Overdue Christmas Pics



Our Church had a Christmas Float in the parade again.


This time I was Mary and my hubby was Joseph.  Hunter was an angel and Mitchell was a king.


Our family had a good Christmas.



We celebrated with just us, with my side of the family, with my hubby's family, and with friends.  So we had lots of fun and fellowship!


That's Ronnie's sister in this picture with me and Mitchell.  We hadn't seen her in years!  It's been great getting to be around her again.


Those are my nephews in the picture above along with my sons, Mitchell and Hunter (on the right).  We're missing my nephew Jason who's up in Heaven.

I hope everyone had a great Christmas also!

Elusive Hope- Book Review



Elusive Hope is the second book in MaryLu Tyndall's Escape to Paradise series.  This book is a continuation of the first in the series where colonists left the south after the Civil War in order to find a new utopia in South America.  It focuses on the story of Magnolia Scott and Hayden Gale.

If you read book one, you'll know that these two characters aren't the most lovable.  They both have many flaws, as do every one of us.  Our heroine, Magnolia was forced by her father to leave the south and is desperate to get back to everything she loved in the states including her fiance.  Hayden came to Brazil in order to find his father and punish him for what happened to his mother.

While in South America Magnolia hears of a ship heading back to the states and attaches herself to Hayden in order to try and get to it.  Hayden has his own reasons for letting Magnolia tag along and they aren't so noble.  Their journey through the dark and mysterious jungle is filled with beauty, suspense, and even spiritual warfare!

MaryLu really brings the story to life with vivid descriptions of the characters and the lush vegetation in the jungle.  She makes it hard for you to put down Elusive Hope.  Luckily there will be another book in this series very shortly!

I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
