Cover ArtA bride for Donnigan
by Oke, Janette, 1935-
I really enjoyed reading this book. It is a story about a girl from Ireland who becomes a mail order bride for a man named Donnigan. They don't get along at first, but they soon learn how to accept each other for the way they are. I highly suggest that you should read this book [Series: Women of the West]   posted Aug 10, 2004

Cover ArtSpy for the night riders
by Jackson, Dave
This book is about Martin Luther. It os the story of Luther's later life. Fictional characters have been added to make the story more interesting. The story is about how Martin Luther defends his belief in the Bible. He disagrees with a man named John Eck. Eck forces Luther to appear before the royal court in Rome. Luther experiences many different things on his trip to Rome. Such as: a kidnap, runaway ferry boat,and very angry mobs. At the close of the book, Luther writes a very weel-known hynm: A Mighty Fortress is our God. [Series: Trailblazer Books]   posted Jun 19, 2004

Cover ArtThe magician's nephew
by Lewis, C. S. 1898-1963
This book is the first book in the "Chronicles of Narnia" series. It explains the origin of Narnia and it makes you want to read the second book, The Lion,the witch, and the Wardrobe. I highly recomend reading this book and the whole series. [Series: Chronicles of Narnia]   posted Jun 19, 2004

Cover ArtThe silver chair
by Lewis, C. S. 1898-1963
The Silver Chair is the sixth book in the Chronicles of Narnia series. Eustace and Jill are magically summend to Narnia. Their job is to find the lost Prince Rilian. Aslan speaks to Jill and tells her to look for signs that will lead her to the prince. She dilligently recites them for awhile, and then she stops repeating them and forgets them. Then when Jill and Eustace end up in an underground world Jill wishes she would have worked harder at remebering the signs. I highly suggest reading this book and for that matter, the whole series!!

Cover ArtA child called "it" : an abused child's journey from victim to victor
by Pelzer, David J.
This sad book is a true story based on Dave Pelzer's childhood. A young child's will to live is very inspiring but distressing that someone could do that to a child. I reccommend it but for people who can handle the pain a child went through.   posted Apr 9, 2004
