-hundred-and-twenty pages, this paperback targets those who like reading a redemptive story of a strong, determined woman who finds God after repeatedly stumbling through life. With no profanity except using the word hell a couple of times, topics of alcohol consumption, adultery, and death may not be appropriate for immature readers. The English Standard Version of the Holy Bible is referenced. Following the afterword, the book includes acknowledgments, eleven discussion questions, notes, and the author’s biography.

Writing her story at age forty-six, Wadsworth has learned a lot having been raised in the Appalachians by a dysfunctional family. Ever committed to her father, she is enamored by his charm and easy-going attitude even though she feels she has to protect him from his constant alcoholic binges. Raised by divorced parents and an eclectic extended family, she lives life on the cusp, hoping she will be different than her clan and exist in a perfectly pretty environment.

By avoiding confrontation at all costs, she strives to be what she thinks is normal while burning down her life making wrong decisions and choices as an adult. From being the homecoming queen, dropping out of a Christian college, and marrying an older man to getting into medical school, remarrying, and raising children, she feels broken and unworthy until she understands that God has allowed her trials and tribulations for her to surrender to Him completely.

~ Why ~
When we falter in life and turn our backs on God, there are consequences that alter our life. I like how the author realized her many mistakes and how they correlated to her family upbringing and her father. Finally, with God’s help, she begins to overcome the disappointments, guilt, and self-loathing into healing and forgiving others and herself. The story is well written and engaging, bringing to mind that all of us have fallen short of the glory of God.

~ Why Not ~
Some may not like reading a biography that dwells on one’s women’s childhood of hunger, pain, and neglect while having to pick up the pieces of a destructive alcoholic father who is idolized. Others may not like a depressive story about a girl who felt broken, unloved, and guilt-ridden.

~ Who ~
Wadsworth overcame her dark and painful past and became a family practice physician and then an author, blogger, and speaker who has been featured in various media.

~ Wish ~
Having not been in Wadsworth’s shoes of her childhood, I could not relate to many parts of her book, so I wish her much grace and love on her path to getting closer to God. I did find some repetitiveness in her writing, which probably verifies her intense mindset relating to her father and fractured family dynamics.

~ Want ~
If you want a book that focuses on one woman’s walk through a troubled upbringing to the glorious acceptance of God’s eternal love, this would be a good read for one on the brink of becoming an alcoholic or wishing to understand a rooted family issue that affects many. Kudos to Edie for making her cliff jump count.

Unexpected Journeys

Unexpected Journeys: My Search for Adventure, Love, and Redemption on the Other Side of the WorldTitle: Unexpected Journeys
Author: Paul Perkins
Publisher: Whitaker House
ISBN: 978-1-62911-699-0

“I needed to travel far away, attempt life on the other side of the world, to find I couldn’t get away from myself. If I wanted a life of wholeness and joy, I needed to make peace with who I was – everything I’d been through,” Paul Perkins writes in his book, Unexpected Journeys.

~ What ~
This two-hundred-forty-page paperback targets those who enjoy a spiritual “coming of age” of one’s man’s journey overcoming a guilt-ridden past. With quoted cussing and topics of smoking, drug use, and sexual content, it may not be appropriate for immature readers. After the author’s note, four parts cover Perkins’s travels in four countries, ending with acknowledgments and a biography.

At age twenty-eight, Paul Perkins left for a three month trip to Indonesia, Thailand, and India, after taking legal exams to become an attorney. While experiencing the culture, food, and scenery of the foreign lands, the soul-searching man who was considering marriage tried to understand the loneliness, isolation, guilt, shame, and lack of intimacy in his life. Dealing with partying friends, surfing, having a rat roommate, getting a ride from a ladyboy, and speaking about his faith, the pastor’s kid found redemption and freedom when he embraced uncertainty and abandoned expectations, realizing God used the experiences to mold him into a better man.

~ Why ~
Coming to terms with one’s past can be devastating yet cleansing and full of grace. I like how Perkins bared his heart to overcome the flashbacks and shame of childhood sexual abuse, showing how it followed him into areas of his adult life.

~ Why Not ~
Those who do not have a relationship with Jesus Christ may not understand what the author went through while processing that God is ultimately in control and allows events in each of our lives. Others may not like a book that focuses on traveling through parts of Asia.

~ Who ~
A former White House staffer and clerk for the US Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, the author is a Washington DC lawyer with a wife and daughter.

~ Wish ~
I wish the book contained more regarding the author’s relationship with his wife. I prefer capitalization of all pronouns of God for reverence.

~ Want ~
If you are looking for a memoir of a young man’s maturity emotionally and spiritually as he overcomes his past, this one promotes that God is always there with us, no matter what we endure.

