The Day Punctuation Came to Town

Title: The Day Punctuation Came to Town
Author: Kimberlee Gard
Illustrator: Sandie Sonke
Publisher: Familius
ISBN: 978-1-64170-145-7

“We’re the Punctuation family, and we all work together to help letters and the words they make,” the Period explains in Kimberlee Gard’s children’s book, The Day Punctuation Came to Town.

~ What ~
The second book in the Language is Fun series, this thirty-two-page hardbound targets children five to eight years old who want to learn about using punctuation with writing sentences. With no scary scenes but colorful illustrations, it is about a family of four punctuation symbols who come to town and go to school with alphabet letters that make words. Its jacket cover includes a synopsis of the book, nine habits of happy family life, and biographies of the author and illustrator.

In this charming story, the Punctuation family moves to town and goes to school with a bunch of letters. As each introduces itself to the class, it explains what it does. While the exclamation point explains it adds excitement, the question mark asks questions; the period ends sentences, and the comma keeps the words organized. As the day progresses, the comma feels left out so sneaks out of the room, and the other punctuation marks find it, showing how important it is to letters when making words and sentences.

~ Why ~
I am fanatical about punctuation and sad to see so many people today do not know the correct rules, so it is important to teach young ones the proper way to use the exclamation point, question mark, period, and comma. I appreciate that this story is fun and interesting while educating first and second graders how and when to use them.

~ Why Not ~
The book contains many multi-syllable words that may frustrate beginner readers, but it also is a way to learn new words. The comma is not thoroughly explained, but its simplification makes sense based on the age group targeted for the book.

~ Wish ~
I found the rudimentary illustrations with limited backgrounds may not engage some readers. I hope more books are added to the series that is focused on language.

~ Want ~
If your child is starting to understand the need and purpose of using punctuation, this is an excellent way to teach them about the four symbols in a cute, clever way.

The Reluctant Belle

A Reluctant Belle (Daughtry House Book #2) by [White, Beth]Title: Reluctant Belle
Author: Beth White
Publisher: Revell
ISBN: 978-0-8007-2690-4

“What do you want from me? We can’t be confidants any ore. We can’t even be—argument mates anymore,” Joelle is told in Beth White’s novel, Reluctant Belle.

~ What ~
The second in the Daughtry House series, this three-hundred-and-sixty-eight-page paperback targets those interested in a historical romance set in the South during the middle of the Reconstruction Era. With no profanity, topics of abuse, torture, and murder may not be appropriate for immature readers. The ending includes a note to the reader, an excerpt of another novel, acknowledgments, and the author’s biography with advertisements.

In this tale set in 1870 in Mississippi, twenty-two-year-old Joelle Daughtry has her hands full being betrothed to the local pastor while she helps run a resort hotel and writes under a male pseudonym newspaper articles that promote helping former slaves. However, knowing she rushed into accepting her marriage proposal due to the ongoing frustration with Schuyler Beaumont, a hotel investor she has known since childhood, their love/hate relationship has to be put on the back burner to uncover who murdered his father.

~ Why ~
I enjoy novels where I learn about America’s history, especially when slavery was abolished. I appreciated the details of the Southern culture. The story focuses on how freedom started spread among slaves and lines were drawn between the Lincolnites, Union League, and Ku Klux Klan. The bantering between the two protagonists was charming and engaging at times.

~ Why Not ~
Those who do not like stories of the persecution of freed slaves may pass on this book. Others may wish some of the characters were not stereotypical and the romance predictable. I found Joelle to be a bit too flawless as a teacher, journalist, and hotel manager who seemed wishy-washy when it came to love.

~ Wish ~
Since this is a part of a series and I did not read the first book, I wish there were a list of characters since there is a plethora of people mentioned. I prefer all pronouns of God capitalized for reverence.

~ Want ~
If you like a historical novel of the South’s conflict over race and politics, this is a quick and cozy read of romance that includes solving a murder.

