A Most Peculiar Circumstance

About The Book:

Miss Arabella Beckett has one driving passion: to help the downtrodden women of America. Naturally, she supports the women's suffrage movement and eagerly attends rallies and lectures across the country. On her travels, she makes a simple offer of assistance to a young woman in need that goes sadly awry and lands both ladies in more trouble than they can manage. An independent sort, Arabella is loath to admit she needs help and certainly doesn't need help from an arrogant, narrow-minded knight in shining armor.

Mr. Theodore Wilder, private investigator extraordinaire, is on a mission. A mission that began as a favor to his good friend Hamilton Beckett, but swiftly evolved into a merry chase across the country. By the time he finally tracks down Hamilton's sister, Arabella, he is in a less than pleasant mood. When the lady turns out to have radical ideas and a fiercely independent streak, he soon finds himself at his wit's end.

When they return home to New York, circumstances force their paths to continue to cross, but the most peculiar feelings growing between them certainly can't be love. When the trouble Arabella had accidentally stirred up seems to have followed her to New York and threatens her very life, the unlikely couple must face the possibility that they might have landed in the most peculiar circumstance of all: love.

What I Liked . . .

EVERYTHING!!!! This book had me rolling with laughter from the beginning when Arabella gets muddied by the pig, gets arrested, and Theodore the investigator shows up to retrieve her. He's not in a good mood and the last thing he wants to hear is a "story," well too bad for him because she has one and the banter back and forth keeps you laughing. 

The baiting between the two of them in the jail is just hilarious and you know something is brewing between them. 

What I Didn't Like . . . 

I can't think of anything I didn't like in this book.

Praying God's Word For My Life


You pray for others-but are you forgetting to pray for yourself?
Many of us find it easy to pray for the concerns and well-being of others. But when it comes to praying for ourselves, we may wonder, Should I pray for my own needs? Are any prayers too big or too small? Are my prayers selfish? Does praying really make a difference?

In her warm, approachable style, Kathi Lipp shares more than one hundred specific prayers for our lives, relationships, worries, mistakes, faith, and more. The simple strategies Kathi reveals will help each of us create a habit of praying with renewed boldness, consistency, and expectation.

"Kathi Lipp takes us on a life-changing journey to pray God's Word over our lives. I love her practical steps and insights on how to make this a part of our daily routine. Highly recommended."-Linda Evans Shepherd, bestselling author of When You Don't Know What to Pray.

My Thoughts:

Back in the early to late 90's I had a similar book and I used it religiously. I found this book to be very easy to read, and Kathi's steps were easy to incorporate into my daily prayer time.
As women we have a hard time doing anything for ourselves and that even includes praying for ourselves. In Kathi's easy style she brings power and purpose to praying for our own needs.
