Review of the book The Plain Choice by Sherry Gore

This book is about a woman who decides to leave the world and become Amish with her children. It all started because she attended an Amish church and loved everything about it. Such as how the preacher found the best in her and helped her pray and repent. Everyone treated her kindly and she liked how the Amish community is simple and all about the bible. How they use horse and buggy instead of car, how they live with little to no electricity and wear plain clothes and a head covering. The ending was a little sad, I won't say what happens but I feel and for the family and what they are going through and it makes me sad. Before this woman became Amish she had lived a troubling life and was trying to better herself and find GOD and Jesus. Not all Amish are the same, some use cars, some use computers,etc so its all up to you and what you find comfortable in your life. I was excited to review this book because I like reading about Amish and their culture and enjoy watching Amish shows on tv as well. I find other religions fascinating even though my religion is Jehovah's witness, I still like to read up on other cultures/religions. My other family is Catholic and so we but heads sometimes but its okay because we are all family and enjoy each other and are respectful to each other because we love each other.

Review of the book The Bones Will Speak by Carrie Stuart Parks

I was excited to read this book from the very beginning. I anxiously waited to review this book, the minute it came out, I rushed to get it. This book is about a sketch artist named Gwen who has a daughter named Aynslee. Gwen ends up in trouble after she enters this case to find a serial killer who are killing women in the area. He is leaving clues that the cops are trying to figure out such as a pattern of where the victims are found, the fact that wolves are eating them after the victims are dead and how they are always near lilac bushes leaving a smell of lilac around the bodies. And then the serial killer turns to Aynslee and her daughter. Its not who you think it is. And its all because of how the person was mad at Gwen for her helping in a case a few years back. I also liked the discussion questions at the end of the book as well to make you think more about the plot/story. The question askes revenge is the opposite of forgiveness. Who else is seeking revenge. And the answer is the killer is seeking revenge for something that happened years ago. Another question is about Aynslee and asks Aynslee is self-centered at the start of the story. Does she change? What makes her change? The answer is yes she changes because she gets involved in the case and ends up helping other people making her not self-centered.
