A Silken Thread by Kim Vogel Sawyer

I received an unedited proof edition of this book through NetGalley because I asked to read and review it. This is my unbiased review.

I liked this book, it is a historical Christian fiction book. Even though it was not a final copy, the editing was very well done. I cannot remember an error at all.

The characters were well defined and realistic. The plot flowed well. It was well written, but for me, it was not an "I cannot put this down" type of book. It did not keep me glued to the pages and I would not likely re-read this book.

The plot revolves around the south just after the Civil war. It shows, probably in a kinder way, the feelings of the whites against the blacks. It also deals with the basic honest or dishonesty as the case was of people in general. It showed how a Christian should act and did bring in God but it was not preachy at all.

I have read and enjoyed other books by Kim Vogel Sawyer, but this doesn't live up to the others. I think if you want a light read, you will enjoy the book. I rated it 4 stars out of 5.

The Making of Mrs. Hale by Carolyn Miller

This is a Regency romance type of book. It is a Christian book but not at all preachy. You can see God's hand throughout the book, though. The story has a bit of a twist from other novels of this type. I will not give it away, but I found it quite interesting. It switched back and forth between the two main characters but in a smooth fashion.

The story flowed well. The characters were quite well developed, at least the main characters and the mother. The editing was also done well.

I asked to read and review this book through Netgalley..com. Yes, I was given an ebook with no charge. No, I was not required to leave a review. I do recommend you read this book, I'm sure you will enjoy it.
