Betrayal by Robin Lee Hatcher


I'm giving away a copy of this book and the first book, Belonging, in the Where the Heart Lives series to one lucky reader! Leave a comment if you are interested, I'll pick a winner on January 7th.

Betrayal is the second book in Robin Lee Hatcher's Where the Heart Lives series. The story is set in the western United States during the turn of the century. A lone wanderer finds himself on the ranch of a young widow. Not knowing why, he asks her for help and she agrees to give it to him. The two of them are both Christians, but have the shared experience of developing their faith in a very private way, he because he had no one to share it with while on a journey to find his sisters and she because of being in an abusive relationship with her husband for many years.
The two of them learn to express their faith together and become much more than land owner and cow hand. Through the story, they begin to care for one another and fall in love.
The story is an enjoyable read with many reminders that God has better plans than we do. And that sometimes, we have to give up things that we hold dear, in order to gain something that is even better.
If you want to take a little journey into the days of the pioneers and cow ranchers, this will be a nice adventure.

Copies of this book were given to me by Zondervan for the purpose of review as well as an additional copy to share. I'm never obligated to say nice things about the books that I read.

Stories from the Kitchen: Taste and See

I celebrated my birthday last weekend. It was wonderful and the leftovers left me with a question or two. Find out what they are and how I'm currently answering them in this week's podcast.

Project 52: Shiver me dufuses

This date I pulled out a puzzle that I had bought for Joel years ago.  I put up a little camp table , and even devised a system to keep the pieces in place with some fabric, so we could roll it up and stow it.  I was all ready to go and then the reality of the puzzle set in and I realised, I don't like puzzles.  I was already frustrated and worn out by the darn thing and we were only a mere few minutes into working on it!  Instead of getting upset, we changed plans. The puzzle was abandoned and Joel went out for a shamrock shake from McD's and two cherry pies.  We played some MadLibs .  The one we bought for Hannah today was Pirate themed and the story that was the funniest included a peg elbow and a pet pencil sitting on your shoulder saying "Shiver me dufuses!" We even had a joke book that we'd picked up for Hannah and read a couple of terrible jokes to one another while shuffling cards for cribbage. A fun night full of laughter and green shakes.  Well, I&#

KAF No-Fuss Focaccia

I really like making bread.  It's fun to get your hands dirty, but I understand that yeast is a scary thing for people who don't have experience with it.  Somehow, I started using it when I was young and too immature to understand the fear that comes along with wasting time, money and energy.  I had time and energy in abundance.  My first real forte into baking was in the 7 th grade.  I must have cooked before then because I choose to see which flour rose the highest using a cinnamon roll recipe.  I made a lot of cinnamon rolls that year and when I turned in my report, there were questions asked of me that I had no idea what she meant.  Questions about the weather and the heat of the oven.  Things that I didn't know could make a difference in the baking of bread.  Lots has happened since that first memorable baking.  Today, I invited a friend over to make bread.  I was kind of concerned about the strength of the yeast, because we bought a huge stash of it last year someti