Wooing Cadie McCaffrey

Title: Wooing Cadie McCaffrey
Author: Bethany Turner
Publisher: Revell
ISBN: 978-0-8007-3522-7

“Well then, Cadie McCaffrey,  I think that’s just about the most romantic thing I have ever heard in my entire life,” the confused protagonist is told in Bethany Turner’s novel, Wooing Cadie McCaffrey.

~ What ~
This three-hundred-and-thirty-seven-page paperback targets those interested in contemporary Christian romance. With no profanity but the use of slang words such as heck and crap, topics of premarital sex may not be appropriate for immature readers. The ending includes an excerpt of the author’s prior book, acknowledgments and the writer’s biography with advertisements.

In this quirky romantic tale, millennials Cadie and Will have been dating for four years without the promise of marriage to Cadie’s chagrin. Thinking that he is her one and only, she starts to question their relationship as she considers he no longer is in love with her as he climbs the corporate ladder where they both work. One who expects a happily-ever-after based on romantic movies, she misunderstands his intentions after they break the rules and she rejects him. With the help of his work cohorts, it is up to Will to win and woo her back, even if he is forced to look like a love-craved fool.

~ Why ~
I enjoy stories that are written in first person, and this one is partially from Cadie’s perspective. I like the author’s breezy writing style and references to movies, books, and songs of her generation (and some of mine). The book deals with love, sex, marriage, and relationships in a carefree platform that sometimes mention Christ and His forgiveness.

~ Why Not ~
Those who do not like stories of how unmarried Christians deal with disagreements, romance, and premarital sex may not like this read. Others may feel it does not focus enough on relying on God or going to Him for answers and help as there are no references to Scripture, just quick prayers to resolve ones’ problems. I found Cadie to be somewhat of a spoiled brat who was self-absorbed, never realizing many of the misunderstandings were her fault.

~ Wish ~
Although I enjoyed the author’s easy-breezy writing style, I found the main’s characterization often grating, where she is considered too perfect and wonderful by others. I prefer that all pronouns of God capitalized for reverence.

~ Want ~
If you like a romance between two young people in love who must mature by stepping back and reevaluating their relationship through mistakes and promises, this may be an innocuous read that is predictable.

Living Lies

Title: Living Lies
Author: Natalie Walters
Publisher: Revell
ISBN: 978-0-8007-3532-7

“But believing she deserved someone like Charlie–that he could love someone like her–was just another lie she wasn’t willing to live,” Lane tells herself in Natalie Walters’s novel, Living Lies.

~ What ~
The first in the Harbored Secretes series, this three-hundred-and-thirty-four-page paperback targets those interested in the struggles of dealing with depression while trying to move ahead with life. Using slang words such as heck and crap, topics of bullying, PTSD, murder, and death may not be appropriate for immature readers. The ending includes acknowledgments, the author’s biography, and an advertisement.

In this story, Lane Kent has been fighting her demons of depression for years, trying to keep them at bay by pretending she is fine. When she moves back to her hometown with her young son, she hides her biggest secret until she meets Charlie, the new deputy who lives next door. After Lane accidentally discovers the body of a young teenager, she must find her purpose of life while Charlie races to find the killer.

~ Why ~
As a debut novel, the author writes with detail and excitement as she keeps the reader wanting to turn the pages to find out if Lane will be able to accept the past and move on in her relationships, especially with Charlie. The murder of a young girl, confusion of a Vietnam veteran, and regret of the protagonist show how people learn to deal with tragedy while accepting God’s love and purpose.

~ Why Not ~
Those who do not like romantic suspense with a touch of Christianity and praying to God may not appreciate this read. Others may not like a book that shows how depression and anxiety can overtake and debilitate a life or lives.

~ Wish ~
Adding discussion questions at the end would be thoughtful for book clubs to discuss its important topics. I wish more references of trusting in God were included and all pronouns of God were capitalized for reverence.

