When her mother dies, Elizabeth Benjamin heads home to Key West, determined to transform herself into the perfect Southern belle her parents always wished her to be. But nothing goes according to plan. Her crippled brother resents her, the servants do not obey her, and Rourke O'Malley, the dashing man she vowed to forget, refuses to relinquish his hold on her heart. Worst of all, it becomes painfully obvious that her father is not the upright man he appears to be.
As family secrets come to light, Elizabeth is faced with a difficult choice: to do her duty and abandon her dreams, or to leave her life of privilege behind to chase the man her father sees as little better than a pirate.
From the first emotional page, author Christine Johnson throws readers into a world of impossible choices, hidden desires, and heart-melting romance in the steamy south. Readers will cheer for Elizabeth and Rourke as they battle the odds and the elements to secure their future.
After her mother died, Elizabeth Benjamin felt she could no long stay way from her only surviving family. With a small lie, she, her aunt, and her maid board a ship to Key West, home sweet home. As her aunt slowly freaks out every time the ship creaks, Elizabeth finds herself lost in memories both sad and happy. When the ship hits a reef, Elizabeth is unsure what will happen next.
Rourke O'Malley, a wrecker, finds himself racing to a sinking boat. Upon arriving at the boat, he learns that their are three passenger's in need of saving, one being the love he thought he lost forever. Pulling her and two other women from the wreckage, he finds that Elizabeth is no longer the same as she was when they were younger. She is both dainty and proper with a snake of an aunt always beside her. When he learns that she may be home for some time he believes he may finally have the chance to show her family just how amazing he can be.
But her father has secrets to hide and will do anything for Elizabeth to marry the man he wishes for her. As Rourke begins to pull away, she begins to believe that he doesn’t feel the same as she does. She discovers there may be more behind the truth than what Rourke or her father, for that matter, will tell. Her choice lying between two very different lives, Elizabeth must decide whether to follow her heart or her father’s decision.
Love’s Rescue is an amazing book. I really enjoyed the author’s writing. I can’t wait for book 2 to come out!

Amish woman Rosanna Zook lost her self-confidence within the confines of a loveless and abusive marriage. In the years spent quietly dealing with her burdens and dutifully caring for others, she forgot her sense of self and ability to feel. But after her first husband’s untimely death, she gets a second chance with Reuben Troyer, a godly man who welcomes Rosanna and her two children into his life.
Despite the love and respect she finds in her new marriage, Rosanna soon learns that juggling the demands of her family and church community is more than she can handle. When Rosanna becomes ill, she is forced to confront a hard truth: one empty cup cannot fill another. For a woman who has spent her life giving, will Rosanna finally be able to let go and receive?
Burnout comes to the human soul after giving, giving, and giving some more. When we have exhausted all efforts and have given too much of ourselves to whatever cause we deem favorable---we have burnout. We are just so past the point of exhaustion that nothing is fulfilling us anymore. One way to relieve this is to get away from everybody and everything. The main character in An Empty Cup, knows the feeling of hopelessness that burnout can bring. She herself being , An Empty Cup.
The author Sarah Price doesn't present her Amish characters in a fluffy manner or even in a very simple manner, she shows you the Amish people in real time with real troubles, and I like that. Rosanna Zook does what we all do, she overcommitted to the ones she loved but soon found out that if we don't learn to say no sometimes we will definitely take something that is suppose to fulfill us and turn it into a burden.

You don't have to tell me that marriage is downright hard. My husband and I have been married to each other, with this being our first and last marriage, for 20 years now---it doesn't get easier, but it definitely gets better. We recently the past year as a matter of fact have been working hard on our marriage, not that it was crumbling but there were definite cracks in the road that had went too long without repair. God took this time to walk us through some pretty heavy stuff, stuff that we didn't realize was weighing us down. We believe He did this so that we could shake it off completely and so we could drop it now and forever. And we thank Him everyday that He did this with us and for us. It was an eye-opening experience to say the least!
Growing A Strong Marriage DVD&Study Guide, is an excellent way to begin the journey of getting back to God and to one another. There are six couples that head up the DVD portion of the program that may look or sound familiar to you and that's because either one or both of the speakers have written well known books that either you have heard of or read throughout the years. This study is Biblical principle at it's best! My husband and I know that without God at our center we are automatically doomed. Our marriage has had it's emotional ups and downs and when it did we were not in a good place with the Lord.
Along with the DVD portion of the program or study, you can also purchase a study guide that walks you through each session that is a tremendous help. My husband and I did each session and listening to the speakers made it fun, because we knew exactly what they were talking about when they described issues in their own marriages. God should always be who you communicate with throughout the process of rebuilding your marriage, especially if you can no longer communicate with each other. I know in our marriage God is who turned everything around for us. We are thankful everyday for His intervention. He is an awesome Father that wants to see us work everything out, I can attest to that!
