Made Me a Believer | Posted August-26-2009
This is the book that made me believe that modern Christian writers can make it to the science fiction world of literature. Perhaps Frank Peretti has been saying it for years. But he says it better everytime.

He sure did scare me with this book, and for days I had dreamed of falling into a ditch with the black mud that smelled like a dead rat (euuwww!), and attracted a creature I could not see and would not let me rest. Made me think of the way we deal with our sins, and how the simple message of godliness is indeed taking God seriously and especially what He thinks of our sin in the same manner. And of course, that we can find rest and need not run away from a hungry dragon, and how the gift of His son broke the oath that bound us to the curse of the wages of our sins.

Without Cover | Posted August-26-2009
I read this book when I was thirteen, the stage in a teenager when everything about looks is top priority, and the concept of self-esteem seem to be measured by one's civil status.

At the stage what was hard for me to accept was how I fell short of the world's standards of aesthetics. Although most girls and women do not admit that being beautiful is important to them, imagine meeting a girl named Berta who grew up never admitting it and yet living in the shadow of a fear that she may never really be who Glenna is.

Two sisters who are eternally apart, when it comes down to what they look like, and along the way, who they are because of their choices. This is one good book for discussion about what true beauty is and what really counts the most. It's every women's story, in a way that Janette Oke reminds us that what we often see in the mirror is not really what people only see, and most of all what God really sees. It's a story of redemption and the beauty that we can unmask and see how it is not skin deep, no matter if we 'feel' like Sparrows more than Bluebirds.

Climbing Up the Valley | Posted August-26-2009
Her voice has never failed to inspire every generation, with her lovable as well as unlovable characters, speaking to those who share the same spirit with hers, or for every girl (and boy too) that grew up with tales from Avonlea and Prince Edward Island.

Here comes another story about an orphan, and her dreams, and how she meets the people of New Moon.
Montgomery introduces us to Emily, who I can say does not have the charm of Anne that made us love her, but whose persistence, courage and imagination takes us hand in hand from our own self-doubts and to the place to where we also had to choose who we wanted to be. Emily's dreams and how she had to prove that she had the right to pursue it is inspiring, in a way that we wish for her to achieve it with the least sacrifice. We long to stay on the path with Emily, as this story closes with her dream to climb up the valley's side and perhaps find favor in the sight of the gods, that may lend her the glory of becoming a poetess.

It is great to have a character to root for and to cheer on..along with her friends. At times we see reflections of ourselves in Montgomery's characters, and that is what makes her books even more charming.

He's Back! | Posted June-30-2009
I love this book.. talk about the gap in evolution. Amazing storyline, Frank is back, like his style which leaves us at the edge of our seats.. like his book "The Oath" and "Piercing the Darkness."
