Somewhere Around the Corner

I enjoyed the book not only for the story but the great discussion points. The phrase “somewhere around the corner” is repeated throughout and symbolizes a person’s dreams for the future – and that the character had to walk around the corner themselves and go get their dreams.


Choogoowarra: Australian Sheep Station

This is another book I found at the library. My first impression was “old and outdated” because, well, it is old and outdated! The topic interested me though; I was curious how the sheep stations differed from American ranches

Nehemiah: A Heart That Can Break

Nehemiah’s heart was broken for his people, and God appointed him to be a catalyst. He was also very wise and strong. I aspire to be like him – to love God, allow Him to break my heart for what breaks His, and to keep from being deceived.

The Big Wave

I checked this book out from the library because it was both on Sonlight’s Core F reading list, as well as on My Father’s World’s library reading list. After skimming it though, I felt it was too much sadness for the girls right now…I have read some of Pearl S. Buck’s books in the past and loved them, and I really would like to read this one in the future – maybe as summer reading.

Tucky Jo and Little Heart

This book is precious for one simple fact – it’s true! The storyline appears to be straight from fiction. A young soldier, a traumatized and starving little girl with a heart tattoo… a nurse returning a life-long favor to an old man. I’m so glad Johnnie Wallen’s story was told so it’s not lost to future generations.
