I loved reading thi"Mirrored Hearts - Sealed by Fire" by Ann Marie Bryan is an amazing novel! This particular novel deals with the topic of adultery. I loved reading this book because adultery is not a topic that many authors address. Ann Marie breaches the topic from a Christian perspective. The characters in the novel face very serious consequences and have to choose to forgive or continue down their destructive paths.
The main characters in the novel are: Larry, Chandler, and Rozene. Ann Marie did a great job developing each character. Many times while reading the novel I could feel their emotions, and I wanted to shake them a few times. There were shocking revelations, but in the end true love and forgiveness overcame every obstacle.
This story is very well written. You won't be able to put it down. The characters will touch your heart, but most of all you will be able to feel the love of God. It is also very clear that this author is woman of God and her heart seeks to help couples heal through her writing.
I would recommend this novel to believers and unbelievers alike. This novel would also be great for couples to read together. They could address this difficult topic neutrally by discussing the characters, their actions, and their overall choices.
I gave this book 5/5 stars. This is a great work of Christian Fiction. Thank you Ann Marie Bryan. Your obedience will help many marriages. ...more

She was raised by h"Not of This World" by Jessica LeeAnn is a story about a young lady named Tamar. Tamar is saved, sanctified and Holy Ghost filled. She was raised by her grandmother and has grown into a beautiful, God fearing young lady. In this story, Tamar struggles with desiring to be independent from the watchful eye of her grandmother and loving herself. After landing her dream job, Tamar begins to drastically change and her family and friends try to understand why.
This story is a page turner from beginning to the end. The plot line is unique and does not have your typical ending. This is a wonderful eye opener of how conforming and desiring the things of this world can draw us away from those who care most about us and our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Tamar's conflict will help you understand that any one of us could find ourselves in her situation. We must draw near and grow in our relationship with Christ and His keeping power!
Overall, if you enjoy reading a good story with a little drama, but a serious message, then "Not of This World" is the book for you! I give this novel 5 stars. There aren't many novels out there that teach on holiness and a closer relationship with Christ. I can't wait for Book 2.

In the end, the love of Christ and love for one another caused them to triumph and overcome their difficult times.