~ Want ~
If you like a book that shows the problems and issues of depression and how it should not be ignored or made fun of, this is a good read that adds the redemption of romance and suspense.

Rise of the Mystics

Title: Rise of the Mystics
Author: Ted Dekker
Publisher: Revell
ISBN: 978-0-8007-3599-9

“I was the 49th Mystic, and I was searching for the Five Seals of Truth before the Realm of Mystics could be destroyed,” Rachelle remembers in Ted Dekker’s novel, Rise of the Mystics.

~ What ~
Part two of two in the Beyond the Circle series, this four-hundred-and-eighteen-page paperback targets those who enjoy futuristic mystical fiction with other-worldly characters and analogies to Christianity. Using slang words such as crap and heck, topics of dream-control, imprisonment, torture, and death may not be appropriate for immature readers. The ending has the author’s biography and advertisements plus Talya’s Journal on the Forgotten Way. Using mainly the New American Standard Bible, the ABPE, BLB, ESV, HCSB, ISV, KJV, NHEB, and NIV are also referenced.

In this sequel to the first book that is set in the future on two worlds that are two-hundred years apart, Rachelle continues to travel between the Earth and Other Earth whenever she dreams to overcome Vlad Smith and his evil plans. As she deals with two worlds of polarity, she surrenders herself to loving without judgment as her memory gets wiped in one world and she turns into one she abhors in another in her quest to uncover the fourth and fifth seal to save the Realm. It is only until she learns True Love that she can save those around her and herself.

~ Why ~
This is a sci-fi fantasy complete with good and evil, love versus hatred, and acceptance with understanding. The author writes with vivid detail, often in first person from the protagonist’s view of having forgotten who she is and what she needs to do. It promotes that true love holds no record of wrong and how hatred is devastating. I appreciated it contains a recap of the first book at its beginning.

~ Why Not ~
Those who do not like futuristic fiction that involves mysticism, allegory, and fantasy will pass on this read. Some may feel the book gets complicated with two ongoing worlds that do not track as well as the first book. Others may find its connection to Scripture not completely Biblical, sometimes confusing and conflicting.

~ Wish ~
Having read the prior book, I found this one even more of a challenge as it includes out-of-context Biblical theory and sometimes randomly. Some may question if it endorses an accurate plan of eternal salvation as there was no asking forgiveness of sin, Jesus shedding His blood on the cross, or His resurrection but more of a “follow your heart – all is love” concept. Although I liked some of both worlds’ characters, I found the conclusion baffling regarding universal redemption and the journal’s interpretations and applications sometimes misrepresenting. Due to stretching the Bible to accommodate the story and vice versa, I agreed with Vlad telling Aaron and David on page 68, “You must know by now that if you torture any scripture long enough, you can get it to say whatever you want.” I prefer all pronouns of God capitalized for reference.

~ Want ~
If you like a futuristic book about True Love in two dark worlds, this may interest you, but I found it too confusing, rambling, and perhaps distorted from Biblical theology so cannot promote it as Christian fantasy.

The Heart of a King

Title: The Heart of a King
Author: Jill Eileen Smith
Publisher: Revell
ISBN: 978-0-8007-2240-1

“Sometimes foolishness is overconfidence in one’s own wisdom. And pride had changed everything,” the Teacher writes in the Prelude of Jill Eileen Smith’s Biblical fiction novel, The Heart of a King: The Loves of Solomon.

~ What ~
This four-hundred-and-twenty-five-page paperback targets those who enjoy an enhanced version of the Biblical story of King Solomon and four of his many wives. Containing no profanity or explicit sexual scenes, topics of murder and death may not be appropriate for immature readers. An author’s note, acknowledgments, biography, and advertisements complete the book.

In this loosely retold story taken from the Old Testament, Solomon marries his first wife and childhood friend before he becomes the king of Israel. An Ammonite who believes in Solomon’s God, Naamah is in love with Solomon and wants to be his only wife.