Thanks to the Book Club Network for offering this book to read and review for my honest opinion.

Promises

PromisesTitle: Promises
Author: Ardyce Durham
Publisher: Sarah Book Publishing
ISBN: 978-1-61456-44-1

“I promised an’ I never goes back on a promised sealed with a han’shake. Fer sure, me an’ Wes never goes back on our words to one ‘nother, ” Owen remembers Wes in Ardyce Durham’s novel, Promises.

~ What ~
This 389-page paperback targets those who like historical fiction about America’s South in the late eighteen hundreds. Without too much graphic details, the topics of sex, moonshine, injuries, imprisonment, and death may not be appropriate for immature readers. Incorrect spelling is used for emphasis of dialect.

In this tale that begins in Tennessee in 1848, two young neighbor boys become best friends, including when they move to Mississippi and join the Confederate Army. When Wes is dying at the Battle of Gettysburg, Owen makes him a promise to keep no matter what. Although he has to lie about what happened after the war, Owen fulfills his promise to Wes and lives a long life of happiness with a marriage producing children to great-grandchildren. It is when he is in his late nineties that he confides what happened to his best friend and to him after the war.

~Why ~
Learning about the past and how people lived is interesting, especially if it involves America’s Civil War. I like how this story covers the gambit of two friends, their families, and memories that are fictionalized by the author regarding her paternal great-grandfather from the South.

~ Why Not ~
Some may not like reading about war, abuse, and death, especially when it involves the bloody Civil War. Others may find the story initially slow to start and pick up about a hundred pages into the book. As a speed-reader, I found it rather challenging when it came to the Southern dialogue of intentionally misspelled words. Over time, I had to avoid some of these sections as they took too much time to decipher,  or I had to reread them several times to comprehend, but I did grasp the story’s contents and highlights.

~ Who ~
Retired, Durham has had careers ranging from teacher to truck driver to nursery worker. A widow, she lives in Texas and enjoys updating her ninety-year-old house.

~ Wish ~
Personally, I wish there were less hard-to-read conversations for those readers who read quickly. Also, not having repetition of the stories throughout the book would be helpful.

~ Want ~
If you are looking for a detailed account of one fictional man’s life that covers almost one hundred years in the South and surrounds the Civil War and its aftermath, this may be a good one for you. I found it a little tedious and repetitive, but that is due to my personal preference as a speed-reader.

Rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

Thanks to the author for the book to read and review.

Like a River from Its Course

Title: Like a River from Its Course
Author: Kelli Stuart
Publisher: Kregel Publications
ISBN: 978-0-8254-4414-2

“There must be more to this wretched life,” Ivan confesses in Kelli Stuart’s book, Like a River from Its Course.

~ What ~
This three-hundred-fifty-two-page paperback targets those who like engaging, Christian historical fiction of World War Two’s atrocities Using a quoted cuss word and topics of torture, rape, and mass executions, it may not be appropriate for immature readers.

Written in first person by four individuals whose lives do not all intersect, this tragedy of war in the 1940s in the Ukraine covers both Nazi and the Soviet Union viewpoints. There is Fredrick Herrmann, a German who is desperate for his father’s approval and would do anything for the love and honor of his country. Fourteen-year-old Maria from Kiev is sent to a work camp, to be noticed by a soldier with inappropriate motives who wants to protect her. Maria’s father, Ivan, fakes being executed in the “killing ditch” of Babi Yar while trying to protect a young Jewish girl and faces a heartbreaking recovery. Lastly, there is Luda, a sixteen-year-old girl who is gang-raped and finds herself pregnant by an unknown German yet wanting to keep her baby safe.

While all four people get involved in the horrors of war and its tumultuous aftermath, each must search their soul to do what is right.

~ Why ~
This book is captivating yet disturbing with its gripping graphic scenes of hatred and pain. I like how the four characters told their story in first person, each dealing with their unfathomable circumstance.

~ Why Not ~
Those who believe the Holocaust never happened or do not like a detailed account of rape, murder, and death will not read this book. Although the tale is fictional but based on true stories gathered from fifteen years of research and survivors’ interviews, it may be too emotional for some to comprehend.

~ Who ~
Co-author of two other books, Stuart has been an editor-in-chief for the St. Louis Bloggers Guild and board member of the St. Louis Women in Media. She is a writer, ghostwriter, blogger, and world traveler who lives in Florida.

~ Wish ~
With the epilogue a little abrupt, it would be nice to have a sequel to the book regarding the main characters.

~ Want ~
If you want a gruesome depiction of war that includes love, belief in God, and the struggle to survive, this is a keeper that brings to life the realities, hardships, and undying devotion of others.

Thanks to Kregel Publications and the author for offering this book to read and review.
