I love reading, Christian, Biographies, Autobiographies, Cookbooks, Fiction, Historical Fiction, History, Memoir, Mystery, Romance, Suspense, Thriller, Parenting, Marriage, Christian Counseling, Health, Natural and Herbal, Childcare and Teaching, Inspirational as well as Alaskan.

I prefer a printed copy that I can hold in my hands and become old friends with, but will also accept E-books in Kindle, PDF or Nook formats.

I am a Christian and seek to glorify my Lord. As such I will not read any erotic, paranormal, vampire, or such books. I also will stop reading any book that has bad language (Cursing and taking my Lord’s name in vain.), and books with gratuitous sex. This is one reason I have chosen to be associated with the Publishing Companies and the Authors that are on my site because I feel safe recommending them to others.

Shakespear's Lady

Shakespeare's LadyShakespeare's Lady by Alexa Schnee
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I was surprised and a little disappointed in the way this book was portrayed to me and sent to me as a Christian book. I did not find this to be a Christian book in any sense of the word. Other than the main character rubbing her cross on her necklace throughout the book and being raised to feel that even though she was ordered by the Queen to do things she knew were a sin. The Queen was her sovereign and next to God so she felt she had to obey.
Then once she felt she had done so much wrong by order of the Queen, it was easy to make the choice to sin for her one chance at happiness.
All in all I found it a very sad and depressing, hopeless life, with no joy, no Christ and no Salvation.
The writing was very good for someone so young and the research was well done but I personally would not consider this a Christian book by a long stretch of the imagination.