When Solomon’s father dies and Solomon becomes king, he marries Abishag, King David’s young wife, a Hebrew shepherdess who takes care of him before he dies. The marriage is not only to establish Solomon’s kingdom but also one based on love for one another.

Factitious Siti, the daughter of an Egyptian pharaoh, becomes another wife of Solomon as a political pawn to control Gezer. Although Solomon struggles with his new wife’s pagan foreign gods, he slowly allows her to keep her idols outside the city of Jerusalem.

Years later, Solomon is fascinated by Nicaula, the Queen of Sheba, who desires a husband and child yet cannot give up her status and position in her homeland. The two devise a way to love while not putting their countries in jeopardy.

All four of the marriages test Solomon as he looks toward God for answers. When he focuses on what wisdom can do for him and those he loves, he forgets the One who gave him the wisdom, later realizing the meaning of life is to fear God and keep His Word.

~ Why Not ~
Those who do not like fictionalized Bible stories may pass on this one as the author has used ample liberties to enhance the story. With the Queen of Sheba marrying Solomon and multiple added characters, the story is fabricated. Some may find the romantic love the king had for these four women repetitive in conveying although he supposedly loved them for different reasons.

~ Wish ~
I liked the detailed descriptions of life in Israel in the Old Testament, I found Solomon’s hunger for love and lust not what I expected compared to the Scriptures and wish the novel was more accurate (which may be hard since the Bible contains little information about his wives). With a plethora of characters, it would be helpful having a list at the beginning of the book.

~ Want ~
If you enjoy learning about King Solomon’s love of women in a fictionalized setting based loosely on Scripture, this historical story shows how the man became caught up in his wisdom while disobeying God’s law about marrying foreign wives and allowing them to worship their gods in Israel.

On a Summer Tide

Title: On a Summer Tide
Author: Suzanne Woods Fisher
Publisher: Revell
ISBN: 978-0-8007-3498-5

“I’m calling it Three Sisters Island … Because someday, my dear daughters, it’ll all be yours,” Paul Grayson declares in Suzanne Woods Fisher’s novel, On a Summer Tide.

~ What ~
The first in the Three Sisters Island series, this three-hundred-and-eight-page paperback targets those who enjoy contemporary Christian fiction regarding family interactions. Using slang words such as darn and heck, topics of premarital sex, injury, and death may not be appropriate for immature readers. Using the English Standard Version of the Holy Bible, the beginning has a cast of characters while the ending includes a dessert recipe, excerpts from another book by the author, thirteen discussion questions, acknowledgments, biography, and advertisements.

In this current-day story set in Maine, a widowed father decides to sell the family home and buy a summer camp on a remote island. To the dismay of his three daughters who think he has onset dementia, the man talks all of them into helping him get the dilapidated camp up and running.

The eldest daughter is a workaholic and loves her job but must come to terms with the quirkiness of her adopted son while the middle daughter tends to be overbearing when it involves her vocation of counseling. The youngest, a college student at a pivotal point in life, is trying to figure out what to do next. As each woman sees the beauty and simplicity of the island, they understand what is important, even if they have to sacrifice what they thought they wanted.

~ Why ~
This is a cute read about how three different women approach life, love, family, and, most importantly, God. I loved reading about the island and its eclectic residents. I felt I was walking the streets with the girls, seeing the beautiful views, and taking in the sights and sounds of the island.

~ Why Not ~
Those who do not have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ may not appreciate the Christian undertones that include Scripture and praying to God. Others may not like a predictable romance with most everything being worked out too perfectly. I found some of the characters stereotypical.

~ Wish ~
Since this is the first in the series, there are a lot of incomplete holes in what happens to the family. I prefer all pronouns of God capitalized for reference.

~ Want ~
If you like a contemporary Christian read about family dynamics and love, this novel nicely occupies your time for several hours of relaxation.

