Ausjenny | 4 comments Bridge to a Distant Star A Novel by Carolyn Williford this is a really good contemporary story.


message 7: by Libby (new)

Libby I nominate "Riven"Riven: A Novel by Jerry Jenkins. It was absolutly wonderful and very encouraging to someone who has been faithful but not seen any fruit from their ministry.Also not to give up on someone no matter how lost they seem. This book touched my heart in more ways than one. Author said this is the book that he has always wanted to write.Would be a great book to discuss

Oh my goodness!!! The Sunshine Skyway bridge in Tampa actually did collapse years ago, and I have a friend who is terrified of it and refuses to go over it when we go to the beach. She's starting to make me paranoid of bridges myself. -I just HAD to share that;)

Marla Schwartz (marlalynns) I always enjoy reading books that other people recommend. I am always looking for new books and authors so I am willing to read whatever is decided on.
