I enjoy reading. Since becoming an author, I have appreciated folks who will write a review on my book. So, when I came across the opportunity to review new books, I jumped on it. It helps the author to grow an audience as well as to help people decide what book to purchase.

This is one of those sweet Amish books. I enjoy these because they are so easy to follow – and so relatable.

As I read through it, I had the sense I was right there, in the culture and era. Very relatable, real life and with a biblical foundation.

Hebrews 12:1-2 says to look to Jesus who is the author and finisher of our faith. What a powerful word to speak to us today, in the year 2020.

Softly Blows the Bugle, is a story of togetherness. (we sure do need a tribe like never before).

Without giving the story line away, it is a sweet and simple message.

Part of that message is when we miss one stitch (if we are sewing a pattern) will affect the whole design. It becomes uneven, unbalanced – hard to work with.

Life happens, marriage, death, finding another mate to walk through life again – sometimes we don’t look for a mate, but the opportunity walks across our path. When the Lord leads two people together, we don’t often see it for what it is. A gift.

Enjoy this tender yet real life story. Sweet and simple.
