I’m very pleased to share this sneak peak from Laura Briggs’s latest book!
Rev. Dorothy Nickel Friesen, an ordained Mennonite pastor, digs deep into the soul of a pastor with humor, pathos, and passion. Her memoir, a collection of short stories based on true events, visits the agony of bedside death, lost dreams, and angry parishioners who walk away from her leadership. She also shares the laugh-out-loud stories of weddings (a missing groom), rituals of deep meaning (with water from the Jordan River), and tension-filled advocacy for peace (on a military base).

Skingley's book is a compelling memoir of post-war Britain and her experience there as a woman in the armed forces. I am particularly interested in reading this book because I enjoy reading about strong female leaders who aren't afraid to chase their dreams. The world needs more women who lead, and Skingley's story is an important piece of modern history.
A Christmas Hamster by Stephanie Dagg is an adorable romantic comedy for the holidays. It is super sweet as well as super cute, and just the right length to squeeze in during a busy holiday season.
The book is rich with historical details about England in the early Tudor period. I have a soft spot for novels set during this time in history, and Hickson's writing reminds me of another Philippa Gregory, who is one of my favorite authors.
