What I'm Reading Now

Deep Shadows & Raging Storm
by Vannetta Chapman
Deep Shadows, Book One, and Raging Storm, Book Two in the Remnant Series, tell the story of the drastic changes everyone must make when a solar flare takes out all modern technology around the world. Book focuses on the residents of a small community in Texas who must now find a way to survive an eerily plausible world thrown into chaos. Book two follows book one as though a next chapter. Anxiously awaiting book three. Although my rating scale is 1 - 4. This series deserves a 5.

Of Stillness and Storm
by Michele Phoenix
Sam is certain God has called him as a missionary to the primitive tribes in remote regions of Nepal. Wife Lauren is not certain it is God's calling, but Sam's desires. Caught in the middle is 13 year old Ryan. Story of misunderstanding about God's calling, submission, and a missionary's kid falling between the cracks. I was angry with Sam's selfishness, so didn't enjoy the story as much as the worthiness it holds. Rating of 3

The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane
by Lisa See
Great story of the people and tea of the Chinese mountains. Lots of history about both. Sometimes a bit frustrating trying to understand the tribal customs. Worth the read. Rating of 3.5

Movie - The Shack
While I don't usually rate movies (I don't watch too many) thought I would give a two thumbs up on this one. If you liked the book, you'll enjoy the movie. Highly recommend watching, even if you haven't read the book. Rating of 4
