I cannot remember all the books I read in 2007, but here are some of my favorites. <p>
<p> Shadow of Treason by Tricia Goyer<p>
<p> This side of Glory by Gwen Bristow– Gwen Bristow’s books are older, but  they are so well written and keep your attention so well, if you have not read one you should!  They are very historical so you learn a lot beside them. Did you know that in the 1920’s you could not sell cotton at all because of the war, then they decided to use cotton  as gun cotton for the war and it skyrocketed in price? I did not know that! Of course,  the prices were  low for things like cotton gingham was .12 a yard and I think that was expensive at the time! <p>
Summer by Karen Kingsbury– This was one that made me cry, but they were good tears. The character in the book struggles through a difficult pregnancy, where at the end she will not have a baby to hold.  It really delves deep into the feelings on abortion when  the baby cannot survive outside the womb. It was an incredible story! <p>  Color of the Soul and Freedom of the Soul by Tracy Bateman
This one was about racial discrimination and secrets among a family. You get to read the old journals with them as they discover family ties they did not know about.
<p> Claire series by Tracy Bateman– these were just fun books about the struggles of a single mom, writer etc.
<p>How to save money everyday by Ellie Kaye<p>
Homeschooling at the Speed of Life by Marilyn Rockett<p>
Dancing under the Red Star by Carl Tobien– Excellent book, biography of woman who survived Stalin’s Gulag<p>
Renovating Becky Miller by Sharon Hinck-
If you are a mom, you will enjoy this book. I loved both of them!  It really makes you think about what is important in life, is it how much you accomplish, all the rushing here and there, or is it the people in your life?  She has a great imagination as well which of course, I relate to well! <p>
<p> Yada yada group gets decked out- by Neta Jackson I almost did not read this series because of the title. I figured it was a silly stories about women. Was I ever wrong!! This year as the last one in the series and even though it was shorter than the others, it was as hard hitting and straight forward as the others. If you would like a fictional series that makes you stop, look around and think about your life while looking into women’s lives who could be real for all the normal struggles they go through, pick these ones up!
So, there is a brief look at some of the books I read, I am sure there are more I am forgetting, but these are the ones that I learned from and stood out to me!
