Book Review, “Peace in the Valley,” Ruth Logan Herne author

peace in the valley cover

Peace in the Valley, by Ruth Logan Herne, is the third book in the Double S Ranch series.  This book illustrates what can happen to people when they follow God’s plan rather than their own. It completes the story of the Stafford family.

Trey Walker Stafford returns home to central Washington to give part of his liver to his uncle/father, Sam Stafford, the man who rescued him after his parents’ death and took him in as his own son. When Sam asks Trey to help him repay Lucy Carlton’s family for his past uncaring behavior by restoring her crumbling farm, Trey is happy to help.  But as Lucy and Trey work together and grow closer, he discovers Lucy’s past and is reminded of his late wife’s mistakes. He must decide if he can put the past aside and move on to share a life with Lucy and her children. His country singer superstar status only complicates the matter, leaving Lucy to guard her heart and expect disappointment.

I enjoyed this book. It was a fitting conclusion to this beautiful story of forgiveness and restitution. I found Lucy a very down to earth person, easy to relate to in real life. I especially liked Isabo, who seemed to lovingly take control when others needed her.

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Christian fiction.

Book Review, “The One Year Book of Healing,” Dr. Reggie Anderson and Jennifer Schuchmann authors

the-one-year-book-of-healing-cover

The One Year Book of Healing: Daily Appointments with God for Physical, Spiritual, and Emotional Wholeness, by Dr. Reggie Anderson with Jennifer Schuchmann, is designed to “encourage you to pursue a closer relationship with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ” through the “many ways that he intervenes in the lives of the sick and the hurting.”

This book is divided into twelve months. There is a devotion for each day of the month.  To begin each month, there is a check-up, or an explanation of what the reader can expect during that time period. This also includes a “Booster Shot” intended to encourage better health. Each devotion includes a Bible verse or passage, a short devotion, “Today’s RX,” a suggestion to aid in better health, and a short prayer. The author lists seven “common truths” to impart to readers: God is the one who heals. Sometimes emotional healing must come first. Healing comes in many forms. Our hope for healing is only in Jesus Christ. Prayer is an important part of the healing process. Healthy living leads to healthy lives, and sometimes we must overcome obstacles to healing. The book ends with a Scripture Index listing each verse used and the day in which it was used.

This is a wonderful book.  It would be a terrific gift for someone healing from almost any type of pain.  I would recommend this book to anyone searching for a way to heal.
