Hello everyone,

It’s another book club Thursday; another chance to start into a new book. I once read a saying off a wall some months back about how reading a book is like an invitation to experience a whole new world that we’ve never seen. And that’s so true. A book gives us a chance to relax, step away from the issues and problems we are facing and step in on someone’s perspective or world carved with words on that issue or a similar one. It’s indeed a beautiful privilege and honor to be invited to a world we’ve never been; and it only takes flipping the pages of a good book. This month, I picked up a good book already and this time its fiction. I’ve been reading one of Francine Rivers latest series (The Martha legacies) titled ‘Her Mother’s Hope’. So far it’s been an adventurous ride.

Rivers, one of the frontier authors of the Christian Contemporary fiction genre made her first break into the Christian writing market in 1991 with her popularly acclaimed novel ‘Redeeming Love’. Before then she wrote romance novels for the mainstream section but things changed in 1986 when she became a born again Christian. Her new series (The Martha legacies) focuses on family and finding strength to fulfill one’s dreams. Francine Rivers who is an acclaimed and skilled writer even in mainstream circles has delivered another one which I would sincerely recommend. Though when I first saw this book on the book stand, I was a bit turned off by it's cover, considering it a bit sentimental, but  I was reminded a book should never be judged by it's cover. Are you going to the bookstore this month? Let it be ‘Her Mother’s hope’ and feel free to share your views and reactions when done reading.

Below are the book details
