One of my great treats is finding a new author whose work I enjoy. I'm happy to say I added Cynthia Ruchti to the list of writers I want to keep reading. Thanks to my friends at Abingdon Press and Litfuse Publicity Group I have some happy reading coming up this summer. I will definitely be adding at least one more of her books to my list of books that I've read and I am sure I will enjoy it, too.
I love my mysteries, but I also like a good, solid novel with engaging characters. I found it in "All My Belongings." I was completely engaged on a number of subway rides and ran the great subway reader risk of missing my stop. This is the story of Jayne Dennegee who leaves a painful family situation, the town she grew up in and even her name to look for new horizons in California as Becca Morrow. There is a good story, romance, and there is some mystery, too. There is also a strong faith component and it winds through the plot and the characters without being overdone.
This is a difficult book to write about because I don't want to spoil any of the turns in the plot. But it kept me reading and I am happy I have another book by Cynthia Ruchti right behind this one.
Whether you're reading this summer, with a tall glass of iced tea at your side or next winter with a cup of cocoa, "All My Belongings" is a very enjoyable book.
I'm not sure where the weekend or the weekdays go. My projects seem to have taken on a life of their own and even with a new to-do list every morning I'm not getting all the things I hope to do accomplished. I did start yesterday morning at my neurosurgeon for a two-year checkup. For newer readers I had a spinal cord tumor removed in June 2012. This was my first visit back to my surgeon since my follow-up ten days after surgery. The appointment went well and I will have my next follow-up MRI in June 2015. Hurray! I feel very fortunate and I am so thankful.
Please stop by and visit tomorrow. I will have a very quick BookExpo America tote bag giveaway.
As always thanks for visiting. Take good care and happy reading.
Please note: I was given a copy of "All My Belongings" for review purposes, but the opinions I've shared here are all mine.
