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.

Saving Hope ~ 4 Stars
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This book is very well written and I have book #2 sitting on my dresser ready to read. BUT I do feel like this book needs to come with a bit of a warning. While it is dealt with as carefully as possible there is some very serious subject matter in this book and I personally will be waiting a while before I allow my 13 yr old to read these books. There is just too much information and too much that would scare her in the area where we live.
Now some area's, girls at 13 might need a well written book like this from a Christian Lady to open their eyes and warn them...but I highly recommend parents read it first and decide on an individual basis.
This book deals with three (four really) sides of a major underage prostitution ring being run in TX.
One you have the parent/Texas Ranger who's daughter is the exact age the Ring is kidnapping. So he's trying to bust the bad guys but keep his daughter an innocent and it's not working so well for him.
Two you have the Rescue Center's Owner/Director that is trying to save these girls and somehow gets right in the middle of the mess the harder she tries to fix things the worse they get.
Three you have the few known bad guys who SOMEHOW keep getting by and slipping through every trap and is always one step ahead somehow.
Four you have the slime-ball who is backing the whole thing (silent partner) who was giving info to the bad guys.
I do love how Margaret takes time to develop each character not just two or three main ones! It makes for a far better book!
