I almost missed the Nightstand post completely this month — the months with five Tuesdays throw me off. Plus my youngest son graduated Monday (more on that tomorrow!), my oldest flew in for a long weekend, we’ve been doing lots of family things, and I haven’t been on the computer much at all for the last few days.
But thankfully I saw someone mention it on Facebook, so I’m late to the party, but I’m here!
Since last month I’ve completed:
The Fiddler by Beverly Lewis, not reviewed yet, but enjoyed. A classically trained violinist who loves to “fiddle” when she can, unbeknownst to her family and friends, breaks down when traveling during a storm outside a cabin of a young Amish man who is planning to leave the Amish and “go English.” They are kind of on parallel tracks, though in different circumstances, wrestling with the expectations of those they love versus their own desires.
I am currently reading/listening to:
It Is Not Death to Die: A New Biography of Hudson Taylor by Jim Cromarty. I didn’t realize it was quite so long (480+ pages) when I ordered it, and I’m only about halfway through.
Chasing Mona Lisa by Tricia Goyer and Mike Yorkey, about Swiss OSS agents trying to keep the famous painting from German hands.
Wives and Daughters by Elizabeth Gaskell (audiobook). Loving it so far.
Up next: These are carried over from my “Up next” section from last month’s Nightstand. 🙂
Infinitely More by Alex Krutov, nonfiction about an abandoned orphan in Russia whom God brought to Himself.
When Crickets Cry by Charles Martin.
Raising Real Men: Surviving, Teaching, and Appreciating Boys by Hal and Melanie Young.
