To the Fourth Generation by Chick Yuill

Well I think with every book Chick writes he finds his feet more and more. I’ve been reading quite a lot of ‘heavy’ books and I wanted some fiction - and it pulled me through all afternoon as I read it largely in one go! As always, questions of faith ...more

Seeing Miss Heartstone by Nichole Van
Seeing Miss Heartstone

A pretty decent regency romance - with a strong female character and a decent plot line - and thankful that unlike many - doesn’t feel the need for a sex scene... which always feels pretty unbelievable for regency ... although some would say a 19 yea ...more

The Weight of Things by Marianne Fritz

I couldn’t decide whether to go for 3 because I got quite lost in this book, or 4, because that seemed to be the point - giving and insight into the traumatised mind of one of the main characters. Set around/between WW1 and WW2 there’s quite a lot of ...more

As someone who’s dealing with breast cancer (incurable), has trained as a life coach in the past (and finds a lot of aspects of it helpful), and someone of faith - this was a really interesting book (well referenced) demonstrating the origins of what ...more

The Girl in the Pink Raincoat by Alrene Hughes
Rate this book
Clear rating
Set in the Second World War - in Manchester - this Story has a real mix of sad/happy ... and trots along at a good pace. Read pretty much in one go - not too saccharine - characters feel well rounded.

Undecided about 4 (because doing crazy dangerous things) but a 5 because the book is v well written and really draws you into the story of how Joe Simpson broke his legs miles up a mountain, then fell down a crevasse - thought he was done for, and th ...more

I was curious - think picked this up for 25p - as like most teenagers I read ‘Forever’ - and in some ways the book feels v similar - but with a more sophisticated storyline woven in between. The book does centre on the main character but also offers ...more

Henri J.M. Nouwen
“When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares.”
Henri Nouwen, Out of Solitude: Three Meditations on the Christian Life

Henri J.M. Nouwen
“As soon as we are alone,...inner chaos opens up in us. This chaos can be so disturbing and so confusing that we can hardly wait to get busy again. Entering a private room and shutting the door, therefore, does not mean that we immediatel;y shut ou all our iner doubts, anxieities, fears, bad memories, unresolved conflicts, angry feelings and impulsive desires. On the contrary, when we have removed our outer distraction, we often find that our inner distraction manifest themselves to us in full force. We often use the outer distractions to shield ourselves from the interior noises. This makes the discipline of solitude all the more important.”
Henri J.M. Nouwen, Making All Things New and Other Classics

Corrie ten Boom
“Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God.”
Corrie ten Boom

C.S. Lewis
“Surely you know that if a man can't be cured of churchgoing, the next best thing is to send him all over the neighbourhood looking for the church that "suits" him until he becomes a taster or connoisseur of churches.”
C.S. Lewis, The Screwtape Letters

Howard Schultz
“Mass advertising can help build brands, but authenticity is what makes them last. If people believe they share values with a company, they will stay loyal to the brand.”
Howard Schultz, Pour Your Heart Into It: How Starbucks Built a Company One Cup at a Time
