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.

Tasty Tuesday: Roasted Broccoli

I ran across this recipe on Pinterest the other day that was labeled " The Best Broccoli Of Your Life. " I normally either steam our broccoli in the microwave or saute it with olive oil and red pepper flakes on the stove top. I decided this would be something to try. I did the salt, pepper and olive oil part of the recipe. I didn't have the majority of the other ingredients. In fact, all I had was a little bit of Parmesan  It was wonderful. Not the best broccoli of my life, but honestly, it was pretty close. And if I had the lemon juice and all that jazz, it may very well be the best. What have you been eating lately?

Together is a Beautiful Place by Bailey T. Hurley

  Have you ever wanted to be a better friend or been stumped by how to make your friendships more meaningful? If so, you might want to pick up a copy of Together is a Beautiful Place. Hurley does an excellent job of sharing ways to connect with people that you know and how to easily take your relationships from surface level to deep and meaningful parts of your life. One of my favorite parts of the book is when Hurley incorporates surveys and other data to give insight into relationship building. She shares that it takes 90 hours of social interaction to consider someone a friend. When you’re only seeing each other in passing, it will take much longer than when you carve out time to specifically be with people.  Overall, Together is a Beautiful Place is an encouraging and helpful read. Exactly what I needed as I continue to make friends in life.  I received a copy of this book through NetGalley for the purpose of review. I’m never required to say nice things about books but I’m always
