About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

By the Light of the Silvery Moon Blog Tour and Giveaway!

   Tricia Goyer has delivered another suspenseful, historical masterpiece- with a bit of romance on the Titanic!  I was SO excited to be chosen to review her newest book, By the Light of the Silvery Moon.  Tricia delights and entertains with her richly developed characters, her vivid description of the Titanic itself as well as the mysterious background of Quentin Walpole.  What is he running from and why is he hiding from his family?  Amelia Gladstone is the lovely leading lady with a heart of gold.  She's on her way to meet the man that has secured her passage on the Titanic.  They've only conversed through letters.  He's a good man but what does their future hold?  Quentin Walpole is Quentin's jealous older brother and you can never be sure where his heart truly lies.  Even the minor characters were thoughtfully written and this made the book all the more engaging.

   By the Light of the Silvery Moon has a deliciously suspenseful story line as well as endearing characters and you certainly can't beat the setting- the maiden voyage of the Titanic!  I really enjoyed the love triangle between Amelia Gladstone and the two brothers, Damien and Quentin.  I also loved reading about the details (quotes, decor, people, etc.) of the Titanic as I know Tricia Goyer throughly researches her history. Tricia Goyer never fails to delight her audience!

About the book:
Amelia Gladstone's hopes are tied up in the Titanic--hopes for a reunion with her sister and an introduction to an admirer. But when she offers a spare ticket to a down-and-out young man, her fate is about to change.

Quentin Walpole is stunned when a sweet lady secures his passage to America--and even more surprised to find his wealthy father and older brother on board the ship. Suddenly Amelia finds herself caught between the attentions of two men, but who should she entrust her heart to? As the fateful night arrives, will Amelia lose everything to the icy waters?
