Till We Have Faces by C.S. Lewis
This is a Greek myth retold. I really dislike any thing Greek and mythology is rather creepy and odd to me, but I have been trying to read all of C. S. Lewis's books and when I came to this myth I actually really enjoyed it. It's a very good story about two princess sisters; one is a gorgeous goddess and one is an ugly mortal. It's kind of deep (classic Lewis)... The struggles between sacred and profane love...a good story.
You Can Farm by Joel Salatin
Yes you can! It's more about owning and managing a farm based business. Very witty.
The Sacred Romance: Drawing Closer to the Heat of God by John Eldridge
The Bronze Bow by Elizabeth George Speare
This book is set in the time of Jesus and Romans. It is a little slow to begin with but stick with it...
The Witch of Blackbird Pond by Elizabeth George Speare
Another by Elizabeth. About the Salem Witch Trials.
Our Mutual Friend by Charles Dickens
This is a great story with several sub-plots and very unexpected twists and turns. I normally am not a fan of Dickens since all his works are very dark and his characters are soo weird. But a friend recommended that I watch the PBS series and I loved it so much that I read the book.
Also, loaded on the Kindle is Bleak House by Charles Dickens and on the iPod is Women in White by Wilkie Collins.
Give me a porch swing and a glass of lemonade.
