An Insignificant Life (The Maryland State University #2)An Insignificant Life by Connie Almony

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is book 2 in the Maryland University Series. I haven’t read the first one, but I really enjoyed this second one. It’s a story about an RA advisor, Tiffany, in one of the dorms who has had an abortion. She finds herself in a compromising position while out at a bar. Adam, one of the campus police is at the bar and witnesses a man trying to force her to leave with him. Adam, who is a Christian comes to her rescue. She has had too much to drink and confesses all to Adam. It’s the story of redemption, forgiveness and love. I highly reccomend it.

Daffodils (The Katherine Wheel, #1)Daffodils by Alex Martin

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was such a good book! I was sorry to see it end. I actually have already gotten the next book in the series. The setting is England prior to WWI, and during the war in France. It’s the story of Katy, who started her life in service from the age of 13. It’s the transformation of craving excitememt, to becoming a married woman. She loses her child, becomes very ill, and then when she recovers her husband joins up to fight. It’s the story 0f how she thought he had been killed, and enlisting in the WAAC so she can search for him; becoming an ambulance mechanic and finally, when the war ends finding her husband. The story ends with the village throwing them a big welcome home party. I can’t wait to read the next in the series.
