Behind The Veils Of Yemen by Audra Grace Shelby
You think you know just by observing muslim women in the US who and what they are. Or at least for me what I assumed wasn't exactly the case.
Audra and her family embark on a journey as missionaries in Yemen. The story is told about who these muslim women are behind the their modest clothing. I thought they wore those burqa's 24/7. I didn't think they ever did their hair or wore make-up! I also thought they were attached to their husband's side at every waking moment. Like I said do not assume you know anything about muslim women.
Their faith is something else altogether. Most of the women can't even read their quran. Their faith is told to them by word of mouth. They can't study for themselves and those who can have been manipulated into thinking good works is the only way to heaven.
Audra encountered some great women in her time in Yemen. The story ends and you are grasping to want to know more. What happened when she went back. How many people did she show the Light of Jesus and how many accepted?
This book gives you a renewed sense of Who loves you more than anything, Who you need to trust with all of your heart, and Who should you put your faith in!

The Mercy by Beverly Lewis
I have loved all of Beverly Lewis's books up until now. I was a little bored with this series. I was glad to be done with this third book. I feel like the story of Rose and her family are a little bit here and there from her other books. It was well written, and it didn't feel rushed, just felt as if I had read this all before. This series would be great for someone who hasn't read Amish fiction before or who hasn't read anything from Beverly Lewis.

A Most Unsuitable Match by Stephanie Grace Whitson
This was a great book set back in time to the late 1800's. A love story about a wealthy girl with family secrets finds love in unexpected circumstances. Twists and turns in the story will keep you guessing until the very end. Somewhat predictable, but a cute quick read!