The 49th Mystic

Title: The 49th Mystic
Author: Ted Dekker
Publisher: Revell
ISBN: 978-0-8007-3598-2

“Find the five seals for yourself, 49th. When you do, you will know your origin and you will recognize yourself. What happens to you will happen to all,” Rachelle is told in Ted Dekker’s novel, The 49th Mystic.

~ What ~
Part one of two in the Beyond the Circle series, this four-hundred-and-thirty-three-page paperback targets those who enjoy futuristic mystical fiction with other-worldly characters and analogies to Christianity. Using slang words such as crap, heck, and bastard, topics of dream-control, imprisonment, torture, and death may not be appropriate for immature readers. The ending has the author’s biography and advertisements plus Talya’s Journal on the Forgotten Way. Using mainly the New American Standard Bible, the ABPE, BLB, ESV, HCSB, ISV, KJV, NHEB, and NIV are also referenced.

In this story set in the future on two worlds that are two-hundred years apart, Rachelle is a blind-from-birth teenager who is wrought with fear and uncertainty because every time she falls asleep and dreams, she travels between her life with her father in the idealistic self-sufficient religion-ruled town of Eden, Utah, and a netherworld of fighting Hordes, fleeing Albinos, Elyon warriors, mystical men named Justin and Talya, and evil creatures. When she is told she is the 49th Mystic to save both worlds by uncovering five ancient seals, she must go on a journey from fear to love, darkness to light, and blindness to sight.

~ Why ~
This is a sci-fi fantasy complete with good and evil, control compared to peace, and fear versus freedom. The author writes with vivid detail, often in first person from the protagonist’s view of being blind to able to see. It has undertones of God’s infinite power, unthreatening love, and unfailing grace as it weaves in Biblical theology through both worlds, including knowing the Truth and the effects of legalism.

~ Why Not ~
Those who do not like futuristic fiction that involves mysticism, allegory, and fantasy will pass on this read. Some may feel the book gets complicated with two ongoing worlds and Rachelle solving three of the five seals. Others may find the connection to Scripture not completely Biblical, sometimes confusing and conflicting. It is not a finished book; the last two seals are found in its sequel.

~ Wish ~
Having read other Dekker books, I found this one a struggle to get through as it seemed to jump around in Rachelle determining the meanings of the seals. Although I liked some of the Other Earth’s characters, I found the conclusion hanging and the journal’s interpretations and applications sometimes misrepresenting. I prefer all pronouns of God capitalized for reference.

~ Want ~
If you like a futuristic book about learning to find the Light in two dark worlds, this may be a good read that would be appreciated by the young adult market.

Midnight at the Tuscany Hotel

Title: Midnight at the Tuscany Hotel
Author: James Markert
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
ISBN: 978-0-7852-1909-5

“Rumor is, at the Tuscany Hotel, you forget all your worries, so your creativity can thrive,” Valerie is told in James Markert’s novel, Midnight at the Tuscany Hotel.

~ What ~
This three-hundred-and-sixty-eight-page paperback is targeted toward those who enjoy a mystical read about memory, forgetting the past, and accepting outcomes of life. Using the slang word darn, topics of physical abuse and death may not be appropriate for immature readers. The ending includes a note from the author, acknowledgments, twelve discussion questions, another book excerpt from the writer, and the author’s biography.

Set in California after World War II, this story involves shell-shocked Vitto Gandy who returns home from war as a different man. When his aging father with Alzheimer’s disease is missing, the son knows exactly where to find him – at his defunct Tuscany Hotel. Abandoned for years, the hotel that used to be a haven of creativity turns into a magical nirvana where, by drinking its fountain’s water, one’s memory is miraculously restored with a catch.

As Vitto learns about his parents’ pasts and recalls the Greek and Roman mythology he was told as a child and is displayed throughout the statues, carvings, frescos, and paintings in the hotel, he must learn to paint “the real” to find redemption and inner peace.

