Promise to ReturnPromise to Return by Elizabeth Byler Younts
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

It's not often that a book keeps me up late at night - but this one did! I couldn't put it down last night until I physically couldn't keep my eyes open. And after my chores were done this morning, I was right back into it and read until the end.

Elizabeth Byler Younts takes us back to WWII and an Amish community whose young men were drafted. They could honorably serve out their time at a CPS (Civilian Public Service) camp but Henry Mast couldn't. He felt God leading him to enlist.

Miriam Coblentz wanted nothing more than to marry Henry and live happily in their community. She couldn't understand the changes in him after being at the CPS camp. She tries to please everyone, but can she really please anyone?

Beautifully laid out, this novel will pull you through an emotional journey of love, loyalty, and faith. I highly recommend it!

A Little Bit of Charm (The New Beginnings, #3)A Little Bit of Charm by Mary  Ellis

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Rachel King loves working with horses, but not like most Amish girls do.  She wants to ride thoroughbreds.  Riding in an Amish dress isn't exactly practical.  When Rachel takes a job at a thoroughbred horse farm, she doesn't expect to fall for the horseman as well as the horses.

An avid horse racing fan, I cringed at the repeated mention of yearling races.  Yearlings don't race.  Horses are started racing as 2-year-olds.  But it doesn't bother the story or the romance between Rachel and Jake.

The faith thread in this story is believable and interesting.  Choices - both Amish and English - can change a person, for either good or bad.  Realizing the choices for what they are takes discernment and often time. 

A gentle romance suitable for any age.  I highly recommend this one.

I am blessed - incredibly blessed - to be part of an awesome group of writers known as the Quid Pro Quills.  We started as a spin-off from the American Christian Fiction Writer's Scribes group.  We've grown into an active, supportive, accountability, critique group.  And along the way, we've become friends.

Today, December 1, 2013, we are launching the Quid Pro Quills web page.  That's right... we're going BIG TIME!  Stop by and meet the ladies - known affectionately as "the Quids."  We plan to provide some fun stuff for readers who want a peek at the writers behind the quills.
