One of my goals for 2016 was to expand my reading, reading classics, varied authors and books. I was am using the Tim Challies reading challenge as a guide. I am also keeping a list of the books that I have read this year. I have begun to read classics, books I can't believe I have never read, new authors, and new topics.
Sometimes I just want to read something that is easy to read. For me that is Christian fiction from one of my favourite authors, Chautona Havig. I recently had the opportunity to be part of the launch team and preview Chautona Havig's new book, Ante Up the fourth in The Aggie's Inheritance Series.
It does help a bit if you have read the other books in the series as it introduces you to Aggie and her family of nieces and nephews as they become a family and through changes in life.
When we meet Aggie in Ready or Not, she is young and ready to for whatever is coming her way. Then the unexpected happens and she is becomes the guardian of her nieces and nephews. Aggie survives with the help of friends and through lots of hymns.
Life has changed for Aggie now married with a son and another child on the way. There have been other challenges in their lives as well. The Aggie that I knew is struggling things are not easy even to the point that she is no long singing.
This book shows us a new side of Aggie. Life is not easy and she is struggling in how she responds to life. She is pregnant which you can tell from the cover. I don't want to give you more details and ruin a good read.
Ante Up is now available. If you order by 7 July there is a free gift, Tune My Heart, a devotional based on hymns.
