Have you ever been to a “family reunion?” I remember my last one and the planning to get to the location, each sister driving along with their spouses, getting to the hotel, finally arriving at the site, the weather, the games, the visiting of those whom did show up, the wonderful food and ice cream, learning the family history or memories by elder relatives. With that said, Jane Riddell brings together her family to the family hotel in Switzerland. Magdalena is the Mother and main character whom wants to retire and announce to her family of four (Annie, Vienne, Portia and Lawrence) that she wants to give the 40 year old lakeside hotel to one of them and marry her friend Karl. What is amazing is that she loses her husband and wants to remarry so quickly as well as announce it to the children on the day of the family reunion. The reality of all of the emotional ups and downs of relationships and family secrets fits like a glove all the readers who stop to read this book. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants a fast read and to see how the ending turns out. As the pages turn so will your emotions and the “I have been there and done that scenario.” Hit Like and feel free to comment below.
Kate’s Journey Triumph over adversity by Kate Adamson
This is a book I bought and read back in 2002. It is a true story of a women (33) who endured a stroke went from paralysis to recovery and her journey through it all and not losing her faith. I have to say that I have added this book to my favorites list and she is a true hero and miracle of God. Yes, it’s 2014 and I realize now she has a new book in 2012 that I am definitely going to buy. I highly recommend this book for health professionals and students who want to understand what the patient with a severe neurological injury actually goes through. Kate recovers from a stroke! This book allowed me to appreciate those who have suffered from a stroke or other ailments and their long term recovery efforts. This story will encourage you and give you hope in any adversity and realize faith and courage and strength will keep you going as it did for Kate’s journey to recovery. You will love the resources in the back of the book too.

My Time in Heaven by Richard Sigmund
I was shopping at a local Walgreens a while ago and picked up this wonderful spiritual book. I just got done reading it now and boy was it a page turner! A book that took me a few hours. It’s a true story about a man whom was in a van accident and died for eight hours and as he is wheeled to the morgue he sits up and says, “I’m Alive.” He freaked everyone out! Yes, a miracle from God, to bring this man to life again to be able to share his real life experience with all of us. The details are so real, they match what the bible say with scriptures. After reading this book I will pass it along to anyone I know and especially those who need a personal relationship with our Lord and Savior. If you like this review, hit LIKE!
