Beth recommends The Wonder by Emma Donaghue

A Letter from Lancaster CountyThe Wonder by Emma Donaghue is a haunting novel that historical fiction fans will love. Even though I’m not typically a fan of this genre, this book kept me up turning the pages until late in the night.

In the story, eleven-year-old Anna isn’t eating, and supposedly she hasn’t consumed anything but water for four months. Why is she still alive? Is she a saint, or is there something more sinister at work? Two nurses–a nun and a young widow–are brought in to watch the girl, to see if she eats, or if it’s true–that she is living on a few teaspoons of water per day.

A satisfying and surprise ending will leave this story on your mind for a long time. Donaghue is also the author of the contemporary thriller Room, which was made into a major motion picture.

A Cup Half Full by Beth Wiseman

Sarah Lantz always dreamed of the perfect home, the perfect husband, the perfect family. When she married Abram, she knew she was on her way to securing her perfect life. All of that changes in one moment when an accident leaves her unable to walk and confined to a wheelchair, dashing all of her dreams. As Abram starts to transform their home, Sarah begins a transformation in her spirit, and she begins, once again, to see her cup as half full.

 

Home Sweet Home by Amy Clipston

Down on their luck and desperate after they are evicted from their small apartment, Chace and Mia O’Connor reluctantly take Chace’s Amish boss up on his offer to rent them the daadi haus located on his property. They are certain they will never feel at home in the rustic cabin without any modern conveniences, and they start to blame each other for their seemingly hopeless situation. But with the help of their new Amish friends, Chace and Mia begin to enjoy their cozy cabin and realize that home really is where the heart is.

 

Building Faith by Kathleen Fuller

Faith Miller knows that carpentry is an unlikely hobby for a young Amish woman, but she loves the work and it keeps the memory of her grandfather alive. So when her cousin asks Faith to build the cabinets in her new home, Faith is only too happy to take on the job, even if it is the most ambitious project she has ever taken on. The only catch is that she has to work with her ex-fiance, Silas. As they work to build Martha’s kitchen, can they put the past behind them and start to build faith in one another again?

 

A Flicker of Hope by Ruth Reid

Fifteen years ago, Thomas and Noreen King were blissful newlyweds. Young, naive, and in love, life was rosy . . . for a while. Then trials and tribulations rocked their foundation, shattering them emotionally, and soon, their marriage was in shards. All hope for restoring their previously unshakable union seems lost. When fire destroys their home, Thomas and Noreen are left to sift through the rubble. As uncovered items from the remains of the house shake loose memories of the past, Thomas and Noreen begin to draw closer and a flicker of hope—and love—is re-ignited.

The Shell Collector’s Daughter

 

I’ve spent the last few weeks writing and editing my newest indie project, The Shell Collector’s Daughter. This book is the newest of my Surf’s Up novellas. It just released on May 5—grab your copy on Amazon!

Much of this novella was written either at a condo on Mustang Island or on a deck in central Texas overlooking a small private lake. I have found there is much truth in this article about “blue space.”

Check out my new Pinterest page created with inspirational scenes for The Shell Collector’s Daughter!

Carianna isn’t like other twenty-six-year-old women. She’s never been on a date, never experienced the euphoria of a first kiss, and certainly never been in love. Can a man’s heart speak to hers in a way that she can understand? And if so, will any man believe that she sings with the angels and has tea with God? Will they see the star dust twinkling in her eyes or hear the secret whispers of the ocean in a sea shell?

Dominic is grieving the death of his mother, so he welcomes a job opportunity that takes him to a beach community near the Texas coast. But what begins as a distraction and change of scenery shifts into a healing journey filled with discovery. Amidst his heartache, Dominic finds love in a beautiful and unexpected way when he meets Carianna—the shell collector’s daughter.

But can Dominic convince Carianna’s father to lift his protective wings and allow Carianna to soar into the life that God meant for her? And will Carianna hear Dominic’s heart speaking to hers in a way that she understands?
