Share Your World – 2014 Week 37

http://ceenphotography.com/2014/09/15/share-your-world-2014-week/

List three pet peeves.

  1. Ignorance
  2. People who litter
  3. Parents who do not read to their pre-school children

What makes you unique?

I’m very tall for a woman; 6′ 4″

Would be your ideal birthday present, and why?

I would love to spend a month at a spa, where healthy eating, meditation, and yoga prevailed. Why? Because I feel that a month of following this routine would give me a head start on making a life change.

Which way does the toilet paper roll go? Over or under?

Under

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

I am grateful that the cardiologist didn’t find an immediate problem with my heart. I do have to have a echocardiograph and a stress test, but hopefully these will show a healthy heart.

Last week my youngest grandson was sick with a cold virus and running a low-grade fever, so he couldn’t go to daycare. I kept him from Wednesday morning until Saturday afternoon, so mommy could work. I am grateful that I was able to help, but I got way behind on my writing. This week I look forward to getting a lot of writing done. I am starting to publish some of my short stories on Wattpad. Check them out if you get a chance. Just look for D. B. Mauldin. I appreciate any feedback that I can get. :)

Passion’s Vision – A Book Review

Passion's Vision 1

SUMMARY

New Moon is a warrior. She and her husband fought together in many battles. Now she mourns the death of her husband whose life was taken by a white man. Her spirit is troubled by the vision of a white man soon to arrive in her village. Is he the one? Will she finally answer the blood cry? James Fitzgerald is an agent in King George’s court. He is commissioned to blend into Dancing Cloud’s village and uncover and botch the plans of a French agent creating discord and bloody conflict between the settlers and the Cherokee. Two warriors’ from different worlds meet and clash. Soon it is revealed their survival depends on their ability to overcome their differences and defeat those who seek to destroy them both. Their growing love will demand nothing less than total surrender.

BOOK REVIEW

Passion’s Vision by Mary Adair is a well written, historically correct, love story. Mary Adair writes with descriptive words that pull the reader in and allows them to experience life in the Appalachian Mountains of South Carolina in 1734.

The characters are strong and the story paints a picture of the Cherokee customs during the time period. The unlikely love between New Moon and Panther transcends race, blooming into a love with mutual beliefs and respect. The story contains a hint of the paranormal.

I recommend this book to all who enjoy reading accounts of history, love, and the paranormal.

I received a free PDF copy of this book from Story Cartel in exchange for an honest review.

Behold the Dawn – A Book Review

Behold the Dawn

SUMMARY

Marcus Annan, a tourneyer famed for his prowess on the battlefield, thought he could keep the secrets of his past buried forever. But when a mysterious crippled monk demands Annan help him find justice for the transgressions of sixteen years ago, Annan is forced to leave the tourneys and join the Third Crusade.

Wounded in battle and hunted by enemies on every side, he rescues an English noblewoman from an infidel prison camp and flees to Constantinople. But, try as he might, he cannot elude the past. Amidst the pain and grief of a war he doesn’t even believe in, he is forced at last to face long-hidden secrets and sins and to bare his soul to the mercy of a God he thought he had abandoned years ago.

BOOK REVIEW

I’m sure Behold the Dawn by K.M. Weiland is a well-written book, but it held no interest for me. The blurb sounded interesting, but the reality was that it failed to capture my interest from the beginning. I do not like giving bad reviews, so I forced myself to read the first six chapters, but, for me, the book was getting less interesting, instead of better.

I’m going to say it was just the story matter that I could not get into. This book may be a wonderful read for those who like battle scenes, it was just not for me.
