As Faith is forced to confront the deceit that has long defined her, she moves closer to freeing those she loves from their torment. For only when the truth is finally told can Faith, her family and the man she loves make a new beginning.

review

This is going to be a pretty short review.

I love the characters, the plot, and the surrounding. The author took me there! This story gripped me from the opening paragraph. It was well written and I was captivated thoroughly. It is about love and discovery, but most of all, forgiveness.

I’ll definitely recommend this book although it’s from 2003. It’s so rare to come across 5-star stories lately, so this was refreshing.

VERDICT:

5

Teaser Tuesday: The Barcelona Job

We’re already panicking about the new season and pressuring the board to buy proper players although the La Liga is yet to kick off. This season, it’s all about the football life.ย 

Teaser Tuesday:

A week ago (or maybe it was two weeks ago? Not sure with the time flying by so fast), I announced my new writing projectย The Barcelona Job which I am currently writing during the 2017/18 football season. I must admit that I am nowhere near the 5th chapter as yet, but I’ll be getting there soon. I am currently trying to write the 3rd chapter.

It’s going to be an interesting season!

I am contemplating on sharing this story on Wattpad, but I am not sure if I’ll share it outside of my friends and family circle just yet.ย

A Sinner's Diary

Jer 7:23 But this is what I commanded them, saying, Obey My voice, and I will be your God, and you shall be My people; and walk in all the ways that I have commanded you, so that it may be well with you.

Jer 6:16 Thus says Jehovah, Stand in the ways and see, and ask for the old paths where the good way is, and walk in it, and you shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk in it.

I am not walking well. Physically, I mean. My back issues have cropped up again and I am hobbling at best. Soon I will have surgery again. Twice in two years, almost exactly a year apart is not a good trend! Maybe I can skip August from now onโ€ฆ

Let me clarify that Iโ€™m not asking for sympathy, although I do covetโ€ฆ

MI6 pushed back by ‘months’ after Tom Cruise hurt himself during a stunt

Meh! I told him to take aย vacationย and now, he’s getting one.

McQuarrie. Cruise. Cavill. MI6:

During the promotional tour forย The Mummy, Tom said that he loves what he does, has never been late to a set (right!) and never got injured (or did he say hardly? Rarely?). I remember telling my sister that he just jinxed himself because he is/was filmingย MI6 and a stunt could go wrong and he could injure himself. Welllll… on Sunday, Tom hurt himself during a roof-jumping stunt by slamming into a brick wall in London.ย 

OUCH!

Tom reportedly broke his ankle in two places and he will be out of action for a period of two months tops. This also means that filming is postponed until further notice. I bet he’s going to love telling the story of his injury when he starts promoting the film.

For the bitter people laughing at Tom’s pain, it is just sick and twisted wishing sickness and death upon a human being. Find something to do to occupy that hatred because Cruise is going to be okay and he’s going to be back.

Recover well, Tom. And I hate to say it, Tom, given that you don’t like to take vacations because every location you go to film is like a mini trip, but you’re going on vacation! ๐Ÿ˜›

August 15th: Freaky Friday

 :

You experience your own Freaky Friday, and switch bodiesย with someone you love/hate. Tell us what happens.

Dude, yes! I normally choose James Patterson for prompts such as these, but if I could switch bodies with someone for the weekend, I want it to be Hugo Lloris. I know he’s a dude, but he’s the reason why I have immense respect for goalkeepers. I’ll be goalkeeping for Tottenham Hotspur… or Les Bleus… I’m not picky. ๐Ÿ™‚
