This week, the

is introducing

The Midwife’s Tale

Bethany House Publishers (June 2, 2015)



Delia Parr is the author of sixteen historical and inspirational historical romance novels, including Hearts Awakening, Love’s First Bloom, and Hidden Affections. The mother of three grown children, she was a long-time high school teacher in southern New Jersey before retiring to Florida.


Martha Cade comes from a long line of midwives who have served the families of Trinity, Pennsylvania, for generations. A widow with two grown children, she’s hopeful that her daughter will follow in her footsteps, but when Victoria runs off, Martha’s world is shattered.

Worse, a new doctor has arrived in town, threatening her job, and she can’t remember a time when her faith has been tested more. Still determined to do the work she knows God intended for her, Martha is unprepared for all that waits ahead. Whether it’s trying to stop a town scandal, mending broken relationships, or feeling the first whispers of an unexpected romance, she faces every trial and every opportunity with hope and faith.

Love this heartwarming book. This is my first book of Ms. Parr, and I am excited to look forward to book two in this series. Love the characters in The Midwife’s Tale, and the historical setting was so interesting. If you enjoy historical fiction, try this one! You will be happy you did!

Twenty Dinners by Ithai Schori and Chris Taylor

Twenty Dinners

by Ithai Schori and Chris Taylor

twenty dinners

Twenty Dinners is a different kind of cookbook than any I have seen. Each group of recipes are centered around an entire meal, even the drinks. Ithai Schori and Chris Taylor  take their cooking skills and their loads of experience and put them between the pages of this beautiful hardcover book. They make it easy because there is virtually no meal planning. Its all there for you. I don’t know that I would do the exact meal, but then I might. But it would be easy to substitute things that you don’t have or things your family doesn’t care for. The book is beautiful inside and out. This would be perfect to display in your kitchen, even when you are not using the recipes. But I will say, the recipes in here sound delicious! And I am excited about trying some of the different things here. And oh, if you are a cookbook collector, or if you just like to sit and look at cookbooks, then you need to add this to your collection, because it is different and unique!
