Book Review--A life of Faith:Kathleen McKenzie. Books 1-2

Hey y'all! I'm really sorry the book review is late again this week.
I totally forgot about it until last night and it was a bit to late to post in then!
We've been having beautiful weather here. A bit cold Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday but up in the 70s today. I've been outside in flip-flops, a short sleeved blouse and cotton skirt. (If you haven't already guessed, My favorite, FAVORITE season is summer!)
 Now the review.


Kathleen's Shaken Dream's and Kathleen's Unforgettable Winter, By Tracy Leininger Craven

Kathleen is a city girl through and through. She enjoys school, hanging out with her friends and spelling! After getting injured in a foot race, she meets Lucy. The two girls become inseparable. Suddenly everything changes. The stock market crash of 1929 causes Kathleen's father to lose her her job and forces the family out of their city home.The move to the old family farm is difficult. Kathleen must learn to cope with things she had never even imagined. Milking a cow, riding a horse, shooting a rifle and dealing with a troublesome cousin, are all things Kathleen would rather do without. But she starts to adjust to the change and realizes that as hard as the change has been, it has drawn her closer to God and closer to her family. Just when she is beginning to accept and even enjoy her new life, her father gets a job offer. Kathleen is thrilled! But in the same post Kathleen gets bad new from Lucy.  What will this next chapter in her life bring? Will her faith continue to be strengthened? Or will she doubt God's plan for her life?

  1. Oh yes! I love this series! Have you read the last two in the series yet? I really like how it's focused around God, and she leans on Him through hard times.
    Btw, we ordered some of the Adventures in the Northwoods books from Amazon for an incredible price, I'm part-way through the first one and it is really great =D

    2. I was given the whole series about a year or two ago, so I wouldn't know. I'm sure Amazon would have them though.

  4. www.lightoffaith.com might still have some. Last I heard they were out of print.

    One thing about this post is that you didn't ever tell what you personally thought of the books. I think that is part of a helpful review. :)

    1. I didn't say what I thought because I haven't read the whole series. But so far I REALLY like them!
