For Every Season: a Book Review

For Every Season
I was so excited to have a chance to review For Every Season by Cindy Woodsmall. A while back I did a review for the first book in this series, A Season For Tending. I had such a hard time getting into the first one. About three-quarters of the way through I was finally hooked. I got the second book at the library and loved it. When I had the chance to review the next book, I knew I had to take it.

The Amish Vines and Orchards series has been great. There are so many characters to follow, but my mind was always focused on the story of Samuel, Jacob, and Rhoda. Through out the whole book I have been rooting for Rhoda and hoping that Cindy wouldn't have her stay with who I felt was the wrong brother. Without ruining the ending, I was very happy with how she rounded out this book. Things simmer down to the point where more could be fun but I am satisfied with the ending for Rhoda...then I kept turning through the apple recipes and found the ad for book 4! I don't know how I am going to wait till April to read more, but I guess I will have to.

I read this on my Kindle and I was very pleased with it. Last time there were some issues with the formatting. This third book had very good formatting. All the pretty frills are gone, but they are also not messing up the layout of the page and that makes for much easier reading.

I received a free copy of this book from Waterbrook Multnomah Publishing to review.

Learning the Uke

The Cat Returns is one of my favorite animated films. The end song, Kaze Ni Naru, is one of my favorite parts and gave me the longing to play the ukulele. I found just the uke for me here in Montreal. It is part musical instrument and part souvenir of Quebec. I am not terribly good at it yet, but I am starting to get this song down. Once I have it figured out, I will either attempt to learn the words so I can sing along, or move on to another great song. In the meantime, here is a great cover of the song by someone who has been playing a lot longer than I have.

Indescribable

Have you seen this video by Louie Giglio yet? It is really amazing to see how the universe proclaims God's glory. Take some time to watch it. God really is indescribable.

Cats in Paris: a Book Review

In Montreal adult coloring books are everywhere. When we came back to the states a couple of months ago I found they were popular here too. I really enjoy them and am very particular about what I pick. I like a lot of fine details mixed with whimsy.

Cats in Paris by Won-Sun Jang is simply beautiful. It begins with a sort of tour of Paris, with cats of course. There is a bit of narrative in this portion as well. The art is beautiful but not quite the page covering design work I personally love. The rest of the book makes up for it though. There are patterns and intri'cat' designs. The artwork throughout is beautifully done and a joy to fill in. I am so happy to be able to while away my quiet moments with this book.
