Two Amish Fiction Audiobooks: The Roll of the Drums, Softly Blows the Bugle by Jan Drexler #AudiobookReview

Last year a friend of mine gave me a copy of The Sound of Distant Thunder, the first book in this series. I really enjoyed it and wanted to continue with this series. When the audiobooks of the next two in the series were made available to me, I jumped at the chance to continue with this series and am glad that I did. This series is set in Ohio during and just after the Civil War. Amish people are pacifists and do not believe in war, but when they are conscripted/drafted they have to find a way to reconcile their religion with this legal responsibility. You do not necessarily need to read this series in order, but for complete enjoyment and no spoilers, I do recommend it.

3 Christian Fiction Reviews: A Wells Landing Christmas, Smoke Screen, Amish Outsider #BookReview #AudiobookReview

I read quite a bit of Amish Fiction and found these two books especially well done. The other is a faith based romantic suspense. One of the things I like is the emphasis on family. Two of these books were audiobooks and one an ebook. All were very enjoyable. Scroll down for my reviews.

Family and Youth Christmas Presentation

Each year, our Sunday School and Youth Group put on a Christmas Presentation. We take over one church service and present various takes and interpretations on the Christmas Story. Well, this year was a challenge. With social distancing, we could not get together and plan anything. Thanks to our Minister, Reverend Lisa who wrote our script, we were still able to share a family presentation. My family are the shepherds and angels and I was the reporter in the background. Take a few moment to watch if it interests you.

Morning Star by Charlotte Hubbard, Mending Fences by Suzanne Woods Fisher #AudiobookReviews #AmishFiction

I do enjoy Amish Fiction and these two recent ones that I enjoyed were both audiobooks. I want to thank Tantor Audio for this gifted copy of Morning Star, it has hooked me on this series. Mending Fences was from my local library, but also the first in a series that I will also continue reading/listening to.

Amish Greenhouse Mystery Series, The Crow’s Call & The Mockingbird’s Song, Mini #BookReviews

Amish Greenhouse Mystery Series is a different type of story by Wanda E. Brunstetter. If you enjoy her Amish stories, you will not be disappointed with this series. The faith based stories you expect are still here, with a hint of a mystery (not murder though). There are some familiar characters from her Prayer Jar series, and a great setting. Both of these books were provided by the publisher through Netgalley at my request, but I also listened to parts of the stories through audiobooks I downloaded from my library though Hoopla. Both books were narrated by Rebecca Gallagher. I have listened to other books she has narrated and liked her performance. She has a pleasant voice, and uses her expression and intonation to add interest to the audio. All ratings and opinions are my own.