~ Why ~
Written with well-defined characters, the book shows how often memories fade as age overtakes, wishing there could be a make-believe antidote for the body and mind by the simple act of drinking a magical potion. I appreciated the compassion of some of the characters and how several relationships evolved and changed when memories improved.

~ Why Not ~
Those who do not like stories about mystical waters curing lost memories, humans who believe they are reincarnated gods, and mythological history should avoid this book. Some may not like that the true God, Jesus Christ, and the eternal plan of salvation are never discussed, even though there are touches of Catholicism, confessions, and requests of hail Marys.

~ Wish ~
My number one issue with this book was that its publisher, Thomas Nelson, is normally known to promote Christian concepts and themes, yet this book contains a plethora of mysticism involving gods, goddesses, and the underworld. Being a Christian, I am so disappointed in Thomas Nelson’s recent switch to these types of books that are supposedly “spiritual” without even mentioning a relationship with Jesus Christ. With the last two fictions I have read from this publisher being so far from the Truth, I am leery of reading any more of their published works so have drastically rated this one down. I did think the author did a good job telling his eclectic story; I strongly wish he took a different approach when it came to death and dying.

~ Want ~
If you enjoy a read that promotes belief in something (not Someone) while weaving a tale of memory loss and aging, this might be for you, but I found the gods and goddesses mentioned in it are not the Real Answer when searching for peace and happiness.

The Baggage Handler

Title: The Baggage Handler
Author: David Rawlings
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
ISBN: 978-0-7852-2493-9

“I am the Baggage Handler. Do you need some help with your baggage?” three troubled individuals are asked in David Rawlings’s novel, The Baggage Handler.

~ What ~
This two-hundred-and-forty-page small hardbound targets those interested in an allegory about dealing with one’s baggage – the kind that you carry around with you unknowingly as it alters, changes, and disrupts your life. Using the slang word heck and darn, topics of adultery may not be appropriate for immature readers. The ending includes a note from the author, discussion questions, acknowledgments, and advertisements.

In this current day allegory, three different characters’ lives are challenged when their similar-looking luggage is erroneously switched at the airport. While young Michael wants to break away from his father’s proposed footsteps, Gillian wishes for a perfect life like her sister’s, and David’s deep-rooted anger obstructs forgiveness, they all encounter the Baggage Handler, the one person who can help them eliminate their unwanted, unneeded, and damaging baggage. As each deal with their issues differently, they must make the choice of getting rid of their burdens or continue to carry their emotional load.

~ Why ~
Since we all carry some sort of baggage with us throughout our lives, this is an eye-opening book that may stop one in their tracks to circumspectly examine their own lives and consider what baggage they carry. I enjoyed the diversity of the three characters and how they approached or refuted their flawed personalities. The common problems of pleasing others instead of oneself, envy by comparison, and hurtful bitterness show how pride plays an important part in holding on to the past. The story is well-written and gripping.

~ Why Not ~
Those who do not like modern day parables with a supernatural twist of a being who can help lighten life’s load will not appreciate this book. Without mentioning God or Jesus, the reader is left to guess the role of the Baggage Handler is only to help a person get rid of their baggage and not be the only One who can save them. There is no eternal plan of salvation, only choices offered to rid themselves of not standing up for who they are, hating themselves, or holding grudges.

~ Wish ~
I did indeed enjoy this read, but my conscience knawed at its lack of mentioning Jesus is the only Way, Truth, Life, and the propitiation for sin and our ever-present faults. How much better the book would have been if it included praying to the Almighty for forgiveness, realizing God’s incredible love for us, and accepting others as He has us.

~ Want ~
If you are dealing with baggage of your own such as self-doubt, self-loathing, and self-pity, this tale of learning respect, finding inner beauty, and letting go is heartwarming, but it may not explain the True Baggage Handler who died on the cross for you.
