    I have just read an incredible political thriller ebook. I was browsing around at amazon.com and found this ebook called The Cain Sanction, I read the preview and a few chapters. It really was a page turner can’t put it down kind of book.
    I didn’t know how it ends until the last sentence of the last page.. great read!!

    Hi…I agree with Amanda Sessions. I read The Cain Sanction also. Found it on Amazon. I loved it. Very thought provoking. A political thriller by a woman…you go girl! You got to get it. You’ll really enjoy it.

    We read _The Yearling_ this year. I was surprised at how much I liked it. The family dynamic was very interesting: strong father figure, submissive wife, only-child Jody whose journey to maturity defines the story. Another case of don’t judge a book by the movie (and I had enjoyed the movie). Great family read-aloud, provoking many discussions.

    • I read The Yearling many years ago. I’ll have to go back and reread it now as an adult.
      Thanks for the suggestion, Linda!

    How refreshing to see Elizabeth Goudge’s books on your list. She is one of my favorite authors. I also love Green Dolphin Street, Island Magic and Sister of the Angels. Her writing is not only beautifully descriptive, it shows a deep understanding of the faith journey.

    • I just reread one of her children’s books The Little White Horse and told a friend about it. In my opinion, her children’s books rank up there with the Narnia books (and I love those!). Her writing is insightful and beautiful.The Dean’s Watch is my favorite one of her adult books.

      If you ever get a chance, read her autobiography. Her father was a minister/vicar and her mother was an invalid. She grew up in old, drafty parsonages in England before it was changed by the World Wars. Fascinating!
