Happy Tuesday, reader friends. I’ve gone rogue for Top Ten Tuesday today. This week’s topic with That Artsy Reader Girl is Books I disliked/hated but am really glad I read. I have a grant total of ONE book on that list: Vanity Fair. It probably could have been half of its 800+ pages and still told the same story (which was oddly unsatisfying in the end anyway), but I can say I stuck it out and made it to the end—for what it’s worth.
But I’m not sure one book qualifies as a list, so I put my thinking cap on. And adjusted it. And took it off and checked that I had actually grabbed my thinking cap (because it wasn’t working very well). And put it back on. And pulled it on a little tighter. And stared at my computer screen. And FINALLY hit on Mother’s Day as my inspiration for this week’s post. (Are you feeling the brain strain, folks?!) Continue reading

~ About the Book ~
In a richly-textured, controversial and provocative literary work, award-winning author Latayne C. Scott examines: What would it have been like to be a woman, a Gentile, and someone onto whom the Holy Breath moved – to produce what became the mysterious Epistle to the Hebrews in the Bible?
“This book changed me, deepened my love for The Breath, and swelled my appreciation for those who sacrificed so much to ensure people like me…could turn the parchment pages and read Truth for ourselves. I didn’t want to leave this story and fear Latayne has spoiled me as a reader. That’s how thoroughly it captivated my heart and rearranged my definition of elegant and life-altering storytelling.” Cynthia Ruchti, Golden Scroll-winning author of A Fragile Hope and Song of Silence.

Welcome to First Line Friday, hosted by Hoarding Books! We have a Mother’s Day theme this week, which works in well with the book that I’m currently reading: Becoming the Talbot Sisters by Rachel Linden. For many people, Mother’s Day is a day of celebration, but for others, it can be a bittersweet day. A day when they are also reminded of loss or of unfulfilled dreams, such as Waverly Talbot’s impossible dream of becoming a mother.
PS. You can also check out my interview with Rachel Linden here.
