I have been given the opportunity to do some reviews on some books from a few different publishers. Some of them do not quite fit into the focus I have for Living Infuzion, but obviously have some good information. Here are some of my perspectives on some pretty good books! Enjoy!

Love`s Reckoning - Laura Frantz

"On a bitter December day in 1784, Silas Ballantyne arrives at the door of blacksmith Liege Lee in York County, Pennsylvania. Silas is determined to finish his apprenticeship quickly and move west. But because he is a fast worker and a superb craftsman, Liege endeavors to keep him in York by appealing to an old tradition: the apprentice shall marry one of his master's beautiful daughters.
Eden is as gentle and fresh as Elspeth is high-spirited and cunning. But are they truly who they appear to be? In a house laced with secrets, each sister seeks to secure her future. Which one will claim Silas's heart--and will he agree to Liege's arrangement? In this sweeping family saga, one man's choices in love and work, in friends and enemies, set the stage for generations to come. This is the Ballantyne Legacy."

This book was such a great read.  It was very hard for me to put it down.  Eden is such a wonderful women who longs to do the things that God calls her.  She is so caring and selfless that she is often taken advantage of by some pretty cruel people in her life.  Her father and her sister.  I have never really despised people in novels, but I found myself at points becoming very angry with both of these characters. Especially the selfish, manipulative sister, Elspeth.  Silas is such an honorable man and a perfect match for Eden.  Together, with God, they work to overcome the struggles in there lives.  There is also an excerpt from the next novel in the series, and I cannot wait to see where it goes.
