~The Sister Wife Reviewed~

Friday, July 16, 2010

This was the first book of Diane's I have read and I was very impressed with it. She really made you care about the characters and the struggle they were going through. She was also not afraid to show the lie of the Mormon religion against the truth of God and Jesus Christ. What is so sad for me is that people will just allow themselves to be so deceived by things that are black and white and common sense. God has placed within us a vacuum that is just for Him and no one else and once we have accepted Him when something that is not of Him comes along His spirit lets us know and that is what happens to Mary Rose in this book. She knows that this "new" religion that her grandfather has become apart of is not right yet she becomes apart of it because she falls in love with Gabe. And a deeper struggle soon begins. Jesus warns us of wolves in sheeps clothing, and tells us to test the spirits to know if they are of Him or not, and if they are not of Him we are to flee. I highly recommend this book, and I can't wait to read the next one!

With more than a quarter million books in print, Diane feels incredibly blessed to be doing what she loves best—writing the stories of her heart.

As a child, Diane’s older brother Dennis fueled her creative streak by entertaining her with his own gift of storytelling. Growing up without TV and iffy radio reception, Diane became an avid reader, inhaling more than one hundred novels—both YA and adult—in a single

year by the time she reached seventh grade. Her passion for reading continues to this day.



Now empty nesters, Diane and her husband live in the Southern California low desert, near a place known for the lush and beautiful gated communities of the rich and famous.





ABOUT THE BOOK



What if the man you loved told you God wanted him to take another wife? What if that woman was your best friend?



Set in the heart of the earliest days of a new nineteenth-century sect known as the Saints, The Sister Wife is a riveting account of two women forced into a practice they don't understand, bound by their devotion to Prophet Joseph Smith.



When Mary Rose marries Gabriel, neither of them could foresee how quickly the community would turn to the practice of plural marriage. Devastated when Gabe is faced with an order from the Prophet to marry her best friend, Bronwyn, Mary Rose tries to have the faith to carry through with the marriage.



But can she really be married to the same man as her very best friend? Can Mary Rose and Bronwyn face betraying both their husband and their God to do what they feel is right?

~Review Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake~

This was a real different book for me. I have since grown out of fairy tale type books and yet this was way beyond that kind of book. It was very real and emotional. I enjoyed it on a different level. I didn't find it depressing like I thought I would, I found it rather enlightening and thought that it really opened up a new way of thinking about how we really care for each other. I highly recommend this book.

WIN RULES OF BETRAYAL




The most riveting novel yet in Christopher Reich’s New York Times bestselling series just went on sale—featuring Dr. Jonathan Ransom and his undercover-agent wife Emma, a dangerous woman with a mysterious past who has gone rogue in the high-stakes, serpentine world of international spies.

In 1980, a secret American B-52 crashes high in a remote mountain range on the Pakistan–Afghanistan border. Nearly thirty years later, and spanning locales from those peaks to New York City, a terrible truth will be revealed.

Jonathan Ransom returns as the resourceful doctor thrown into a shadowy world of double and triple agents where absolutely no one can be trusted. To stay alive, Ransom must unravel the mystery surrounding his wife—an enigmatic and lethal spy who plays by her own rules—and discover where her loyalties truly lie.

Rules of Betrayal is a masterfully plotted novel that cements Christopher Reich’s reputation as one of the most admired espionage thriller writers today.
