A Memorial

In a little town in Florida, a memorial is built to honor the many men and women in the military.

It is a beautiful tribute to the honor and memory of those who have served in American Armed Forces.

Fathers Day

My guy is not big fan of tea. Unless it is cold, sweet and on ice, he always prefers a big mug of coffee. But let's pretend that this would be a hit for all the Fathers.

The handsome pocket watch belonged to my hubby's grandfather.

I hope the Fathers in your life enjoy their special day.

World War II novel

Whose Waves These Are

This novel is based on the lives of twin brothers, Robert and Roy Bliss, during the time period of World War II. One of the brothers is called to war, the other is not, and how the war affected their family. In 2001 Ann Bliss receives word that her "GrandBob" has been injured. She sets out to discover her uncles secret project. 

I found the story to be a bit confusing with the story line jumping from one era to another. Going back and forth between modern-day and the past. I found it difficult to keep track of all the different characters and the plot line as we travel through time. However it was a good clean novel. If anything distracted me, it was too much imagery. I skipped many sections because of a little too much description in every phrase.

I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received from the publisher.

Do not feed the alligators.

Kind of gives you a sense of peace and well being knowing that the State Alligator Control people are out there on patrol :-)

Have a great day!

On the porch

Patriotic holidays are normally the time when we enjoy picnics, bar-b-ques, football games and other crowd pleasing outdoor events.

But sometimes......... it is a time of quiet and reflection. Yesterday was Memorial Day in the US. Although we enjoy a family get together, we also enjoy the time we can share at home.

It's time to fire up the grill

and enjoy a peaceful dinner on the porch.

In Memory

As water reflects a face,
so a man's heart reflects the man.

On a Summer Tide

On a Summer Tide

On a Summer Tide is the first book in the Three Sisters Island series. It is the first book I read written by Suzanne Woods Fisher.

On a small island on the coast of Maine, Paul Grayson buys a camp called Camp Kicking Moose. A place where he spent summers as a teen, and had met his wife. His three adult daughters, Cam, Maddie and Baine, are shocked at this drastic move. Having all drifted apart since their mom died, Paul feels this move will draw them together as a family once again. When they arrive on the island, they discover the camp has been neglected for years, as was the main house. Little by little, they pull together to restore the camp and house. And in the process find the island's charm captures their hearts.

The three daughters each have very different personalities and goals. It seems that God has brought them together to restore not only the camp, but the unity of their family. Each daughter is faced with finding their faith and forgiving past hurts along the way.
