REVIEW: The Two of Us by Victoria Bylin

Nurse practitioner Mia Robinson had a quick jolt to adulthood when she took on raising her 10 year old sister at her own 20 years of age. Fast forward about 10 years to Lucy’s time to make her own life. Mia wants to make sure that Lucy is making wise decisions; she’s protective with good right. It’s also a time for Mia, though, to get her own God-directed path in line. Into the picture enters Jake with PTSD who is great friends with Lucy’s guy, Sam. Mia wrestles with the missionary plans she has had for years.

I found the story to have more depth than expected and I enjoyed it greatly. Thanks to Bethany House for providing me an ARC for a review in my own words.

REVIEW: The Things We Keep by Sally Hepworth

Anna and Luke, perhaps star-crossed lovers, reside at Rosalind House as each has early onset Alzheimer’s disease.  Anna’s brother chose the location since the assisted living facility had another young person, Luke, with the same affliction.  The story gives insight into the possible thoughts and loves of an Alzheimer’s victim.  Readers also meet chef Eve Bennett and her daughter.  They are both trying to survive the betrayal of Eve’s husband through a Ponzi scheme and then his suicide.  Eve and her daughter need to mend and the slow pace of Rosalind House provides refuge for them, too.
