In truth, I’m unsure of how to write thisContinue reading “Netgalley Review: On Wilder Seas”

Book Review: Hawksmaid

Hello friends, Hawksmaid by Kathryn Lasky is a retelling of Robin Hood and Maid Marion. A children’s fiction story of Maid Marion, this was not at all what I was hoping for it to be, in that while it contained action and plot, it also contained Christianity and praying every few chapters. I liked the writingContinue reading “Book Review: Hawksmaid”

There’s prayingContinue reading “Netgalley Review: For Love and Country”
